Drying shrinkage can cause structural damage to concrete industrial floors. Shrinkage is caused by evaporation of moisture from the drying material. In the design- and construction-standards, this complex process is not described on a fundamental level. Using finite element modelling to simulate the flow of Moisture through the concrete, it is...

Cities like Amsterdam and Rotterdam are located on top of a compressible clay layer. Most of the buildings in these cities are founded on the foundation layer above the compressible layer. Therefore this compressible layer can induce problems when the soil pressure increases significantly due to the weight of the high-rise buildings. This...

A study on the fire safety concepts used in car parks. To asses the possible damage as a result of a fire, case studies were performed and changes in the car industry were analysed. The new type of fuel systems have resulted in new risks, which are not yet covered in the current design methodology. To understand the probability of a car park...

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...

The prediction of structural vibrations in vibration sensitive laboratory structures is a complex problem involving computationally heavy 3D models with long computational times. However, in the early design phases of a project long computational times are undesirable. Therefore the problem statement of this Master thesis concerns the...

The life cycle of a building has a tremendous impact on the environment. This is due to its energy demand, production and transportation of building materials, and its maintenance. Actually, the building industry is one of the most polluting industries that contribute to climate change. In the Netherlands alone, this sector is chargeable for 50%...

This research investigated in which ways the material environmental impact of the main load-bearing structure of a high-rise building can be reduced. To determine this material environmental impact, the shadow price for each material and product has been determined by using ten environmental impact categories. One of these categories is global...

In recent decades, gas production has caused numerous human-induced shallow earthquakes in the province of Groningen, The Netherlands. The buildings in this area were not designed for these unexpected earthquake loads and have shown to be vulnerable. However, current strengthening measures are considered to be time-consuming, expensive, and a...

Lately structural safety is an often discussed subject in The Netherlands. Recent collapses have made people question if our buildings are actually safe enough. Research shows that the individual probability of death due to structural failure is below the limit of 10-5 per year. However, it is unknown if every single building is safe enough as...

The sustainability of high-rise buildings is always a point of debate and doubt in current research and literature. Several studies have been performed about the zero-energy potential for skyscrapers, however taking into consideration single functions, particularly office and housing buildings. Realistic and modern tall building design however...

To reach the European Union climate targets of 2020 the rate of refurbishment must increase. The problem is that there are many barriers to refurbishment, which causes a low rate and low quality. The objective is to overcome these barriers and stimulate facade refurbishment. This thesis looks at the improvement, that can be made when replacing...

Aiming at maximizing the recyclability of glass and integrating the sustainability with glass structural application, the concept of recycled glass beam has been proposed at the beginning of this project. Based on the investigation of existing glass manufacturing and recycling industry, the resource material has been targeting at float glass...

From the beginning of the 21st century, thin glass has been used as a screen protector for electronic devices and smartphones. During the last 10 years, several studies have been carried out to introduce the thin glass in the building industry. The advantages of this material are light weight, high strength and high flexibility. On the other...

Limitations in the modern housing market supply and the high demand for city centre living space ask for a robust urban densification way of building. This results in the exploration of innovative vertical extension projects, such as the ’De Karel Doorman’ case in Rotterdam. However, demanding the construction method to be extreme light-weight...

In the development of the lighting practice, progress has been made to eliminate bad lighting and to contribute to a visual comfortable scene. Metrics, and subsequent recommendations, have been established to provide uniform horizontal illuminance. In addition, performance-based metrics are developed. For example, various lighting levels for...

Timber construction has a promising future in the face of global sustainable development challenges. Using timber as the main structural material, the carbon footprint of a building is strongly reduced since the carbon will be stored for as long as the building stands or the timber is used. <br/><br/>An integrated structural concept was...

Glass is gaining popularity as a structural material, this is mainly based on its transparent character. But due to its brittle failure behaviour the safety of these structures is an issue. Several concepts are found to guarantee the safety during the development of its structural application. One of these developments is to reinforce glass with...
