To clarify the contribution of mechanosorptive eﬀect and compliance evolution according to moisture content during adsorption under load creep tests on longitudinal spruce specimens in variable environment were performed. By comparing diﬀerent loading history we observe that creep increase during the ﬁrst adsorption (++ eﬀect) mostly results from the increase of compliance induced by higher moisture content. We also discuss the viscoelasticity and mechanosorptive interaction during creep.
