Test on timber

The purpose of this Standard is to set test methods useful for a correct mechanical qualification for: wood, plywood, laminated block-boards, honeycomb wood, wood fibers, chipboard (MDF, ..), lamellar.

Although less employed than in the past, wood still plays an important role in the industry by finding its uses also in areas where mechanical stress is one of the discriminating factors such as for industrial packaging or constructions. Tests available on wood are many: tensile, compression, flexure, shear, Screws removal from panels, delamination. 

In case of tensile testing, wedge or pincer grips with flat inserts are suitable grating a range of use for thickness and for specimen width.  Several devices are available for other tests.
