  • COST 508 - Wood mechanics : Workshop on service life assessment of wooden structures with special emphasis on the effect of load duration in various environments

Abstract

COST 508 Wood Mechanics is a joint action of 17 European member countries. One of its activities has been to organize workshops in wood mechanics related topics selected to respond to the actual need of expanding co-operation between researchers.
Workshop 1994 was held at the Technical Research Centre of Finland (VTT) in Espoo, Finland, on service life assessment of wooden structures with special emphasis of the effect of load duration in various environments. About 60 participants from many countries took part in the workshop. The programme included 4 invited papers and 21 voluntary presentations which are all printed in this book.
