Heat treatment is often used for improve the dimensional stability of wood. In this study, effect of heat treatment on equilibrium moisture content (EMC) of oak (Quercus petraea Lieb.), chestnut (Castanea sativa Mill.), calabrian pine (Pinus brutia Ten.) and black pine (Pinus nigra Arnold.) woods, obtained from Kastamonu Forest Enterprises of Turkey, was examined. Wood specimens were subjected to heat treatment under atmospheric pressure and presence of air at three different temperature (130… CONTINUE READING
