Moisture analysis on timber elements

Work civile

The degree of humidity of the structural and decorative wooden elements is closely correlated to the deformation and to the pathologies of degradation of the same. The wood moisture significantly affects the test results of the physic - mechanical characteristics of the material, hence the importance of knowing the moisture content of the wood (and his environment) to integrate the visual surveys, as well as resistographic and ultrasonic tests,  and thus have a more complete picture of the state of conservation of a wooden element.
