  1. 1. A Study of the Viability of Cross Laminated Timber for Residential Construction

    University essay from KTH/Byggvetenskap

    Author : Max Smyth; [2018]
    Keywords : CLT; cross laminated timber; timber; building; residential; construction; sustainability; environment;

    Abstract : This report presents an overview into cross laminated timber (CLT) as a construction material and how it compares to traditional methods of construction. CLT is also examined in the context of a move to off-site manufacturing (OSM) and a greater emphasis on sustainability in the construction sector. READ MORE

  2. 2. Shadow effects in open cross-sections : An analysis of steel temperatures with COMSOL Multiphysics, TASEF and Eurocode

    University essay from Luleå tekniska universitet/Byggkonstruktion och brand

    Author : Lucas Andersson; [2018]
    Keywords : Shadow effects; Construction; Fire; COMSOL; TASEF; EUROCODE; Steel; Thermal radiation; Separated boundary conditions;

    Abstract : Steel is a material commonly used in various constructions such as high-rise buildings, sport arenas, ships etc. Steel is a versatile building material due to its isotropic characteristics, e.g. both high tensile- and compressive strength. READ MORE

  3. 3. 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

  4. 4. Planning for Efficiency at Karlatornet

    University essay from Chalmers tekniska högskola/Institutionen för bygg- och miljöteknik

    Author : Oskar Andersson; Simon Månsson; [2017]
    Keywords : Lean construction; High-rise construction; Push and pull; Location-based planning; Just in time; 4D BIM; and Virtual design and construction.;

    Abstract : Construction of high-rise constructions has during past decades seen an incrementalincrease, which is now also evident in the Swedish market with the forthcomingconstruction of Karlatornet at Lindholmen in Gothenburg. When constructing high-riseconstructions new constraints are imposed, connected to height and limited space ateach floor, which calls for planning methods adapted for the challenges that emerges.

  5. 5. Global Analysis and design of a complex slanted High-Rise Building with Tube Mega Frame

    University essay from KTH/Betongbyggnad; KTH/Betongbyggnad

    Author : Hamzah Al-Nassrawi; Grigorios Tsamis; [2017]
    Keywords : Tubed Mega Frame; Tall Buildings; Inclined structures; Structural Analysis; ETABs.; Tubed Mega Frame; Höga byggnader; Lutande strukturer; Strukturell analys; ETABS;

    Abstract : The need for tall buildings will increase in the future and new building techniques will emerge to full fill that need. Tyrénshas developed a new structural system called Tube Mega Frame where the major loads are transferred to the ground through big columns located in the perimeter of the building. READ MORE
