Traditionally, steel joints are calculated by the calculation rules described in the Eurocode 3: NEN-EN 1993-1-8. Effective lengths are important parameters to determine the different resistances of the components in the steel joint. Finite Element Analyses (FEA)...

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...

In 2015 Georgetown, Guyana suffered from major flooding due to heavy rainfall. The use of a centuries-old agricultural drainage system for the urban drainage of the largest urbanized area of Guyana, poses problems considering flood safety. In 2016 a report was published by a ‘Dutch Risk Reduction Team’ (DRR Team) with recommendations on how to...

This thesis has been aiming to design a light-weight, structurally safe, and engineering practical pretensioned roof structure. Firstly literature study has been performed to gain insight about the application of tensegrities as roof structures. With some programming and scripting skills some special components based on the Grasshopper...

Without doubt the need to give a founded estimation of the remaining life span is needed. In the NEN 8700 and 8701 and the guideline of Rijkswaterstaat (RBK) a way to determine the structural reliability is given. The corresponding estimate of the remaining life span is based on but not equal to the suggested reference period of the loads. These...

The redevelopment of the Post Rotterdam building and, in particular, the design proposal of the vertical foyer initiated this research project. The foyer has a special design and as a result, a special analysis method has to be used. The desired material is steel, consequently stiffened steel shell structure was deemed the most appropriate...

Widely deformable subsoil verifies a predominant concern in the design and construction of high-rise buildings. Extensive total and differential settlements are observed that are usually not in accordance to the predictions. In the Netherlands, the problem appears to be more intense in Rotterdam, the city that counts the largest number of...

In the Netherlands buildings are designed using a grid with multiples of 3.6 meter. Within these designs floor spans of 7.2 meter are popular (double grid size). The deep decks of composite floors at this moment in time are designed to reach an unpropped span of 5.5 meter. This master research is focused on finding a possible deck design for a...

Background Consumption of materials is an always ongoing process. In the linear economy, or a ‘take-make-dispose’ consumption pattern there is no attention for the rest value of products. The circular economy and bio-based economy introduce that loop-back for materials at the end of their lifetime. This research is about the application of bio...

This thesis presents a parametric design tool for structural analysis of shallow shells. The tool was developed with Rhino and Grasshopper. Also VB (Visual Basic) scripting was used to create new components in the Grasshopper interface. The techniques and methods involved for the development of the tool consists mainly of classic analytical and...

Since the crisis in 2008 affected the global financial market, the economic climate changed drastically. A significant increase in the amount of vacant office buildings was introduced. Combining this fact with the increasing demand for living space in urban areas, transformation of vacant office buildings to residential buildings seems to be a...

Introduction In navigation locks levelling is executed under free flow. The net flow from the upper section into the lower section of the waterway is considered as a water loss. An innovative water saving concept is an IRS Lock. IRS stands for inflatable rubber structure. The concept consists of an air filled IRS applied in a lock chamber. In...

The modelling of brittle fracture is essential for the assessment of structural safety. It remains a challenge due to sharp material softening after realization of the material strength. Standard nonlinear finite element analysis techniques using incremental-iterative solution procedures have been adapted to deal with the sharp softening curves...

The aim of this thesis is to investigate the use and effects of advanced computational power in the structural design process of glass structures. This investigation resulted in the finding of the AE-model and AE-method which are be both extensively explained in the masters thesis Main Report. The AE-model, which is the abbreviation of Architect...

The goal of this thesis is to research the feasibility level of reusing existing structural concrete elements. Nowadays, a major problem that the Dutch building industry is facing is the high vacancy rate of office buildings. The available solutions for the vacant offices are transformation or demolition. Transformation is the best solution but...

This master’s thesis is about the use of higher strength steel in buildings and the economical advantages of the use of this steel. The economical advantages are examined based on a comparison of similar designs with the use of the steel grades S355 and S460. The latter could in some cases result in large weight and cost savings. The costs are...
