Abstract
Wood used in industrial settings, and in some arid parts of the United States, may be subjected to very low relative humidity (RH). Analytical models available for predicting the effect of moisture content (MC) on the properties of solid-sawn lumber imply significant strength loss at very low MC...

Abstract
Tests regarding the long-term behavior of posttensioned timber connections have been performed at the ETH in Zurich. The aim of these tests is to estimate the loss in tendon force that can be expected during the lifetime of a structure. Several posttensi...
