A Guideline for In-Situ Determination of Density in Timber Structures Using X-ray
Rapport, 2012

This report provides a guideline and instructions for the in-situ assessment of density properties using X-ray equipment. The first part describes the set-up on site and the second part, the X-ray equipment used is shortly described as well as the recommended procedure for the evaluation of the X-ray images. Finally, the application of this method is described. This method can be preferably used when the density of the timber used in a structure is unknown, especially to assess the condition of the structure and to preserve the cultural heritage.
