Influence of moisture sorption on the tangential compression strength of Mahogany wood ( Swietenia macrophylla King)

Influence of moisture sorption on the tangential compression strength of Mahogany wood (... Moisture sorption tests and compression tangential tests at 25°C were carried out on specimens of mahogany ( Swietenia macrophylla King) wood from Peru. The tests were performed over seven adsorption and five desorption moisture conditions, and differences in strength between adsorption and desorption curves at a given equilibrium moisture content were evaluated. The results showed that second-order effects in mahogany wood were not discernible in either the tangential compliance coefficient or for the stress at the proportional limit in tangential compression. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Wood Science and Technology Springer Journals

Abstract

Moisture sorption tests and compression tangential tests at 25°C were carried out on specimens of mahogany ( Swietenia macrophylla King) wood from Peru. The tests were performed over seven adsorption and five desorption moisture conditions, and differences in strength between adsorption and desorption curves at a given equilibrium moisture content were evaluated. The results showed that second-order effects in mahogany wood were not discernible in either the tangential compliance coefficient or for the stress at the proportional limit in tangential compression.
