Characterization of woodstove briquettes from torrefied biomass and coal
Using waste biomass materials offers the potential to reduce the greenhouse gas emissions from fossil fuels. Torrefaction is very useful for improving the fuel properties of biomass in order to better match those of coal. ...
An experimental and numerical study of moisture flow and moisture-induced strain in fast-grown Sitka spruce
(Departamento de Ingeniería en Maderas de la Universidad del Bio-Bio en Concepción, Chile, 2019)
The use of fast-grown timber in the manufacture of engineered wood products is increasing; however, the fast growth rate results in a low-density timber that is susceptible to significant swelling and shrinkage deformations ...
The effect of thinning on mechanical properties of Douglas fir, Norway spruce, and Sitka spruce
(Springer Verlag, 2019-01-07)
Context: The relationship between silvicultural management and the quality of timber produced is not entirely elucidated. Aims: The effects of thinning on structural grade-determining properties of wood (elastic modulus, ...
