Pinus radiata D. Don cants (100 or 200 mm thick × 4.8 m) from a commercial sawmill operation were assessed in the green state using near infrared (NIR) spectroscopy. Near infrared spectra were acquired along the centre line of one cant face and at 50 mm offsets to one side of the centre line. The cants were ripped to produce either 50 × 100 or 50 × 200 mm rough sawn boards, which were then kiln-dried and gauged to final dimensions. The long-span modulus of elasticity (L MoE) on each board was… CONTINUE READING
