Title: Equilibrium moisture content of wood in outdoor locations in the United States and worldwide

Author: Simpson, W. T.;

Date: 1998

Source: (Research note FPL ; RN-0268):11 p. : ill. ; 28 cm.

Publication Series: Research Note (RN)

Description: With relative humidity and temperature data from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the average equilibrium moisture content for each month of the year was calculated for 262 locations in the United States and 122 locations outside the United States. As an aid for storage of kiln-dried lumber, a graph is presented for determining the reduction in equilibrium moisture content that results from heating air in an enclosed storage space above the temperature of the outside air.

Keywords: Wood moisture, Equilibrium moisture content, Outdoor storage
