Abstract:

The need to measure the volumes of all materials produced in the sawmilling process is becoming more important as the value of these materials increases. This paper introduces a geometric model with which to calculate the volumes of these materials with a minimum of data gathering. Methods to calculate the volumes of green lumber, dry lumber, green chips, green sawdust, and dry planer shavings are given. The mathematical and geometric theory making up the model is illustrated by equations and drawings. Author
