Abstract

The present investigation was carried out to determine the mechanical properties of various types of timber. This study provides information for selection criteria of timber to make a different component of agriculture implement and tools. The Flexural Strength of Yellow Teak, Red cedar, North Indian rose timber, Lebbeck, Java plum, Margosa, Eucalyptus, Teak, Mango and Sal was found as 79.00, 54.3, 104.2, 78.00, 84.00, 73.00, 65.9, 94.00, 88.6 and 98.00 MPa respectively. The test of selected timber species shows that the strength of a timber depends on its species and hence different timber have different strength characteristics. The results obtained in this study has provided quantitative information on the Mechanical properties of various types of timber, which can be used in determining the application of these timber for either heavy work load carriage and for agricultural implements and tools.
