  1. 1. Continuous improvement and experience feedback in off-site construction timber-framed module prefabrication

    University dissertation from Luleå : Luleå tekniska universitet

    Author : John Meiling; Luleå tekniska universitet.; [2010]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Träbyggnad; Timber Structures; Construction Engineering and Management; Byggproduktion;

    Abstract : Continuous improvement implies an incremental, ongoing effort to improve products, services or processes. Some construction companies have chosen to face competition by adopting an off-site construction strategy, one form of which is timber-framed module prefabrication. READ MORE

  2. 2. The hygrothermal inertia of massive timber connstructions

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Stéphane Hameury; KTH.; [2006]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; 1H MRI; Building simulation environment; Heat buffering capacity; Heavy timber construction; Indoor climate; In-situ measurement; Magnetic Resonance Imaging; TECHNOLOGY Civil engineering and architecture Building manufacturing engineering; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Samhällsbyggnadsteknik och arkitektur Byggproduktionsteknik;

    Abstract : The work presented in this Doctoral dissertation concerns the ability of heavy timber structures to passively reduce the fluctuations of the indoor temperature and of the indoor relative humidity, through the dynamic process of heat and moisture storage in wood. We make the hypothesis that the potential offered by the hygrothermal inertia of heavy timber structures is significant, and that it could provide a passive way of regulating the indoor climate.

  3. 3. Diffusion of systemic innovations in the construction sector

    University dissertation from Halmstad : Halmstad University Press

    Author : John Lindgren; Högskolan i Halmstad.; [2018]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Construction Sector; Innovation Diffusion; Systemic Innovation; Knowledge Integration; Knowledge Development;

    Abstract : The amount of research dealing with innovation has increased dramatically, construction management research included. This thesis focuses on innovations with inter-organizational effects, systemic innovations, which may radically change and improve the construction process. READ MORE

  4. 4. Stress-laminated-timber bridge decks subjected to ultimate loads

    University dissertation from Chalmers University of Technology

    Author : Kristoffer Ekholm; Chalmers tekniska högskola.; Chalmers University of Technology.; [2011]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Konstruktionsmaterial; Construction materials; Konstruktionsteknik; Construction engineering; Stress-laminated timber; Timber bridges; Ultimate-load tests;

    Abstract : Stress-laminated-timber (SLT) bridge decks are a satisfactory alternative to conventional short-span bridges in terms of cost and performance. SLT decks are made from several deck laminations positioned side by side. READ MORE

  5. 5. Modular long-span timber structures a systematic framework for buildable construction

    University dissertation from Luleå : Luleå tekniska universitet

    Author : Anders Björnfot; Luleå tekniska universitet.; [2004]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Träbyggnad; Timber Structures;

    Abstract : One of the identified reasons for the low amount of timber construction in Sweden is a general lack of knowledge about timber engineering and how timber can be used to its full advantage. One way for increased timber construction is the development of a cost-efficient and easy to comprehend building system. READ MORE
