The 3rd bankruptcy discusses a few of the theories which were proposed to provide an explanation for the sorption isotherms for hygroscopic ma­ terials equivalent to wooden. bankruptcy four considers hygroexpansion or the shrinking and swelling of wooden linked to moisture switch. bankruptcy five is anxious with how moisture strikes throughout the mobile wall of wooden in keeping with either moisture and temperature gradients.
