In this paper a view is given on the role of standards in the building industry. The question is discussed whether standards are really needed or form, as sometimes stated, a hindrance for the efficient flow of the building process. Then an overview is given of the total system of harmonised European standards for steel structures, where...

This paper deals with statistical evaluation models for resistance and material testing. It is shown that for a limited number of tests, say I to 4, as normal in daily practice, the model presented in Annex D 'Design Assisted by Testing' of Eurocode 1 [1] can result into un¡ealistic low design values. As an alternative, a sophisticated model...

From experimental evidence, it was concluded that existing rules for the calculation of the behaviour of fire-exposed composite beams and slabs often lead to conservative solutions. Furthermore, the range of common applications had grown beyond the limits of existing calculation mies. It was feit that existing rules lacked a fundamental basis,...

Het op natuurlijke wijze ventile-ren van een parkeergarage wordt ten on-rechte vaak als niet toereikend beschouwd. Zeker als men zich strikt houdt aan de ontwerpregels en de ingebouwde veilig-heidsmarges volgens de NVN 2443. Dit is jammer want een dergelijk windaange-dreven systeem kan een aantal wezenlijke voordelen hebben boven een mechanisch...

European Recommendations exist which provide calculation rules to determine the strength and stiffness of sandwich panels composed of two metal faces with a foam in between. In case of openings in such panels (e.g. for windows) an influence will appear with regard to the stiffness and loadbearing capacity. At the institute TNO Building and...

Masonry consists of brick and mortar. Next to the laying mortar there can be a separate pointing mortar as well. Each of these components can suffer damage. Such damages, of course, have to do with the properties of the components and with the agressiveness of the environment. However, next to their composition, the properties of a mortar appear...

A computer program has been developed to predict the wind pressure coefficients Cp on facades and roofs of block shaped buildings. The program is based on fits of measured data, including wind shielding by obstacles and terrain roughness. Main advantages of the program are: it needs no expertise of its users on wind pressures; the input is...

The shower test quantifies the amount of specific preservative components which leach from treated timber under simulated open storage conditions. The test method measures leaching from both organic and inorganic salt treated timber. Shower tests of CCF, CCZF, CCB and Cu-quat treated timber which have been performed over the last 5 years by TNO...

A system of induction units of an existing air conditioning system has been analyzed with respect to its dynamic properties. Time constants were calculated and measured by analogue models. Comparison with measurements at the installation itself showed a reasonable agreement. Frequency responses were studied in the same way. Lumping of the...
