  1. 1. Performance of joints for glued laminated timber exposed to the ISO fire temperature curve

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Avdelningen för Brandteknik

    Author : Jesus Gil; [2021]
    Keywords : Glued laminated Timber; Structural fire engineering; Fire performance; standard ISO fire curve; Joints; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : As society becomes more ecologically conscious there is a push toward the use of materials with a smaller environmental burden, one of these materials is glulam (GLT), which has gained a lot of traction in recent years not only for ecological reasons but for its ease in manufacture, transport, noise dampening, etc. The focus of this project was to evaluate the influence of different joint configurations on the fire performance of glulam members.

  2. 2. Expressing ecosystem model output and Swedish forestry goals with composite indictors

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap

    Author : Nicolas Tarasewicz; [2021]
    Keywords : Physical Geography; Ecosystem Analysis; forest management; multifunctionality; LPJ-GUESS; ecosystem services; composite indicator; climate change; biodiversity; SDGs; Sweden; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : Forest ecosystems provide a wide range of services necessary for maintaining environmental health and human well-being. Ecosystem models help inform how various management strategies respond in different regions to changing climate conditions. READ MORE

  3. 3. The impact of connection stiffness on the global structural behavior in a CLT building : A combined experimental-numerical study

    University essay from Linnéuniversitetet/Institutionen för byggteknik (BY); Linnéuniversitetet/Institutionen för byggteknik (BY)

    Author : Jenny Abrahamsson; Filip la Fleur; [2021]
    Keywords : CLT; Cross Laminated Timber; Connection; Rotational Stiffness; Moment Capacity; Modelling; FEM.;

    Abstract : Cross Laminated Timber (CLT) has in recent years become a more important building material. This means that the demand for accurate calculation methods in building standards such as Eurocode 5 has increased. There is limited knowledge about the connections in CLT buildings which is an important part of a CLT structure. READ MORE

  4. 4. Operational modal analysis and finite element modeling of a low-rise timber building

    University essay from Linnéuniversitetet/Institutionen för byggteknik (BY); Linnéuniversitetet/Institutionen för byggteknik (BY)

    Author : Viktor Petersson; Andreas Svanberg; [2021]
    Keywords : Timber structure; Dynamic behavior; Operational modal analysis; FE-modeling; Mode shape; Natural frequency.; Träbyggnad; Dynamiskt beteende; Operational modal analysis; FE-modellering; Egenmod; Egenfrekvens.;

    Abstract : Timber is a building material that is becoming more common and of interest for use in high-rise buildings. One of the reasons is that timber requires less energy input for the manufacturing process of the material compared to non-wood based materials. READ MORE

  5. 5. FE modeling of glulam beams with mechanical slotted-in steel plate connections.

    University essay from Linnéuniversitetet/Institutionen för byggteknik (BY)

    Author : Musaab Mahjoub; [2021]
    Keywords : Timber joints; Slotted-in steel plate connections; Python scripting; FEM; Abaqus.;

    Abstract : The mechanical behavior of timber beams with a slotted-in steel plate is studied by creating anumerical model that can simulate the global bending behavior and the load carrying capacity aswell as the nonlinear plastic fastener force distribution. Experimental results from Material TestingInstitute (MPA), University of Stuttgart were compared with simulation results done at LinnaeusUniversity. READ MORE
