Study of the physical and mechanical properties, workability and drying of teak (Tectona grandis L.f) in Puerto Libertador (Cordoba)



Study of the physical and mechanical properties, workability and drying of teak (Tectona grandis L.f) in Puerto Libertador (Cordoba)



Revista Facultad Nacional de Agronomia Medellin 53(1): 913-939



The Caribbean Reforest Company established a teak plantation in November 1987 in the region of Puerto Libertador, Cordoba, Colombia. Data were collected on specific gravity (green, air dried, oven dry, and adjusted at 12% humidity), shrinkage and humidity content, static bending, compression parallel and perpendicular to grain, shear parallel to grain, hardness, nail resistance and toughness.
