Microwave nondestructive testing (MNDT) methods are fast, contactless, accurate and continuous techniques for evaluation of moisture content, grain angle and density of the wood. MNDT techniques using free-space microwave measurement (FSMM) system involve measurement of reflection and transmission coefficients in free-space. Materials such as wood which are lossy and anisotropic causes a linearly polarized electromagnetic wave to be depolarized (elliptically polarized) upon transmission through… CONTINUE READING
