Drying of boxed heart square timbers I. Changes of surface stress and cross-sectional shrinkage of dehumidifier kiln-dried timbers of sugi



Drying of boxed heart square timbers I. Changes of surface stress and cross-sectional shrinkage of dehumidifier kiln-dried timbers of sugi



Mokuzai Gakkaishi = Journal of the Japan Wood Research Society 40(7): 758-765



In Japan, boxed-heart square timbers of sugi (Cryptomeria japonica) with cross-sectional dimensions 10.5x10.5 cm have been used widely as structural members of wooden houses, though there is often a problem with drying defects such as checks, splits and dimensional instability. In this study three kinds of sugi timbers were dried in dehumidifier kilns: pithless, boxed-heart and boxed-heart with a groove cut on one face of the timber to preclude undesirable checks and splits.
