Abstract

The present study examines the physical condition of a group of waterlogged woods from Yenikapi 35 (YK 35) shipwreck and assesses their degree of degradation. Maximum water content and density of the samples taken from the waterlogged wood of the shipwreck are calculated for this study. The analyses revealed that the samples had an average density of 0,15-0,51 g/cm3 with Maximum water content values of % 125-610. The data in question is initially used to find the degree of degradation of the wooden parts and then as a reference for management of the conservation works.
