If you’re interested in getting all that makes The Wood Database unique distilled into a single, real-world resource, there’s the book that’s based on the website—the best-seller, WOOD!Identifying and Using Hundreds of Woods contains many of the most popular articles found on this website, as well as hundreds of wood profiles—laid out with the same clarity and. Wood is a hygroscopic, meaning it is a material that absorbs water. Water gets into wood in three ways: as a fluid through the cell lumens through capillary tension, as vapour through the cell lumens, and as molecular diffusion through the cell walls. The moisture content of wood means the relationship between the mass of water in it and the mass of the timber without the water. (For example. 2 -U. S. Dei.t. Agr. Tech. Bui. 2S2, "Strength-moisture Relations for Wood," 'ANC Handbook on the Design of Wood Aircraft Structures (Restricted), 19^2. k These values apply to fiber stress at proportional limit in the standard compression-perpendicular-to- grain test, in which load is applied to only part of the area of the specimen.

Five of the groups were to be used for the strength - moisture content investigation while the remaining three groups were to be used for other purposes. The five groups were brought to the basement of the laboratory where each board was placed on edge in a rack with a 2 in. (5. 1 cm) air space between boards (no controlled environment).

Specific gravity is often used in place of density to standardize comparisons of wood species - as with density, the higher the specific gravity, the heavier the wood, and the stronger it tends to be. At a moisture content of 12 percent, most woods have a specific gravity between to (water has a specific gravity of ). The wood of Eucalyptus grandis is light, fairly hard and easily workable. It has a straight fiber, easily cracks and has a light reddish color, being that its heartwood has dark reddish color and. Chapters are included on wood moisture and the environment (including methods of measuring wood m.c., factors which affect its e.m.c. and the effect of m.c. on wood strength), moisture sorption thermodynamics, theories of water sorption by wood, hygroexpansion in wood, moisture movement in the wood cell wall and electrical properties of wood (including the principles involved in their Cited by:   Balsa is type of wood which follows the same behavior as other type of wood when subjected to moisture which is it's strength decreases to fixed level and then after some moisture content it becomes constant (remember wood already contain 10% mois.
