Abstract

Condition assessment and continuous monitoring of the existing timber structures have been gaining in importance in recent times. The global objective of sustainable development has been greatly directed toward preservation of the existing structures and protection of architectural heritage. Methods used for assessing condition of the existing timber structures are presented in the paper. The main emphasis is placed on the presentation of non-destructive and semi-destructive methods for frequently used timber structures. The methods are presented through the example of condition assessment of the Nikola Tesla Technical Museum in Zagreb.
