Abstract : The dielectric properties of wood were studied in a laboratory configuration that simulated typical lumber loads in a dry kiln. The transient effect of kiln conditions on the lumber stickers was found to influence dielectric properties more than had been recognized previously. Other details of the dielectric properties apparently depended on interaction of transverse moisture gradients with other variables in the kiln and in the electrical instruments.
