    1. Scope

    1.1 These test methods cover determination of the bending strength and stiffness of wood poles. Knowledge of these properties is used in providing for reliable and economical design with poles of different species, size, or grade.

    1.2 Two test methods are included: the cantilever test method and the machine test method.

    1.3 Provision is also made for extracting small clear specimens from the butt section and determining static bending and compression parallel to grain strength values in accordance with Test Methods D143.

    1.4 The procedures specified in these test methods apply to tests of either treated or untreated material.

    1.5 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as the standard. SI values are given in parentheses and are provided for information only.

    1.6 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
