I have a project I'm looking at proposing. A local natural history foundation, which provides outdoor classroom instruction for schoolchildren called me last week. Seems they have a wood observation platform which is supposed to handle about twenty people at a time, that sustained some damage a couple of years ago when a tree fell on it. The damage looks to be slight, but it does raise some questions in my mind as to the strength of the wood members. I have in mind to obtain some properties of the wood members, either my non-destructive (preferably) tests, or even destructive means. Does anyone have any experience with this? What sorts of tests are available for this purpose? Thanks for any light shed.
