Abstract

The first part of a comprehensive review of the literature on wood published in the Journal of Materials Science since its inception in 1966 is presented. Papers are reviewed by subject ranging from the determination of the microfibril angle in the wood cell wall through to the evaluation of fatigue life. The role of moisture content in determining mechanical properties of wood is explored and mechanical properties are reported including creep, fatigue and fracture. It is concluded that JMS has played a key role in disseminating state of the art literature on new developments in the understanding of the structure-related properties of wood.
