Introduction

ü Wood is a hard fibrous structural tissue found in the stems, roots of trees and other  plants..

ü It is an organic material, a natural composite of cellulose fibres (which are strong in tension) embedded in a matrix of lignin which resists compression.

ü Despite the many human uses to which various woods are suited, at a fundamental level, wood is a complex biological structure,  a composite of many chemistries and cell types acting together to serve the needs of the plant.

ü Thermal properties of wood are needed in applications such as fuel conversion, building construction, and other areas of industry
