Historical (view previous versions of standard)
Significance and Use
5.1 The dynamic modulus of elasticity provided by these test methods is a fundamental property for the configuration tested. This value can be related to static and other dynamic moduli of elasticity as measured on the same configuration.
1.1 These test methods cover the determination of the flexural stiffness and modulus of elasticity (E) properties of wood-based materials by nondestructive testing using transverse vibration in the vertical direction.
1.3 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.
