Prerequisites: none
Aims of the course:
Knowledge of the properties of wood and wood-based materials as a prerequisite for the rational choice of processing technology and use of wood for structural applications in construction, furniture making and inhabited environments. Application materials engineering - understanding the relationship between chemical composition and anatomical structure and properties of wood.
Course contents:
1.Wood is described as composite anisotropic character of its properties based on its chemical composition and anatomical structure. (allowance 2/2)
2.Wood density and macroscopical structure of wood. (allowance 2/2)
3.Moisture content, wood moisture relations, sorption isotherma and hysteresis. (allowance 4/2)
4.Wood hygroexpansion - swelling and shrinkage, wood distortion. (allowance 2/4)
5.Moisture diffusion - stady-state and unsteady state diffusion of bounded watter. (allowance 4/2)
6.Wood permeability - stady-state and unsteady state permeability of free watter. (allowance 2/2)
7.Thermal propererties of wood - conductivity, heat capacity, thermal diffusivity, thermal expansion coefficient. (allowance 2/0)
8.Thermal Diffusivity - stady-state and unsteady state thermal diffusion. (allowance 2/2)
9.Acoustic properties - speed of sound, internal friction, vibrational properties. (allowance 2/2)
10.Optical properies - wood photodegradation. (allowance 2/0)
11.Electrical properties - conductivity, dielectric constant, dielectric power factor. (allowance 2/0)
12.Application of theory in practical exercises - numerical examples. (allowance 2/2)
