Description

From the Introduction: 'The purpose of the present study is to determine the rate at which various fuels can absorb water. The present study is concerned primarily with relative absorption and drying rates between various types of fuels. Future research will attempt to determine actual rates, based on various environmental parameters, such as temperature, and in the case of drying, relative humidity.'
