Abstract The time dependency of the orthotropic compliance for Chinese fir wood [Cunninghamia lanceolata (Lamb.) Hook] has been investigated by performing compressive creep experiments in all orthotropic directions. Time evolution of the creep strain in the axial and lateral directions was recorded by means of the digital image correlation (DIC) technique, to determine the diagonal and nondiagonal elements of the viscoelastic compliance matrix. The results reveal the significant influence of…
