The measurement of important wood and tree properties is not valuable unless we can use the information we gather to inform forest scientists and forestry practitioners. We therefore build models to help in the decision making processes.
Since the development of the Ecological Site Classification (ESC) decision support system we have been able to quantify the effects of location and rotation length on the resulting wood properties and have created an extension called the Managing for Timber Quality Decision Support System, initially for Sitka spruce.
Using X-ray computed tomography (CT), this project aims to build a multi-scale computational fluid dynamics model of moisture movement in wood.
