  1. 1. Delamination of Cross-laminated timber and its impact on fire development | Focusing on different types of adhesives

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Avdelningen för Brandteknik

    Author : Eric Johansson; Anton Svenningsson; [2018]
    Keywords : CLT; cross-laminated timber; X-lam; delamination; engineered timber; adhesive; glue; tall timber buildings; timber load-bearing structures; charring rate; NFPA; Paramteric fires; standard testing furnace; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : In the recent decade, the interest of building taller all-timber structures using engineered timber materials such as cross-laminated timber (CLT) has increased substantially. On the other hand, there’s also a significant resistance and fear concerning the fire safety of buildings with wood-based load-bearing structures. READ MORE

  2. 2. Temperature distribution and charring penetrations in timber assemblies exposed to parametric fire curves : Comparisons between tests and TASEF predictions

    University essay from Luleå tekniska universitet/Byggkonstruktion och brand; Luleå tekniska universitet/Byggkonstruktion och brand

    Author : Isac Andersson; Niklas Ek; [2017]
    Keywords : TASEF; Delamination; Timber beams; Parametric fire curves; Fire tests; Charring; Eurocode; TASEF; Delaminering; Träbalkar; Parametriska brandkurvor; Brandtester; Förkolning; Eurocode;

    Abstract : Four furnace tests have been performed using two different parametric fire curves and the results are compared with computer simulations and Eurocode calculations. What differentiates the parametric fire curve from other fire curves is in particular the cooling phase, something that has proven to be hard to model for timber structures. READ MORE

  3. 3. Temperature distribution and charring penetrations in timber assemblies exposed to parametric fire curves : Comparisons between tests and TASEF predictions

    University essay from Luleå tekniska universitet/Byggkonstruktion och brand; Luleå tekniska universitet/Byggkonstruktion och brand

    Author : Niklas Ek; Isac Andersson; [2017]
    Keywords : Fire; Delamination; Parametric fire curve; TASEF; Eurocode; Timber; Brand; Delaminering; Parametrisk brandkurva; TASEF; Eurocode; Trä;

    Abstract : Four furnace tests have been performed using two different parametric fire curves and the results are compared with computer simulations and Eurocode calculations. What differentiates the parametric fire curve from other fire curves is in particular the cooling phase, something that has proven to be hard to model for timber structures. READ MORE

  4. 4. Experimental Fire Study of Expanded Polystyrene Insulation in Concrete and Lightweight Concrete Wall Constructions

    University essay from Luleå tekniska universitet/Institutionen för samhällsbyggnad och naturresurser

    Author : Jacob Nellgård; [2017]
    Keywords : EPS; Expanded Polystyrene; Concrete; Lightweight Concrete; Vertical Firespread;

    Abstract : In today’s building industry creating and finding a cheaper and more efficient way of construction with the same standards is the primary goal. The necessity in testing the constructions in different scenarios is of highest interest, primarily in saving future lives but also in the residual value for the insurance point of view. READ MORE

  5. 5. The inter- and intra-specific variability of charcoal traits in boreal ecosystems

    University essay from SLU/Dept. of Forest Ecology and Management

    Author : Sophie Charlotte Casetou; [2012]
    Keywords : Charcoal traits; Sorbus aucuparia; Betula pendula; Pinus sylvestris; Fire conditions; Interaction effects;

    Abstract : Wildfire-produced charcoal has been shown to influence key soil ecological processes. However, few studies have considered the role of interacting variables in describing the wide variability of charcoal ecological traits under natural und semi-natural conditions. READ MORE
