  1. 1. Thin-walled steel studs in fire : analysis and design recommendations

    Author : Peter Karlström; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Steel Structures; Stålbyggnad;

    Abstract : Development of steel frame modular buildings is gaining increased popularity and support throughout Europe. Due to flexibility in construction and good long-term performance, lightweight steel frame structures are often preferred solutions, for instance in partitions and suspended ceilings as well as for load-bearing elements.

  2. 2. Stainless steel box columns in fire : analysis and design recommendations

    Author : Björn Uppfeldt; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Steel Structures; Stålbyggnad;

    Abstract : The use of stainless steel in buildings is small but increasing, mainly due to the low maintenance costs, favourable corrosion resistance and aesthetic appearance. It is well known that stainless steel also performs better than carbon steel at elevated temperatures. READ MORE

  3. 3. High strength steel : local buckling and residual stresses

    Author : Mattias Clarin; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Steel Structures; Stålbyggnad;

    Abstract : High strength steel provide designers with the possibility of creating more slender and weight efficient structures than would be possible if using steels with lower strength. To be able to do this, a structural designer needs updated and validated codes as aid in their work. READ MORE

  4. 4. Stainless steel plasticity : material modelling and structural applications

    Author : Anders Olsson; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Steel Structures; Stålbyggnad;

    Abstract : The thesis addresses stainless steel in construction with focus on plasticity and shear resistance of welded girders respectively. In the area of plasticity it comprises an account of an experimental study with emphasis on phenomenological observations followed by theorethical modelling. READ MORE

  5. 5. Behaviour of pretensioned bolts in friction connections : towards the use of higher strength steels in wind towers

    Author : Christine Heistermann; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Stålbyggnad; Steel Structures; Centre - Centre for High Performance Steel CHS ; Centrumbildning - Centrum för högpresterande stål CHS ;

    Abstract : During recent years wind energy has established as an alternative to commonenergy sources. To advance its competitiveness, the costs for the constructionof a wind tower have to be reduced. One possible option is the use of frictiongrip joints instead of flange connections to join various tower segments in atubular steel tower. READ MORE
