Overview

Wood as an engineering material can be technically defined "as a hygroscopic, orthotropic, biological, and permeable material having extreme chemical diversity and physical complexity with structures, that vary extensively in their shape, size, properties and function". Therefore, using wood to its best advantage and most efficiency in engineering and technology applications, specific characteristics or chemical, physical and mechanical properties must be considered. This book aims to provide the research and review studies on wood and wood products with special emphasis in machining aspects. The present research book can be used for final undergraduate engineering course (for example, wood, materials, mechanical, manufacturing, etc) or as a subject on wood and wood products at the postgraduate level. Also, this book can serve as a useful reference for academics, wood researchers, mechanical, manufacturing and materials engineers, professionals in areas related to the wood and wood products.
