    Description

    Transverse vibration as a nondestructive testing and evaluation technique was first examined in the early 1960s. Initial research and development efforts focused on clear wood, lumber, and laminated products. Out of those efforts, tools were developed that are used today to assess lumber properties. Recently, use of this technique has been investigated for evaluating a range of wood materials--from logs to wood-based structural systems. This paper presents the technique and its use to evaluate a variety of wood-based materials and systems.
