After planing and equilibrating the EGAR boards, a detailed visual inspection of the glueline was conducted that showed a high number of bondline failures.
The results were also analyzed in terms of what boards failed to meet the maximum warp allowed for the Structural Light Framing grades shown in Table 5 for two conditions: (1) after drying and before planing and (2) after planing and equilibrating. Results showed the following grade distribution for after drying and before planing: 24 percent No.
The initial high MC (153%) and large variability of MC in the wet and dried panels may be the causes of loss of lumber quality occurring after planing and equilibrating to 12 percent MC.
A possible explanation for this may be that the pH of the equilibrating solutions is dependent on ionic strength of the system; as it increases the soil become more acidic.
When KN[O.sub.3] 0.001 M is used, the ionic strength in the equilibrating solution could also change as the cation concentration increases; therefore, the overall effect should alter the surface charge at each point of the isotherm.
Thus, the presence of sewage sludge represents only marginal deviations from the calculated concentration of heavy metals in isotherm equilibrating solutions.
In each case, these responses are equilibrating (albeit moderate), helping to buffer the NZ cycle from domestically-sourced shocks and, to a lesser extent, from shocks sourced from its major neighbour.
(10) First, the equilibrating response of the NZDAUD to NZ and NV shocks indicates that a currency union would entail loss of an existing equilibrating adjustment mechanism for New Zealand.
An exchange rate adjustment will have differing effects on the traded and non-traded sectors of the economy; the exchange rate response may not necessarily be equilibrating for both sectors.
Effect of Equilibrating Time on the Adsorption and Desorption Curves
The effect of equilibrating time on phosphate adsorption and desorption at two concentrations showed different characteristic of the three soil series to adsorption and release of P with the time of contact between soil and phosphate, which was helpful in understanding the behavior of the P adsorption and desorption in soils.
The effect of equilibrating time on P adsorption at the lower concentration of 5 mg P L-1 illustrated that with an increase in time, the rate of adsorption increased.
