Control of wood thermal treatment and its effects on decay resistance: a review
Key messageAn efficient use of thermal treatment of wood requires a depth understanding of the chemical modifications induced. This is a prerequisite to avoid problems of process control, and to
Tropical timber atlas. Technological characteristics and uses
This atlas presents technical information for professionals who process and use temperate or tropical timber. lt combines the main technical characteristics of 283 tropical species and 17 species
Heat treatment of Tunisian soft wood species: Effect on the durability, chemical modifications and mechanical properties
Last decades, wood was promoted as building material. Wood heat treatment by mild pyrolysis has been reported to improve biological durability and dimensional stability of the material and
Advantage of vacuum versus nitrogen to achieve inert atmosphere during softwood thermal modification
Wood heat treatment is an attractive alternative to improve decay resistance of wood species with low natural durability. Durability and mechanical properties are strongly correlated to thermal
Improvement of the durability of heat-treated wood against termites
Thermal modification is an attractive alternative to improve the decay durability and dimensional stability of wood. However, thermally modified wood is generally not resistant to termite attacks,
Utilization of temperature kinetics as a method to predict treatment intensity and corresponding treated wood quality: Durability and mechanical properties of thermally modified wood
Wood heat treatment is an attractive alternative to improve decay resistance of wood species with low natural durability. However, this improvement of durability is realized at the expense of the
