Title
(EN) SYSTEM FOR AND METHOD OF PERFORMING EVALUATION TECHNIQUES ON A LOG OR ROUND TIMBER
(FR) SYSTEME ET PROCEDE DE REALISATION DE TECHNIQUES D'EVALUATION SUR DE BILLES OU BOIS D'OEUVRE
Abstract
(EN)
A system for and method of evaluating a log. The system (100) includes an analysis module (110) having at least one input terminal (120) connectable to the at least one input device (105). The at least one input terminal (120) is operable to receive at least one signal representing at least one measured property of the log and at least one determined parameter of the log determined in response to an energy being applied to the log. The analysis module (110) further includes a processor (130) coupled to the at least one input terminal (120). The processor (130) determines a predictive modulus of elasticity of the log based at least in part on the at least one measured property and the at least one sensed parameter. The analysis module (110) also includes an output terminal (125) coupled to the processor (130) and connectable to an output device (115). The output terminal (125) transmits a third signal representing the predictive modulus of elasticity.

L'invention porte sur un système et sur un procédé d'évaluation d'une bille. Le système comprend un module d'analyse comportant au moins un terminal d'entrée pouvant se raccorder à au moins un dispositif d'entrée. Le terminal d'entrée est apte à recevoir au moins un signal représentant au moins une propriété mesurée de la bille et au moins un paramètre déterminé de la bille en réaction à une énergie appliquée sur la bille. Le module d'analyse comprend également un processeur couplé à au moins un terminal d'entrée. Le processeur détermine un module d'élasticité prédictif de la bille en fonction, en partie, de la propriété mesurée et du paramètre détecté. Le module d'analyse comprend également un terminal de sortie couplé au processeur et pouvant se raccorder à un dispositif de sortie. Le terminal de sortie émet un troisième signal représentant le module d'élasticité prédictif.
