  1. 1. A Comparison between the Wickström Compartment Fire Model with Experiments and other Calculation Methods

    University essay from Luleå tekniska universitet/Byggkonstruktion och brand

    Author : Anna Pettersson; Carolina Puga Staffan; [2021]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : An Excel spreadsheet application has been developed for calculating pre-flashover compartment fire temperature according to the method described in the book ”Temperature Calculation in Fire Safety Engineering” written by Wickström 2016. Here called the Wickström Compartment Fire Model, WCFM, which is a model where the surrounding structure can be assumed either as lumped heat or as semi-infinite.

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Avdelningen för Konstruktionsteknik; Lunds universitet/Institutionen för byggvetenskaper

    Author : Albin Forsberg; Filip Farbäck; [2020]
    Keywords : timber concrete composite; TCC; floors; cross-laminated timber; CLT; structural behavior; design methods; Gamma method; Equivalent gamma method; Extended gamma method; RFEM; first natural frequency; serviceability limit state; ultimate limit state; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : På grund av den ökade miljö- och klimatmedvetenheten har övergången till förnybara material påskyndats, och detsamma gäller intresset för träbyggande. Med att bygga högt i trä kommer dock ett flertal konstruktionsmässiga utmaningar, där en av utmaningarna är dynamik på grund av träets låga egenvikt jämfört med andra mer konventionella byggnadsmaterial.

  3. 3. Acoustic performance of timber volume elements

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Teknisk akustik

    Author : Oliver Olsson; [2020]
    Keywords : Impact sound insulation; Air-borne sound insulation; Cross laminated timber; CLT; Timber Volume Element; Vibration Insulation.; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : The thesis investigates the acoustic performance of light weight timber constructions known as timber volume elements and vibration insulation methods employed in these. Common materials used in light weight timber floor constructions and different floor configurations consisting of these materials were also studied. READ MORE

  4. 4. 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

  5. 5. Model calibration of a wooden building block

    University essay from Linnéuniversitetet/Institutionen för bygg- och energiteknik (BE); Linnéuniversitetet/Institutionen för bygg- och energiteknik (BE); Linnéuniversitetet/Institutionen för bygg- och energiteknik (BE)

    Author : Ali Abdul Jabbar Karim; Johan Lessner; Mehrdad Moridnejad; [2013]
    Keywords : Wood; Dynamical behaviour; Finite element model; light weight assembly; Experimental modal analysis; Wooden;

    Abstract : Constructing multi floor buildings by light weight material have increased recently. There are many advantages of using light weight material, such as wood, for the environment. However, one of the deficiencies of lightweight material is the acoustic performance. READ MORE
