TECHNICAL - PHYSICAL SPECIFICATIONS OF OAK

Wood is an anisotropic material (it does not have the same physical properties in all directions or a similar structure). Because the wood structure is characterized by the parallel orientation of the fibers, the mechanical properties depend largely on the fiber direction.

Only a thorough study of these features allow the use of wood in various areas of use:

  1. Axial direction (fiber direction);
  2. Radial direction (development period);
  3. Tangential direction (growth rings).

The same material can present different behavior depending on the orientation of the fiber:

  • a)¬†With radial direction;
  • b)¬†With tangential direction.

The fiber direction (1) the wood movement is minimal and the mechanical stress resistance is maximal, while the direction perpendicular to the fiber (2) or (3) is opposite- the wood movement is particularly high, while the mechanical stress resistance is very low.
