  1. aThe value was adjusted by multiplying a scale factor \({E}_{0}/{E}_{\mathrm{Lit}}\) to the parallel-to-grain shear modulus \({G}_{\mathrm{Lit}}\) from literature [11, 12], where \({E}_{\mathrm{Lit}}\) and \({G}_{\mathrm{Lit}}\) are the modulus of elasticity from the literatures
  2. bThe estimated value obtained from regression analysis
  3. cProvisional values given for the regression analysis
