Scientific article about densification of New Zealand-grown Eucalyptus species

Marica Mikuljan and dr. Andreja Kutnar, InnoRenew CoE researchers, together with Rosie Sargent from Scion in New Zealand, published a scientific article »Densification of New Zealand-grown Eucalyptus species: Effect of grain orientation and densification process on wood properties,« in Wood and Fiber Science journal.

The purpose of the article is to investigate the thermo-hydro-mechanical (THM) densification process applied to Eucalyptus fastigata and Eucalyptus nitens woods. The study explores the impact of grain orientation and the extent of densification (surface densification vs. bulk densification) on the final wood properties.

The Wood and Fiber Science journal is an online, open access journal, which publishes recent studies from the fields of wood and lignocellulosic materials, biomaterials, timber structures and engineering, biology, nano-technology, natural fiber composites, timber treatment and harvesting, botany, mycology, adhesives and bioresins, business management and marketing, and operations research.
