Effects of creosote and CCA on moisture movement in southern pine and red oak

Effects of creosote and CCA on moisture movement in southern pine and red oak

Wood and Fiber Science 19(1): 1-8

A vapocup apparatus was used to determine rates of moisture movement and water-vapour permeability values for red oak and southern pine with CCA or creosote loadings of 6.4 and 168.2 kg/msuperscript 3, respectively. Specimens were subjected to RH of 50, 75 and 90%. Rates of mass transfer and water vapour permeability values increased exponentially with increasing RH. Rate of moisture movement was greater for southern pine than for red oak.
