Title: Relationship between longitudinal stress wave transit time and moisture content of lumber during kiln-drying

Author: Simpson, William T.; Wang, Xiping.;

Date: 2001

Source: Forest products journal. Vol. 51, no. 10 (Oct. 2001).:p. 51-54.

Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication

Description: The relationship between longitudinal stress wave transit time and wood moisture content (MC) was examined as a potential means of estimating MC control points in dry kiln schedules for lumber. A linear relationship was found between the relative transit time and the average MC of sugar maple and ponderosa pine boards dried according to typical kiln schedules.
