Measuring the thermal properties of green wood by the transient plane source (TPS) technique
TypeArticles dans des revues avec comité de lecture
The thermal properties of wood in the green state have been determined by the transient plane source (TPS) technique. Data are presented on thermal conductivity ( λ ), heat capacity ( C ), and thermal diffusivity ( κ ) at moisture contents (MCs) above the fiber saturation point, which are based on measurements using the HotDisk ® apparatus. Four wood species (Douglas fir, beech, birch, and spruce) were tested, and the results are compared with literature data and those obtained by the flash method. A linear relationship was found between the thermal properties λ , C , and κ on the one hand and MC on the other. Equations predicting the thermal values as a function of MC and wood anisotropy are presented. Wood C and λ increase with MC, but wet wood diffuses heat more rapidly than dry wood.

Experimental validation of green wood peeling assisted by IR heating – some analytical system design considerations BATSALE, Jean-Christophe; KUSIAK, Andrzej; HUGHES, Mark; DENAUD, Louis; DUPLEIX, Anna (De Gruyter, 2014)Experimental results have been used to validate a 2D simulation model in order to check its reliability in predicting the heating of a green log rotating under an IR heating source. For the purpose of validation, it was ...
DUPLEIX, Anna; OULD AHMEDOU, Sid' Ahmed; BLERON, Laurent; ROSSI, Frédéric; HUGHES, Mark (De Gruyter, 2013)Heating green wood logs by infrared (IR) radiation during peeling for veneer production has been numerically simulated, focusing on the heating kinetics of a green wood cylinder rotating with a decreasing radius. The results ...
DUPLEIX, Anna; DE SOUSA MENESES, Domingos; HUGHES, Mark; MARCHAL, Rémy (Springer, 2013)There is a lack of quantitative data on the penetration depth and the amount of energy absorbed by green wood under infrared (IR) radiation. This lack of knowledge is a potential barrier to the development of IR heating ...
The effect of log heating temperature on the peeling process and veneer quality: beech, birch, and spruce case studies DUPLEIX, Anna; DENAUD, Louis; BLERON, Laurent; MARCHAL, Rémy; HUGHES, Mark (Springer, 2013)Heating green-wood prior to peeling is necessary to improve both peeling process and quality of veneer. This study investigates optimum heating temperatures by soaking of beech, birch and spruce. Experiments have studied ...
BATTAGLIA, Jean-Luc; SABOUL, Manal; PAILHES, Jérôme; SACI, Abdelhak; KUSIAK, Andrzej; FUDYM, Olivier (American institute of physics, 2014)The in-plane and in-depth thermal conductivities of epoxy-carbon fiber composites have been measured at 77 K and 300 K. The experimental technique rests on the hot disk method. The two thermal conductivities as well as the ...
