Description: Four equations are presented to determine bending stiffness using transverse vibration. These equations are used for constant cross-section products, panels, rectangular cross-section products, and logs with and without taper. Practical considerations for their use are discussed and concluding remarks are included.
Keywords: Wood products, mechanical properties, testing, nondestructive testing, bending, vibrational properties, equations, taper, bending strength, modulus of elasticity, elasticity, stiffness, transverse vibration, bending stiffness, constant cross section, panels, rectangular cross section, logs
