Potential of the resistograph for studying wood quality

24 July 2017
Wood quality depends on various parameters and attributes of the material. Wood density, which corresponds to the mass of a material per volume, is among the most studied properties for evaluating wood quality. However, the measurement of this property is time-consuming and used techniques, such as the X-ray densitometer, are expensive and requires a large number of samples. The resistograph is a device for evaluating the condition of standing trees. This non-des... Continue reading »
