  1. 1. Numerical and experimental dynamic analyses of the Vega Pedestrian bridge including seasonal effects

    University essay from KTH/Bro- och stålbyggnad

    Author : John Hallak Neilson; [2019]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : As timber structures become increasingly relevant and sought after – since they enable improvements in building time while reducing a structure’s life cycle impacts – streamlining their design can have meaningful economic and environmental implications.For timber footbridges, its design is frequently governed by serviceability criteria linked to excessive vibrations.

  2. 2. Life Cycle Assessment and comparison of the climate impact of structural members and floor systems constructed in concrete, steel and timber

    University essay from KTH/Byggnadsmaterial

    Author : Fredrik Rask; [2019]
    Keywords : Life Cycle Assessment; LCA; Environmental impact; Building materials; Steel; Timber; Concrete;

    Abstract : In this report the climate impact is determined for some basic structural elements made in steel,>mber and concrete. The aim is to compare the climate impact of these three building materials byquan>fying the emissions related to the produc>on and construc>on of some typical structures. READ MORE

  4. 4. A Generative Design of TimberStructures According to Eurocode : Development of a Parametric Model in Grasshopper

    University essay from KTH/Bro- och stålbyggnad; KTH/Bro- och stålbyggnad

    Author : NICOLINA ANDRÉN JAKOBSSON; SIMON BOHMAN; [2019]
    Keywords : Parametric design; Timber; Optimization; Generative Design; Glulam; Grasshopper; Python i;

    Abstract : The interest of timber structures has in recent years increased, primarily due tothe environmental benets of timber. This has created an increased demand forstructural engineers with timber expertise. At the same time the concept of structuralparametric design have become more popular. READ MORE

  5. 5. Modelling cross-laminated timber floors in dynamic analysis - Eigenfrequency prediction

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

    Author : Johannes Wetterholt; [2019]
    Keywords : finite element method; FEM; dynamic analysis; Eigenfrequency; CLT; cross-laminated timber; cross-laminated timber floors; wooden floors; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : In the late 1990s cross-laminated timber (CLT) was developed. The development of CLT was a project aimed to produce a structural product that could compete with the concrete industry and contribute to a reduced effect on the environment, due to the low environmental impact of timber in relation to other building materials.
