Work to maximum load is a meas- ure of the combined strength and toughness of wood under bending stresses. Compressive strength parallel to grain—Maximum stress sustained by a compression parallel-to-grain speci- men having a ratio of length to least dimension of less than 11. Compressive stress perpendicular to
Flexural Strength of Wood. Wood Wood is a porous and fibrous structural tissue found in the stems and roots of trees and other woody plants. It has been used for thousands of years for both fuel and as a construction material. It is an organic material, a natural composite of cellulose fibers (which are strong in tension)
Wood strength, including the relationship between grain direction and strength, specific gravity as an indication of wood strength, and additional ways to measure wood strength. Part of the Bending strength (also known as the modulus of rupture) shows the load the wood can withstand perpendicular to the grain.
The Flexural test measures the force required to bend a beam under 3 point loading conditions. The data is often used to select materials for parts that will support loads without flexing. ○. The test provides values for the modulus of elasticity in bending, flexural stress, flexural strain and the flexural stress-strain response of

Apr 30, 2012 Wood is commonly tested for flexural strength. This video shows a 2 x 4 supported on each end by supports. A universal testing machine is used to apply force
Tensile strength in the direction of the grain is usually 10-20 times more than its strength perpendicular to the grain. Tensile strength also depends on the density of the wood: for example, the tensile strength of the spring wood in a pine is only 1/6 of that of summer wood. The compression strength of air-dry wood is about
