Abstract
This study describes a method for measuring and evaluating intemal stresses in wood eaused by elimate variations. The aim of this work is to give elear experimental results of the stresses build up in wood perpendicular to the grain w hen exposed to multiple humidity cyeles. These results can be used by wood researchers in order to calibrate their theoretical models which describe the material behaviour of wood.
Two main areas of application where harmful intemal stresses perpendicular to the grain arise are:
• kiln drying of sawed timber
• structural timber in variable elimates
