Abstract

This paper presents the results of a study utilising NMR to measure moisture content and strength of wood. Different species of wood at different moisture contents were evaluated. Standard destructive tests as well as non-destructive tests using NMR were conducted. Correlations were made between the results of destructive and non-destructive tests. As reported by other researchers also, an almost linear relationship was observed between the moisture content of wood and the intensity of magnetisation. Consistent trends were observed between the stress at failure of wood and the intensity of magnetisation of physical protons.
