Shrinkage/wood structure relations. 1. Radial variation of longitudinal and tangential shrinkage on rotary-cut Douglas fir veneers



Shrinkage/wood structure relations. 1. Radial variation of longitudinal and tangential shrinkage on rotary-cut Douglas fir veneers



Annales des Sciences Forestieres 47(4): 331-344



Douglas fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii) peeled veneer samples (4 or 6 mm thick, 2x2 cm) from a 20-year-old plantation in the Limousin region, France were used in the study. A strong positive correlation (R = 0.9) was observed between tangential shrinkage (TS) and wood density (WD), and a less strong negative relation between longitudinal shrinkage (LS) and WD.
