Abstract : The mechanical grading of sawn softwoods has to be based on properties which can be determined by a nondestructive testing. The property that lies nearest to hand is the modulus of elasticity. The correlation between the strength and the modulus of elasticity has been the base for different equipment constructed for strengthgrading of timber. The study intends to throw further light on some of the measuring problems at a rational determination of the modulus in practice. (Author)
