About this book

The subject of nondestructive evaluation of wood properties has its origin in the necessity to solve practical problems. This book comprehensively reviews numerous aspects of imaging and nondestructive characterization of wood products ranging from trees to the most complex wood-based composite. The text is of particular interest to those who are concerned with the study of wood as an engineering material for fundamental research or practical application. It presents the imaging of the internal structure of wood with methods based on the propagation of electromagnetic waves, elastic waves and heat, and imaging with nuclear particle radiation based methods.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"A comprehensive account is given of the principles, practice and achievements of imaging the internal structure of wood and wood-based composites. Techniques for non-destructive evaluation which are discussed are ionizing radiation computed tomography, thermal imaging, microwave imaging, ultrasonic imaging, nuclear magnetic resonance, and neutron imaging. There is an extensive bibliography and a subject index. The book will be of particular interest to those concerned with wood as an engineering material, as well as research scientists and students of wood structure." (CAB Abstracts, July, 2008)
