Technically equivalent to ISO 3131-1975, it covers density at the moisture content at the time of test (nominal density), oven dry density and conventional density (basic density). A method is given for calculating the nominal density adjusted to 12 percent moisture content.
This International Standard specifies a method for determining the density (ratio of mass to volume) of wood for physical and mechanical tests both at the moisture content at the time of test and in the absolutely dry condition, as well as the conventional density (ratio of mass in the absolutely dry condition to volume of the test piece with moisture content greater than or equal to the fibre saturation point).
