Tall Timber Buildings
Most of the timber buildings are still low-rise buildings with less than ten storeys. However, the last few years the interest in also using timber for higher buildings has grown, but almost all of the plans for buildings with more 20 to 30 storeys adopt concrete and/or steel to ensure the stability of the timber structure.
The aim of this master thesis is to investigate whether it is possible to design a tall timber building with a structural system of at least 30 storeys tall that consists of only timber elements from ground level up. In order to find an answer a 30-storeys tall structural system is designed. The most important issues for tall timber buildings are included in the research: lateral displacement, strength capacity, fire safety design, connection design.
