ASTM WK41452

    Revision of D1990 - 07 Standard Practice for Establishing Allowable Properties for Visually-Graded Dimension Lumber from In-Grade Tests of Full-Size Specimens

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: D1990 - 14

    Developed by Subcommittee: D07.02 | Committee D07 | Contact Staff Manager



    WK41452

    1. Rationale

    During the recent Southern Pine design value submission it was clear that there was insufficient guidance in the standard to allow for a consistent application of the GQI calculations. Linda Brown of SPIB has been willing to take on task of revising the wording and serve as a task group chair. This new work item for D1990 that will allow us to revise the language in D1990 to further define how the GQI values should be calculated and rounded.
