  1. 1. The hygrothermal inertia of massive timber connstructions

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Stéphane Hameury; KTH.; [2006]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; 1H MRI; Building simulation environment; Heat buffering capacity; Heavy timber construction; Indoor climate; In-situ measurement; Magnetic Resonance Imaging; TECHNOLOGY Civil engineering and architecture Building manufacturing engineering; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Samhällsbyggnadsteknik och arkitektur Byggproduktionsteknik;

    Abstract : The work presented in this Doctoral dissertation concerns the ability of heavy timber structures to passively reduce the fluctuations of the indoor temperature and of the indoor relative humidity, through the dynamic process of heat and moisture storage in wood. We make the hypothesis that the potential offered by the hygrothermal inertia of heavy timber structures is significant, and that it could provide a passive way of regulating the indoor climate.

  2. 2. Continuous improvement and experience feedback in off-site construction : timber-framed module prefabrication

    University dissertation from Luleå : Luleå tekniska universitet

    Author : John Meiling; Luleå tekniska universitet.; [2010]
    Keywords : Träbyggnad; Timber Structures; Byggproduktion; Construction Engineering and Management;

    Abstract : Continuous improvement implies an incremental, ongoing effort to improve products, services or processes. Some construction companies have chosen to face competition by adopting an off-site construction strategy, one form of which is timber-framed module prefabrication. READ MORE

  3. 3. Stress-laminated-timber bridge decks subjected to ultimate loads

    University dissertation from Chalmers University of Technology

    Author : Kristoffer Ekholm; Chalmers tekniska högskola.; Chalmers University of Technology.; [2011]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Konstruktionsmaterial; Construction materials; Konstruktionsteknik; Construction engineering; Stress-laminated timber; Timber bridges; Ultimate-load tests;

    Abstract : Stress-laminated-timber (SLT) bridge decks are a satisfactory alternative to conventional short-span bridges in terms of cost and performance. SLT decks are made from several deck laminations positioned side by side. READ MORE

  4. 4. Modular long-span timber structures a systematic framework for buildable construction

    University dissertation from Luleå : Luleå tekniska universitet

    Author : Anders Björnfot; Luleå tekniska universitet.; [2004]
    Keywords : Träbyggnad; Timber Structures;

    Abstract : One of the identified reasons for the low amount of timber construction in Sweden is a general lack of knowledge about timber engineering and how timber can be used to its full advantage. One way for increased timber construction is the development of a cost-efficient and easy to comprehend building system. READ MORE

  5. 5. Probabilistic System Effects in Timber Structures

    University dissertation from Division of Structural Engineering Lund Institute of Technology Lund University

    Author : Martin Hansson; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2005]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Building construction; Byggnadsteknik; Anläggningsteknik; Construction technology; first order reliability method; Monte Carlo simulation; system effect; sheathed parallel member system; structural timber; roof truss;

    Abstract : The main purpose of the performed research presented in this thesis is to increase the understanding of the effect of variability of strength properties on the reliability of timber structural systems. Compared to other structural materials such as steel and concrete, structural timber has a considerably higher variability of strength both within and between members. READ MORE
