Structural round timber - Test methods

This standard applies for structural round wood timber other than specified in EN 12509.
This test standard specifies test methods for determining the following properties of structural round timber; the bending strength, modulus of elasticity in bending; the compressive strength parallel to the grain and modulus of elasticity in compression parallel to the grain.
In addition, the determination of dimensions, moisture content and density is specified. The methods apply to debarked round timber.
This standard is not intended for quality-control test purposes.

Rundholz für bauliche Zwecke - Prüfverfahren

Diese Norm gilt für den Einsatz von Rundholz für andere als die in EN 12509 festgelegten baulichen Zwecke.
Diese Prüfnorm legt Prüfverfahren zur Bestimmung folgender Eigenschaften von Rundholz für bauliche Zwecke fest: Biegefestigkeit, Biege-Elastizitätsmodul, Druckfestigkeit in Faserrichtung und Elastizitätsmodul bei Druckbeanspruchung in Faserrichtung.
Zusätzlich werden Verfahren zur Bestimmung der Maße, des Feuchtegehalts und der Dichte festgelegt. Die Verfahren gelten für entrindetes Rundholz.
Diese Norm ist nicht für die Anwendung in der Qualitätskontrolle vorgesehen.

Bois de structure rond - Méthodes d'essai

La présente norme s'applique aux usages structurels du bois rond non spécifiés dans l'EN 12509.
La présente norme d'essai spécifie les méthodes d'essai permettant de déterminer les propriétés suivantes du bois de structure rond : résistance à la flexion, module d'élasticité en flexion, résistance à la compression parallèlement au fil et module d'élasticité en compression parallèlement au fil.
De plus, les dimensions, la teneur en humidité et la masse volumique sont spécifiées. Les méthodes s'appliquent au bois rond écorcé.
La présente norme n'a pas pour objet de servir aux essais de contrôle qualité.
