Several researches have been done in the last decade about the possibility to “give a new life” to the second-hand reinforced concrete elements of a certain building which has been (fully/partly) disassembled. However, not often the actual technical detailing of their reuse practice are addressed. This study is primarily focused on proposing the...

Reuse of building material is an integral part of making the product circular. However, there is lack of working frameworks and practical tools which can quantify the feasibility of reuse over other choices such as virgin material use or recycling for that matter. Therefore, this research focuses on the development of such a working framework...

Globally the construction is a major contributor to the severity of the anthropogenic environmental impact. The sector emits 39% of the global CO2 and is responsible of 40-50% of material flows. The focus of reducing the environmental impact in buildings is, in the past, mostly attributed to the operational energy. However, due to increasing...

Urban development in the Rijnmond-Drechsteden requires large quantities of sand and gravel for its application in e.g. concrete in buildings or fill sand for subsidence maintenance. The graduation project focuses on how urban design can reduce this consumption within the sand and gravel metabolism in the construction ecosystem. Based on a...

Due to need for finding a reliable semi destructive test to assess the exiting masonry structures in the region of Groningen, the aim of the project is to do a feasibility study on the relation between the microstructure of the mortar and the mechanical properties of replicated masonry walls and see if this technique can be applied to the...

There is currently increasing interest in making a transition towards a circular economy, to improve resource efficiency and to reduce harmful emissions to the environment. The European Union adopted a Circular Economy package in 2015, while the Dutch government introduced a programme to achieve a circular economy by 2050. The construction...

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.<br/> To ensure a certain lifespan of concrete structures, a minimum cover depth has to be applied....

Cracks are commonly occurring phenomena in concrete structures. Cracks provide paths for the ingress of deleterious substances, therefore endangering the durability of the structure. When cracking gets excessive, manual maintenance and repairs are required, which are both costly and time consuming. The demand for durable structures and materials...

The first quay walls were constructed in 2400 BC and were constructed with bricks. Since then, the quay walls have developed a lot. The quay walls nowadays are constructed out of steel, concrete or a combination of both materials. An upcoming material in the field of hydraulic engineering is fibre reinforced polymer (FRP). FRP has several...

CoRncrete is a corn starch based bio-material formed by mixing corn starch with water and sand, and heating the mix in a microwave or oven. This heating process results in the formation of a hardened material. A constant corn starch to sand proportion of 1:5 has been adopted in this study. The transformation of CoRncrete from a semi-solid to a...

A polymer-modified self-healing mortar is a mixture of Portland cement, water, sand, polymer and self-healing material. The polyacrylic ester emulsion (PAE) is used as polymer and as self-healing material bacterial spores from genus Bacillus + calcium lactate is used. The reason why this type of bacteria is used as a component of self-healing...
