Currently, most of the modular building can be fabricated off-site, except for the stability system. Therefore, the question arises: Could modules be designed such that there is no need for an additional stability system? As modules are typically built in a rectangular shape, incorporating stability elements such as bracings along the longer...

To address the increasing housing demand in Europe and simultaneously tackle the challenge of creating a more sustainable construction industry, timber modular buildings present an innovative solution. However, before multi-storey modular buildings become a widespread practice, various engineering challenges need to be addressed. Ensuring...

The construction industry contributes significantly to global emissions. In response to the growing concern about climate change, new methods are being developed to reduce these emissions. Building with timber is one such approach, as it can be CO2 neutral if reforestation is practiced. Timber is a lightweight and flexible material compared to...

The importance of joints in timber structures is strongly emphasized in the existing literature (e.g., Blaß & Sandhaas, 2017; McLain, 1998). The aim of this project is to provide insight into whether the cross-sectional sizes of the member are dictated by the dimensional sizes of the laterally loaded dowel-type connection or the strength and...

Increasing housing demand in Europe and the need to be more sustainable are asking the construction industry to leave the traditional pathways and innovate. An emerging construction method with volumetric timber modules potentially offers the solution. However little is known about the robustness of this new innovation. Therefore, this thesis...

Dynamic behaviour often is a topic of concern in the design of pedestrian bridges. It is time-consuming to assess and little is known about the way it is influenced by the characteristics of a bridge. In many cases, a bridge needs testing after is has been finished to determine the specifications of a damper. <br/><br/>Striving to reduce the...

Low-frequency sound transmission in a cross-laminated timber apartment building can result in annoyance, even if the acoustic requirements of the building code are fulfilled. Cross-laminated timber is an upcoming material in the building industry. But there are also problems arising when building with this relatively new material. CLT is a...

This research looked into the influence of negative skin friction on timber piles in Amsterdam. Tensile load tests were performed on new, instrumented timber piles at Overamstel in Amsterdam. The negative skin friction calculated from the test data was compared to the negative skin friction from NEN 9997-1 for a single pile. The test results...
