The resistance parameters of timber material structures decrease with time, depending on the type of load and timber classes. Strength and Modulus of Elasticity reduction effects, referred to as creeprupture effects, due to long term loading at high stress ratio levels are known for many materials. Timber materials are highly affected by this reduction in strength and deflection with duration of load. Characteristic values of load duration and deformation factors are calibrated by means of using probabilistic methods. The reliability is estimated by means of using representative short-and long-term limit states. Time variant reliability aspects are taken into account using a simple representative limit state with time variant strength and simulation of whole life time load processes. The parameters in these models are fitted by the Maximum Likelihood Methods using the data relevant for Polish structural timber . Based on Polish snow data over 45 years from mountain zones in: Zakopane – Tatra, Świeradów – Karkonosze, Lesko – Bieszczady, the snow load process parameters have been estimated. The reliability is evaluated using representative short – and long –term limit states. The deformation factor kdef is obtained using the probabilistic model.
