Shell structures carry loads with their thin yet curved shapes. Being thin means shells require little material, which is desirable for minimizing embodied carbon footprints. However, the feature of being curved implies shells require immense effort to design and fabricate. To address the challenges, this dissertation consists of three parts:...

Extrusion-based 3D concrete printing (3DCP), as one of the emerging techniques, has received considerable attention from both academia and industry, due to its numerous benefits for concrete construction, through enhancing the freedom of architectural design, eliminating formwork, optimizing material use, and decreasing wastes, labors and costs....

The investigation of new glass compositions is crucial to expand the possible applications of glass, from the typical applications for building engineering, in the form of cast blocks or floated glass, to more advanced technologies, such as 3D-printed glass or glass to metal connections. Despite the intense research activity and new glass...

Oikonomopoulou, F. (author)
Over the last decades, the perception of glass in the engineering world has changed from that of a brittle, fragile material to a reliable structural component of high compressive load-bearing capacity. Although the structural applications of glass in architecture are continuously increasing, they are dominated by a considerable geometrical...

This thesis analysis the structural design of cilindrical Fusee Ceramique roofs and the effect of the ceramique infill elements for the time dependent deformations, stiffness and load bearing capacity, including second order. To save the few remaining buildings for the coming generations the possibilities to strengthen and stiffen these...

Louter, P.C. (author)
This dissertation investigates the structural aspects of reinforced glass beams. The concept of these beams, which are intended for building applications, is to provide redundancy even if the glass is broken. This redundancy is obtained through a small reinforcement section that is bonded at the tensile edge of the glass beam. Upon glass failure...

This dissertation proposes the Integrated Approach to Structural Glass Safety, based on four clearly defined element safety properties, damage sensitivity, relative resistance, redundancy, and fracture mode. The Element Safety Diagram (ESD) is introduced to provide an easy-to-read graphical representation of these properties. The safety...
