Non-destructive ultrasonic testing was applied to evaluate the performance of wood deck material with hole as artificial defect. Ultrasonic velocities and modulus of elasticity were measured according to different diameters and numbers of holes, and comparative analysis to each data were done. From the results, ultrasonic velocities and modulus of elasticity decreased with an increase in the hole size and showed a negative linear correlation with the size of hole, respectively. As the hole size increased, ultrasonic velocities decreased, but their difference was small in the case of the hole size under 15 mm. Also, ultrasonic velocities and modulus of elasticity decreased with increasing the number of holes and showed a strong negative linear correlation to the number of holes. As the number of holes increased, ultrasonic velocities decreased to 3.5%, but modulus of elasticity decreased to 27%. Therefore, the number of holes showed greater influence to modulus of elasticity than ultrasonic velocity. Overall, the size and number of holes influenced to ultrasonic velocity and modulus of elasticity, and their influence will be greater as the size and number of holes increases. These results suggested that several ultrasonic parameters rather than a single ultrasonic velocity should be applied to detect small defects in wood decking materials.
