DescriptionSurface preparation has a profound effect on the rate of flow of fluid through wood, particularly in the longitudinal direction of flow. For best results, the surface must be devoid of any debris and/or obstruction. The use of a sharp, thin knife appears to be an effective way of preparing samples for natural permeability measurements.
