The lower values of the allowable compressive stresses in direction perpendicular to the grains (bearing strength of wood) have bean obtained in the experimental tests on the real models ehan obtained theoretically in accordance with the PN-EN 1995- 1-1:2010. This issue applies to all types of timber frame buildings where spruce wood (Picea Abies) is used. Different modes of failure due to compression perpendicular to the grain than it results from the assumptions of the standard, especially when taking into account the surface cooperating in the transfer of loads from the wall posts to the sill plates was also observed.
