Title: Thermal conductive properties of wood, green or dry, from -40° to +100° C: a literature review

Author: Steinhagen, H. Peter;

Date: 1977

Source: Gen. Tech. Rep. FPL-09. Madison, WI: U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, Forest Products Laboratory. 10 p.

Publication Series: General Technical Report (GTR)

Description: This literature review was conducted in connection with a study on heat transfer in frozen logs. A combination of data by two researchers on specific heat and thermal conductivity and diffusivity in the radial direction of wood, at various temperatures and moisture contents, is discussed and compared with data from other sources. Limited information found for the tangential and longitudinal directions is also included in the report. In addition, a data set of average thermal diffusivities in the radial direction of wood is provided for temperature intervals involving complete thawing.

Keywords: Heat transfer, logs, thawing, frozen wood, moisture content, properties, thermal conductivity, thermal diffusivity, specific heat, diffusivity, wood properties, conduction
