  1. 1. Monitoring and Modelling of the Abiskojåkka Bridge

    University essay from Luleå tekniska universitet/Byggkonstruktion och brand

    Author : Kasper Furenstam; [2020]
    Keywords : Prestressed bridge; Abisko; Monitoring; thermal effects; FEM;

    Abstract : The infrastructure of today is getting older and problems caused by deterioration over time is affecting the service life of these structures. In Sweden most of the existing bridges were constructed 60 to 70 years ago, rising the need to determine the state of health of the bridges as the maintenance costs will increase heavily. READ MORE

  2. 2. Reinforcement Layout in Concrete Pile Foundations : A study based on non - linear finite element analysis

    University essay from KTH/Betongbyggnad

    Author : Mohammad Mustafa Angar; [2020]
    Keywords : Pile cap; Nonlinear finite element analysis; ATENA 3D; Reinforcement layout; Strut and tie method; Pålfundament; icke-linjära finita elementmodeller; strut and tie-metoden;

    Abstract : The main topic of this thesis concerns the behavior of concrete pile cap supported by four piles with two varying positions of longitudinal reinforcements. The positions include top of piles and bottom of the pile cap. For this purpose, non-linear finite element models of a pile cap are created using software ATENA 3D. READ MORE

    Abstract : The construction industry is currently developing and evolving towards more automated and optimized processes in the project design phase. One reason for this development is that computational power is becoming a more precise and accessible tool and its applications are multiplying daily. READ MORE

  5. 5. Building extension through additional CLT storeys

    University essay from Luleå tekniska universitet/Institutionen för teknikvetenskap och matematik

    Author : Charalampos Livas; [2020]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : In the last decade, the use of cross-laminated timber (CLT) panels as load bearing elements have become a usual solution for buildings and structures with an upward trend internationally. This is because CLT has brilliant physical and mechanical properties and it is also an eco-friendly and renewable material. READ MORE
