  1. 1. High-performance and self-compacting concrete in house building. Field tests and theoretical studies of possibilities and difficulties

    Author : Markus Peterson; Avdelningen för Byggnadsmaterial; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Multi-storey residential buildings; Structural frames; SCC; Self-compacting concrete; High-performanceconcrete; HPC; Concrete; Building materials; Cast in-situ concrete;

    Abstract : Cast in-situ concrete is the most frequently used materials technology worldwide within production of structural frames in multi-storey residential buildings. In Sweden, this technology dominates the market but is challenged by other competitive production methods. READ MORE

  2. 2. Fibre-reinforced Concrete for Industrial Construction - a fracture mechanics approach to material testing and structural analysis

    Author : Ingemar Lövgren; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : in-situ cast; non-linear; self-compacting; fibre-reinforced; concrete;

    Abstract : ABSTRACTMore efficient and industrialised construction methods are both necessary for thecompetitiveness of in-situ concrete and essential if the construction industry is to moveforward. At present, the expenditure on labour (preparation and dismantling offormwork, reinforcing, and casting and finishing of concrete) almost equals the cost ofmaterial. READ MORE

  3. 3. In-situ concrete frameworks in multifamily buildings : Modelling and simulation of construction methods and activities

    Author : Robert Larsson; Avdelningen för Konstruktionsteknik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY;

    Abstract : In Sweden and elsewhere in the world the construction industry has encountered criticism due to its lower productivity gains in comparison to other industries. This is why continual improvement of processes and forms of cooperation are important, as is utilisation of technologies giving greater efficiencies. READ MORE

  4. 4. Cracking in concrete : crack prevention with air-cooling and crack distribution with steel fibre reinforcement

    Author : Patrik Groth; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Structural Engineering; Konstruktionsteknik;

    Abstract : This Licentiate Thesis consists of four parts. The first two parts, paper A and B, deal with air-cooling by means of embedded pipes in order to reduce thermal cracking in concrete structures. These two papers are submitted for publication to RILEM Journal; ‘Materials and Structures'. READ MORE

  5. 5. Product models for concrete structures : standards, applications and implementations

    Author : Anders Rönneblad; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Structural Engineering; Konstruktionsteknik;

    Abstract : The product model approach for the construction industry is fairly new subject field, especially the implementation of the result in the building process. The aim of the research and the contribution to the goal of better utilize processes is shortly described below. READ MORE
