  1. 1. Experimental and computational analysis of the thermal degradation and the loss of strength of engineered wood-based panels

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Avdelningen för Brandteknik

    Author : Wickramasooriyage Devmini Kularatne; [2022]
    Keywords : Oriented strand board; thermal decomposition; mechanical degradation; heat transfer modelling; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : The current trends in the construction industry push toward materials that are more sustainable and environmentally friendlier than more traditional building materials such as concrete and steel. Timber and timber composites are one of the most popular materials on this list, due to both their mechanical strength and pleasant aesthetics. READ MORE

  2. 2. Global Analysis of a Tall Timber- Concrete Hybrid Structure Subjected to Wind Load : A Parametric Study of Different Hybrid Solutions

    University essay from KTH/Betongbyggnad

    Author : Clara Youssef; Meriam Basilious; [2022]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract :   Tall timber structures have received more attention in recent times as building withtimber contributes to environmental benefits in comparison to other building materials.Timber- concrete hybrid structures have become an alternative as previous investigationshave shown that building tall timber buildings implies complexities with regardsto sufficient stiffness and discomfort for occupants.

  3. 3. Analysis and Valorization of Bark from Silver Birch, Scots Pine, and Norway Spruce : Compositional analysis of bark from common Swedish trees in forestry, to optimize sustainability procedures and monetary value of bark residue

    University essay from Umeå universitet/Kemiska institutionen

    Author : Isak Lindbäck; [2022]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Silver birch, Scots pine, and Norway spruce are the three most common types of trees in Sweden and make up to 90% of standing volume in Swedish forests (Skogsstyrelsen 2015, 3). With millions of cubic meters of wood being cut down annually, bark and other residues that cannot be used for sawn timber is left over and burnt for energy. READ MORE

  4. 4. Fire Resistance Test of Cross Laminated Timber Joints

    University essay from Luleå tekniska universitet/Byggkonstruktion och brand

    Author : Oliver Cato; [2022]
    Keywords : CLT; Joints; Fire; resistance; Korslaminerat; trä; skarvar; Brand; motstånd;

    Abstract : The increased popularity of timber buildings has heightened the demand for more knowledge on how tomake these buildings safer. In many cases, parts of wooden constructions are prebuilt in factories that later are delivered to the building site. Transportation by road limits the sizes of the parts. READ MORE

  5. 5. Utilisation of hardwood in cross-laminated timber - A numerical study on vibrations in floors

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

    Author : Johannes Jonasson; Olle Karlsson; [2022]
    Keywords : hardwood; birch; beech; clt; cross-laminated timber; vibrations; floors; footfall; accelerations; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : Cross-laminated timber (CLT) is an engineered wood product consisting of several layers of laminations bonded together with adhesives. In contrast to heavier construction materials, timber and other lightweight building materials are more prone to serviceability issues due to vibrations. READ MORE
