Effect of structural defects in wood on its swelling and shrinkage behaviour. Part 1: Effect of compression wood of Norway spruce



Effect of structural defects in wood on its swelling and shrinkage behaviour. Part 1: Effect of compression wood of Norway spruce



Holzforschung und Holzverwertung 45(2): 36-37



Normal and compression wood of Norway spruce was tested in shrinkage and in free and restrained swelling. In free swelling, compression wood exhibited greater longitudinal swelling, whereas swelling and shrinkage in the radial and tangential directions were similar to that in normal wood.
