  1. 1. FRCM-Composites for Strengthening Concrete Walls with Openings : Experimental and Numerical Analysis

    Author : Cristian Sabau; Björn Täljsten; Thomas Blanksvärd; Gabriel Sas; Cosmin Popescu; Thanasis C. Triantafillou; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; FRCM; reinforced concrete; walls; openings; strenghtening; Structural Engineering; Konstruktionsteknik;

    Abstract : Upgrading existing buildings to new functional requirements may require new openings that can weaken the structure, prompting the need for strengthening. In such cases, traditional strengthening solutions, such as creating a reinforced concrete or steel frame around the opening, imply long-term restrictions in the use of the structure. READ MORE

  2. 2. Arrangement Design Studies : the introduction of the digital wall in domestic environments

    Author : Morteza Abdipour; Erik Stolterman; Mikael Wiberg; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; Digital Walls; Large Displays; Ambient Display Environments; Arrangement; Domestic Environments; Design Research; Research Through Design; Design Studies; Design Research Lab; Constructive Design Research; Participatory Design; User-centered Design; industrial design; industridesign;

    Abstract : This research focuses on the emergence of 'digital walls' that can project images onto almost all or even the entirety of interior (and perhaps exterior) walls, and what implications this might have for how we arrange our rooms. It demonstrates the arrangement, i.e. READ MORE

  3. 3. Experimental characterization and numerical modeling of compression perpendicular to the grain in wood and cross-laminated timber

    Author : Shaheda T. Akter; Thomas K. Bader; Erik Serrano; Jan Oscarsson; Reinhard Brandner; Linnéuniversitetet; []
    Keywords : rolling shear; biaxial testing; stress combination; RT-plane; moisture influence; rolling shear creep; digital image correlation; strain field; CLT connection; rotational stiffness; rullskjuvning; biaxiell undersökning; spänningskombination; RT-plan; fuktpåverkan; krypning vid rullskjuving; digital bildkorrelation; töjningsfält; KLTanslutning; rotationsstyvhet; Byggteknik; Civil engineering;

    Abstract : Compression perpendicular to the grain (CPG) of wood is a typical loading situation in timber structures. It has been an extensively studied research topic for decades, due to the highly ductile behavior of wood under such loading, the large variations in mechanical properties, and the relevance of these properties in structural design.

  4. 4. CFRP Strengthening of Cut-Out Openings in Concrete Walls – Analysis and Laboratory Tests

    Author : Cosmin Popescu; Björn Täljsten; Gabriel Sas; Thomas Blanksvärd; Stijn Matthys; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Structural Engineering; Konstruktionsteknik;

    Abstract : Redesigning buildings to improve their space efficiency and allow changes in use is often essential during their service lives to comply with shifts in living standards and functional demands.This may require the introduction of new openings in elements such as beams, walls, and slabs,which inevitably reduces their structural performance and hence requires repair or strengthening.

  5. 5. Management of Ischemia and Brain Death-Associated Injuries in Porcine Kidney Grafts

    Author : Amir Sedigh; Tomas Lorant; Gunnar Tufveson; Olle Korsgren; Styrbjörn Friman; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Organs from deceased donors after brain death (BD) remain the major source of organs for transplantation. The catastrophic event of BD and the inevitable consequences of ischemia reperfusion injury (IRI) are linked to impaired graft quality and transplantation outcome. READ MORE
