Modulus of elasticity and compression parallel to grain have been determined on small clear and full sized samples of Douglas Fir and Redwood after three year wet exposures at room temperature, 120°F and 150°F. Determinations have been made at room temperature and at the temperature at which the samples were exposed. The results of the tests have been used to generate reduction factors to be applied to the properties tested.
