Abstract [en]

This project consists of 5 parts: 1. Heat treated wood. Properties in relation to applications 2. Stoorn project 3. Conference paper: Oil heat treatment of wood 4. Outside exposure of wood 5. Extreme climate changes and heat treated wood The first part includes the general studies of heat treated wood applications and trends for the present and future. The second part is telling about the project which I am involved in order to do research in the field of improvement the quality of heat treated timber for outside exposure. The project is aiming to build a huge entertaining complex in the shape of big moose: the cladding for the moose should be performed from heat treated timber. Parts 3 – 5 are the research for the Stoorn project. The third part was not only studies of one of the heat treatment ways which can be developed in future, but also participation in the conference. The fourth part displays the results from my colleague’s studies. The fifth part aimed to test the heat treated timber into relation to changeable climate.
