[Master Thesis] Sustainable homogeneous wood constructions

Sustainability is discussed all over the world.

This thesis focusses on a sustainable building structure which parts are made just out of wood if possible. Wood is carbon-neutral and available nearly all over the world. Austria is one of the leading countries in modern wood constructions and has a long history of wooden buildings. I am using this knowledge in this thesis. All materials that are based on oil are avoided and other materials that are intense in energy consumption during the production process are reduced to a minimum.

This diploma thesis analyses the properties and the sustainability of wood, its usage as a construction material and provides a solution to a healthy, sustainable and modern life in a wooden building.
