  1. 1. In conversation with simulation: The application of numerical simulation to the design of structural nodal connections

    Author : Jens Olsson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; HUMANIORA; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; HUMANITIES; 3D Printing; Design theory; Structural design; Structural efficiency; Simulation; Peridynamics; Force flux density; Nodal connections; Conceptual design; Steel structures; Design process; Digital design;

    Abstract : The thesis explores methods for integration of structural analysis, design and production in a digital design environment. The somewhat ambiguous title implies the ambition to make such integration in relation to the explorative phase of the design process which is described by Donald Schön as having a conversational character.

  2. 2. Innovative structural details using high strength steel for steel bridges

    Author : Oskar Skoglund; John Leander; Raid Karoumi; Mohammad Al-Emrani; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; High strength steel; fatigue; steel bridges; steel and concrete composite bridges; innovative steel details; Bro- och stålbyggnad; Structural Engineering and Bridges;

    Abstract : The use of high strength steel has the potential to reduce the amount of steel used in bridge structures and thereby facilitate a more sustainable construction. The amount of steel and what steel grade that can be used in bridge structures and other cyclic loaded structures are often limited by a material degradation process called fatigue. READ MORE

  3. 3. 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; Stålbyggnad; Steel Structures;

    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

  4. 4. Integrated structural and construction engineering – A study of project team performance in Swedish bridge design

    Author : Daniel P T Ekström; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; constructability; project competence; integrated project teams; conceptual design; sustainability; interprofessional dialogue; project culture; collaboration in construction; bridges; integration in construction; concrete structures; integrated design; pre-construction indicators; performance; structural design; inter-disciplinary; buildability;

    Abstract : The Swedish Transport Administration (STA) ambitiously strives to increase the level of productivity and innovation within its operations while meeting and surpassing national sustainability objectives. In this effort, the STA has concluded that climate gas emissions from construction, operation, and maintenance of the infrastructure must be reduced for Sweden to maintain its position as a pioneer and to reach both national and global climate goals.

  5. 5. 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
