Due to its organic cell-type structure, the density of wood remains modest. Thus, as its strength and stiffness can - in certain cases - attain remarkable values, its levels of specific strength and stiffness (absolute strength or stiffness divided by density) can reach magnitudes which are competitive with those of other construction by: Another type of wood cells, known as longitudinal or axial parenchyma cells, function mainly in the storage of food.

Diffusivity. The microscopic cellular structure of wood, including annual rings and rays, produces the characteristic grain patterns in different species of grain pattern is also determined by the plane in which the logs are cut at the saw mill.

In transverse or cross sections, the annual rings appear like concentric bands, with rays extending outward like the spokes of a wheel. This chapter focuses on the anatomical structure, ultrastructure, lignin and polysaccharide distribution, and chemical composition aspects in relationship to the field of grass lignocelluloses.

Although wood is the most widely used raw material for industrial utilization, many other plant fiber as well as nonwood plant fibers are utilized.

Anatomically, the “wood” of monocots is diverse from both hardwoods and softwoods, and can usually be spotted easily, even without magnification. Viewing the endgrain reveals a fairly simple structure of darker-colored fibrovascular bundles embedded throughout a mass of lighter-colored parenchyma cells.

There are two major chemical components in wood: lignin (18– 35%) and carbohydrate (65– 75%). Both are complex, polymeric ma-terials. Minor amounts of extraneous materials, mostly in the form of organic extractives and inorganic minerals (ash), are also present in wood (usually 4– 10%).

Overall, wood has an elemental composi. The Handbook of Wood Chemistry and Wood Composites provides an excellent guide to the latest concepts and technologies in wood chemistry and bio-based composites. The book. ISBN: X OCLC Number: Description: xiv, pages: illustrations ; 23 cm.

For structural applications, wood is most commonly found as either sawn timbers, lumber, or glued laminated members (glulams).
