Pergamon Series of Monographs on Furniture and Timber, Volume 8: Timber: Its Mechanical Properties and Factors Affecting its Structural Use focuses on the mechanical and technical properties of timber, including how a tree grows and develops. This book discusses the growth of the tree, structure of wood, fundamental properties, factors affecting strength, structural grading, and seasoning. The strength properties, assessing strength properties, and testing for strength are also covered. The strength of wood varies almost with every species and factors affecting this in relation to working stresses are fully indicated in this text. This publication is intended as an introductory textbook on the mechanical and technical properties of wood, and as such, will be useful to students, architects, builders, and others requiring knowledge on the subject.
