Resumen

KORKUT, Süleyman et al. Evaluation of kiln-drying schedules for wild cherry wood (Cerasus avium). Maderas, Cienc. tecnol. [online]. 2013, vol.15, n.3, pp.281-292.  Epub 02-Jul-2013. ISSN 0718-221X.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-221X2013005000022.

Wild cherry wood (Cerasus avium (L.) Monench) lumber with a nominal thickness of 5 cm from Duzce region in Turkey was dried through conventional kiln drying using two different programs which are unprotective drying schedules, and protective drying schedules. The aim was to obtain the most desirable kiln schedule for keeping the wood quality at an appropriate level up to final moisture content of 12±2% was reached. Intensity of warping (twist, bow, cup, crook) occurrence, superficial, internal and end checks, residual stresses, drying rate, and moisture gradient in the dried woods were measured, and the results were analyzed. The results showed that there was a more homogeneous moisture profile, fewer occurrences of superficial checks, and absence of internal checks in the protective drying schedules due to low warping values compared to the unprotective drying schedules. Therefore, it seems that protective drying schedules might be recommended as optimum program for wild cherry lumber drying at commercial scale from Duzce region.
