Abstract

The objectives of this project were to:

1. Understand why moisture gradients occur in Australian hardwoods during drying and their affects on the performance of timber in service;

2. Improve existing technology(ies) and/or processes to reduce moisture content (MC) variability between and within boards during drying of Australian hardwoods in an economical and practical manner.
