Abstract : Developing a data base of information on how environmental factors affect design properties of lumber will require research on wood degradation mechanisms, on techniques for detection and assessment of degradation, and on developing quantitative descriptions and models of degradation. The level of degradation that can be tolerated in structures must also be evaluated. (Author)
