  1. 1. Optimized design of a load transfer concrete slab

    University essay from KTH/Betongbyggnad

    Author : Jonna Tattari; [2022]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Hybrid buildings, designed for multi-use occupancies, require a different arrangement of supporting structures at each level of the support functionality. In these types of buildings, the structural model of a building is discontinuous, and therefore new, non-vertical, load paths need to be formed allowing the vertical load to transfer to the foundations.

  2. 2. Influence of load distribution on trough bridges

    University essay from Luleå tekniska universitet/Institutionen för samhällsbyggnad och naturresurser

    Author : Jacob Gustafsson; [2021]
    Keywords : Bridge; Trough bridge; Concrete; Load distribution; Ballast;

    Abstract : There are approximately 4000 railway bridges in Sweden and a common construction type is the short span concrete trough bridge. With the current standards the load distribution through ballast is assumed to be uniformly distributed with a distribution slope of 2:1 according to the Swedish Administration of Transport or 4:1 according to Eurocode 1.

  3. 3. Design Automation of Concrete Slab Bridges and its Application on Set-based Structural Design

    University essay from KTH/Bro- och stålbyggnad

    Author : Haitian Xia; [2021]
    Keywords : concrete slab bridge; automation design; finite element analysis; set-based design;

    Abstract : The presented thesis describes the development of an automation design procedure for structural design of concrete slab bridges and how it can be used to conduct a set-based structural design. The automation procedure integrated finite element modelling, analysis and structural related verification (verifications in geometry, ULS and SLS) together and realised automatic implementation of the two processes.

  4. 4. Modeling of moisture-induced deformations and stresses in cross-laminated timber and timber-concrete composite floors

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

    Author : Marcus Johansson; [2021]
    Keywords : abaqus; numerical modeling; moisture content; relative humidity; cross-laminated timber; timber-concrete composite; finite element; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : Korslimmat trä är ett tämligen nytt material, bestående av korslagda lager av brädor. Produkten tillåter nya byggmetoder och kan ses som ett grönare alternativ till stål och betong. Dess uppbyggnad gör det mer robust och mindre beroende av träets varierande egenskaper för olika geometriska dimensioner. READ MORE

  5. 5. Stability of building structures using NLFEA including second order effects : Applications with the software ATENA-GiD

    University essay from KTH/Betongbyggnad

    Author : Alexandros Petkoglou; [2021]
    Keywords : Non-linear analysis; second order effects; prefabricated buildings; ATENA; GiD; slip connection; Icke-linjär analys; andra ordnings effekter; förtillverkade byggnader; prefabricerade byggnader; ATENA; GiD; glidkoppling;

    Abstract : In Sweden, prefabrication in the construction industry is a very common system. In prefabricated structures, there are various kinds of connections and generally many hinged connections. Therefore, it is of high interest to study the behavior of the prefabricated buildings in relation to the connections. READ MORE
