  1. 1. Timber Tower: 10 20 30

    University essay from KTH/Arkitektur

    Author : Arthur Salonen; [2018]
    Keywords : wood; tower;

    Abstract : Timber Tower: 10 20 30 offers a conceptual structural system for tall wooden buildings. The thesis has been a noumenal design process into the subject of timber towers, where the conceptual system is designed to work in accordance with engineering concepts for tall buildings. 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. Horizontal natural frequency in a 10 story building : A comparison between CLT and concrete using estimate calculations

    University essay from Umeå universitet/Institutionen för tillämpad fysik och elektronik

    Author : Jennifer Eriksson; [2018]
    Keywords : Horizontal natural frequency; tall timber building; timber structure; CLT; wind induced motion; tall CLT building; Horisontell egenfrekvens; hög träbyggnad; höga trähus; KL-trä; vindinducerade rörelser; högt KL-hus;

    Abstract : Tall slender buildings are easily set in motion by wind and earthquakes but by estimating the buildings horizontal natural frequencies in the design phase, these motions can be kept within acceptable boundaries. There are many parameters that decides the natural frequency of a building and it can therefore be difficult to calculate it. READ MORE

  4. 4. Dynamic analysis of high-rise timber buildings : A factorial experiment

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

    Author : Victor Karlberg; [2017]
    Keywords : Acceleration; comfort criteria; cross-laminated timber; factorial design; finite element analysis; natural frequency; vibrations; Acceleration; komfortkrav; korslimmat trä; faktorförsök; finita elementmetoden; naturlig egenfrekvens; vibrationer;

    Abstract : Today high-rise timber buildings are more popular than ever and designers all over the world have discovered the beneficial material properties of timber. In the middle of the 1990’s cross-laminated timber (CLT), was developed in Austria. CLT consists of laminated timber panels that are glued together to form a strong and flexible timber element.

  5. 5. Wind-induced Vibration Control of Tall Timber Buildings : Improving the dynamic response of a 22-storey timber building

    University essay from Linnéuniversitetet/Institutionen för byggteknik (BY)

    Author : Aiham Emil Al Haddad; [2016]
    Keywords : timber building; wood building; structural dynamics; damping; viscoelastic dampers; 22-storey timber; wind-induced vibrations; acceleration control; increased mass; increased stiffness; ISO 10137; ISO 6897; EKS 10;

    Abstract : Plans for construction of the tallest residential timber building has driven the Technical Research Institute of Sweden (SP), Linnaeus University, Växjö and more than ten interested companies to determine an appropriate design for the structure. This thesis presents a part of ongoing research regarding wind-induced vibration control to meet serviceability limit state (SLS) requirements. READ MORE
