Collapse in Wood as Shown by the Microscope
Abstract:Superficially wood seems such a simple material. But is it? What is the difference between collapse and shrinkage? How does water play a part in each phenomenon? Just what is collapse in wood? The author explains this and by means of photomicrographs gives his reader a really inside picture of the "pull and haul" that goes on in wood when undergoing collapse.
