In this paper “case hardening” is defined based on an interview of scientists: it is seen primarily as tendency of dried wood to deform after re-sawing from larger cross-sections. This tendency after various drying schedules has been simulated by the use of FE program PEO which has been developed for analysis of moisture transport and stresses during drying. Also the draft CEN-standard method has been analysed.
