Samenvatting

The two wooden cabinets of Jan van Mekeren that are located in Amerongen Castle show comparable wood damage; in particular large cracks in the cabinet doors are clearly noticeable. It is assumed that these cracks were caused by bad indoor climate conditions in the castle. Combined computational modelling of the indoor climate conditions in the castle and the hygroscopic and mechanical behaviour of the wood in the cabinet doors has been carried out in COMSOL to predict the damage potential of indoor climate variations to the doors. The preliminary results show that with COMSOL, the climate variations in the cabinet as a result of the indoor climate conditions in a room can be calculated. In addition, a prediction of deformation due to climate variations can be generated that complies with the visible damage. However, further investigation to the correct mechanical and hygroscopic properties of the materials in the cabinet is needed to acquire more accurate results.
