  • Ballistic impact on concrete plates with compressive strengths of C35, C75 and C110 

    Veerakathy, Desmond (OsloMet - storbyuniversitetet. Institutt for bygg- og energiteknikkOslo Metropolitan University. Department of Civil Engineering and Energy Technology, 2020)
    The main objective of this thesis has been to assess the behavior of concrete plates subjected to ballistic impact from ogival steel projectiles. The experiments were run at the Structural Impact Laboratory (SIMLab) at ...
  • Formability analysis of AA6016-T4 aluminium alloy sheets subjected to roping 

    Tveit, Sigbjørn (OsloMet - storbyuniversitetet. Institutt for bygg- og energiteknikkOslo Metropolitan University. Department of Civil Engineering and Energy Technology, 2020)
    Due to its good formability characteristics, AA6xxx aluminium alloys have become popular as a light-weight alternative to steel for components produced by stamping operations for use in the bodywork of cars. In this thesis, ...
  • Structural analysis of reinforced concrete beams affected by alkali-silica reaction with focus on material models for concrete 

    Tairi, Albian; Nesheim, Leonard-Johan (OsloMet - storbyuniversitetet. Institutt for bygg- og energiteknikkOslo Metropolitan University. Department of Civil Engineering and Energy Technology, 2020)
    Alkali-silica reaction (ASR) is a chemical reaction that occurs in concrete between the alkalized cement and silica within the aggregates. ASR produces a gel around the aggregates which absorbs water, expands, results in ...
  • Automatic reverse modelling of box girder bridge from point cloud data 

    Knutsen, Torjus Berg; Vaksdal, Fridtjof (OsloMet - storbyuniversitetet. Institutt for bygg- og energiteknikkOslo Metropolitan University. Department of Civil Engineering and Energy Technology, 2020)
    Building Information Modelling (BIM) has over the last decades brought the physical- and digital worlds closer together. BIM implementation is now expected in construction projects, ensuring interdisciplinary cooperation ...
  • Comparison of concrete shear wall and mega-braced steel frame regarding seismic performance 

    Hansen, Caroline Tveit; Myhre, Katrine (OsloMet - storbyuniversitetet. Institutt for bygg- og energiteknikkOslo Metropolitan University. Department of Civil Engineering and Energy Technology, 2020)
    The seismic behavior of two different lateral force resisting systems are compared regarding base shear, roof displacement and drift ratio through nonlinear static and dynamic analyses in the software SAP2000. The case ...
  • Analysis of structural effects due to ice formation inside hollow steel foundations 

    Ailenei, Robert (OsloMet - storbyuniversitetet. Institutt for bygg- og energiteknikkOslo Metropolitan University. Department of Civil Engineering and Energy Technology, 2020)
    This master thesis is written on behalf of Statnett SF, which is the system operator of the Norwegian power system. Statnett has developed a new type of foundation which requires less time to assemble and is more convenient ...
