AbstractThe correct prediction of the behavior of wood components undergoing environmental loading or industrial process requires that the hygric, thermal and mechanical (HTM) behavior of wood are considered in a coupled manner. A fully coupled poromechanical approach has been used to perform a parametric study on wood HTM behavior, and the results have been validated with neutron imaging measurements on a moist wood specimen exposed to high temperature. Further, HTM behavior of wood during
