The changing climate and the need for a new purpose for End-of-Life concrete increased the importance and interest of concrete recycling. To decrease the environmental footprint of concrete, in which cement has the highest contribution, it would be of great importance to be able to recycle cement, which would positively affect the environment....

3D concrete printing is an additive manufacturing method that uses a printing robot to build 3D concrete elements. In the last decade, several 3D concrete printing techniques have been developed and extensive research has been conducted on suitable concrete mixes, the printing process and the material and mechanical properties of the finished...

This master's graduation project researches the potential of upcycling waste glass into glass-ceramic components through casting techniques and thermal treatments. To explore its potential and possibilities, the process of crystallization, the material glass-ceramic and influencing parameters are studied at first. A glass-ceramic is a glassy yet...

Recently, sustainability is becoming a more important aspect in the building sector. The use of performance-driven approaches are progressively growing interest among architects and engineers. Proper design of a large span roof shading system can positively influence the micro-climate of the space underneath, representing a significant source of...

Nowadays glass is more commonly applied as structural element, either as a replacement for, or in collaboration with conventional building materials such as steel, aluminium, timber and concrete. Key arguments to opt for glass in structural design are sustainability, aesthetics and transparency. As for all structural elements, glass elements are...

This project is based on two sustainable construction methods, namely up-cycling (reuse of materials) and vertical farming (green facades). These two concepts are combined to form a ‘Do It Yourself’ double skin façade, a double skin façade made with re-used sliding doors, which is aimed to be capable of developing ‘Edible Green’, which refers to...

Waste management in Lagos State is an unrelenting issue as the population increases exponentially per annum; there is a constant struggle with organization, transportation, and disposal of the daily waste generated per capita within the city. Of the waste generated in households in Lagos, plastic makes up a large percent of the non-organic waste...

Daytime radiative cooling (DRC) is a very novel passive cooling method for buildings that utilises the recent technological advance in wavelength selective-emittance material research and takes advantage of a transparency window that exists in the atmosphere between 8 and 13 μm. Application of DRC in locations where warm weather prevails for...

Buildings don’t use energy: People do. Do highly efficient homes really save energy? Counter-intuitively, dwellings that use less energy have low energy efficiency, and those with higher energy consumption have higher efficiency. Moreover, even accurate building energy simulation for multiple buildings could not predict the actual energy...

It is estimated that about 400.000 houses in the Netherlands – both shallow and wooden pile foundations – could be facing problems with their foundations. Although, house owners are becoming increasingly aware of the fact that problems (and thereby costs) can be prevented if remedial measures are taken in time. Monitoring of the foundation can...

A traditional Trombe wall is known as a high thermal-mass wall, situated behind a window of a room and separated by an air cavity. The idea behind using a Trombe wall is that heat, ventilation and comfort can be passively generated by using the ‘free’ energy of the sun. The surface of the wall absorbs solar radiation when the sun shines, stores...

The objective of this research project is to verify whether 3D printing of concrete (3DPC) reduces the environmental impact by increasing the structural efficiency. During the literature study, numerous articles were identified that claimed an increase of structural efficiency by using 3DPC to reduce material use. Some of these articles suggest...
