Universal Testing Machine

(a) To determine the compressive strength of clear timber test pieces, considering the
anisotropy of timber;
(b) To determine the bending (flexural) strength of clear timber test pieces, considering the
anisotropy effect;
(c) To determine the strength of commercial timber in bending, considering the effect of
defects on its strength and stiffness;
(d) To contrast the failure mechanisms associated with the tests performed;
(e) To compare the strengths obtained in the experiment with stresses that are placed on
timber in service;
(f) To check the effect of timber type on the physical and mechanical properties measured;
(g) To establish the effect of test conditions and specimen preparation on the stiffness of
timber;
(h) To become familiar with the testing procedure associated with the grading process and
that described by the relevant AS.
