Summary "Wood Fracture Characterization provides a guide to the application of modern fracture mechanics concepts to wood materials. The authors cover tests, data reduction schemes and numerical methods for wood structural applications, based on cohesive zone analysis. Five detailed Case Studies are included to link theory with engineering practice."--Provided by publisher
