Abstract

It is possible to explain the so called mechano-sorptive effect that occurs in wood by moisture cycling by an earlier derived general deformation kinetics model, as a bond breaking process of secondary bonds, causing internal shifts of adjacent layers with respect to each other, due to sorption.
