  1. 1. Parametrized Finite Element Simulation of Multi-Storey Timber Structures

    University essay from Linnéuniversitetet/Institutionen för skog och träteknik (SOT)

    Author : Le Kuai; [2017]
    Keywords : wood; multi-story timber frame structure; finite element analysis; ABAQUS; simulation; Python script;

    Abstract : With the acceleration of global urbanization trends, more and more intentions are put on multi-storey buildings. As the world leading area of wood construction, European countries started the construction of multi-storey timber building for a decade ago. READ MORE

  2. 2. Stability analysis of a large span timber dome

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Avdelningen för Konstruktionsteknik

    Author : Markus Herrström; Gustav Fredriksson; [2017]
    Keywords : Timber; Glulam; Dome; Instability; Buckling; FEM; Non-Linear; Imperfection; Creep; Settlements; Geodesic; Kiewitt; Abaqus; Stability; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : The aim of this thesis is to study the feasibility of building a timber dome with a span of 300 metres, concerning elastic stability. The load-bearing members were modelled with the properties of glued laminated timber GL30c with the dimensions 0.8×1.6 m2. READ MORE

  3. 3. Testing of CLT-Concrete Composite decks

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Avdelningen för Konstruktionsteknik

    Author : Joakim Thilén; [2017]
    Keywords : Notch; Adhesive; Composite Decks; Deflection; Gamma-method; CLT; TCC; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : When massive timber decks are used in buildings the design is often regulated by serviceability limit state (SLS), mainly the vibration criteria. To decrease the risk for vibrations of a deck the bending stiffness needs to be increased. READ MORE

  5. 5. 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
