Shrinkage and moisture content measurements for thin sections of Eucalyptus regnans have shown that although total volumetric shrinkage was positively correlated with specific gravity, the relationship did not conform to the general equation s = ϱ f (Stamm 1935, 1952) in that the straight regression line was significantly different from a line passing through the origin. This contrasted with the relationship between shrinkage from 17% EMC to 0% moisture content and specific gravity which, in… CONTINUE READING
