Abstract

Wood is the source of structural fiber for use in many different ways. It is a renewable resource, plus, many wood products are recyclable. In the current controversy over the forest environment, it is easy to lose sight of the fact that the worldwide environment includes critical wood fiber usage for shelter, for communication media, and for hygienic products. Since its beginning, research on nondestructive testing of wood has had the goal of increasing efficiency in the use of the wood resource. Today, this goal is more important than ever.
