Design Optimization of high wooden houses, part 1

Published: 29 January 2007

Area: Industrial Wood Construction Budget: 2.6 million SEK Timetable: January 2007 - December 2009 Project: Willhelm Risberg, Lindbäcks construction


Today's engineering and fire engineering solutions are viable, but by no means optimal. The cost pressures in the industry makes a clear need for continuous development in order to compete. To strategic planning which parts of the build system to be replaced, exchanged or changed requires investment and a long-term thinking - the base plate which formed the backbone of a Volvo in the 90s may be effective but not suitable for today's cars that have different customer requirements.

The projects purpose and industrial relevance

The project aims to develop an optimization method - a systematic decision support - that clearly shows the impact of different architectural solutions to the system's costs, fire safety requirements, stomstabilisering and movements. Optimization method to deal with the discrete quantities of data that constitute the building materials (eg, only wood studs with certain dimensions), but must also be used to demand the provision of new components in product development.

The project's industrial objectives are to:
First Reduce the cost of building the system by 10% by
Second Develop an optimization method for wood building that provides a further development of building components (joists and walls) so that the optimal building systems obtained with predictable performance regarding fire protection and stomstabilisering.

This project therefore contributes to the efficiency of existing wood building. The project draws its empirical data with an emphasis in trävolymbyggnadstekniken, but the method will be Applicable for other wood building.
Third The project will also lead to a long-term construction technology development for wood construction in order to improve construction technology market.
