Title:
Methods to determine wood moisture content and their applicability in monitoring concepts 
Abstract:
The reaction of wood to moisture forms an integral part of any task in connection with this natural and renewable building material. Changes in wood moisture content lead to changes of virtually all physical and mechanical properties (e.g. strength and stiffness properties) of wood. Another effect of changes of the wood moisture content is the associated shrinkage or swelling of the material. The existence of high moisture content can initiate decay or growth of fungi. The correct estimation o...    »
