Abstract [en]

The potential of building multi-storey timber buildings has changed in recent decades. The building of apartment houses with fully prefabricated volume modules in wood is an industry sector that is rapidly increasing its capacity. A number of house manufacturers that have delivered volume modules, primarily for single family homes, are now expanding their production to multi-storey buildings up to 6-8 floors. This is a challenging task for producers, since the available design procedures for timber buildings have not yet been fully implemented for these types of buildings.The aim of the work is to develop an efficient and flexible finite element model to analyse the three-dimensional structural behaviour of multi-storey buildings using prefabricated volume modules made by wooden stud-and-rail structure. The model will be used to study the global structural behaviour of various timber walls, volume modulus and modular-based multi-storey buildings when subjected to different types of loading. The model will also be used for detailed analysis and design (using so-called adaptive modelling) of the most critical (weak) parts of the structure.
