Moisture induced stress in timber is dependant on many factors. The driving force behind is the moisture variation in the surrounding air which causes induced stress due to restraint of hygro-expansion within timber elements (this can to some extent be seen analogous to thermally induced stress in steel). Today's computational power together with advanced constitutive models offers a  valuable tool towards understanding and determining moisture actions on timber. However, it seems that the… CONTINUE READING
