The objective of this study was to investigate the fracture characteristics and compressive strengths of compressed laminated wood (CLW) according to loading directions. The results for compressive strength in the CLW tended to be constant regardless of the number of laminae. It appears that there is no size effect under compressive load, and the CLW had the different strength values and the fracture characteristics according to the loading direction and temperature. In particular, the fracture behavior of the CLW in room temperature and cryogenic tests was such that it exhibited a burst phenomenon under the compressive load in the parallel direction relative to stacking direction. It was identified that the fracture characteristic for the burst phenomenon is associated with shear fracture in the laminated composite material.
