Abstract [en]

Transversal shear of softwoods was studied with the single cube apparatus (SCA). Full field strain data and FEA were used to validate the device. Once a close to pure shear strain region was confirmed, the relationship between shear strain and radial density gradient was obtained; finally an improved FE model was created.
