    Distortion of Sawn Timber

    This leaflet is a part of the total outcome of COST Action E53 “Quality control for wood and wood products”, which has been funded by the European Commission. Working Group 2 in COST E53 has been supported by European Drying Group, a pool of specialists in the field of timber drying.
    Many practitioners who process or use sawn timber have to deal with distortions of the dried material. Often information regarding this problem is missing. The aim of this leaflet is to supply information about the issue ‘distortion of sawn timber’ to those who have to face this problem in their daily work.
    The information starts with an overview about the various types of distortion. It also provides further information about the reasons, on how to measure, how to classify and how to minimize distortions. The leaflet is not product related. It is intended to handle ‘distortions’ in a more general manner. Nevertheless, users of this paper can easily find their own method to classify their specific wooden products in terms of distortion.
