Abstract


The feasibility of the dynamic testing was explored for the elastic modulus and shear modulus of full-scale laminated veneer lumber in batches at the production site. In order to do so, dynamic testing and analysis, involving a hammer blow and detection of frequencies, were carried out on the laminated veneer lumber free-plate placed in two ways: suspended and placed on a sponge. The results showed that the mode shape and modal frequency value of the suspended laminated veneer lumber free-plate obtained from the modal test were consistent with those of the specimens placed on the sponge. The elastic modulus and shear modulus values of the laminated veneer lumber free-plate obtained in sponge mode based on the transient excitation method were 3.99% and 3.08% higher than the elastic modulus and shear modulus values of the laminated veneer lumber obtained in suspension mode obtained based on the modal test method. The feasibility and reliability of the elastic modulus and shear modulus values obtained by the laminated veneer lumber free-plate in sponge mode were verified.
