  1. 1. Investigation of impact sound behaviour in light weight floor constructions - A market survey and finite element analysis

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Teknisk akustik; Lunds universitet/Institutionen för byggvetenskaper

    Author : Fanny Sandberg; [2016]
    Keywords : intermediate floor; acoustics; impact sound; höga trähus; bjälklag; akustik; Stegljud; Ljud; wood; wooden high rise building; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : In the last years, the interest in high-rise timber framed building has gone up resulting in an increased demand for good solutions regarding sound insulation. Due to the worldwide growing interest in environmental issues, it has become of greater importance for companies to find ways to take care of their residue, instead of throwing it away. READ MORE

  2. 2. Glued timber connections : Experimental and numerical study of tension behavior under various influencing parameters

    University essay from Linnéuniversitetet/Institutionen för maskinteknik (MT); Linnéuniversitetet/Institutionen för byggteknik (BY)

    Author : Shengmin Xu; Peiwei Tan; [2015]
    Keywords : Adhesive; dowel; timber; glued timber connections; finite element model; tension; ABAQUS;

    Abstract : Glued connections are relatively new in structural timber engineering. They are expected to show high connection stiffness as well as a high connection strength compared to mechanical connections e.g. dowel‐type connections. READ MORE

  4. 4. A New Bridge Proposal - Road Bridge with a Cross-Laminated Timber Slab

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Avdelningen för Konstruktionsteknik

    Author : Hannes Behrens; Per Benner; [2015]
    Keywords : timber bridge; steel bridge; short construction time; steel-concrete composite bridge; bridge design; Cross-laminated timber; CLT; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : In this thesis, a new bridge type is proposed. It is a steel bridge with a slab of cross-laminated timber elements. The bridge is intended for road traffic, and it has a span length of 26 m. It aims to be competitive when a short construction time is important. READ MORE

  5. 5. Influence of annual ring orientation on compression strength perpendicular to grain in glulam

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Byggnadsmekanik; Lunds universitet/Institutionen för byggvetenskaper

    Author : Philip Wallin; [2015]
    Keywords : Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : This thesis presents an analysis of glued laminated timber (glulam) when loaded in compression perpendicular to the grain. Both theoretical and experimental investigations have been carried out. The main focus was related to the growth ring patterns of the laminations and their influence on the stresses, the strains and the failure mode. READ MORE
