  1. 1. 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

  2. 2. Delamination of Cross-laminated timber and its impact on fire development | Focusing on different types of adhesives

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Avdelningen för Brandteknik

    Author : Eric Johansson; Anton Svenningsson; [2018]
    Keywords : CLT; cross-laminated timber; X-lam; delamination; engineered timber; adhesive; glue; tall timber buildings; timber load-bearing structures; charring rate; NFPA; Paramteric fires; standard testing furnace; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : In the recent decade, the interest of building taller all-timber structures using engineered timber materials such as cross-laminated timber (CLT) has increased substantially. On the other hand, there’s also a significant resistance and fear concerning the fire safety of buildings with wood-based load-bearing structures. READ MORE

  3. 3. Temperature distribution and charring penetrations in timber assemblies exposed to parametric fire curves : Comparisons between tests and TASEF predictions

    University essay from Luleå tekniska universitet/Byggkonstruktion och brand; Luleå tekniska universitet/Byggkonstruktion och brand

    Author : Isac Andersson; Niklas Ek; [2017]
    Keywords : TASEF; Delamination; Timber beams; Parametric fire curves; Fire tests; Charring; Eurocode; TASEF; Delaminering; Träbalkar; Parametriska brandkurvor; Brandtester; Förkolning; Eurocode;

    Abstract : Four furnace tests have been performed using two different parametric fire curves and the results are compared with computer simulations and Eurocode calculations. What differentiates the parametric fire curve from other fire curves is in particular the cooling phase, something that has proven to be hard to model for timber structures. READ MORE

  4. 4. Temperature distribution and charring penetrations in timber assemblies exposed to parametric fire curves : Comparisons between tests and TASEF predictions

    University essay from Luleå tekniska universitet/Byggkonstruktion och brand; Luleå tekniska universitet/Byggkonstruktion och brand

    Author : Niklas Ek; Isac Andersson; [2017]
    Keywords : Fire; Delamination; Parametric fire curve; TASEF; Eurocode; Timber; Brand; Delaminering; Parametrisk brandkurva; TASEF; Eurocode; Trä;

    Abstract : Four furnace tests have been performed using two different parametric fire curves and the results are compared with computer simulations and Eurocode calculations. What differentiates the parametric fire curve from other fire curves is in particular the cooling phase, something that has proven to be hard to model for timber structures. READ MORE

  5. 5. Performance of cavity barriers exposed to fire : A model scale test

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

    Author : Sara Gustafsson; Stina Jonsson; [2017]
    Keywords : Cavity barriers; Model scale test; timber; constructions; fire spread; glowing combustion; smouldering; cavities;

    Abstract : To build multi story buildings out of timber is of a common interest in the building sector. Timber as a building material has many profits, such as the low cost, the availability and the ability to recycle it, the low carbon footprint and the workability. READ MORE
