Traditionally, the durability of timber is determined in laboratory decay tests or ground contact field tests. Since it is commonly accepted that results from those tests are not directly transferable to less severe above-ground exposures, this study aimed at assessing alternative durability measures related to the moisture performance of wood. Results from above-ground tests including continuous wood moisture monitoring were analyzed. Decay ratings determined in double-layer field tests were… CONTINUE READING
