Variation in physical properties of Artocarpus heterophyllus Lam. wood grown in Thrissur district, Kerala

Author(s): Pavin Praize Sunny, Anoop EV, Vidyasagaran K and Vishnu BR
Abstract: The study physical properties of jack wood plays an important role providing its strength and durability and also for its utilization in various aspects. The properties like the colour parameters (L* value, a* value and b* value), texture, moisture content, green specific gravity, oven dry specific gravity and shrinkage (volumetric, tangential and radial) were taken into account. The analysis revealed significant differences between the zones for shrinkage (volumetric, tangential and radial) between three zones while rest of the properties showed non-significant results between the three zones and girth classes within these zones. The strength and durability of the woods obtained from different zones are thus being analysed and the data could be further used for utilization of jack wood.
