  1. 1. Adhesive Joints in Timber Engineering. Modelling and Testing of Fracture Properties

    Author : Erik Serrano; Byggnadsmekanik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; wood; test method; tensile strength; stress distribution; size effect; numerical simulation; laminating effect; laminated beams; joint; glued-laminated timber; glued-in rod; fracture mechanics; finite element method; finger-joint; experiment; damage; constitutive modelling; adhesive; bending strength; Environmental technology; pollution control; Miljöteknik; kontroll av utsläpp; Construction technology; Anläggningsteknik; Material technology; Materiallära; materialteknik;

    Abstract : This thesis, which is a compilation of seven papers, concerns the mechanical testing, numerical analysis and constitutive modelling of wood-adhesive bonds in timber engineering. Applications such as finger-joints, glued-laminated timber and glued-in rods are considered. READ MORE

  2. 2. Benefits of strengthening timber with fibre-reinforced polymers

    Author : Alann André; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Experimental results; Carbon; Timber; Tension perpendicular to the grain; Ductility; Flax; Reinforcement; Compression failure parallel to the grain; Kinkband; Composite materials; Numerical model; Analytical model; FRP;

    Abstract : As a material, timber offers a wide range of alternatives in terms of structural applications. The natural defects present in timber are, however, the source of large variations in mechanical properties. READ MORE

  3. 3. Steel-to-timber dowel joints : Influence of moisture induced stresses

    Author : Johan Sjödin; Hans Petersson; Carl-Johan Johansson; Per-Johan Gustavsson; Växjö universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; constraint stresses; contact-free measurement; dowel-type joints; humidity variations; moisture-induced deformations; timber structures; Building engineering; Byggnadsteknik; Byggteknik; Civil engineering;

    Abstract : Joints are critical parts of timber structures, transmitting static and dynamic forces between structural members. The ultimate behavior of a loaded building depends strongly on the structural configuration and the capacity of the joints. READ MORE

  4. 4. Strengthening of timber structures with flax fibres

    Author : Alann Andre; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Träbyggnad; Timber Structures;

    Abstract : The natural defects present in timber are the source of large variations in mechanical properties. This drawback has been partially counteracted with the use of Engineered Wood Products EWP (glulam, composite I-beam, parallel strand lumber, etc.) instead of solid wood. READ MORE

  5. 5. Stabilising system for multi-storey beam and post timber buildings

    Author : Gabriela Tlustochowicz; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Civil engineering and architecture - Building engineering; Samhällsbyggnadsteknik och arkitektur - Byggnadsteknik; Träbyggnad; Timber Structures;

    Abstract : For multi-storey timber buildings, the stabilisation against horizontal loads is one of the key issues, which becomes more severe with height. There are a few main concepts utilised to resist lateral forces; shear wall action, diagonal bracing, and frame action. READ MORE
