In order to characterize the stabilities of dimensions and shape of wood and the effect of an improvement of sorption behavior, up to now, only the maximum values of swelling in the tangential and radial directions were mostly determined. An analysis of the sorption and swelling of wood under conditions which exist during the use in practice shows that… CONTINUE READING
