Parallel session 2 (WG2) Strength of Aged Load Bearing
Structures // POSTER N° 8
Introduction
Background:
Heat treatment was used in previous studies as an ‘accelerated
ageing’ and showed so far good results on different softwood with
respect to the darker color, fragile behavior and the improved stability
against humidity changes.
Our objective:
Determine the effect of heat treatment on creep behavior of
hardwood, such as Poplar wood, in transverse direction (literature

is mainly focused on longitudinal direction). These choices were motivated by our previous work on panel paintings (COST IE0601 Florence 2007).

Host institute & Funding:
This study was conducted in Kyoto University thanks tothe
Japanese Society for Promotion of Science (JSPS).
