The characterisation of structural wood was the third topic chosen for the Ecotimbercell webinars.
On 26 May, Begoña Jiménez, from the Plataforma de Ingeniería de la Madera Estructural (PEMADE), was in charge of opening the day with the presentation of the Characterisation Guide for structural wood developed in the LIFE project. Next, Martina Fernández from the Joint Research Unit, Circular economy of wood for low-energy construction (in which the timber company FINSA and the University of Santiago de Compostela participate through PEMADE), spoke about the visual classification of wood.
On 2 June we continued talking about non-destructive classification methods with Raquel Gonçalves, from the Universidade Estadual de Campinas UNICAMP from Brazil, and about destructive methods with María Portela, from PEMADE.
