Post-tensioned timber frame

On this page you can find the following:

 

Strains

The strains are measured with two different types of optical deformation sensors.

Displacement

The absolute deformation is measured with the tachymeter and by leveling. The measurement positions labelled with the letter F are situated on the post-tensioned timber frame.

Moisture content

The moisture content is measured along two sides of the post-tensioned timber frame. The measurement needles were inserted to a depth of 6cm into the beams and columns.

Post-tension force

Load Cells (LC) measure the post-tension force at the anchorage of the tendons in the timber frame.
