WWW Computer Program for Adjusting Mechanical Properties of Dimension Lumber for Changes in Moisture Content

Lumber strength properties vary with changes in moisture content. This program allows you to predict a property (P2) of dimension lumber at a target moisture content (MC2) given that you know the value of the property (P1) at an initial moisture content (MC1). Properties and models for which this program provides estimates include:

You may choose either of the following methods of running the program:
