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 Tha Chin River is a river in central Thailand, which starts in Chainat province as a branch of the Chao Phraya River and flows into the Gulf of Thailand at about 35 km southwest of Bangkok. The Tha Chin is one of Thailand’s most important rivers and it plays a vital role for the lives of over two million people living in this basin. Near the...

This thesis presents a design for a topology-optimised concrete floor slab, of which the structural optimisation process is guided by manufacturability constraints from a vacuumatic formwork. The design has been obtained using an open-source, three-dimensional topology optimisation algorithm. Traditional floor systems are cost-optimised but can...

The motivation to adapt a building in terms of an upward vertical extension lies within the need for urban renewable programs. Although this practice has significant supports to make the built environment more sustainable, there are also barriers which invariably concern costs. In the case of vertical extension projects, the constructional and...

Incremental bridge launching is one of the many ways in which a bridge can be constructed. In The Netherlands this method is not often used. This may be explained by the fact, that there are not many suitable locations for application of this method. Incremental bridge launching is profitable for long bridges and can only be used for straight...

At this moment the global human wealth is getting to the next level, which means a growing amount of people is able to travel by plane and these growth figures are seen in the latest global annual passenger’s flows. These latest developments demand building new airports and extending the existing airports heavily around the world in the nearby...

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...

The focus of this thesis research was on developing an assessment protocol which assists the structural engineer in visualizing the structural possibilities for multi-story industrial heritage constructed between 1910 and 1950. The protocol distinguishes seven assessment steps which can be used to (1) indicate the material and structural quality...

Based on the research to the opportunities in the civil engineering sector, there can be concluded that the amount and the types of the opportunities differs per project category. The most striking aspect in the elaboration of the different opportunities is that the most influential opportunities are (partly) driven by impacts on external...

Sustainable construction is about a new manner of thinking. This research defines a sustainable construction process as a cyclic manner of organizing a process, opposed to the current construction process which is organized in a linear manner. The achievement of a sustainable construction process involves various obstacles. This research...

During a design competition held in 2010, a preliminary design was made for an extension on top of the Oval tower. The Oval Tower is an existing building with a height of about 100m. However, following that competition, this design was never put into practice. According to experts in the field, this project still has a great potential. It was...

The number of high-rise buildings and their corresponding height are increasing in the world. However, the highest building in the world with a load bearing precast structure is only 132m high (Het Strijkijzer in The Hague). Is this the maximum height of precast concrete or can we achieve greater heights with this building method? And how do the...

The subject of this thesis is the reuse of hollow core slabs from office building to residential buildings. It was written as final part of the master Civil Engineering of the TU Delft. The occasion for this particular topic is the short functional lifetime of buildings compared to the technical lifetime of their concrete load bearing structure....

Een prefab bouwmethode is afhankelijk van verticaal transport. Daarnaast neemt de windsnelheid toe op hoogte. In de scriptie is kwantitatief bepaalt hoe groot de invloed van het transportsysteem is op het bouwproces van prefab betonnen hoogbouw boven de 200 meter. Hiervoor is onderzocht hoe de verticale transporttijd de cyclustijd beïnvloedt en...

Jetties are designed by the guidance of the deterministic standards. These standards are based on the standardized values of safety factors (semi-probabilistic) and use the load and the capacity of every element as a standard value. The interaction of every separate element as a part of a whole is not taken in to account. The use of...

In the Netherlands blast furnace slag (BFS) cement is commonly used. Concretes with this type of cement are known for good durability properties. Where concrete is designed to crack in order to let the incorporated steel reinforcement take over tensile stresses, it is mainly for durability reasons that non-designed cracking of concrete is...
