    1. Scope

    1.1 These test methods cover the evaluation of lumber in structural size by various testing procedures.

    1.2 The test methods appear in the following order:

    Sections
    Flexure
    Compression (Short Column)
    Compression (Long Member)
    Tension
    Torsion
    Shear Modulus

    1.3 Notations and symbols relating to the various testing procedures are given in Appendix X1.

    1.4 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.
