MOISTURE - EFFECTS AND MEASUREMENT

By:  Eugene Wengert, President: The Wood Doctor's Rx

At least 3/4 of all wood manufacturing defects are related to or caused by moisture.  This session will begin with answers to the following questions:  How is wood moisture content (MC) related to temperature and humidity of the air?  What changes in wood occur when the MC changes, including swelling and shrinking?  Why do defects mostly show up within the first month or two after manufacturing, but seldom after a year or more later?  What is the correct MC for lumber and wood products?  How can I control MC after the lumber leaves the kiln?  VERY PRACTICAL.

Come learn more about this topic at MOISTURE: Effects and Measurement session at the IWF 2016 Education Conference.
