Concrete is the second most used material in the world after water and recent trends show no slowing down of the concrete use around the world. Concrete is also a huge contributor to CO2 emissions as it makes up 8% of emissions. This study investigates the optimization of concrete structures to reduce environmental impact while maintaining...

To align with the objective of the European Green Deal [46] policy of achieving net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050, the construction sector must transition to a circular built environment. Most of the waste in the Netherlands is related to construction and demolition waste, with the industry accounting for approximately 35% of CO<sub>2<...

Equalized involvement of stakeholders in decision-making processes (DMP) allows them to achieve a balanced outcome, when aiming to create value for each participant. However, as the number of stakeholders increases, traditional methods of interactive engagement become more complex, often leading to unbalanced solutions. Identifying such balanced...

This research addresses the environmental impact of foundations in lightweight housing units, focusing on BAM's timber house concept, FLOW. While the engineered timber superstructure is environmentally conscious, the foundation's contribution is often overlooked. The study aims to minimise the Environmental Cost Indicator (ECI) of FLOW houses by...

The challenge of global warming is an increasing concern of the 21st century. The concept of sustainability is therefore considered of high importance. A major problem of the Dutch government is the growing housing demand. Also after the WWII, the Netherlands faced a housing crisis, resulting in about 847,000 council houses. The massive number...

The urban heat island effect is a well-known and pressing problem in cities today related to urbanisation. It is the phenomenon of an increased ambient air temperature in cities compared to the surrounding rural areas. The use of nature-based solutions has been proposed as a way to help solve this problem. These interventions use nature and...

Rijkswaterstaat aims to build circularly from 2030 onward, with the purpose of having a fully circular economy by 2050. Therefore, the aim of this study is to design a reusable modular superstructure, with a small span, which can replace an existing so-called volstortligger superstructure. This is a structure that Dura Vermeer often uses and it...

In many places in Uganda, people do not have a connection to the drinking water supply system and there is a lack of treated water supply, meaning that people only have access to water a certain part of the day. As a result many people rely on springs, handpumps, rivers or lakes, of which the quality cannot be monitored or controlled. <br/><br/...

The aim of the current graduation project is the investigation of the potential of using hempcrete for the construction of residences in the Netherlands. The research focuses on the prefabricated block form of the material and investigates different aspects that can play a major role and eventually affect the choice for the selection of the...

The geo-technical quest to couple technical, environmental, and economic innovation, has increased recent attention towards bio-inspired soil strengthening techniques. This thesis presents a proof-of-concept for a coupled clay inhibition and bio-cementation treatment tested in sand-bentonite, referred to as Bio2Cementation. Fine particles are...

Alkali activated concrete is seen as possible contender to alleviate the environmental footprint of the concrete industry. The goal of this research is to evaluate the extend to which ground granulated blast furnace slag and calcined clay-based alkali activated concrete can be utilized in concrete revetment applications with equal performance in...

This study aimed to evaluate the field scale potential of Microbially Induced Desaturation (MID) to improve the compactibility of silty sands. Conventional soil compaction techniques for saturated silty sands often require either high compaction effort or even fail to reach aspired relative densities. This thesis is a follow-up study based on...

The steel sector is responsible for 4-5% of the total greenhouse gas emissions in the world. Reusing structural steel elements can potentially decrease the need for the production of new steel. However, designing a load-bearing structure with reusable elements poses challenges to the design process. The starting point of the process is different...

The significant adverse contribution of the construction industry to greenhouse gas emissions and natural resource depletion has to be reduced. Regarding jetty platform structures, this challenge can be faced by designing for reusability, a promising concept for environmental impact reduction. However, this principle is not yet being widely...

Beukers, Janna (author)
Due to global warming, in the construction sector there is aimed for a transition towards the circular economy. The past years, many utility buildings were demolished, consisting of a concrete structure. This results in concrete rubble which is often down- or recycled. For new construction projects, new concrete elements will be produced....

With the effects of climate change being more and more frequent, the European union, and other governments world-wide are looking for sustainable alternatives for processes and products that are part of the daily requirements of people. Among these requirements, the construction industry plays a vital role, as it accounts for the consumption of...

Wind turbines are decommissioned when they reach their endoflife. The reason for reaching endoflife varies per wind turbine, but they all have in common that the wind turbine blades can not be recycled and thus end up as waste. Since a growing amount of wind turbines will reach their endoflife the coming decade, the waste problem will increase....

To mitigate climate change and to reach Dutch targets to reduce greenhouse gas emissions with 49% by 2030, emissions by the construction industry must be lowered. Developments regarding mass timber construction have increased the potential to do so. This thesis addresses the problem that the opportunity of reducing CO2 emissions by constructing...

The building industry consumes a lot of material, which causes depletion of material stocks, toxic emissions, and waste. Circular building design can help to reduce this impact, by moving from a linear to a circular design approach. <br/>To reach a circular build environment, all disciplines should be involved, including fire safety design....
