The general rules of life-cycle analysis are introduced, including selected work phases, such as calculating carbon storage potential in the case of wood. The basic structure of wood is presented with links to its properties such as appearance, dimensional stability, and strength. Students will learn about the mechanical properties of wood as well its dimensional stability and moisture interaction at the cell-level. Students will become familiar with the most common long-lived wood products that are used in various applications in the built environment.
