The water-soaked samples and the end-matched controls were conditioned to 12 percent EMC and then measured at four locations along the side grain using a test apparatus based on the back pressure percent of regulated pressure of 138 kPa as detailed in previous articles (Boutelje and Gagglund 1988, Wallace and Schmidt 2000).

The permeable specimens had a far greater range for both absorption and pressure, but the percent weight gain was typically greater than 50 percent and the percent of regulated pressure for the side grain averaged 38 percent with a range of 13 to 77 percent.
