Abstract
This document presents the preliminary ideas of a draft procedure for the assessment of existing timber structures. The estimation of the mechanical properties in existing timber structures is usually based on visual stress grading and non-destructive techniques. Both techniques have some important peculiarities respecting their application to the grading of new sawn timber. A procedure should be defined for the different tasks involved in inspection and evaluation. The irregular crosssection geometry in old timber structures requires some specific considerations. Visual grading is very limited by problems with access, and non-destructive techniques help to complete the information. The most frequent nondestructive parameters are estimation of density and determination of wave transmission velocity. Different options and questions are proposed to create a more consistent and practical evaluation procedure.
