A comparison of static bending, compression and tension parallel to grain and toughness properties of compression wood and normal wood of a Giant Sequoia



A comparison of static bending, compression and tension parallel to grain and toughness properties of compression wood and normal wood of a Giant Sequoia



Wood Science and Technology 7(4): 241-250



Tests on samples removed from bolts cut at 8 ft and 20 ft above stump level from a leaning suppressed tree and tested by ASTM methods indicated that many of the strength properties of compression wood in both the green and dry state were at least equal, if not considerably superior, to those of the matched samples of normal wood.
