Natural fibre composites are prone to absorb moisture from the environment which may lead to dimensional changes, mold growth, degradation of mechanical properties or other adverse effects. In this work we develop a method for direct non-intrusive measurement of local moisture content inside a material sample. The method is based on X-ray microtomography, digital image correlation and image analysis. As a first application of the method we study axial transport of water in a cylindrical polylactic acid/birch pulp composite material sample with one end exposed to water. Based on the results, the method seems to give plausible estimates of water content profiles inside the cylindrical sample. The results may be used, e.g., in developing and validating models of moisture transport in biocomposites.

Time-resolved classification of dog brain signals reveals early processing of faces, species and emotion Kujala, Miiamaaria V.; Kauppi, Jukka-Pekka; Törnqvist, Heini; Helle, Liisa; Vainio, Outi; Kujala, Jan; Parkkonen, Lauri (Nature Publishing Group, 2020)Dogs process faces and emotional expressions much like humans, but the time windows important for face processing in dogs are largely unknown. By combining our non-invasive electroencephalography (EEG) protocol on dogs ...
