Deformation Measurement of Wood Subjected to Shearing Loads Using Electronic Speckle Pattern Interferometry
The two-dimensional deformation of wood under shearing loads is measured using an electronic speckle pattern interferometry (ESPI) technique. The radical and tangential sections of Douglas firs are used as specimens in the longitudinal direction. Results reveal that large two-dimensional deformation of the wood can be measured using the ESPI technique, the deformation values significantly vary for every part of the specimens, and the ring directions of earlywood and latewood, which compose the annual rings, have an effect on the two-dimensional deformation of wood.
