Research overview:
The lumber of sugi (Japanese cedar) contains a wide distribution of initial moisture content, so that it is not easy to reduce the cost of producing homogeniously dried woody materials. In order to supply the dried sugi materials at a lower price, it becomes a more important subject to investigate drying methods. In this study, we investigate a prelimiNAry unnatural drying (pre-drying) method so as to homogenize the initial moisture content, for realizing the cost reduction of drying by reducing the cost needed for a normal drying. In addition to the above, we propose a drying system including both of the prelimiNAry drying method investigated and the normal drying.
