The existing building stock has been in the focus of European Union policies for energy savings. Nevertheless, energy certification schemes refer mostly to operational energy and usually do not consider aspects related to the life cycle of the building. To look at the overall energy cost during the lifespan of a building, the energy used to...

The present paper investigates Bio-based fibre-reinforced plastics, used as a load-bearing element of a bridge. We aim to increase the renewable content and decreasing the embodied energy of FRP. To achieve that, the consisting raw materials of these plastics which are based on non-renewable resources, are substituted by alternative less energy...

Hoe ontwikkelde het vakantiepark zich en waarom zo? Deze vraag staat centraal in dit proefschrift naar de ruimtelijke ontwikkeling van één van Nederlands bekendste vakantie-accommodaties. Hypothese daarbij was dat die ontwikkeling niet los te zien is van de woonomgeving, omdat het vakantiepark zich steeds in reactie daarop tot een alternatief...

Through almost half-century, the politics of social housing championed by the totalitarian regime that ruled Portugal from 1928 until 1974 was designed to mitigate conflicts. With the revolutionary coup of April 25th 1974, this state of affairs would change swiftly but not lastingly. In the two eventful years of Portugal’s transition to a...

The identification of clusters or communities in complex networks is a reappearing problem. The minimum spanning tree (MST), the tree connecting all nodes with minimum total weight, is regarded as an important transport backbone of the original weighted graph.

Ondanks dat ik mijn ontwerpwerkzaamheden zojuist opgeschort had om mij volledig op het onderwijs en de theorie van architectuur te richten, ben ik meteen ingegaan op deze vraag. Nadenken over een kerkgebouw, dat...
