Natural building stones: Coefficient of thermal expansion (NT BUILD 479)

NT BUILD 479

  • This method describes a laboratory procedure for determining the coefficient of thermal expansion of natural building stones. The test samples are exposed to temperatures ranging from 20 °C to 70 C°. For each change of temperature, the longitudinal expansion is recorded.

Building materials, wood: Moisture content (NT BUILD 420)

NT BUILD 420

  • This Nordtest method describes a method for measuring the moisture content of wood. Since it utilizes wooden probes with built-in electrodes which are embedded in wooden parts of building constructions where they can be left, it is very suitable for measurements over longer periods.
