  4. MICROWAVE MEASUREMENT OF WOOD MOISTURE PROFILE DURING KILN DRYING

    SBC: Dedicated Electronics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    MANY OF THE DEFECTS THAT APPEAR IN WOOD DURING DRYING OR DURING MATCHINING ORIGINATE FROM SHRINKAGE DURING DRYING AND FROM ITS ASSOCIATED STRESSES. THE ABILITY TO SENSE SHRINKAGE AND STRESSES MAY ALLOW SUCH DEFECTS TO BE AVOIDED NY CAREFUL CONTROL OF TEMPERATURE, HUMIDITY, AND AIRFLOW CONDITIONS WITHIN THE KILN. THIS COULD ULTIMATELY RESULT IN IMPROVED WOOD QUALITY AND INCREASED LUMBER YIELD BY RE ...
