Abstract
Correction factors are provided for the Delmhorst resistance-type moisture meters equipped with 2-pin insulated electrodes. These factors allow the operator to adjust the meter reading for a wood temperature range of -40 degree centigrade to 50 degree centigrade. Factors are provided for 12 softwood species and 14 hardwood species.

Abstract
The project Decision Aids for Durable Wood Construction underwent a major review with the hiring of a new project leader (O'Connor) in September 1998. In consultation with the project liaisons, the work on this project since its start-up in 1993 was examined, the primary task of developing a computer-based tool for the building industry was reconsidered, the context of worldwide research into building envelope moisture failures was reviewed, and a revised project plan was proposed. Decision Aids was a self-contained project for its first three years, with efforts concentrated on knowledge acquisition, expert system experimentation and other foundation work for development of a computer tool. With a rise of interest in building envelope moisture failures across North America and elsewhere, Decision Aids activity shifted into a mode that was reactive to projects and events external to Forintek. This was necessary due to the level of effort external agencies, media and research labs were devoting to the topic. In particular, where the actions of outsiders began to have an influence on wood in construction, we found it critical to participate in order to ensure the fair and correct treatment of wood. The new project leader was asked to review the project and either get the project back on its original track or suggest a redirection. The project goal, to assist end users in best application of wood, was determined to be sound. In addition, the project leader recommended that resources continue to be allocated to participation in outside research efforts and other related activities. However, it was recommended that the project objective to develop computer-based decision tools be reassessed. Instead, the project leader recommended a course of action focused on tasks both shorter in term and smaller in scope, which will enable Forintek to deliver results better tailored to the immediate needs of industry in a time of building envelope moisture failure "crisis." The new project plan is split into two areas: 1) address building envelope moisture failures that are due to existing information not arriving in the right hands (i.e., a technology transfer problem); and 2) address building envelope moisture failures that are due to a lack of information (i.e., a research problem). The technology transfer area will create a formal plan for communication to the building industry, will enable Forintek to experiment with developing pathways to that new target audience, and will provide the means for the wood industry to provide helpful durability information to the public through a relatively neutral third party (Forintek). The research area will explore opportunities for limited scope experiments or collaborative field studies of wood system durability performance, with the intent of verifying or modifying codes, standards and best practice guides.

Abstract
This study involved the on-site evaluation of commonly employed equipment and procedures for evaluation of moisture content in solid-wood products. Specifically, a DC-resistance and two RF-based moisture meters were evaluated. The main overall objective was to identify procedures or develop information to allow more accurate final MC estimates to be determined. Lodgepole pine lumber of 25 and 40 mm thicknesses was employed for the test Material was tested at three time intervals spanning from the completion of drying to approximately 30 hours after drying. Meter readings were compared against oven-dry moisture contents. In most situations the moisture meters employed tended to underestimate final moisture content with the error varying from close to zero up to about 3 percent. The errors observed seemed to be consistent for a given test. This opens the possibility of employing site-specific correction factors to obtain better estimates of oven-dry moisture content. Problems may still arise when comparing mill results of moisture tests against those performed elsewhere by customers and end users.
