Outline Activities
A wooden construction can sustain static, dynamic, earthquake, and wind loads over its entire life. However, the stress conditions of its structural components must be determined nondestructively in order to prevent its collapse. An ultrasonic technique has been researched in order to apply it to the quality control of sawing timber and to the maintenance of posts and beams in a wooden construction. The ultrasonic velocity is an important parameter in the nondestructive testing of wood.

Current and Past Project
  • Recently, there has been an increasing preference for foods and agricultural products with quality and safety assurance guarantees. As a result, interest in developing techniques that evaluate the quality and safety of foods and agricultural products is steadily intensifying. In this project, we investigate the feasibility of using a novel non-contact ultrasonic technique to measure fruit firmness.
  • In this project, we attempt to visualize the deformation behaviors of lumber during drying using the digital image correlation (DIC) method.

The checks cause drop of the ornamental values of lumber. It is difficult to know the drying stress in wood nondestructively. Authors have reported that the acoustoelastic technique is the best way to know the internal stress in wood. The final objective is to establish the non-contact and non-destructive technique of drying stress in lumber by air-coupled ultrasonic. As the first step, the propagation characteristics of small clear wood specimens were investigated in this study..
