The aim of experimentation is to characterize the performances of glued laminatet timber components exposed to atmosferic agents, in the light of the concept of Life Cycle Cost, particularly emphasized in Italian new legislation on public works. In fact, it could be seen that the design of the construction details and the initial characteristics of glue laminated timber components, require a particular attention to avoid errors that may undermine the possibility to perform the structural functions for which, above all, this material is dedicated. The experimentation consisted of a series of test aimed to identify the performance of glued laminated timber beams taken in site, after work executed some years ago on a theatre built in Roman era, and to compare them with similarly manufactured new elements. The test performed were thermography, ultrasound, Wood-Pecker penetrometer, mechanical characterization. The rusult will be used to begin setting limits and conditions for outdoor use of glue laminated timber, and assume a reliable life cycle, and consequently identify the most appropriate maintenance strategy for LCC.
