To test the effects of kiln-drying on strength properties of Douglas fir and western hemlock, temperatures to 230 F, conditions for equilibrium moisture contents of 6 percent and 12 percent, and prolonged heating were investigated.
Prolonged heating and choice of conditions for 6 percent or 12 percent equilibrium moisture content...
A herd of California bighorn sheep (Ovis canadensis californiana),
