Title: NDE of logs and standing trees using new acoustic tools : technical application and results

Author: Carter, Peter; Wang, Xiping; Ross, Robert J.; Briggs, David

Date: 2005

Source: Proceedings of the 14th International Symposium on Nondestructive Testing of Wood : May 2-4, 2005, University of Applied Sciences, Eberswalde, Germany. Aachen, Germany : Shaker Verlag, 2005: pages 161-169

Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication

Description: The new Director ST300 provides a means to efficiently assess stands for stiffness and related wood properties based on standing tree acoustic velocily measures, and can be easily integrated with pre-harvest and earlier stand assessments. This provides for effective valuation for forest sale, stumpage purchase, harvest planning, and ranking of progeny or clones in tree breeding programs.

Keywords: Wood, mechanical properties, nondestructive testing, microfibrils, acoustic testing, log grading, grading, stiffness, standing trees
