New article about creep properties

Lei Han and Dr. Andreja Kutnar, InnoRenew CoE researchers, together with José Couceiro and Dick Sandberg from the Luleå University of Technology, published a new scientific article, “Creep Properties of Densified Wood in Bending”, in Forests.

Their result demonstrates that thermo-hydro-mechanical densification combined with resin-impregnation or thermal modification reduces the creep of Scots pine timber under a long-term bending load in a constant climate.
