Further studies toward the prevention of brown stain in sugar pine lumber


Scudder, Nathan Frost (1928) Further studies toward the prevention of brown stain in sugar pine lumber. Master's thesis, California Institute of Technology.


Since this report is a continuation of the work described by Mr. Steinour in his thesis, and rightly should accompany that thesis, the reader is referred directly to it for a description of the nature of the problem, the existing knowledge pertaining to it before Mr. Steinour started his work, and the facts concerning the stain and means of preventing it that he discovered. The experimental method he developed for making small scale kiln drying experiments was followed exactly in every detail, including the use of the same drying oven and instruments, and the same assumptions in calculating the data taken, so that the results described herein should be entirely comparable.
