The macroscopic elastic behaviour of wood derives from the mechanical performance of the cells which form its microstructure. Numerical finite element models are presented
which relate the elastic properties of the wood continuum to local cell characteristics such as cell size, wall thickness, moisture content and microfibril angle. Preliminary results
show good agreement with observed values.
