In the current built environment, the three main glass elements are glass window blocks, (structural) float glass and (structural) glass bricks. Float glass is the most used type of glass element and it is evolving from a skin material to a structural material. Glass hollow blocks became popular in the 1930s, but have lost their appeal due to...

Bridges are exposed to dynamic forces – such as pedestrians crossing a bridge or the wind force acting on a bridge – which cause vibration of the structure. When a structure is forced at one of its eigenfrequencies it deforms into a corresponding shape leading to major deformations, which, in the worst-case scenario, can lead to collapse of the...

In April 2018, a graduation project in the field of architecture was concluded. The project entailed the design of a temporary community centre in the earthquake-damaged historic town centre of L’Aquila, Italy. The underlying social concept was focused on participation of the local population in the construction of the community centre. The...

Additive manufacturing, popularly known as 3D printing, could positively change the fabrication of façade panels. Benefits include manufacturing each façade element uniquely without the use of a mould while having the potential of integrating functions as water drainage and solar shading within the object. Recycling polymers, obtained from...

In the far south of the Netherlands, the erratic river Meuse flows through the landscape. It recently flooded twice in the 1990s, causing much economical damage. Emergency measures, such as a demountable flood wall, were taken to prevent future flooding. And while this solution was to the liking of the inhabitants, the update in the flood safety...

The high compressive strength of the material glass in combination with its transparency, make it an attractive material to use for a column. Though different types and configurations of glass columns have been subject of academic research, a demountable glass column made from laminated components remains unexplored. This structural concept...

Building construction is a complex industry. A wide range of requirement should be achieved within the limited resources by a multidisciplinary team. Hence, errors are likely to occur, and the accumulation of individual mistakes might lead to building failure.<br/>Even though construction is tightly regulated, failure of the modern date...

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...

Glass has been used for centuries. Originally to create weapons, jewellery and decorative ceramics. Nowadays as windows, reagent bottles and electronic devices. It’s only in the last two centuries that there has been substantial development of float glass. The resulting products provide comfort, protection, energy reduction, security and...

The search for a transparent, reversible, and reusable consolidation system for monuments led to the ambition to test possible cast glass interlocking brick designs using numerical calculations. The focus of this research is hence the design, simulation and evaluation of a possible cast glass interlocking geometry using Finite Element Analysis ...

Glass is a commonly used material for façades and roofs. Recently even structural glass elements have been developed and the application of glass in structural elements is becoming more common. The ongoing development of new glass types and different production and processing methods resulted in the manufacturing of thin chemically strengthened...

The number of terrorist attacks on public places has substantially grown over the past two decades. More than half of these attacks were bombings. Past bombing events have shown that 45% of the injuries is caused by glass breakage. . The building engineering practice could help reducing the consequences, by retrofitting glass facades to mitigate...

is thesis focuses on the behavior of the CD20 building system during an earthquake. In order to calculate the forces on the system, first a detailed model was constructed of the characteristic CD20 connection in Diana. This model was used to determine the stiffness of the connection. This stiffness was then transferred into a model of the whole...

The glass group of the TU Delft plans to realize a 14m span glass arched masonry bridge, yet no prescriptions are available on how to assess the structural safety of such a structure. Regulations and guidelines for structural glass relate to float glass elements and do not refer to structures of cast glass elements. In addition, to display the...

Many vacant buildings that are reused are constructed in concrete. With concrete, one thought to have found a solution for the fire resistance of buildings. Today it appears that the fire resistance of concrete is not always a matter of course. Therefore, it is important to properly asses the fire resistance of existing concrete buildings. With...

This research aims at improving the performance of Helmholtz resonators by adding resistance using additive manufacturing. Current use of Helmholtz resonators is focused on tonal applications and modal issues, because of the frequency specific behaviour. A normal Helmholtz resonator curve has a decreasing bandwidth when the peak increases. The...

This MSc. Thesis research attempts to research the spatial distribution of natural light as it interacts with the glass brick masonry façade, in terms of both its quantitative- and qualitative characteristics, with the aim of applying this material in the transformation of historic buildings. An elaborate research on the visual effects of light...

This thesis presents a study on the behavior of none-structural and structural glass at high temperatures. The main objective of this master thesis is to investigate the capabilities of different glass types when these are used as a structural element with fire resistant requirements. It is therefore important to develop an understanding of the...

Glass structure is often dismissed from usage due to cost and the fear of breaking. However glass is a material that more then any other is capable of unique aesthetic values. One big aesthetic value for glass is adding liquids to it. This liquid in the glass can then also be used as a heating system. Combining structure and climate design. In...

The use of structural glass has increased lately, due to the higher demands for transparency in modern architecture. Therefore, the role of glass changes from a mere transparent function (used in windows only) to a function in which the glass is contributing to the bearing structure as well. Because of the fragile nature of glass, it is...
