Department of Wood Science is equipped with the following equipment:

  • testing machine eg. FPZ100, ZWICK ZO50TH,
  • impact testing machine,
  • acoustic emission analyzer - EA3,
  • ultrasonic flaw detector (measurement of sound propagation velocity, measurement of the dynamic elastic modulus),
  • laboratory balances,
  • laboratory drier,
  • electrical moisture meter to measure the wood moisture,
  • computer set for the analysis of macro structural parameters of wood, BIOTRONIK (width of annuals ring, percentage of latewood),
  • computer image analyzer (morphometric analysis - measuring dimensions of the anatomy elements),
  • optical (transmitted light) and stereoscopic microscopes (reflected light) - identification of type of wood, analysis of the degree of destruction of wood.
