  1. 1. Study of the Bonding Properties for Timber – Glass Composite Beams : The influence of viscoelastic adhesives on the load-bearing capacity

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

    Author : Omid Mohammadianfar; Lambert Imanizabayo; [2018]
    Keywords : Glass-timber composite beams; long-term behavior; viscoelastic bondline; Numerical simulations finite element analysis ; Analytical solution Gamma method ;

    Abstract : The study of the influence of viscoelastic adhesives on timber-glass composite beams addresses the development of new and innovative load bearing structures. Hybrid timber-glass beams, comprising of timber flanges and a glass web, were considered. READ MORE

  2. 2. 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

  3. 3. The Environmental Potential of Hybrid Load Bearing Systems - A Life Cycle Assessment of a Skanska Residential Reference House

    University essay from Chalmers tekniska högskola/Institutionen för arkitektur och samhällsbyggnadsteknik

    Author : Arvid Brandt; Henrik Sonesson; [2017]
    Keywords : LCA; Life Cycle Assessment; GWP; Global Warming Potential; construction industry; residential building; CLT; concrete; hybrid structures;

    Abstract : Emissions from production activities in the Swedish construction industry accounts for 17 % of national greenhouse gas emissions, making reduction possibilities of large interest and importance. Concerning construction of new buildings large improvements have been made regarding energy efficiency, putting further emphasizes on the production phase. READ MORE

  4. 4. Finite-Element Simulations of Glulam Beams with Natural Cracks

    University essay from Blekinge Tekniska Högskola/Sektionen för ingenjörsvetenskap

    Author : Sepehr Rahili Khorasani; [2012]
    Keywords : Glulam beams; Fracture mechanics; XFEM; Natural crack; ABAQUS; VCCT.;

    Abstract : Abstract: Modeling and simulation of natural cracks and its propagation for glulam beams in numerical method frame work have been studied in this thesis. The aim of this study was to find out the influence of formed cracks on the Glulam beam load-carrying capacity. READ MORE

  5. 5. Vertical Displacements in a Medium-rise Timber Building : Limnologen in Växjö, Sweden

    University essay from Växjö universitet/Institutionen för teknik och design; Växjö universitet/Institutionen för teknik och design; Växjö universitet/Institutionen för teknik och design
