  1. 1. Wood Fingerprints Recognition of Sawn Wood Products

    University dissertation from Luleå tekniska universitet

    Author : Tobias Pahlberg; [2014]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Träproduktutveckling; Wood Products Engineering;

    Abstract : This thesis deals with wood fingerprints and presents ways to track sawn wood products through an industrial process using cameras. The possibility to identify individual wood products comes from the biological variation of the trees, where the genetic code, environment and breakdown process creates a unique appearance for every board.

  2. 2. Improving Wood Fuel Pellets for Household Use Perspectives on Quality, Efficiency and Environment

    University dissertation from Karlstad : Karlstads universitet

    Author : Magnus Ståhl; Bengt Månsson; Johan Vinterbäck; [2008]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; wood fuel pellets; sawdust; drying; pellet production; recirculation; quality; efficency; environment; Miljö- och energisystem; Environmental and Energy Systems;

    Abstract : Bioenergy is one of many contributors to reducing the use of fossil fuels in order to mitigate climate change by decreasing CO2-emissions, and the potential for biofuels are large. The wood fuel pellets are a refined biofuel made of sawdust, which is dried and compressed to achieve improved fuel and transportation properties. READ MORE

  3. 3. On the small strain stiffness of some Scandinavian clays and impact on deep excavation

    University dissertation from Karlstad : Karlstads universitet

    Author : Tara Wood; [2016]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; soft clay; small strain stiffness; degradation; seismic testing; sample quality;

    Abstract : This thesis presents the results of a comprehensive study on the small strain stiffness of several Swedish clays and its tentative effect on the design of retaining structures. A combination of field measurement techniques, seismic dilatometer and surface seismics, are complemented with bender element testing of the retrieved samples. READ MORE

  4. 4. On reflections of wood wood quality features modelled by means of multivariate image projections to latent structures in multispectral images

    University dissertation from Luleå : Luleå tekniska universitet

    Author : Olle Hagman; [1996]

    Abstract : Classifying logs and boards has an essential economic impact on the forest products industry. In a modern production chain, quality control and raw material specifications are essential to fulfill production system demands as well as end user demands. READ MORE

  5. 5. Development towards an efficient and sustainable biofuel drying

    University dissertation from Växjö University Press

    Author : Peter Bengtsson; Thomas Thörnqvist; Tom Morén; [2009]
    Keywords : LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; biomass; bioenergy; drying; bed drying; drying zone; modeling; VOC; terpenes; wood fuels; wood chips; sawdust; Norway spruce; Scots pine;

    Abstract : The usage of biofuel as well as wood fuel has increased in Sweden and all of Europe during recent decades, and there are several reasons to believe that this increase will continue. An important reason for this increase is that the environmental and climate problems caused by fossil fuels are becoming even more evident. READ MORE
