  1. 1. Study of the Bonding Properties for Timber – Glass Composite Beams : The influence of viscoelastic adhesives on the load-bearing capacity

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

    Author : Omid Mohammadianfar; Lambert Imanizabayo; [2018]
    Keywords : Glass-timber composite beams; long-term behavior; viscoelastic bondline; Numerical simulations finite element analysis ; Analytical solution Gamma method ;

    Abstract : The study of the influence of viscoelastic adhesives on timber-glass composite beams addresses the development of new and innovative load bearing structures. Hybrid timber-glass beams, comprising of timber flanges and a glass web, were considered. 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. Moisture-induced crack development in timber beams : a parametric study performed on dowelled timber connections

    University essay from Linnéuniversitetet/Institutionen för byggteknik (BY)

    Author : Tadios Sisay Habite; [2017]
    Keywords : Moisture; Crack; Extended finite element; Parametric study;

    Abstract : A problem has been observed by many researchers regarding the cracks caused mainly by moisture variation in timber structures. However, this effect has been neglected over the past decades. READ MORE

  4. 4. 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

  5. 5. Combined glued laminated timber using hardwood and softwood lamellas

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

    Author : Aishwarya Muraleedharan; Stefan Markus Reiterer; [2016]
    Keywords : Glued-laminated-timber; GLT; hardwood; oak; combined glulam;

    Abstract : In this thesis, the behaviour of glued laminated timber combined with hardwood and softwood lamallae is investigated. The influence of hardwood in the tension and compression zone, in terms of strength and stiffness is evaluated. READ MORE
