- CALCULATION OF THE ENERGY CONSUMPTION FOR DEFROSTING OF THE WOOD CHIPS
Аn approach for the calculation of the specific mass energy consumption (in kWh.t-1) needed for defrosting of the wood chips, which contain both frozen bound an free water, has been suggested. For the calculation of the a software program has been prepared in MS Excel 2010. With the help of the program calculations have been carried out for the determination of for oak, acacia, beech, and poplar frozen chips with moisture content in the range from u = 0.4 kg·kg-1 to u = 1.0 kg·kg-1 and with an initial temperature at the range from t0 = –40 oC to t0 = –1 oC. At temperature equal to –1 oC the defrosting process of the wood chips has been fully completed.

- MATHEMATICAL DESCRIPTION OF THE SPECIFIC HEAT CAPACITY OF THE WOOD ABOVE THE HYGROSCOPIC RANGE DURING WOOD FREEZING
A mathematical description of the specific heat capacity c of wood above the hygroscopic range during wood freezing has been suggested. The description takes into account the physics of the freezing process of both the free and the hygroscopically bound water in the wood. It reflects also the influence of the fiber saturation point of wood species on the value of their c during wood freezing and the influence of the temperature on the fiber saturation point of the wood during its freezing. A software program has been prepared for the computation of c according to the suggested mathematical description. With the help of the program, computations have been done for the determination of c of often used in veneer and plywood production beech and poplar wood with moisture content 0.4 kg∙kg-1≤ u≤1.2 kg∙kg-1 at the temperature range between 0 oC and –60 oC during freezing of the wood.

- APPLYING THE SOFTWARE PACKAGE TABLE CURVE 2D FOR COMPUTATION OF PROCESSING AIR MEDIUM TEMPERATURE DURING FREEZING IN A FREEZER AND DEFROSRING OF LOGS
A mathematical description of the change in the processing air medium temperature Tm during freezing in a freezer and subsequent defrosting of logs using a software package Table Curve 2D v.5.01 has been suggested. This package allows for the selection of equations, which provides the best similarity between the calculated with them values of Tm during the log’s freezing and defrosting processes and the respective experimentally established data for Tm. The values of the coefficients in the selected equations have been determined in the work for the cases of decreasing in Tm in the range from about 20 оС to about –30 оС during separately 30 h freezing and of the following increasing in Tm up to about 20 oC during the subsequent 30 h or 50 h defrosting of 6 pine logs with diameter of 240 mm and length of 480 mm.

- COMPUTATION OF THE ENERGY CONSUMPTION FOR WARMING UP OF FLAT OAK DETAILS BEFORE THEIR BENDING
A software program has been prepared in the calculation environment of Visual Fortran for solving of own 1D non-linear model of the one sided heating process of flat wood details. With the help of the program, the 1D non-stationary temperature field in flat oak details with initial temperature of 20 oC, moisture content of 0.15 kg.kg-1, thickness of 12 mm, 16 mm, and 20 mm during their 30 min one sided heating at temperature of 80 oC of the heating metal body has been calculated. After integration of the temperature field, the energy consumption for warming up of the details before their bending in the production of curved back parts of chairs has been calculated. The obtained results are graphically presented and analyzed.

- COMPUTATION OF THE CHANGE IN THERMAL CONDUCTIVITIES OF POPLAR LOGS DURING THEIR FREEZING
A mathematical description of the thermal conductivities λ of frozen and non-frozen wood has been introduced in an own non-linear mathematical model of the logs’ freezing process. For the numerical solution of the model a software program has been prepared in the calculation environment of Visual Fortran Professional. With the help of the program, the 2D non-stationary distribution of the temperature and the change of λ in the longitudinal section of poplar logs with diameter of 240 mm and length of 480 mm during their 50 h freezing in a freezer at about –30 oC have been calculated. The change of λ in the radial and longitudinal directions of the wood on both surfaces and in the center of the subjected to freezing logs during the freezing process has been calculated, visualized and analyzed.
