At present, no single book adequately covers a basic understanding of wood book satisfies the need for such a work. It describes drying in practice. This the fundamental basis of kiln-drying technology, to enable forest companies to imFrove their drying operations as high-quality timbers become scarcer and of yesteryear can no longer be tolerated. Adaptive the wasteful practices is no longer good enough. Innovations change based on past experience of the material being dried and the processes require a sound understanding of drying. Newer techniques, such as the use of ultrahigh temperature sea soning and superheated steam under vacuum, require an even greater depth of physical understanding for these methods to be used effectively and economically. book provides a description of modern ideas about wood structure, This moisture movement and stress development, from which models of the drying process are developed to give the kiln operator important information about the course of drying under specified conditions, and thus a means is compared with practice wherever for rational process improvement. Theory possible.

Drying Hardwood Lumber focuses on common methods for drying lumber of different thickness, with minimal drying defects, for high quality applications. This manual also includes predrying treatments that, when part of an overall quality-oriented drying system, reduce defects and improve drying quality, especially of oak lumber. Special attention is given to drying white wood, such as hard maple and ash, without sticker shadow or other discoloration. Several special drying methods, such as solar drying, are described, and proper techniques for storing dried lumber are discussed. Suggestions are provided for ways to economize on drying costs by reducing drying time and energy demands when feasible. Each chapter is accompanied by a list of references. Some references are cited in the chapter; others are listed as additional sources of information.

It was not until the turn of the previous century that the human dependence on wood was higher than any other sources of energy. It was considered to be a one of the wonders of nature that was created to provide comfort and support to the humanly civilized way of living. Although there is no historical confirmation about the first use of wood by humans, still it dates back to a very long period of time when it was a major lifestyle resource for our ancestors from the ancient times. Wood was utilized not just as a source of heating or drawing energy, but also as a material for making tools, household furniture, sheltering objects, transporting objects, decorative purposes, culinary items and cutlery, and a large number of other items that one can only imagine. As per historians, wood was the original material used in most of the first time scientific inventions. To date, wood is a very important part of human living. Life without wood can be very difficult and expensive.

Interest in solar drying of lumber has increased in recent years because previous results had indicated that: Drying times are shorter and final moisture contents are lower in solar drying than in air drying; much less lumber degrade occurs in solar drying when compared to air drying; and the cost of energy is less in solar drying than in kiln drying. Work in the field of solar drying has reached the point at which dryer designs are being modified or need to be modified to provide more efficient dryers. In order that these modifications can be made intelligently, it is necessary to identify the weak areas (such as excessive solar reflectance from the walls) in the present dryer designs. The objective of this study was to identify the major energy losses in the solar dryer at Colorado State University, and then to suggest various design changes, based on theoretical considerations, to reduce these losses to leave more energy for the primary task of drying wood.

Excerpt from The Kiln Drying of Lumber: A Practical and Theoretical Treatise But it is not with the living tree that our present subject has to do - all of that belongs to the province of Forestry - but rather with the product after the tree has been cut down and sawed into lumber or other forms of wood. Lumbering and Forestry are not an titheses, but both Should accomplish the same result, the perpetuation of the forest for future use, whatever that may be. Lumber is a crop, as are vegetables, and the forest may be utilized, and at the same time conserved for future use.
