Comparative Study on Four Different Methods for Measuring the Dynamic Modulus of Elasticity of Acer Mono Wood
The dynamic modulus of elasticity (MOE) of forty one small Acer mono clear wood specimens was tested via stress wave, ultrasonic wave, edgewise vibration and flatwise vibration method respectively in laboratory. Then the static MOE of these specimens was measured with static bending test. The correlations between dynamic and static MOE were analyzed using linear regression method, and the difference of various methods was discussed using paired t test. The results show that the dynamic MOE of wood measured by four methods described above are higher than the static MOE, but their linear correlation is significantly strong. Thus, it is feasible to estimate static MOE using these four methods. Additionally, the mean of paired difference between static MOE and dynamic MOE tested by flatwise vibration method is least, and the correlation highest. Therefore, it is better to use flatwise vibration method to estimate static MOE of wood.
