India-tree variations of strength properties in plantation grown teak (Tectona grandis L.f.) and techniques for their systematic sampling
This investigation involved an assessment of the intra-tree variation of some strength properties in teak (Tectona grandis L. f) grown in Nigeria: nominal specific gravity, modulus of rupture (MOR) , modulus of elasticity (MOE), total work done (TWO) and maximum compressive strength parallel-to-grain (MCS).
Nine trees were examined from three canopy classes: two dominants, five co-dominants and two sub-dominants. Within each tree, systematic sampling was carried out (a modi...Expand abstract
