Potential for estimating the age of instruments by characterisation of wood properties via acoustics.

Conference Proceeding
Ridley-Ellis, D., & Popescu, C. (2014)
Potential for estimating the age of instruments by characterisation of wood properties via acoustics
The performance of musical instruments is sensitive to several wood properties that are affected by aging. These wood properties also change with temperature and humidity in w...

Strength class of minor conifer species, as estimated from log acoustic measurements, small-clear data and knowledge of wood property variation

Conference Proceeding
Gil-Moreno, D., Ridley-Ellis, D., & McLean, J. P. (2014)
Strength class of minor conifer species, as estimated from log acoustic measurements, small-clear data and knowledge of wood property variation. In K. Schober (Ed.), COST Action FP1004 "Experimental Research with Timber", (214-218
It is well known that wood properties vary from species to species. Additionally, trees grow wood in response to their requirement to grow in a certain environment. Therefore,...
