  1. 1. Means to measure people's attitudes towards wood

    Author : Olof Broman; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Wood Technology; Träteknik;

    Abstract : Wood is a material with many faces. It evokes feelings in us that no artificial material can do. Wood has inherent aesthetic features which, rightly used, give the final product competitive advantage over other materials.In this thesis people's feelings and preferences for Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris) wood surfaces have been examined.

  3. 3. SAWING STRATEGIES FOR TROPICAL HARDWOOD SPECIES : Simulation studies based on industrial conditions of Mozambique

    Author : Pedro Ah Shenga; Dick Sandberg; Olof Broman; Mats Nylinder; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; sawing strategies; tropical hardwood species; simulation; volume yield; log grading; umbila; jambirre; Träteknik; Wood Science and Engineering;

    Abstract : The harvesting of Mozambique tropical hardwood species is considerable higher than the natural regrowth in the forest and the stock is decreasing drastically. Therefore, it is important to improve the material recovery when the wood is refined (i.e., in sawing and further refinement to products such as joineries, furniture etc. READ MORE

  4. 4. Machine Learning for Appearance Grading of Sawn Timber using Cameras and X-ray Computed Tomography

    Keywords : AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; Träteknik; Wood Science and Engineering;

    Abstract : This doctoral thesis deals with a new approach for the appearance grading of sawn timber adapted to the requirements of modern sawmilling industries and timber market situations. Appearance grading of sawn timber allows wood products to be made with a specific visual style due to wood features such as knots. READ MORE
