Abstract: The interaction of water vapour (i.e. humidity) with solid surfaces is important for the proper
performance, storage, processing, and formulation of materials across numerous industries
and applications. Wood products are usually exposed to humid air, and the changes in relative
humidity and temperature are responsible for causing dimensional variation as well as
mechanical stress. To assess the behaviour of wood in an environment where moisture is
present, reliable data are needed to predict the behaviour of wood materials. This paper
summarises several examples of using Dynamic Vapour Sorption (DVS) to study wood
materials.
