Three-Dimensional Analysis of Elastic Behavior of Wood Fiber<sup>1</sup>
AbstractAn exact solution of stress for each layer of cell wall under tension has been obtained by considering wood fiber as a hollow composite anisotropic circular cylinder. Numerical results of stresses and the relative angle of twist of a single fiber, as well as the values of each layer of the cell wall, are given for six hypothetical wood fibers.
