Monitoring the bending strength of sawn timber by the knot projection area

Monitoring the bending strength of sawn timber by the knot projection area

Lesnoi Zhurnal (3): 66-70

In view of the introduction of the 'KAR and KAM' method of grading lumber in Canada, USA and Britain, investigations were made in the USSR on the suitability of the method (using the knot projection area of the whole cross-section and of the part near the edges) for evaluating the strength of home-grown Scots pine lumber.
