    Predicting carbon for Douglas-fir Article in New Zealand Journal of Forestry 54(4) February with 15 Reads How we measure 'reads'.   Single pieces of Douglas-fir lumber were dried at the conditions typically used in industry, dry-bulb temperatures from 57 to 99[degrees]C ( to [degrees]F), wet-bulb depressions from 3 to 30[degrees]C (5 to 55[degrees]F), and air velocities from to 5 m/s ( to ft/min).

      Adjustment functions for Douglas-fir. The oven dry mass of aboveground tree components, dead wood, and litter of Douglas-fir stands at 10 biomass sites (from Appendix 1) and corresponding predictions obtained using the FCP prior to adjustment functions being applied are shown in Fig. y = x line indicates that Douglas-fir stands have more dry matter in stem bark, crown .   Drying times were determined for a group of round cross-section ponderosa pine logs and a group of square timbers. With regression analysis used to relate the two groups, it was shown that there is a square cross section of dimension S that results in the same drying time as a round cross section of diameter D, and the relationship between the two dimensions is S = D.

The M/C of the heartwood of the log will be about the same, but many of those old timber frames are still around, so maybe there is something to it.

The Douglas- fir used in the air-drying study (Simpson and Wang ,) contained signif- icant amounts of both sapwood and heartwood so we did not attempt to test the model with Douglas-fir.

The experimental plan was to com- pare drying times of the 29 round log sections with drying times of the 16Cited by: 1.

(19) applied Hart’s drying simulation to Douglas-fir lumber and concluded that it is an excellent tool for use in lumber drying research and im­ provements in kiln schedules.

Simpson et al. (24) used this simulation to place the kiln-drying time of five kiln runs on a. Air-drying is a logical alternative to kiln- drying, but the variables involved make estimating air-drying times difficult.

Chinese fir plantation sapwood and heartwood boards were treated by three drying methods: radio frequency-vacuum drying (RFVD), conventional kiln drying (KD) and high temperature drying (HTD). The maximum amount of dyeing solution uptake by the capillary rising method was used to evaluate the liquid penetration of the treated wood.

Drying Methods, Materials, and Procedures To develop a broad basis for drying time equations, we ran veneers of two species and four green thicknesses.

and thus heartwood usually requires longer drying time. The lower permeability of heartwood also makes it more susceptible to certain drying defects (ch.

In this article i try my best to answer that question, and let you understand just how complex can the topic of firewood drying time by species can be.

Equations for drying time during this period can be developed depending on the relationship between N and X and the properties of the solid. Kinetic models for predicting the drying rate curve, including during the falling rate period when internal heat and mass transfer mechanisms are limiting, are described.

METHODS OF WOOD DRYING By Daniel Yourdon Over the past year I have been gathering information on various methods of wood drying. This article is an attempt to consolidate that information. Specifically it will cover three methods: Boiling, Freezing, and Microwaving.

BOILING Drying time reduced an average of 50% over air-drying. In a recent case, S-GRN Douglas Fir 2×10’s were shipped from the west coast, box-piled for months and then installed in a rotted state. The installed MC was over 50%.

The remedy was expensive. Builders can also specify lumber stamped S-DRY (surfaced dry) or KD (kiln dry). This means that the lumber was surfaced when it was at or below 19% MC.

Douglas-fir 2 A A actual time to % MC was hours B VOCs are reported at 15% moisture content NCASI Method ISS/FP-A was used to measure the MACT HAP emissions.

The results for charge two are shown in Table 2. The sum of the HAPs emitted was lb/mbf for the Douglas-fir. Table 2. Drying has a number of close synonyms. Dehydration is the process of depriving a material of its water or the loss of water as a constituent.

The term is often used in food-drying operations to describe processes which strive to expel moisture but retain other volatile constituents in the original material, and which are responsible for valuable aromatic and flavoring properties.

Laser incised dry (mc=18%) and green (mc=33%) Douglas-fir was treated by the passive impregnation method of wood preservation having two different incising densities ( and holes/m2) and dipping times (3 and 12 hours).
