It is predicted that in about 100 years most of the earth's fossil fuels will have been depleted. Currently, fossil fuels still make up 80% of the Dutch energy production. Thus, to handle this depletion, the research on renewable energy production and its usage is being stimulated by governments. With the use of fossil fuel energy production, it...

In dit onderzoek zal antwoord worden gegeven op de vraag: Moet het falen van gemalen mee worden genomen in de watersysteemtoets? In de 6-jaarlijkse toetsing van de waterschappen wordt bepaald of het watersysteem voldoet aan de door de provincie opgestelde eisen voor wateroverlast. Op dit moment wordt er in deze toetsing geen rekening gehouden...

Since ramjet propulsion eliminates the need for oxidizers, it provides an alternative to classic rocket engines for missiles and projectiles. However, to capture free-stream air, ramjet engines require large supersonic air intakes, which can be an operational nuisance. A possible alternative is to make the supersonic intakes flush with the...

Mass-spring systems are commonly used in structural components. Understanding their characteristics and pitfalls is an important issue, combining physics and mathematics to prevent such systems from resonating and causing structures to weaken or collapse. This way, suitable solutions can be found such as the use of dampers with the right...

My proposal for Reuversweerd is a function it originally used to have in the early 20th century; a horse breeding farm. After the attacks of WWII and the vacancy of the buildings since several years, the entire estate has been in decay. My proposal aims to give back a functional reuse to the buildings and the plot in order to ensure a...

Renewable energy projects, such as wind and solar (PV) parks, are rapidly being built to replace fossil fuel based energy sources. The major drawback of electricity production from renewable sources is that they are intermittent and therefore lead to amismatch between the supply and the demand of energy. Energy storage in the form of hydrogen...

The “Changing zone” is part of the former military area Hembrug, Zaandam. In this zone a special exchange emerged in the density of the buildings. When production started growing, buildings that were seen as unfunctional were demolished and often the new created open spaces were filled with buildings again. This interaction of dilution and...

The main inspiration for my design originates from the great variety of spaces, atmospheres and time layers on site. Preserving this unique quality for the public and making it experience-able as well as using it as a source of revenue are my main focuses. I pose the question:”How can the historic layers of the site be preserved and made...

The ‘resource curse’, a term coined by Richard Auty in 1993, refers to the paradox that the abundance of natural resources tends to have adverse effects in a country’s economic, social and political well-being (Ross, 2015). This correlation has also led many to refer to this phenomenon as the ‘paradox of plenty’. When a country depends...
