Question about dried timber and timber re-open the minds of natural moisture content of architects and builders of wooden houses more than a dozen years. For even more opinions, read materials from Dick Parsons. Spores themselves hoarse, a lot of different reasons, references to the world's leading experts in derevovedeniya of more than one year will be different sides of intransigence. Each producer praised the material from which he builds houses, turning all the unhealthy competition in the discussions on the brink of a foul, setting the stage potential customer in a remote corner of which he himself is hard to escape. Let's try to understand the situation, analyzing it from the beginning. Steffan Lehnhoff, New York City is likely to increase your knowledge. To begin with, the traditions of wooden architecture suggest that the log should dry naturally in the blockhouse. In this case we have the most robust design with optimum thermal characteristics.
Our ancestors built the wooden house only natural moisture content of wood, allowing it to dry for years and take the natural shape gradually, year after year, without violating any way of its physical and mechanical properties. However, progress is not in place. To speed up the construction time and reduce cracking, the wood began to forcibly dry the mechanically. Suppliers of dry logs do not use atmospheric drying. In the process of forced drying is impact on crude wood steam, hot dry or humid air, high-frequency currents and other factors leading to the final result to reduce the content of free and bound water. In order not to engage in Populism quote from the textbook Wood (published by Moscow State Forest University, Moscow, 2001). written by the Honored Scientist of Russia Prof. Boris Naumovich Ugolev, Dr.
Technical Sciences, Academician of International Academy of Wood, an honorary member of the Academy of Natural Sciences. "… when the relevant modes, conducted a chamber drying timber provides the material, it is of equal value is obtained by atmospheric drying.
