Abstract [en]

Pressure tests on wood have been conducted to determine its properties. The resultswere not as expected, and it is therefore difficult to obtain the parameters of thewood. This project examines how a specific defect in the wood sample affects theresult.The pressure test is simulated with numerical modeling. In the numerical model thecube’s top side is non-parallel with the bottom side, it is in other words somewhattilted.The results from the model agreed with the findings from some pressure tests. Withthose we can easily calculate the wood's properties. For other pressure tests, otherfactors might need to be examined before we can draw any conclusions.

Abstract [sv]

Tryckprover på trä har utförts för att ta reda dess egenskaper. Resultaten blev intevad som förväntades, och det blir därför svårt att få fram träets egenskaper. Dettaprojekt undersöker hur en viss defekt i träprovet påverkar resultatet.Tryckprovet simuleras med numerisk modellering. I modellen är kubens toppsida inteparallell med bottensidan, den är med andra ord något sned.Resultatet från modellen stämde med resultat från vissa tryckprover. Då kan man fåfram träets egenskaper. För andra tryckprover kan andra faktorer behöva undersökasinnan man kan dra några slutsatser.
