Finite element analysis of boron diffusion in wooden poles

IRG/WP 03-40263

K Krabbenhøft, P Hoffmeyer, C G Bechgaard, L Damkilde

The problem of describing the migration of dissolved boron in wood is treated with special reference to the commonly used remedial treatment of wooden poles. The governing equations are derived and discussed together with some of the material parameters required. The equations are solved by the finite element method and finally, results showing the effect of different treatment strategies are presented.

Keywords: Boron, diffusion, poles, remedial treatment
