  1. Six samples were utilized for each test. EL, ER, ET are the elastic modulus in longitudinal, radial, and tangential directions, respectively; GLR, GLT, GRT are the shear modulus under different directions; \(\nu\) is the Poisson’s ratio under different directions; M represents the moisture content; \(\rho\) is the density of wood; ft,0 and fc,0 are the tension and compression strength parallel to grain, respectively; fc,90 stands for the compression strength perpendicular to grain.
