    Description

    Structural lumber products are traditionally manufactured from softwoods. However, with shrinking supplies of softwood lumber and abundant supplies of hardwood lumber, there is increasing interest in the use of hardwoods for structural applications. One factor that will be important in both the technical and economic feasibility of using hardwoods for structural lumber is drying. This paper presents some results on developing accelerated kiln schedules for drying hard maple 2 by 6s for structural uses.
