Predicting the pore-filling ratio in lumen-impregnated wood

Guanglu Wu, Darshil Shah, E Janecek, H Burridge, T Reynolds, P Fleming, Paul Linden, Michael Ramage & Oren Scherman
Lumen impregnation, unlike most other wood modification methods, is typically assessed by the pore-filling ratio (PFR) (i.e. the fraction of luminal porosity filled) rather than by weight percentage gain (WPG). During lumen impregnation, the impregnants act on the voids in the wood rather than on the solid mass (e.g. cell walls), but the PFR cannot be measured as conveniently as the WPG during processing. Here, it is demonstrated how the PFR can be calculated directly...
