Colour development in Pinus radiata D. Don. under kiln-drying conditions.
(University of Canterbury. Chemical and Process Engineering, 2002)
This study quantifies discolouration on the surface of Pinus radiata boards during kiln drying, particularly kiln brown stain (KBS), and models it as a function of chemical compounds present in the wood closest to the ...
Properties and Distortion of Douglas-fir with Comparison to Radiata Pine
(University of Canterbury. Chemical and Process Engineering, 2009)
The objectives of this study were to investigate stability related basic wood properties and to determine stability performance of New Zealand grown Douglas-fir and those of radiata pine wood. In this study, nine 60-year ...
Effect of initial stand spacing and breed on dynamic modulus of elasticity of Pinus radiata
(University of Canterbury. Forestry, 2006)
Wood stiffness or modulus of elasticity (MOE) is one of the most important wood properties for solid timber applications, and as such, the efficacy of wood use, especially for structural timber is strongly related to MOE. ...
Moisture content in radiata pine wood: Implications for wood quality and water-stress response
(University of Canterbury. School of Forestry, 2007)
This thesis studied the influence of moisture content on the dynamic estimation of stiffness in wood of Pinus radiata D. Don. This is an important non-destructive measure for estimation of stiffness in standing trees, logs ...
