Description

From the text ... 'Improved utilization of bark is dependent, to a large degree, on knowledge of its properties. Very little information is available on physical properties of bark, however, and none is available on volumetric changes of bark due to moisture sorption. A preliminary investigation was conducted in connection with other studies on bark thermal properties, and the results of the volumetric changes are presented here.'
