  1. 1. Parametric design and optimization of steel and timber truss structures : Development of a workflow for design and optimization processes in Grasshopper 3D environment

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

    Keywords : Parametric design; Optimization; Parametric workflow; Steel; Timber; Truss; Grasshopper 3D; Karamba 3D; Galapagos; GH Python; Glulam; Finite Element Analysis;

    Abstract : The demand for complex structures and the urge to perform more detailed structural analyses in an early stage of the project design phase has increased the use of parametric design in the construction sector, especially among architects and structural engineers. Also, an increasing demand for sustainable structures is creating pressure on engineers and architects to design optimized structures that consume as little resources as possible. READ MORE

  2. 2. Temperature distribution in air tight cavities of steel framed modular buildings when exposed to fire

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

    Author : Elin Bergroth; Greta Torstensson; [2019]
    Keywords : Cavities; fire furnace; fire test; modular building; steel; TASEF; Brandugn; brandtest; hålrum; modulbyggnader; stål; TASEF;

    Abstract : A common way to construct large buildings is by assemble prefabricated modules around a load bearing steel construction. However, if a fire occurs these buildings can be subject to a rapid fire spread due to its cellular nature. READ MORE

  3. 3. Design of wind turbine blades with respect to stability

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Byggnadsmekanik

    Author : Oskar Lindkvist; Victor Nicolausson; [2019]
    Keywords : FEM; Buckling; Stability; Wind turbine blades; Steel.; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : In the 21st century, wind power has emerged as a strong candidate in fulfilling societies goals of achieving carbon-free energy energy production. Windpower has evolved along with other technological developments, giving rise to larger turbines, but with the overall design trend remaining largely unchanged. READ MORE

  4. 4. Steel vs Composite, Heavy vs light : Sustainability in construction - a case study investigating two concrete form work systems uning a MCDMmethod

    University essay from Högskolan i Halmstad/Akademin för ekonomi, teknik och naturvetenskap; Högskolan i Halmstad/Akademin för ekonomi, teknik och naturvetenskap

    Author : johan Glimbeck; Olle Ingemarsson; [2019]
    Keywords : sustainability; sustainable; Sustainability in construction; case study; concrete; MCDM;

    Abstract : This Bachelor thesisis  a  comparison  of  two  different  concrete  forms  viewed  from  a sustainable perspective by using a Multi Criteria Decision Making(MCDM)method. Sustainability  is  a  broad  concept,  often  degraded  in threepartswhich  are  financial-,environmental-and  socialsustainability. READ MORE

  5. 5. Design of Ultra High Performance Fibre Reinforced Concrete Bridges : A Comparative Study to Conventional Concrete Bridges

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

    Author : Viktor Eriksson; [2019]
    Keywords : Bridge design; CO2 emissions; Mechanical properties and behaviour; Straight short steel fibres; UHPC; UHPFRC; Bro dimensionering; CO2 utsläpp; Korta raka stålfibrer; Mekaniska egenskaper och beteende; UHPC; UHPFRC;

    Abstract : The use of Ultra High Performance Fibre Reinforced Concrete (UHPFRC) in the construction industry started in the 1990s and has since then been used for bridges all over the world. The mechanical properties and the dense matrix result in lower material usage and superior durability compared to conventional concrete, but the implementation of UHPFRC in the Swedish industry has been delayed.
