Summary
Timber provides attractive earthquake performance characteristics for regions of high seismic risk, particularly its high strength-to-weight ratio; however, current timber structural systems are associated with relatively low design force reduction factors due to their low inherent ductility when compared to high-performance concrete and steel...

Development of a New Generation of Structural Composites

Summary
It is reasonable to believe that a second generation of structural products will appear, bringing new properties and promoting the use of biobased materials in the construction of tall buildings. Among the possible development options, Corruven's Vcore and H-core products could offer second-generation material developments. The proposed project will be a product design project. A specification will be established and it will identify possible properties in the CLT structural multilayer product. Prototypes will be produced and tested to characterize them. An environmental characterization under development of the products will also be realized by applying the streamlined LCA method as proposed by Heidari et al. (2017). The optimized product will be fully characterized according to the application potential in the building (mechanical, fire, acoustic).

Summary
Glued glass front constructions have long been in use and are generally considered the state of the art. However, with these solutions the glass serves no stiffening or bearing function, but merely functions as an outer cover. The objective of several research projects was to investigate alternative constructions of stiffening glass fronts, which...

Summary
Timber construction has become completely modernized. It has gained considerably in market share with respect to competing building materials and is dominated by systems such as frame and solid timber construction. Every timber construction is determined by its structure. Hence it is essential to know the connections and relationships from the design stage right through to the construction phase. Systems in Timber Engineering takes a whole new approach to this subject. It is a comprehensive, analytical, and visually organized treatment, from the simple single-family house to the large-scale multistore structure. It includes the building envelope, which is so important for saving energy, and systems for ceilings and interior dividing walls, which are so essential from the vantage point of construction. This work uses plans, schematic drawings, and pictures to show the current and forward-looking state of the technology as applied in Switzerland, a leading country in the field of timber construction.

Summary
Glued glass fronts are extensively applied and meet the highest standards. The objective of several research projects was the development of stiffening glass fronts to replace expansive frameworks or wind bracings. Furthermore, the use of timber-glass composite (TGC) beams was investigated. Within the research project "Load Bearing TimberGlass...
