Title: Velcro mechanics in wood
Author: Kretschmann, David;
Source: Nature materials. Vol. 2 (Dec. 2003): Pages 775-776
Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication
Description: The remarkable deformability of wood in a moist environment resembles that of ductile metals. A combination of traditional mechanical tests and cutting-edge diffraction experiments reveal the molecular mechanism that determines such behaviour.
Keywords: Velcro mechanics, wood deformability, mechanical tests, diffraction
