Abstract
Moisture substantially influences the strength and durability of wood material. Therefore, it is crucial to non-destructively monitor the moisture content (MC) and moisture distribution in wood when it is applied as a construction material. In this research, both the electrical resistance and 3D X-ray scanning are used to measure the moisture distribution, more specifically the relationship between the structure of plywood and the moisture distribution is studied. The results show that the electrical resistance measurement method, in combination with X-ray scanning, could effectively monitor the moisture distribution in wood products and as such can be beneficially used as complementary techniques.
