Bing: Beam Identification by Non destructive Grading

Loïc Brancheriau, Sébastien Paradis & Henri Baillères
Bing is a non-destructive testing technology for evaluating mechanical quality of wood and other materials by vibratory analysis, developed by CIRAD. Bing provides for any rigid material its elastic characteristics (longitudinal modulus of elasticity MOE and transverse shear modulus) and non-elastic (internal friction associated with each resonance frequency) from a sample with regular geometry (7 sections available) subjected to longitudinal or transverse vibrations. We distribute it in various implementations: mainly as the eponymous Bing software,...

Wisis: Wood In Situ InSpection

Sébastien Paradis & Loïc Brancheriau
WISIS (Wood In Situ InSpection) is a non-destructive inspection system for evaluating the mechanical condition of solid wooden elements in use in a structure. Wood is widely used in construction. During the lifetime of a structure, deterioration of a wooden component may result from the application of excessive loads, or the presence of fungi or insects. It is important to periodically assess the status of the wood structure, using non-destructive methods, to detect and determine...

Tropix software presents hundreds of tropical wood species, and provides a set of technological characteristics for each of them. The data come from CIRAD’s wood database which contains all the results of characterization tests conducted by our laboratories and machining centre over decades. Tropix software was first released in 1997. Current version is 7, released in 2011 but the data are regularly updated (last update is version 7.5.1 from May 2015).

ArchiWood: collection of digitized documents constituting a unique database on the botanical characteristics of numerous species from Madagascar.

Loïc Brancheriau, Amira Azizan, Emma Guillon, Patrick Langbour, Yves Caraglio, Sébastien Paradis, Pierre Bonnet, Christine Heinz, Yannick Brohard & Nabila Boutahar
La numérisation d’une partie de la xylothèque, une des plus importantes collections de bois tropicaux reconnue au niveau internationale, permet à des chercheurs, à des experts du domaine, à des formateurs et à des archéologues de pouvoir disposer d’une nouvelle source d’information homogénéisée. Ce corpus constitue une base de données unique sur les caractéristiques botaniques de nombreuses espèces de Madagascar et peut alimenter les recherches tant dans les domaines écologiques que systématiques par la possibilité...
