Pore space analysis of beech wood : The vessel network


Hass, P; Wittel, F K; McDonald, S A; Marone, F; Stampanoni, M; Herrmann, H J; Niemz, P (2010). Pore space analysis of beech wood : The vessel network. Holzforschung, 64(5):639-644.

Abstract

Water transport in wood is vital for the survival of trees.
With synchrotron radiation X-ray tomographic microscopy
(SRXTM), it has become possible to characterize and quantify
the three-dimensional (3D) network formed by vessels
that are responsible for longitudinal transport. In the present study, the spatial size dependence of vessels and the organization inside single growth rings in terms of vessel-induced porosity was studied by SRXTM. Network characteristics, such as connectivity, were deduced by digital image analysis from the processed tomographic data and related to known complex network topologies.
