Short-term creep tests in tension and in compression were conducted on southern pine, Douglas-fir, yellow-poplar, and Parallam™ samples at temperatures ranging between 20 and 80°C and at 6, 9 and 12% moisture content. The principle of time-temperature superposition was applied to form a master curve that extended for a maximum of 2 years. The horizontal(More)
