Wood/water relationships during kiln drying and reconditioning of softwoods

This project identified and characterized the bonding states of water in softwoods during kiln drying, subsequent high humidity and/or steam treatment and later stabilization or storage periods, and recommended improved kiln schedules and conditioning processes to reduce timber storage time with improved stability.
