Properties of Individual Southern Pine Fibers. Ination and Variability of Stress-strain Respect to Tree Height and Juvenility


This paper is the first in a three-part series investigating the mechanical properties of loblolly pine fibers. This paper outlines the experimental method and subsequent variation of latewood fiber mechanical properties in relation to tree position. Subsequent papers will deal with differences between earlywood and latewood fibers and effect of juvenility… (More)
