Understanding the anatomy of wood is the basis for creating high-quality wooden products, structures and design.
This course is aimed at students wishing to specialize in the materials science of wood, this course will also be of interest to students of architecture, civil & structural engineering, materials science & engineering and related disciplines, who have an interest in the possibilities offered by wood. The course covers wood formation, wood structure & anatomy, wood-water relationships, and the physical properties of wood, including wood density & porosity, fluid flow in wood, the thermal & hygrothermal properties of wood, as well as acoustic properties. The course also covers short- and long-term mechanical properties and introduces students to the main agents responsible for wood degradation.
More practical information about the course will be updated later in the year in MyCourses:
