Due to difficulties in determining modulus of elasticity of wood, only strain or deflection profiles caused by relaxation of internal stress are normally evaluated for industrial kiln-dried lumber. To directly assess the level of internal stress within the lumber, a new technique of measuring the restoring force on a half-split specimen has been presented(More)
For a quantification of internal stress within industrial kiln-dried timber, a comparison of a new restoring force (RF) technique is made against the McMillen slice test and the standard case-hardening test. Simulation of the RF has been performed by using a numerical model of finite element (FE) analysis. 30 mm thick industrial kiln-dried rubberwood timber(More)
