Description: Acoustics have been used to determine wood quality attributes in both standing timber and sawn lumber. Sonic transmission data are collected non-destructively and can act as a surrogate for stiffness, they are directly related to modulus of elasticity (MOE) and closely related to differences in microfibril angle (MFA). Together with wood density, MFA and MOE are the most important wood characteristics that affect solid wood properties.
Keywords: Acoustics, sonic velocity, wood quality, stiffness, MOE, MFA Loblolly pine, Pinus teada L.
