Title: Dynamic torsional unwinding of southern pine tracheids as observed in the scanning electron microscope
Author: McMillin, C.W.;
Source: Svensk Papperstidning 9(319-321
Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication
Description: In previous research on the process for making groundwood in a double-disk refiner, a theoretical stress analysis indicated that tracheids of Pinus taeda L. may fail while under torsional stress and unwind into ribbonlike elements. Such elements provide the coherence necessary for strength development in these pulps. Depending upon their physical state, tracheids may also buckle or shear and yield no ribbons.
Keywords: Mechanical pulps, hip groundwood, tracheids, cell structure, mechanical properties, southern pines, Pinus taeda
