The building and construction sector play a key role in achieving a sustainable development. In European countries, buildings are responsible for 40-45% of energy consumption, leading to significant amounts of CO2 emissions. The implementation of reusable structures lead to less waste and harmful emissions to the environment. The main purpose of...

A relatively new and not rather common technique in construction industry is the use of 3D printers to print architectural structures and buildings. Nowadays, parts of the printed object are build in inside environments, where after the parts have to be transported to their desired location, which is very costly and time consuming. A solution...

To date, an unprecedented number of 65 million people around the world have been displaced. Of this, 25.4 million are refugees. In Europe, almost three million people claimed asylum in the EU between 2015 and 2016. However there has been relatively little discussion within the architectural community as to how architecture should engage with and...

This article presents a micromodeling computational framework for simulating the tensile response and tension-stiffening behavior of fiber reinforced polymer–strengthened reinforced concrete elements. The total response of strengthened elements is computed based on the local stress transfer mechanisms at the crack plane including concrete...

This paper presents a constitutive relationship to describe the uniaxial response in statics of brick and mortar samples of Adobe. This defines a traditional masonry whose components are made of soil mixture reinforced with fibres. Only recently Adobe has started attracting scientific attention, primarily as a consequence of the dramatic...

When engineers at Tunnel Engineering Consultants (TEC) used the Eurocode 2 (EC2) for the verification of flexural cracks in cross sections of immersed tunnel elements, they found out that there was more reinforcement needed for crack width limitation than for tensile strength of the reinforced concrete. This raised questions, namely whether the...

Coal fly ash is widely used in as raw material in concrete industry because it can replace part of the cement and fly ash contributes to improve certain properties of concrete. As a way to reduce the contribution of coal fired power plants to the climate change, more and more coal is replaced by biomass. To keep fly ash as a valuable resource...

In this thesis, existing concrete municipal slab bridges are regarded. Many of these bridges were designed and built in the 1960s and 1970s. These bridges are still in service, and subjected to higher and more frequent loads than at the time of design. This leads to uncertainties in the safety of these bridges. Many municipalities become...

SCOPE - Design thinking is the most used method of design within the faculty of design engineering. Design thinking methodology has three pillars, technical feasibility, user desirability and business viability. Every designer should design on the limits of new technology, make products that people want to use, all while maintaining a feasible...

In the year 2006, Delft University of Technology started researching ‘Strain hardening Self-healing concrete’ (SSC). The reason for this research was the desire to increase the durability of concrete. This depends mostly on the reinforcement.
To ensure a certain lifespan of concrete structures, a minimum cover depth has to be applied....

Although there has been extensive research and several demonstration projects in Belgium and abroad, the use of recycled aggregates in concrete is still limited in practice. Several barriers were identified: lack of practical experience, limiting standards and the need for specific quality assurance. The paper describes recent developments in...

According to the European Commission website, construction and demolition waste (CDW - consisting of materials such as concrete, bricks, gypsum, wood, glass, metals, asbestos, excavated soil…) accounts for approximately 25% - 30% of all waste generated in the EU. To move towards a recycling society, various policies have been launched by...

The use of recycled aggregates in new structural concrete is generally considered as a measure for lowering the environmental impact of concrete. Existing literature considers transport distances and the final performance of the concrete (linked to its composition) as main influencing factors to evaluate the environmental burdens or gains when...

--- ENGLISH VERSION --- The spalling damage observed to concrete structures after severe fire exposure has been the topic of scientific research for the past decades. This phenomenon is commonly characterised by the sudden and in some cases violent breaking off of concrete pieces from the cross-section. In this thesis the derivation and the...

Polymeric capsules can have an advantage over glass capsules used up to now as proof-of-concept carriers in self-healing concrete. They allow easier processing and afford the possibility to fine tune their mechanical properties. Out of the multiple requirements for capsules used in this context, the capability of rupturing when crossed by a...

When studying chloride-induced corrosion in reinforced concrete structures, essential information of interest is the concentration of chloride ions in the system. The absence of a reliable method for monitoring the free chloride ions justifies the attempts towards establishing a feasible practice in the application of the already known Ag/AgCl...

This research paper is a TU Delft Master’s thesis for graduation track in the field of Building Technology. Its main theme, digital manufacturing of reinforced concrete structures, has already been studied/researched by many other enthusiasts; but they adopted approaches mainly based on the digital production of formworks or 3D printing of...
