Abstract

Determining the quality of wood is not a common research activity, due to ignorance of its effect on the overall quality of constructions. Wood quality can be considered as a combination of attributes that give it properties appropriate for specific uses. The wood used In this research experiment was donated by a local supplier in the City of Guanajuato. Mechanical properties, water content, and those characteristics necessary for visual grading and classification were judged according to Mexican standards. The analyzed sample easily complied with the requirements for class A, implying that it was of sufficient quality for use in the construction of houses, decorative details, and ramps.
