Estimate of the equilibrium moisture content of wood panels



Estimate of the equilibrium moisture content of wood panels



Scientia Forestalis (70): 23-29



Using Nelson's equation (1983), the equilibrium moisture content (EMC) of 13 different products (including oriented strandboard, medium density fibreboard, particleboard, plywood and high pressure laminated wood) for 26 Brazilian states was estimated using data on climatic norms (series 1961-1990). EMC monthly averages for each material and for each location were obtained. An estimate of medium EMC for each material in Brazil was obtained.
