|Coordinator||SVENSK TRÄGRUNDLÄGGNING AB|
|Funding from Vinnova||SEK 299 258|
|Project duration||April 2017 - May 2018|
Purpose and goal
The purpose has been to through the company Svensk Trägrundläggning AB illustrate and demonstrate the possibilities both economically and climatically, the great potential this product could have for the wood industry corporate actors. Svensk Trägrundläggning AB intends to push this knowledge forward and develop the idea. The investigation work made available by Vinnova has given a broad foundation that should pay for interest and support to be found in the wood industry. So that this idea can be developed for the heaviest loadings of the house constructions all parts.
Expected results and effects
The investigation work have touched the central parts of this house construction section: Air tightness in joints arising in new material combinations, this through lab tests. Thermal factors such as inertia, energy consumption and overcurrent temperatures in storage of energy, this through simulations. Moisture wise, the situation of wet rooms and building moisture, with and without air ventilation, this through simulations. Construction stability in both smaller and larger buildings, through calculations. Biocharring for the products enviromental sustainability.
Planned approach and implementation
540/5000 It feels important to have the product idea investigated from a perspective as broad and competent as possible based on the budget made available through the support of Vinnova. Svensk Trägrundläggning AB has been able to hire people who are leaders in various subjects and competencies related to construction here in Sweden. The investigative work has progressed in a constructive spirit, which has sparked into a good material that should attract interest in the wood industry´s various actors. In this context, Swedish Trägrundläggning AB aims to be a key player.
