AbstractWood is one of the most commonly used building materials in Canada, and its moisture content in storage or service is of particular itnerest in many situations. Although its water vapor sorption characteristics at temperature above 70°F have been extensively investigated, little information is available about its equilibrium moisture characteristics below freezing, a condition that frequently occurs when it is incorporated in exterior walls or stored in unheated buildings in winter. For this reason, and because of the spelcific capability of instrumentation available, a number of different woods were included in a study of the equilibrium moisture contnts of building materials at low temperatures at the Prairie Regional Station of the Division of Building Research in Saskatoon. Measurements were also undertaken at a temperature of 70°F in order to correlate the results with those other investigators.
