A Note on Cell Wall and Wood Substance Densities
Keywords:Cell-wall density, wood substance density, cell-wall voids, sorption compression
AbstractThe differences in reported values of material densities for wood are discussed and analyzed with respect to cell-wall voids. A model is proposed to account for the reported differences and for general use in calculating relationships between wood volume and density.
