Conformity assessment for machine graded timber by using output control

Bengtsson, Charlotte; Serrano, Erik LU ; Fonselius, Mikael and Riipola, Kirsti (2008)
Abstract
<p>In the Nordic countries machine strength grading of structural timber is becoming increasingly important. A new standard, EN 14081, which allows CE-marking of strength graded structural timber was recently accepted. This standard allows both machine</p><p>control and output control as methods for controlling the graded timber. Machine control is most commonly used in Europe. The project reported here deals with output control. This method is commonly used in for example USA.</p><p>Theoretical studies carried out within this project show that applying output control gives higher yield, especially in high strength classes. A document describing the implementation of the output control procedure is written and... (More)
