  1. 1. Life Cycle Assessment and comparison of the climate impact of structural members and floor systems constructed in concrete, steel and timber

    University essay from KTH/Byggnadsmaterial

    Author : Fredrik Rask; [2019]
    Keywords : Life Cycle Assessment; LCA; Environmental impact; Building materials; Steel; Timber; Concrete;

    Abstract : In this report the climate impact is determined for some basic structural elements made in steel,>mber and concrete. The aim is to compare the climate impact of these three building materials byquan>fying the emissions related to the produc>on and construc>on of some typical structures. 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. 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

  4. 4. 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

  5. 5. 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
