Abstract
As the amount of wood felled from European forests will in next years increase by approximately 14%, the wood will have to be used more efficiently, for higher added value uses and without drying defects or with less waste. One way with which these aims can be achieved is to improve drying of wood. If the quality of the end product is to remain acceptable a better understanding of wood behaviour during drying and better control of kilns is required. Because of great variability and heterogeneity, the wood needs to be dried in control manner. The kiln control of drying process is very specifics and must be founded on significant evaluation of relevant parameters. The aim of the project is to assure on the basis of relevant parameters an optimal drying condition defined with temperature, psychometrical difference and air velocity.
