More than 6000 specimens of spruce and pine grown in
several European countries were tested by destructive and
non-destructive means in laboratory. Five strength
grading machines were also used to test the material.
This report includes the description of sampling as well
as tension and bending properties of material with
comparisons to earlier results.
Main purpose of this report is to document experimental
results. Analysis in-cludes basic statistical
characteristics such as means, coefficients of variation
and correlations between grade determining properties and
indicating properties. Also the possibility of having
same settings in different countries has been focused.
