Modelling Direct Current Resistivity Of Wood Polymer Composites
Keywords:Wood polymer composite, WPC, resistivity, geometrical model, rule of mixtures model
AbstractResistivity of wood and treated wood decreased with increasing MC and increasing polymer loading. A rule of mixtures model using decreasing resistivities of polymer and wood with increase in MC agreed reasonably with experimental results.
