Product description

Timber: Its Nature and Behaviour adopts a materials science approach to timber, and comprehensively examines the relationship between the performance of timber and its structure. This book explains a wide range of timbers physical and mechanical behaviour (including processing) in terms of its basic structure and its complex interaction with moisture. The performance of timber and panel products is also related to the levels set in new European specifications and with the associated methods of testing.

Review quote

"This edition marks a major revision of the text, which explores the material and physical properties of a material so ubiquitious that it is often taken for granted by materials science researchers. Dinwoodie demonstrates the unique and often curious behaviours of this material and purs particular emphasis on the relationship between timber's structure and performance. Chapters cover structure, appearance, movement, flow, and deformations in timber along with numerous other topics. Materials Evaluation, August 2001, Volume 59 Number 8.."
