The Effect of Relative Humidity and Moisture to the Durability of Spruce and Laminated Timber
A/Z ITU journal of Faculty of Architecture
Wood is a hygroscopic material. Material properties are affected by the hygroscopicity of wood; for example, the strength value decreases with increasing moisture content of wood. Wood in the living tree generally has a moisture content (MC) of 30% or greater. The cell wall is fully saturated. After the tree is felled, the green wood is exposed to atmospheric conditions. It loses water until it comes to an adequately low moisture content to be at equilibrium with the surrounding atmosphere.doi:10.5505/itujfa.2017.18480 fatcat:6i4wutta4ncktbnpwuqaqoxbs4
