Abstract : The specific heat of wood is an important physical property, especially in the areas of wood drying, fire performance of wood, and other applications relating to heat transfer. Unfortunately, inadequacies are apparent in the information available on specific heat of wood. Hopefully this discussion will suggest caution in using the published values as well as stimulate a further examination of this property. (Author)
