  1. 1. A Life Cycle Assessment of the Environmental Impacts of Cross-Laminated Timber

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Byggproduktion

    Author : Emma Svensson; David Panojevic; [2019]
    Keywords : Life cycle assessment; Cross-laminated timber; Miljöbyggnad; DGNB; Environmental impact; End of life; Circular economy; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : Negative environmental impacts generated by new buildings and the built environment needs to be reduced in order to contribute to mitigation of anthropogenic global warming. Sustainable building certifications such as Miljöbyggnad and DGNB was introduced as a measure to transition into more sustainable buildings. READ MORE

  2. 2. 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.

  3. 3. Kalkylmodell för produkter inom korslimmat trä : fallstudie inom ett träindustriellt företag

    University essay from SLU/Dept. of Forest Economics

    Author : Simon Andersson; [2019]
    Keywords : aktivitetsbaserad kalkyl; CLT; kalkylmodell; korslimmat trä; kostnadsfördelning; träbyggande; acitivity based costing;

    Abstract : Byggandet i Sverige står för 20 % av landets utsläpp av växthusgaser. För att minska utsläppen krävs nya byggnadstekniker där byggnader med stomme byggd av korslimmat trä (KL-trä) är ett bra alternativ. Flera fabriker för korslimmat trä har nyligen byggts och kommer att byggas i Sverige det kommande året. READ MORE

  4. 4. Efficiency of floating floors on CLT or concrete plate in the low frequency region

    University essay from Chalmers tekniska högskola/Institutionen för bygg- och miljöteknik

    Author : Anton Hermansson; [2018]
    Keywords : Building acoustics; Impact sound insulation; Floating floor; Concrete; Cross laminated timber;

    Abstract : In order to fulfil requirements regarding impact sound insulation between two ver-tically adjacent rooms, a floating floor construction is a commonly used technique. However the understanding of the acoustical performance of the floor construction at low frequencies is limited. READ MORE

  5. 5. Moisture risks with CLT-panels subjected to outdoor climate during construction : focus on mould and wetting processes

    University essay from KTH/Byggteknik och design; KTH/Byggteknik och design

    Author : Johan Öberg; Erik Wiege; [2018]
    Keywords : moisture; CLT; massive wood; mould; WUFI; drying; construction; weather protection. best practice; fukt; KL-trä; massivt trä; mögel; WUFI; torkning; konstruktion; väderskydd; best practice;

    Abstract : When going through relevant research, moisture safety guidelines and talking to builders, moisture experts and architects it is clear - and not surprising - that water and wood make no easy combination. The experiences from building with cross laminated timber (CLT) differ from building sites and there are good and bad examples building without weather protection. READ MORE
