Wood-water relationship of untreated and heat-treated wood was studied. Specimens of Eucalyptus grandis, E. saligna, and E. citriodora were submitted to five conditions of heat treatment: 1808C and 2208C with air; 2208C, 2508C, and 2808C with N2. The wood-water relationships were accurately studied in a special device, in which the moisture content (MC) of the sample was measured with a highly sensitive electronic microbalance placed in a climatic chamber. The dimensions of the sample were… CONTINUE READING
