      The properties of softwood? They come from coniferous (conifer) trees and have cone or needle shaped leaves. They belong to the botanical group Gymnopermae plants that bear exposed seeds.

The results show that typical prediction methods for structural properties of CLT can also be used to predict those of Ply-lam, since the measured values were higher than the predicted values.

The hardwood/softwood distinction is a general designation and does not literally refer to the hardness of the wood, since some conifers have harder wood than certain hardwoods. Galactoglucomannan is the major hemicellulose in softwood, constituting about 16%.Exceptions are larch wood and incense cedar where a xylan predominates. First isolated 59 in , galactoglucomannans seem to be composed of two fractions, one having a galactosyl:mannosyl ratio of 1: 4 and another having a ratio of 1: 1: 3.

8 — A guide to American softwood species Western pines Pinus spp. General description Often referred to as the White pines, this is a commercially important group, known for its resinous odour and light colour. Main uses Ponderosa pine (Pinus ponderosa) 1, Sugar pine (Pinus lambertiana) 2 and Idaho White pine (Pinus monticola) 3 are valuedFile Size: 1MB.

important softwood species are native to the West. Among others, these include: Douglas fir (Oregon Pine) and Western Larch, Western Hemlock which is often marketed along with several of the true firs (Abiesspecies) as Hem-Fir, Ponderosa and Lodgepole pines, Sugar pine, Idaho (or Western) White pine, four species of cedar (Incense, Western Red.

includes not only the anatomical, physical, and mechanical properties of wood as a material, but also the standards and practices related to the manufacture of structural wood products, such as sawn lumber and glulam. In the broadest terms, trees and their respective lumber are classified into two general classes, hardwoods and softwoods.

The primary distinguishing feature between softwoods and hardwoods is that softwood species lack pores. So upon initial examination of an unknown wood sample, the most immediate detail to note is whether or not the endgrain section has numerous circular openings—commonly referred to as vessels or pores.

With hardwoods, the most conspicuous. The grading rules are published in the Western Lumber Grading Rules book. Dimension Lumber grades are divided into the following classifications: Structural Light Framing (2x2 through 4x4, used where high-strength design values are required in light framing sizes, such as in engineered wood trusses.

The following table is Structural Lumber Wood Engineering Properties. Modulus of Elasticity of Wood, Wood Engineering Design Data. Modulus of elasticity also referred to as Tensile Modulus or Young's Modulus.

Elastic ratios for various wood species at approximately 12% moisture content - see bottom of webpage.

Structural timber is graded for its load-bearing and load-carrying capacity in framing systems and in heavy construction, light commercial and residential applications. The dominant American structural framing species are Douglas Fir and Southern Yellow Pine. Typical structural construction applications include: Homes Stores Office Buildings Schools Churches Theatres Structural timber products.

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.

process. Generally, there is a 1/4- to 3/4-inch difference between the nominal and dressed sizes of “dry” sawn lumber (refer to NDS-S Table 1B for specific dimensions). For example, a 2x4 is actually inches by inches, a 2x10 is Residential Structural Design Guide.

It’s one of the three primary commercial species of White Pine, with the other two—Sugar Pine and Western White Pine—being found on the west coast.

The long, straight trunks of Eastern White Pine were once prized for use as ship masts. 28 Stress Grading Method of classifying lumber to identify its structural qualities Visual or Machine methods Agencies that write grading rules n WWPA – Western Wood Products Assn.

Timber grades are classified into two basic groups according to the intended use: Beams & Stringers, and Posts & Timbers. Beams & Stringer s - nominal 5. The mechanical properties of wood considered in this book are: (1) stiffness and elasticity, (2) tensile strength, (3) compressive or crushing strength, (4) shearing strength, (5) transverse or bending strength, (6) toughness, (7) hardness, (8) cleavability, (9) resilience.

In connection with these, associated properties of importance are. Design prop- erties will vary by species.

Softwoods contain more glucomannans than hardwoods, while hardwoods contain more xylans. Hardwoods are generally far more resistant to decay than softwoods when used for exterior work. However, solid hardwood joinery is expensive compared to softwood and most hardwood doors, for instance.Softwood is the source of about 80% of the world's production of timber, with traditional centres of production being the Baltic region (including Scandinavia and Russia), North America and China.

Softwood is typically used in construction as structural carcassing timber, as well as finishing timber.
