Accelerated laboratory test methods for the evaluation of natural decay resistance of woods


Revista Arvore 21(4): 555-561
Accelerated laboratory test methods for the evaluation of natural decay resistance of woods
Two assays of weight loss were employed to evaluate the natural resistance of wood against decay. The first procedure, referred to as the soil block assay, was based on the method ASTM D-2017-81(86). In the second method, the mini-agar-block assay, the size of the test block was reduced and the substrate for the fungus was changed. Five species of native Brazilian woods were infected with the fungus Gloeophyllum trabeum under controlled conditions of temperature and humidity.
