  1. 1. On inelastic local flange buckling

    University dissertation from Luleå : Luleå tekniska universitet

    Author : Mikael Möller; Luleå tekniska universitet.; [1995]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Structural Engineering; Konstruktionsteknik; Steel Structures; Stålbyggnad;

    Abstract : This thesis deals with inelastic local buckling of I-beam flanges made of steel. The main focus is on the theoretical description of the buckling process, and the influence of various parameters, e.g. the plastic modulus, yield plateau, yield stress etc. READ MORE

  2. 2. Evaluation of Splitting Capacity of Bottom Rails in Partially Anchored Timber Frame Shear Walls

    University dissertation from Luleå tekniska universitet

    Author : Giuseppe Caprolu; Luleå tekniska universitet.; [2014]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Träbyggnad; Timber Structures;

    Abstract : The horizontal stabilization of timber frame buildings is oftenprovided by shear walls. Plastic design methods can be used todetermine the load-carrying capacity of fully and partially anchoredshear walls. In order to use these methods, a ductile behaviour of thesheathing-to-framing joint must be ensured. READ MORE

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

    University dissertation from Luleå : Luleå tekniska universitet

    Author : Gabriela Tlustochowicz; Luleå tekniska universitet.; [2011]
    Keywords : 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

  4. 4. Prefabricated composite bridges a study of dry deck joints

    University dissertation from Luleå : Luleå tekniska universitet

    Author : Robert Hällmark; Luleå tekniska universitet.; [2012]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Civil engineering and architecture - Building engineering; Bridge construction; prefabrication; monitoring; Samhällsbyggnadsteknik och arkitektur - Byggnadsteknik; Stålbyggnad; Steel Structures;

    Abstract : This thesis deals with prefabricated composite bridges in general, and prefabricated concrete deck elements with dry joints in particular.As outlined in Paper I and Chapter 2 prefabrication has several advantages over in situ construction, and has hence been discussed for decades in the construction business.

  5. 5. Modeling the effects of knots in Structural Timber

    University dissertation from Structural Engineering, Lund University

    Author : Christina Foley; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2003]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Material technology; Byggnadsteknik; Building construction; three-dimensional fiber paradigm; fiber deviation; knots; annual growth layer; material matrix; knot bump; structural timber; load carrying capacity; Materiallära; critical knot; knot distance ratio; local principal material directions; stiffness; materialteknik;

    Abstract : The main purpose of the pursued research is to increase knowledge of the effects of knots in structural timber so that characteristics of weaker timber may be determined and applied to improve current grading techniques. In the process, a three-dimensional fiber paradigm was established, which describes variations of local principle material axes in timber containing knots. READ MORE
