The product use is increasing in textile, transportation, and construction industries owing to colour fastening, corrosion resistance, and improved wood life respectively.
Therefore, based on the wood defect's detection results, an improved wood species identification based on color moments is also proposed by deleting those defect points.
Fortunately, materials with much lower impacts are available, allowing an improved wood frame wall system (see "Conventional vs.
