Wood handbook--Wood as an engineering material
(Forest Products Laboratory, Department of Agriculture Forest Service, 2006)
Kraft pulp from juvenile and mature woods of corymbia citriodora
Kraft pulp produced from juvenile and mature wood from thirty-two-year-old Corymbia citriodora trees was evaluated. The stem was subdivided into regions of juvenile and mature wood, and then it was transformed into chips. ...
Influence of wood treatments on mechanical properties of wood-cement composites and of Populus Euroamericana wood fibers
Woodecement composites are interesting materials for structural and isolation purposes. Dimensional stability, economic factors and resistance to environmental degradation are features that can be exploited for housing ...
Influence of moisture content in some mechanical properties of two brazilian tropical wood species
This study aimed, with the aid of analysis of variance (ANOVA), to investigate and quantify the influence of moisture ranging between 12% and over 30% (fiber saturation) on the mechanical properties: strength and modulus ...
Influência do cancro basal em Eucalyptus grandis nas propriedades da madeira e polpação kraft
The objective of this research is to assess the influences of basal canker on wood properties for the kraft pulp production. The material consisted of seeded E. grandis trees classified into 4 levels of basal canker severity ...
Remarks on orthotropic elastic models applied to wood
Wood is generally considered an anisotropic material. In terms of engineering elastic models, wood is usually treated as an orthotropic material. This paper presents an analysis of two principal anisotropic elastic models ...
Morphology of wood species affecting wood-thermoplastic interaction: microstructure and mechanical adhesion
(Universidad del Bío-Bío, 2009)
Anatomical properties of Eucalyptus grandis wood and transition age between the juvenile and mature woods
The present study is aimed at evaluating the anatomical characteristics of Eucalyptus grandis wood and the transition age between the juvenile and mature woods. Four trees of 23-year-old E. grandis were used. The juvenile, ...
