  1. 1. Is there a win for conservation, livelihoods and governance? : the implications of Broussonetia papyrifera as an ecological resource substitute: a field study in Uganda

    University essay from SLU/Dept. of Urban and Rural Development

    Author : Yasmin Stoderegger; [2018]
    Keywords : biodiversity; Broussonetia papyrifera; Mabira Central Forest Reserve; forest regeneration; community involvement; resource substitution;

    Abstract : Wood extraction and invasive species are commonly perceived as harmful for ecosystem services and detrimental for conservation efforts. However, they can also be beneficial for forests as well as for local communities. Interactions among economic, institutional and ecological factors may in some cases turn these impacts on their head. READ MORE

  2. 2. Through The Archipelago

    University essay from KTH/Arkitektur

    Author : Michal Kotvan; [2018]
    Keywords : naturum; archipelago; water; kayaking; Stockholm; Fejan; island; timber; nature; journey;

    Abstract : Stockholm archipelago has over the centuries been fairly unknown and anonymous place for many. Unless you were involved in fishing or trade you did not know much about this sea landscape. Besides its commercial value it had also a military significance for a long period. READ MORE

  3. 3. Parameterized Modelling of Global Structural Behaviour of Modular Based Two Storey Timber Structure

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

    Author : Daudi Salezi Augustino; Bernard Adjei Antwi-Afari; [2018]
    Keywords : Modular-based timber structure; FE-simulations; parameterized modelling; spring stiffness; friction; angle brackets and uplift plates;

    Abstract : The global stiffness behaviour of modular-based two storey timber structures was studied under prescribed horizontal displacements at the upper corners of the volume modules. To be able to study this behaviour, a numerical finite element model was created in Abaqus. READ MORE

  4. 4. Delamination of Cross-laminated timber and its impact on fire development | Focusing on different types of adhesives

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Avdelningen för Brandteknik

    Author : Eric Johansson; Anton Svenningsson; [2018]
    Keywords : CLT; cross-laminated timber; X-lam; delamination; engineered timber; adhesive; glue; tall timber buildings; timber load-bearing structures; charring rate; NFPA; Paramteric fires; standard testing furnace; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : In the recent decade, the interest of building taller all-timber structures using engineered timber materials such as cross-laminated timber (CLT) has increased substantially. On the other hand, there’s also a significant resistance and fear concerning the fire safety of buildings with wood-based load-bearing structures. READ MORE

  5. 5. 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
