This book brings together up to date information from research and practice about the interaction between moisture changes and mechanical loading, which may lead to excessive deflections or joint movements in timber structures. It has important applications in timber engineering, and consequences for national and international structural codes of practice.

Table of Contents

Preface. The importance of deflection requirements in design of timber structures. Basic knowledge. Sensitivity of creep to different constant environments. Deformation kinetics. Present knowledge of mechano-sorptive creep of wood. Time dependant slip of joints in timber engineering. Creep of wooden structural components: testing methods. Variation of moisture in timber structures. Creep analysis of timber structures. Conclusion. Appendix: National building code creep factors. Index.
