Acquiring the timber on a warehouse, inspect a finished package of timber. Sometimes the manufacturer affixes to the prepared for sale the tag, which indicates the exact amount, characteristics and the price of the package. However, such pre-preparation, you can meet not always, most often, the calculations required to own, or to rely on the honesty of the seller.
Determine the type of material the volume of which you want to calculate. In one cubic meter can contain a different number of slabs, edged or unedged boards or round the forest. Calculation of cubic capacity is determined by the degree of processing of wood, its type and grade.
If you need to determine the volume of the slab, sort it by length into two groups: up to two meters and more. Lay the slabs in a stack, to thin and thick ends alternated, and the raw surface was layers up and down. Ensure the same height of the pile throughout its length, angles, and dense stacking. Multiply the average height package width and length; you will receive a so-called share the cubic.
Since the prices of holiday woods must be placed not in the share cubic capacity, and in a dense mass, use to transfer the collected values of a special coefficient. For debarked slabs of length up to two meters it is 0.48; for debarked – 0,56.
Use to determine the volume of material from coniferous and deciduous breeds the so-called subatomic, which is an approved standard, made in the form of tables with volumes of one piece of lumber.
The volume of round timber determine not with the use of conversion factors in a tight measure, and by measuring each log. For example, the beam has a diameter of 0.18 m and length 6 m. the Volume of the log will be in this case is about 0,194 cubic meters, multiply This value by the number of logs in the pile to obtain the required volume of the entire party forest.
