Mathematical modeling of the process compaction of wood

  • O. R. Dornyak


Within the framework of the mechanics of heterophase systems a mathematical model for the process of pressing wood has been offered; this model takes account of the influence of its complex rheological properties and surface phenomena in thin interlayers of water on the change in a porous structure. With numerical methods, a study has been made of the influence of the sample’s humidity and temperature fields on the strength and quality of the material obtained.
