    University essay from KTH/Betongbyggnad

    Author : Angelos Lazaris; [2019]
    Keywords : Earthquakes; seismic analysis; retrofitting; pushover analysis; concrete building; steel bracing; fibre reinforced plastic;

    Abstract : Earthquakes are one of the biggest problems in civil engineering all over the world. Due to earthquakes, great disasters in cities with collapsed structures and human losses have been caused. READ MORE

  2. 2. Vibrations in residential timber floors : A comparison between the current and the revised Eurocode 5

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

    Author : Whokko Schirén; Trixie Swahn; [2019]
    Keywords : Vibration; Eurocode 5; Floor design method; Timber floor construction; Sensitivity study; Parametric study;

    Abstract : The European standard Eurocode 5, a design method for timber structures,is currently under revision. In this study the draft for a reviseddesign method for vibrations in timber floors was compared to the currentmethod. READ MORE

  3. 3. Computational modeling strategy of steel connections

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

    Author : Carl-Michael Bjälkensäter; Carl Holmgren; [2019]
    Keywords : FEM; steel; connection; joint; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : When designing large complex steel structures numerical calculation methods are always used to some extent. The simulation technology of today is advanced and can with proper modeling technique provide detailed analyses which captures the structural response accurately. READ MORE

  4. 4. Comparing a full scale test with FDS, FireFOAM, McCaffrey & Eurocode

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

    Author : Erik Edin; Mattias Ström; [2019]
    Keywords : FDS; FireFOAM; OpenFOAM; Performance-Based Design; Localized fire.;

    Abstract : In the rapidly growing field of CFD-calculations (Computational Fluid Dynamics), companies and organizations are bringing forth new tools, tools that display an image of a given fire scenario. These tools are developed because they provide time efficiency as well as a sustainable economic approach. READ MORE

  5. 5. Non-uniformly distributed compression perpendicular to the grain in steel-CLT connections : Experimental and Numerical Analysis of bearing capacity and displacement behaviour

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

    Author : Noah Ncube; Stephen Sabaa; [2019]
    Keywords : Compression; Perpendicular to the Grain; Cross-Laminated Timber CLT ; Connection; Non-uniformly distributed; Finite element; Load configuration factor;

    Abstract : Previous studies have mainly focused on the behaviour of timber under uniformly distributed compression perpendicular to the grain (CPG) loads. However, there are many practical applications in which timber is loaded by non-uniformly distributed CPG loads. READ MORE
