Abstract

Bending properties is part of mechanical properties that determines the strength properties of wood. It is an important property that must be identified before wood was processed into furniture. In this study, Mahang Gajah (Macaranga gigantea) is used, as it is one of fast growing species. It had been divided into middle and bottom portions. Then, two types of bending test were applied, which is destructive testing and non-destructive testing. From this study, it shows that there is no significant different for both types of bending test (destructive and non-destructive) when using samples from different portions. The results also show that non-destructive testing gave inaccurate results if compared to destructive testing. It can be concluded that middle and bottom portions had slightly similar bending properties due to their similarity in terms of density. It is also proven that non-destructive testing is not suitable to measure bending properties of wood.
