Fundamentals of wood drying by Patrick Perré (Editor)

Book description
Written by 14 European, 1 Australian and 1 Canadian experts, Fundamentals of Wood Drying is a reference book whose major aim is to provide sufficient knowledge to scientists and engineers to analyse and improve existing situations. The book also may be a first step in the development of innovative procedures that hopefully will enable drying practitioners to imagine, simulate, improve, and implement any new idea… The present book originates from the work of WG 2 (Fundamentals aspects of wood drying) of COST action E15 (Advances in the drying of wood). It should be considered as a the state-of-the-art of fundamental knowledge concerning the phenomena involved in wood drying. The book contains 13 chapters: From fundamental to practice: the interaction chain Wood anatomy, an introduction Psychometrics Sorption isotherms in wood Shrinkage, swelling and warp caused by moisture changes Bound water migration in wood Fluid migration in wood Creep deformation in drying wood External heat and mass transfer Coupled heat and mass transfer Stress development Discoloration of wood during drying Airflow within kilns

Nondestructive Characterization and Imaging of Wood by Voichita Bucur

Book description
The subject of nondestructive evaluation of wood properties has its origin in the necessity to solve practical problems. This book comprehensively reviews numerous aspects of imaging and nondestructive characterization of wood products ranging from trees to the most complex wood-based composite. The text is of particular interest to those who are concerned with the study of wood as an engineering material for fundamental research or practical application. It presents the imaging of the internal structure of wood with methods based on the propagation of electromagnetic waves, elastic waves and heat, and imaging with nuclear particle radiation based methods.

Selecting and Drying Wood (The New Best of Fine Woodworking) by Fine Woodworking Editors (Editor)

Book description
This book collects the best articles from recent issues of Fine Woodworking on the subject of finding and working with wood. Wood is the one thing that woodworkers have in common and there is endless fascination with the working properties of various species, how to select and season wood and how to store it. Wood has a way of behaving as if it’s still alive, moving with seasonal changes in temperature and humidity. Learning to work with it rather than against wood movement is critical to successful woodworking.

The Conversion and Seasoning of Wood. A Guide to Principles and Practice by William H. Brown

Book description
The Conversion and Seasoning of Wood covers the many aspects of timber conversion, detailing the most advantageous methods of cutting to produce the best yield and to preserve the best features of the wood. A full account of the methods of drying timber follows and includes both air and kiln drying, as well as dehumidification, drying defects, and the stabilization of wood. Because of the possibility of a large amount of waste the conversion of timber is a very important subject for the craftsman supplying his own wood. William Brown treats this area very carefully and offers remedies of the many pitfalls encountered in the economic conversion of wood. Subjects covered include the best methods of converting and getting the most from your log; using a chainsaw set-up to convert logs and small trees directly for the user; and how to season your wood and protect it and properly store it. The Conversion and Seasoning of Wood is an excellent book for the farmer, woodworker, or any craftsman involved in the conversion or seasoning of wood. -- Midwest Book Review
