Portuguese Standard,  Drawbacks of the standardized tests for the identification of the shear properties of wood [3,4] : (i) Give only the shear properties parallel to the fibres (shear moduli : G LR, G LT and shear strengths : S LR e S LT ). (ii) The variable span method [5,6] proposed for the determination of E L and G LR (or G LT ), is not a fundamental test. (iii) The failure of the specimen of the shear block test [7,8] proposed for the identification of S LR and S LT, occurs under stress concentrations. [3] Yoshihara et all..

(i) simultaneous identification of the shear modulus and the shear strength, in a particular symmetry plane. Justifications for the choice of the Iosipescu test: (ii) possible application of this test method for all the symmetry planes of wood thanks to the small size of the specimen.  Among different shear tests for orthotropic materials : Iosipescu test (standard test for synthetic composite materials [9] ).

9 For an orthotropic material the distributions of  6 and  6 are not homogeneous [10,11]. The correction factors C e S are calculated through finite element analyses. G 12 = CSG 12 a [10] Pierron F. e A. Vautrin. Composite Science and Technology, 5:61-72, [11] Pierron F.

10 [10] Pierron F. e A. Vautrin. Composite Science and Technology, 5:61-72, [11] Pierron F. Journal of Composite Materials, 32(22): , The distribution of  6 through the thickness of the specimen can be heterogeneous due to geometrical imperfections of its loading surfaces [10,11]. This effect is eliminated by considering  6 as the average of the shear strains measured over both lateral faces of the specimen [10,11].

11  Aspects about the identification of S 12 : [12] Pierron F. e A. Vautrin. Composite Science and Technology, 57(12): , [13] Pierron F. e A. Vautrin. Journal of Composite Materials, 31(9): , [14] Odegard G. e M. Kumosa. Journal of Composite Materials, 33(21): , The failure of the specimens occurs under a homogeneous stress state although both  6 and  2 components exist [12-14]. S 12 should be determined through a failure criterion. S 12 = P / A represents an overestimated value. a ult  2 component should be calculated from finite element analysis, introducing in the model an suitable shear constitutive law.

12 Numerical simulation of the variable span method  Aim: Investigating the applicability of the variable span method [5,6] for validating the Iosipescu test. 3D models of the three-point-bending test developed in ABAQUS ®.  Finite element models: Wood was modelled as: – continuous; – homogeneous; – orthotropic; – linear elastic.

58 General conclusions and future work  The G LR, G LT and G RT shear moduli identified by the Iosipescu test are greater than the ones obtained by the off-axis and Arcan tests by 26%, 17% e 20%, respectively, leading to different properties at a 95% confidence level.  Although it is not possible to directly identify the shear strengths S LR, S LT and S RT using the Iosipescu test, it was proved that this test gives a good estimation of these properties, at least for the LR and LT planes.

59  Perpectives : ─ The use of identification technics, based on optical measurements and heterogenous fields, in order to identify several mechanical properties from only one test method. ─ The use of a micro/macro approach that allows the estimation of the macroscopic behaviour of wood through the characterization of its micro-structure.
