  1. 1. Dynamic Performance of a Tall Building to Earthquake Loading : Finding the optimum mass and stiffness

    University essay from KTH/Bro- och stålbyggnad

    Author : Andrés Alonso San Segundo; [2022]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : With the increasing cost of land, the development of ultra-high performance concrete, and the technological advancements in equipment and machinery, we are able to construct and refurbish skyscrapers like never before. How they are built, what materials they use, or what structural system defines them, all affect their dynamic response, which in the end is the combination of the stiffness and mass, two key parameters in engineering of tall buildings.

  2. 2. Preparations for photon external beam radiotherapy treatment planning of small animals

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Sjukhusfysikerutbildningen

    Author : Joanie Diha Guei; [2022]
    Keywords : Medicine and Health Sciences;

    Abstract : Introduction:The XenX is a small animal irradiation system that acquires high-resolution cone-beam tomography (CBCT) images of small animals and treats small animals with higher precision than medical linear accelerators. MuriSlice is a software for CBCT image reconstruction. READ MORE

  3. 3. Parametric optimization of reinforced concrete slabs subjected to punching shear

    University essay from KTH/Betongbyggnad

    Author : Sofia Thuresson; [2020]
    Keywords : Parametric design; Optimization; Punching shear; Concrete; Flat slab; Eurocode 2; Shear reinforcement; Genetic algorithm; Visual programming; Dynamo.; Parametrisk design; Optimering; Genomstansning; Betong; Pelardäck; Eurocode 2; Tvärkraftsarmering; Genetisk algoritm; Visuell programmering; Dynamo.;

    Abstract : The construction industry is currently developing and evolving towards more automated and optimized processes in the project design phase. One reason for this development is that computational power is becoming a more precise and accessible tool and its applications are multiplying daily. READ MORE

  4. 4. Punching shear in concrete flat slabs supported on slender edge steel columns

    University essay from KTH/Betongbyggnad

    Author : Pasha Jalal; Jose Andres Perez; [2020]
    Keywords : Punching shear; ATENA; FEA; precast slab; flat slab; top and foot plate.; Genomstansning; ATENA; FEA; plattbärlag; pelardäck; topp- och fotplåt.;

    Abstract : Punching shear is a failure mechanism caused by concentrated loads, creating a crack pattern that resembles a cone shape or piece of pie starting from the top surface of the slab and prolongs downwards. When the total shear force is greater than the shear resistance of the slab, it may eventually lead to punching shear failure. READ MORE

  5. 5. The effect of pre-stressing location on punching shear capacity of concrete flat slabs

    University essay from KTH/Betongbyggnad

    Author : Saeed Vosoughian; [2019]
    Keywords : Concrete flat slabs; Concrete damage plasticity model; Eurocode 2; Nonlinear finite element analysis; Punching capacity; Pre-stressing cables;

    Abstract :         Implementing pre-stressing cables is a viable option aiming at controlling deformation and cracking of concrete flat slabs in serviceability limit state. The pre-stressing cables also contribute to punching shear capacity of the slab when they are located in vicinity of the column. READ MORE
