Study on the Longitudinal Tensile Strength of Tracheids of Heat-Treated Wood
In this paper, the zero-span tensile strengths of tracheids of Chinese fir and Masson pine were investigated, and the effect of the moisture on the tracheid strength was also discussed. Furthermore, the influence of thermal treatment on the zero-span tensile strengths of tracheids were analysed, and research of relationship of zero-span tensile strengths, chemical components and cellulose crystallinity were also conducted. This study tried to explore the inherent mechanism of heat treatment on the cell level.
