Summary
Using Charles and Ray Eames’s famous 1950s House of Cards slotting toy as both design metaphor and structural precedent provides the starting point for a novel building logic (utilising three existing Swedish timber systems) that allows volumetrically slotted units to stack inside of and support each other. Contemporary computer-aided fabrication techniques based on evolutionary algorithms and CNC manufacturing strategies are used to produce a methodology for designing a kit-of-parts system at the scale of the skyscraper, based on the slotting together of cross-laminated timber (CLT) panels. A catalogue of novel slotting methods is produced, and a number of alternative slotted joint treatments identified that hold promising potential for further development, parametrically design and control volumes, understand the fabrication workflow and constructional sequence on site, and build prototypes of the chosen slotting configurations at scales ranging between 1:50 and 1:1.

Summary
The airtightness of building must be measured for the evaluation of building energy performance. To make up the reference airtightness value of wooden houses built in Korea, blower door test was carried out in the 36 houses. And, during the test, the causes of air leakage were inspected simultaneously. The result showed that the...

Summary
Cross-laminated timber, also known as X-Lam or CLT, is well established in Europe as a construction material. Recently, implementation of X-Lam products and systems has begun in countries such as Canada, United States, Australia and New Zealand. So far, no relevant design codes for X-Lam construction were published in Europe, therefore an extensive research on the field of cross-laminated timber is being performed by research groups in Europe and overseas. Experimental test results are required for development of design methods and for verification of design models accuracy. This thesis is part of a large research project on the development of a software for the modelling of CLT structures, including analysis, calculation, design and verification of connections and panels. It was born as collaboration between Padua University and Barcelona"s CIMNE (International Centre for Numerical Methods in Engineering). The research project started with the thesis “Una procedura numerica per il progetto di edifici in Xlam” by Massimiliano Zecchetto, which develops a software, using MATLAB interface, only for 2D linear elastic analysis. Follows the phase started in March 2015, consisting in extending the 2D software to a 3D one, with the severity caused by modelling in three dimensions. This phase is developed as a common project and described in this thesis and in “Pre-process for numerical analysis of Cross Laminated Timber Structures” by Alessandra Ferrandino. The final aim of the software is to enable the modelling of an X-Lam structure in the most efficient and reliable way, taking into account its peculiarities. Modelling of CLT buildings lies into properly model the connections between panels. Through the connections modelling, the final aim is to enable the check of preliminarily designed connections or to find them iteratively, starting from hypothetical or random connections. This common project develops the pre-process and analysis phases of the 3D software that allows the automatic modelling of connections between X-Lam panels. To achieve the goal, a new problem type for GiD interface and a new application for KRATOS framework have been performed. The problem type enables the user to model a CLT structure, starting from the creation of the geometry and the assignation of numeric entities (beam, shell, etc.) to geometric ones, having defined the material, and assigning loads and boundary conditions. The user does not need to create manually the connections, as conversely needs for all commercial FEM software currently available; he just set the connection properties to the different sides of the panels. The creation of the connections is made automatically, keeping into account different typologies of connections and assembling of Cross-Lam panels. The problem type is special for XLam structures, meaning that all features are intentionally studied for this kind of structures and the software architecture is planned for future developments of the postprocess phase. It can be concluded that sound bases for the pre-process and analysis phases of the software have been laid. However, future research is required to develop the postprocess and verification phases of the research project.
