Moisture-induced stresses resulting from climate variations of the environment can induce cracks in timber members and thus affect the safety and serviceability. The present study highlights—by means of numerical simulations—the distribution and development over time of moisture-induced stresses in various glulam cross sections during wetting. The results show that local stresses may be significantly larger than average stresses, the extent of which strongly depends on the geometrical… CONTINUE READING
