This paper presents a review of the fracture literature of solid wood. The review is not exhaustive and is focused on the structure and properties of wood at different length scales. Fracture of wood has been examined in all pure modes as well as mixed-Mode I and II and all directions—radial, tangential, and longitudinal. The literature has been studied at a variety of levels from molecular through cellular and growth ring to macroscopic. The major conclusions are that fracture toughness… CONTINUE READING
