The mechanical and physical properties of Gardenia thunbergia (white gardenia) wood


The mechanical and physical properties of Gardenia thunbergia (white gardenia) wood



Southern African Forestry Journal 182: 55-58

DOI: 10.1080/10295925.1998.9631190

Small billets of Gardenia thunbergia from the Eastern Cape (South Africa) were evaluated for their mechanical and physical properties. As a result of the hardness and toughness of the timber it could be used for tools, implement handles, buttons and agricultural implements. The wood has a fine grain and can take a high polish. Flexural properties are unique in the sense that the MOR is high but the stiffness low. It was found that the wood bent quite excessively before failure occurred.
