Technical Note: Analysis of Mechanical Relaxation Intensity of Wood at Various Moisture Contents
AbstractThis study analyzed mechanical relaxation data by the well-known Gaussian function from which the relaxation intensity was determined for various moisture contents over a range of temperatures (-81-0°C). These data were used to suggest a range of bonding mechanisms for sorbed water.
