Timber Testing Plant at University of
Oregon to Make Investigation.
WASHINGTON, August 28. The For
est Service laboratory at Eugene, Ore
gon, is preparing to test the strength
of timbers which have been removed
from the bridges of a western railroad,
and discarded after several years of use.
It is a practice with some railroad
companies to remove bridge stringers
that have been in service a certain
length of time, upon the assumption
that they have deteriorated in strength
to such a degree as to be unsafe.
The substitution of knowledge for
haphazard guesses is one of the objects
held steadily in view by the Forest
Service in its timber tests. It ascer
tains the actual strength of different !
woods, not the supposed strength.
ine Deams win De oroicen under loads
applied by powerful machines, and the
weights which they might have carried
with safety will be ascertain. The
knowledge thus made available will be
of value to many users of heavy tim
bers. ., - , -
