Indian StandardMETHODS OF SAMPLING OF

TIMBER SCANTLINGS FROM DEPOTS ANDTHEIR CONVERSION FOR TESTING

o. FOR E W 0 R D

0.1 This Indian Standard was adopted by the Indian StaudardsInstitution OJl 30 Jdnudry 1978, after the draft finalized by the TimberSectional Committee had been approved by the Civil J4:nginccring DivisionCouncil.

0.2 Evaluation of basic properties of timber is cUI important base forestablishing design functions ofstructural timber. For this purpose smallclear specimens and specimens in structural sizes arc tested according tostandard procedures laid down in IS: 1708-196c)* and IS: 2408-1963t.I n order to obtain a good average figure which is trucly representative ofthe species, it i" necessary to take "ample's from different trees and furtherfrom different logs. IS: 2455-1963: contained information pertaining tosampling from logs besides presentation of data. However, baled on thework developed at ISO level, it has been felt nerr ssar y to cover thesubject under separ.u c standards dealing with:

a) Sampling of model tr(~c~ and log'i for I imber tc-ting and tllltJrconversion, ~

b) Sampling of timber scantlings fr,H1I depots .md their conv4i'ioJlfor testing, and

e) Presentation of delta of physical and merh.mical properties oftimber.

Accordingly IS : 2455-1974§ now COVt rs only sampling of model treesand logs in forest areas and their convervion for dr-termiuation of physicaland mer hanical properties of wood. Thr- methods of prl sr-ntanon of data ofphysical and mechanical properties of timber are b('in~ separately coveredin IS : 8745-197811. This standard COVt:r, methods nf sampling of timberscantlings frOlll depots and their conversion fin" testing.

0.3 In the formulation of this standard due weightagc has been given tointernational co-ordination among the standards and practices prevalentin different countries in addition to relating it to the practices in the fieldin this country.

0.4 For the purpose of deciding whether a p.irticular requirement of thisstandard is complied with, the final value, oh-crvcd or calculated, express­ing the result of a test or analysis, shall be rounded ofF in accordance withIS: 2-1960*. The number of significant places retained in the roundedoff value should be the same as that of the specified value in this standard,

I. SCOPE

1.1 This standard lays down the methods of sampling of ti~her in· theform of scantlings from depots, and tluir conversion into test specimensfor determination of physical and mcchuic.il properties.

2. TERMINOLOGY

~.l For the purpose of this standard definitions g-iv(;n 111 IS: 707-1976tand IS : 2455-1974·: shall apply.

3. SELECTION OF SCANTLINGS

3.1 Before selection, all information r(~g<-lrding the species, source ofprocuremen t and date of procurernen t shall be non >(1. Jt shall also beascertained that the lot which may constitute logs, or converted material,may contain only one species, though j 11 diffcrcn t lengths, from differentplaces and from different trees. Material shall ht: taken out from a lotwhich contains minimum of 50 and maximum of :-)00 log'S or convertedmaterial. Number of logs or converted material in a lot shall be recorded.

3.2 Only one scantling of about 13 X 13 ern in cross-section and 1·5 In inlength shall be taken out from the individual logs or the: converted timberfor the purpose of tests. Care being taken to sec that the scantling isrepresentative of the material in question.

3.3 Ten percent of the total scantlings subject to a minimum of 20 shall beselected randomly from the lot according to IS : 490:1-1968§.

3.4 The scantlings shall be sound, straight grained and free from decay,centre-heart, large knots, twisted grain and Such other defects which affectthe strength properties.

3.5 All scantlings chosen from a lot shall be taken as one consignment.

3.6 All the scantlings in a consign mr-nt sh.rll be properly marked as below:a) Name and location of depot by suitable abbreviation,

b) Abbreviation of species, andc) Consignment and scantling number.

3.7 All the scantlings shall be packed in such a m urncr that they may nutbe affected by moisture or' mechanical hazards during transportation totesting place.

4. STORAGE OF SCANTLINGS BY THE TESTING AUTHORITY

4.1 Material shall be tested as early as possible in conditjon as received.However, if the material is required to be stored for some period, due careshall be taken so that the material Inay not deteriorate during storage.Necessary prophylatic treatment shall be provided as given inIS : 401-1967·

5. MARKING AND CONVER~ION OF SCANTLINGS INTOTEST SPECIMENS

5.3 All thc sticks shall be placed in a conditioning chamber maintainedat 27 ± 2°C and 65 ± 5 percent RH for about a week so a, to minimizethe moisture variation within the material.

5.4 After conditioning all the sticks shall be planed on four sides to5 X 5 em cross-section before cutting into proper test specimens.

5 ..5 Specimens for the tests shall be selected from the sticks in accordancewith the schedule given in Appendix A. The length of the test specimensfor various test shall be in accordance with IS: 1708-1969*. In instanceswhere sticks do not provide sufficient material, the test specimens may betaken from the uninjured portion of the static and impact bending tests.However, proper care shall be exercised in the selection of specimensgiving due regard to the direction of the growth rings and visible defects.

5.6 All the specimens shall be clear, straight grained, free from decay andother defects. Where inevitable, discretion shall he used to allow defectssuch that their presence may not influence the results.

5.7 All the test specimens shall also be marked with the indicative numberof the concerned test for easy selection at the time of testing.
