Room-temperature moduli at saturation (23-percent moisture content) are listed in table 3. The same stiffnesses
are used for graded wood as for clear wood. For southern yellow pine, the default Young’s moduli are average
tensile values obtained from empirical fits to the clear wood data given in table 1 and shown in appendix B. These
fits were published by FPL.(13)

For Douglas fir, the default Young’s moduli and Poisson’s ratios are also obtained
from empirical fits, made by the contractor, to the clear wood data given in table 2. The shear moduli were not
measured. For both wood species, the parallel shear modulus is estimated from predicted elastic parameter
tables for softwoods found in Bodig and Jayne.(16)

The perpendicular shear modulus, G23, is calculated from the
isotopic relationship between G23, E22, and v23. For both wood species, the value of the perpendicular Poisson’s
ratio used to estimate G23 is that measured for Douglas fir (because no values are listed in table 1 for pine).
