Forestry Compendium

Comprehensive, encyclopedic resource for information on forestry

Changes to Compendia distribution data: the distribution tables, maps and references in datasheets have been restructured to handle the data better for updating and align with a geographic standard. Further details are available on the About page.

AbstractFull Text

In our research, service life of wood exposed outdoor in the third use class, determined with double layer test, was investigated. These results of the real case scenario were compared to results of laboratory tests. In the first part of the investigation, Norway spruce wood specimens were...

AbstractFull Text

In this study, time-dependent deformation, elastic deformation, creep and stiffness features of bookcases were determined. In experiments Eastern beech (Fagus Orientalis Lipsky.) were used as solid wood materials, particleboard and medium density (MDF) were used as wood composites materials and...

AbstractFull Text

The aim of this work was to investigate the influence of deposition of TiO2 nanoparticles on spruce wood on water-vapour transmission (WVT) and hydrophobicity. Modification of the substrate was performed by low temperature synthesis of nanocrystalline TiO2 directly on surfaces of the specimens. TiO...

AbstractFull Text

In this study are given the results of experimental investigations on the stiffness coefficients under compression bending test of the most frequently used T-shape corner joints of frame structural elements with cross section 50×30 mm made of sweet chestnut solid wood. It was established that the...

AbstractFull Text

Wood welding is a mechanical, physical and chemical process during which melt is produced, which then turns into a solid joint after cooling. The paper shows current world-wide knowledge on welding of modified wood while the results of wood welding were received from the Faculty of Forestry in...

AbstractFull Text

Utilization of wood residues is important not only for producing energy, but also for termochemical conversions. Wood biomass can be liquefied with di- or poly-hydroxy alcohols into a useful liquid stage. We prepared a self-crosslinked coating entirely from liquefied spruce wood (Picea abies...

AbstractFull Text

Beech wood (Fagus sylvatica L.) was chemically modified by citric acid (CA) using different thermo-condensation regimes and catalysts. The dimensional stability of wood was significantly improved. Chemical bonds between citric acid and hydroxyl groups of wood were tested with the leaching of...

AbstractFull Text

The objective of this paper was to determine and compare machining properties of thermally modified and steamed beech-wood (Fagus sylvatica L). Analysis was made of the influence of feed speed, rake angle and wood treatment on chips properties (particle size distribution, bulk density and factor of ...
