Project partners of Dynamic Response of Tall Timber Buildings under Service Load (DynaTTB) met for the project’s second meeting at the University of Ljubljana 16-17 September 2019.
The InnoRenew CoE is leading DynaTTB’s work package for dissemination, and Dr Michael Burnard, InnoRenew CoE deputy director, presented the project’s data management plan as well as open access and open data policies.
In addition, Dr Boris Azinović, from the Slovenian National Building and Civil Engineering Institute and coordinator of the InnoCrossLam project, presented InnoCrossLam, which, like DynaTTB, is funded by the ERA-NET Cofund Action “ForestValue – Innovating the forest-based bioeconomy”. Together, they identified starting points for cooperation in both projects.
The project partners then visited the construction site of a four-story cross-laminated timber (CLT) building in the Rožna dolina neighbourhood of Ljubljana where InnoRenew CoE researchers Dr Iztok Šušteršič and Dr Igor Gavrić are performing vibration measurements for the DynaTTB project. The tour was led by Dr Bruno Dujič, director of the company CBD d.o.o. (a Living Lab InnoRenew member) that carried out the building and wooden structures of the CLT building.
DynaTTB project partners are developing new, more detailed experimental research, with calibrated numerical models, that are enabling better description and prediction of high-rise building behaviour under wind load. The InnoRenew CoE, in addition to leading dissemination, is managing coordination of the project’s development and preparation of guidelines for the design of tall wooden buildings under wind load.
