Paper Title:
The Effect of the Compression on the Mechanical Properties of Wood Material
  Abstract

The wood is one of the most favourable structural material. It appears on all fields of the ordinary life. It is difficult to say an application where the wood is not used due to its cheap price, availability and just simply the beauty. Beside of the wide range of process technologies a new process appeared. This process changes the properties of the material and brings many new applications to this traditional material. This process is the compression of the structural wood material. This publication deals with the effect of the compression on the mechanical properties of two hardwoods (beech: fagus sylvatica, oak: quercus) by the help of the three-point bending test and the Charpy impact test.
