Longitudinal shrinkage variations within trees of sugi (Cryptomeria japonica) cultivars

The longitudinal shrinkage variations within trees and the relationship with density, microfibril angle, and modulus of elasticity were examined for five sugi cultivars selected for different within-tree distributions of density, microfibril angle, and modulus of elasticity. The cultivars showed significant differences in longitudinal shrinkage and in its… CONTINUE READING
