The aim of this research is to make the early design process more efficient. This is done with a parametric model, which compares high-rise stability systems. The research is focused on the stability systems shear walls, core, outrigger and tube. All systems are executed in concrete cast-in-situ, in the range from 100 to 250 m. The parametric...

Quadrangular Grid shells have generated interest in recent years for their application in rationalizing free form geometry in the built environment. Shell structure are efficient because their form is governed by flow of internal forces. But while discretizing shells into grid shells, instead of using flow of forces, current method follows...

The novel technique of 3D Concrete Printing (3DCP) shows great potential in the reduction of labor and material as well as the fabrication of freeform design. Different research institutions and companies recognize this potential and have set up printers to further investigate and develop the technique all over the world. Some pioneering...

Shell structures have been regularly used in the past for creating huge spanning structures, with the use of minimal material. Even though this method saves a lot of material, the labor cost of constructing these structures is high, due to the amount of work on the building site. By prefabricating these structures, a huge amount of labor and...

In the EU, the heating and cooling of buildings consumes 14% of all energy. This is a major consumer for one type of activity, and it is compounded by the fact that 75% of it is sourced from fossil fuels. The thoughtful design of facades play a major role in the reduction of heating and cooling energy loads, and the reduction of both...

Research in using Topology optimisation as a tool to improve the design process of bridge design. The research focuses on implementing Topology optimisation in the design process of architects and engineers. As an example topology optimisation is used to propose a design for a pedestrian bridge in Amsterdam.

This thesis is produced in order to make steps in the field of parametric design for engineering. Currently there is a wide variety of tools available of made within companies. But they commonly lack the possibility for iterating and teamwork. Furthermore many of these scripts make use of optimization. However the conditions are often not...

The objective of my graduation project was to understand the lack of loadbearing Fibre Reinforced Polymer (FRP) structures and why in most of the example FRP components are being used as cladding. In order to do that I decided to design an FRP loadbearing canopy, which had to be a shell structure with large spans between its support points. In...

Shell structures are expensive structures due to their extensive construction time and costs making them unpopular in spite of their material and structural efficiency. Temporary support structures are now based on the weight of the structure without taking into account what the incomplete structure can carry by itself. Structural...

This graduation project is exploring the potential of combing the kinematic and structural properties of foldable structures, and apply this in the development of a structural glass deployable roof system.

The aim of this graduation project was to demonstrate that thin chemical-strengthened Aluminosilicate glass could be a feasible cladding material in the building industry. Literature studies demonstrated that the production of Soda Lime glass costs enormous amounts of energy, which pollute the earth. That is why, instead of improving the Soda...

Currently the building construction industry is still using its traditional way to make buildings and leads to several issues, high energy consumption, more waste than needed, less profit, not optimized and high failure cost. This is because each and every building is unique and the wheel is reinvented for every designed building. The reason of...

Free-form transparent wide-span spatial structures which have being constructed so far, are based on the concept of three sets of components, the structural components, usually steel elements to ensure both compressive and tensional capacity; the glass cladding elements for expressing transparency; and thirdly an in between set for connecting...

Windload is a critical force effect to high-rise structure. With this lateral load, the building requires large amount of material for structure in order to handle this load. Adaptive façade that is designed to respond to wind direction and velocity can reduce this lateral load and reduce the demand of structure. The result will be that the...

In today’s world, terrorism is an unfortunate reality. Since 9-11, blast design has become a well-sought after design not only for federal and military buildings but also for other high risk buildings being a life safety issue. Facades are the barriers between the blast and the structure. De¬signing a façade for the safety of the occupants has...
