WOOD DRYING SCIENCE
As the title indicates, this course covers the process of drying wood. Drying lumber is studied in depth, focusing on the relationship between wood, temperature, relative humidity and air flow. Learners will learn moisture content measuring techniques, types of kilns and controls, how to generate kiln schedules and procedures for sampling, while operating a lab sized conventional steam dry kiln.
