Common parametric model of sawn wood, geometry and finite element and physical parametric model pile sawn wood and its immediate airy environment was introduced. By the help of numerical simulation with Finite Element Method utilization the description of temperature distribution, dampness and stress in wood, in dependence on temperature and moisture distribution in airy environment of sawn wood kiln was included. Discussion about problem of design model, mesh refinement and definition boundary conditions was opened. Results of simulations make possible to propound the optimization of drying process. Direction of next investigation was outlined too.
