Title: Evaluation of acoustic tomography for tree decay detection

Author: Liang, Shanquing; Wang, Xiping; Wiedenbeck, Janice; Cai, Zhiyong; Fu, Feng

Date: 2008

Source: In: Proceedings of the 15th international symposium on nondestructive testing of wood; 2007 September 10-12; Duluth, MN. Forest Products Society: 49-54.

Publication Series: Journal/Magazine Article (JRNL)

Description: In this study, the acoustic tomography technique was used to detect internal decay in high value black cherry (Prunus seratina) trees. Two-dimensional images of the cross sections of the tree samples were constructed using PiCUS Q70 software. The trees were felled following the field test, and a disc from each testing elevation was subsequently cut and evaluated in the laboratory.
