DESCRIPTION

BS EN 408:2010+A1:2012


This standard BS EN 408:2010+A1:2012 Timber structures. Structural timber and glued laminated timber. Determination of some physical and mechanical properties is classified in these ICS categories:
  • 91.080.20 Timber structures
  • 79.040 Wood, sawlogs and sawn timber
  • 79.060.99 Other wood-based panels

This European Standard specifies test methods for determining the following properties of structural timber and glued laminated timber: modulus of elasticity in bending; shear modulus; bending strength; modulus of elasticity in tension parallel to the grain; tension strength parallel to the grain; modulus of elasticity in compression parallel to the grain; compression strength parallel to the grain; modulus of elasticity in tension perpendicular to the grain; tension strength perpendicular to the grain; modulus of elasticity in compression perpendicular to the grain; compression strength perpendicular to the grain and shear strength.

In addition, the determination of dimensions, moisture content, and density of test pieces are specified.

The methods apply to rectangular and circular shapes (of substantially constant cross section) of solid unjointed timber or finger-jointed timber and glued laminated timber unless stated otherwise.
