Abstract
The timber structure of a two-story building from the XVIII century, located in Aranjuez, Spain, was evaluated using nondestructive techniques. These consisted of stress wave measurements and probing tests based on needle penetration depth, to estimate the modulus of elasticity, modulus of rupture and density. A detailed inspection of the timber pieces was carried out to detect biological damage, the dimensions of members and the weight of the construction systems themselves. Nine predictive models for MOE and MOR were applied to the NDT measurements obtained in this building. These models had been proposed by several authors for the same wood species in previous experimental works, but under different conditions in terms of piece sizes, moisture content and the positioning of sensors, etc. Modification factors were applied to measurements in order to give consistent results. The predicted values obtained are similar for the different models used. The range of variation for MOE is ±7% and for MOR ±13%.
