Projects in process

Below is a list of projects that are in process. This list will systematically include more mass timber-related research.

  • A Study of Evolutionary Algorithms for Evolving Damage Accumulation Models for Wood
  • Wood waste to Energy: Effect of torrefaction and solvolysis pre-treatment methods on thermochemical conversion of wood waste into Hydrogen-rich syngas.
  • Genome Diversity Database for Pine Tree Improvement and Gene Conservation
  • Pine tree genomic prediction using large-scale genomics, phenomics and environmental data
  • Development of a big data model that correlates tree properties with wood properties in the South African sawmilling industry
  • Investigating the feasibility of developing a biometric timber identification system
  • Characteristic values of strength-graded timber from the Mpumalanga region
  • Experimental determination of the effect of screws versus nails in multiple ply timber truss connections
  • Architecture students (undergraduate): York production facilities sawmills site visit
  • Architecture students (undergraduate): timber-framed structures design prototypes
