Disclosed also herein is a method of producing the cross-grained veneer, said method comprising cutting wood into veneer of desired thickness which assumes the straight grain, by using a veneer peeling machine equipped with a knife whose cutting edge waves
continuously in the lengthwise direction, and flattening the veneer having an uneven surface by means of thermal fixing or hot pressing, thereby artificially forming the cross grain on the surface of the straight-grained veneer.
Studying a class of coastal surface waves known as "edge waves
," he developed a theoretical model showing that deep-sea internal waves impinging upon a steep continental margin could produce coastal edge waves
of significant amplitude.
