The Face of Failure

The Face of Failure


In Claus Mattheck's intimitable style, and with the assistance of Pauli the bear, this book introduces the mechanics of failure, explaining how loading is always at war with material and form, alerts you to the weak places in structures, and shows how damage can be avoided by careful shaping. Although the problems are engineering the applications are - of course! - to trees in many cases, and the book will be of use to arboriculturists.
