Abstract
Several nondestructive evaluation (NDE) technologies were studied to determine their efficacy as scanning devices to detect internal moisture and artificial decay pockets. Large bridge-sized test specimens, including sawn timber and glued-laminated timbe...

Abstract
Models for estimation of structural properties of glued laminated timber (glulam) are generally based on the relationship between properties of the individual laminations and properties of the glulam. In this investigation, a recently presented machine s...
