Sharing Knowledge, Fueling Innovation

Think Wood values and endorses research that pushes boundaries and helps shift perceptions about building with wood. From stress test results and material comparisons to product advancements and the latest innovations, you’ll find everything you need to choose wood with confidence.

We are continually updating our library of research to provide the latest information on mass timber building products. If you can’t find a particular document or have new research to share, please let us know at info@ThinkWood.com.

If you’re working on a wood building project, free technical assistance is available from WoodWorks-Wood Products Council. Contact your local representative at help@woodworks.org.

Hygrothermal Simulation: A Tool For Building Envelope...

Is it possible to gauge the risk of moisture problems while designing the building envelope? This article provides a brief introduction to computer-based hygrothermal (heat and moisture) simulation, shows how simulation can be useful as a design...

Mid-Rise Wood Constructions: Investigation Of Water...

One of the key parameters required as input to the numerical simulations is the percentage of water entry behind the cladding systems and through deficiencies as a function of wind pressure and Wind Driven Rain (WDR). In cases that lack information...

Climatological Analysis For Hygrothermal Performance...

This report discusses the selection of locations for the hygrothermal simulation task of the project on Mid-rise Wood Buildings and the determination of spray-rates and pressure differentials for the water penetration testing portion of the...

The Effect Of Drying On Timber Frame Connections Post...

Timber structures face a unique risk from flooding. Elevations in moisture content due to prolonged wetting will lead to a reduction in the mechanical properties of the building. Despite recent growth of timber construction in the UK and a known...
