Abstract

A study on moisture distribution in several types of malaysian wood is presented, based on the transmission of various wood samples by neutron beam via neutron radiography technique. The aim of the study was to investigate the water uptake behaviour, and drying process in different species of wood. The experimental set-up, the detector system used and the evaluation procedure are described. Neutron radiographic images that describe the moisture distribution in the wood samples have been produced. Qualitative information obtained from the images provides a general understanding of the behaviour of wood during its interaction with water under different conditions. Results obtained indicate the potential for further use of this method in studying several moisture-related practical problems in wood manufacturing industry
