The mechanical properties of New Zealand-grown radiata pine for export to Australia



The mechanical properties of New Zealand-grown radiata pine for export to Australia



FRI Bulletin, Forest Research Institute, New Zealand (93): 27



Radiata pine trees aged 16-47 yr were sampled from 33 sites throughout New Zealand. Tests on static bending, compression parallel to the grain, shear parallel to the grain, and hardness were made on small clear specimens. The effects of density, cambial age and ring width on strength properties were all highly significant, although ring width was not significant when all 3 were considered together.
