  1. 1. Sustainability-, Buildability- and Performance-driven Structural Design

    Författare :Alexandre Mathern; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; HUMANIORA; NATURAL SCIENCES; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; HUMANITIES; material developments; performance; requirements; constructability; sustainability; buildability; integrated design; structural engineering; structural developments; design method; bridges; finite element analysis; concrete structures; civil engineering; construction technology;

    Sammanfattning : The construction, maintenance and operation of infrastructure networks represent substantial impacts, both positive and negative, in all three dimensions of sustainability: economic, social and environmental. The greatest possibility to reduce the negative impacts and increase the positive ones is at the early design stage of construction projects. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Buildability of concrete structures : processes, methods and material

    Författare :Peter Simonsson; Luleå tekniska universitet; []

    Sammanfattning : The causes for the slow development of the construction industry is often attributed the traditional ”peculiarities of construction“, including such factors as one-of-a-kind products, temporary organisation, and on-site production. However, signs of new thinking are becoming apparent in the construction industry in Sweden that emphasise change. LÄS MER

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

    Författare :Daniel P T Ekström; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :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;

    Sammanfattning : 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.

  4. 4. Connections for Timber-Framed Structures - Assembly Properties and Structural Behaviour

    Författare :Dan Engström; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :frames; nails; connections; structures; interaction; glue; assembly; timber; economy; semi-rigidity; adhesive; joints; splices;

    Sammanfattning : By tradition, the design and development of connections has focused on the optimization of strength and stiffness. The subject of this thesis is the interaction between the assembly and structural properties of connections for timber-framed structures. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Addressing the complexity of sustainability-driven structural design: Computational design, optimization, and decision making

    Författare :Alexandre Mathern; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :finite element analysis; concrete structure; civil engineering; wind turbine foundation; parametric design; construction; multi-objective design optimization; bridge; structural engineering; life cycle sustainability assessment; integrated design;

    Sammanfattning : Being one of the sectors with the largest environmental burden and high socio-economic impacts sets high requirements on the construction industry. At the same time, this provides the sector with great opportunities to contribute to the globally pursued sustainability transition. LÄS MER
