The long and slender structural member, the elastic column, fails due to buckling. Buckling is a predictable, and visible, mode of failure allowing for timely repairs or replacement. This is no longer true when we look at long and slender columns made out of glass as glass is a brittle material. At the moment the critical buckling force is...

Living wall systems are not applied on a large scale, even though they offer multiple benefits to buildings. They are able to improve the air quality, the insulation values or social and psychological benefits. The aim of this Thesis is to increase the application of living wall systems by designing a living wall system with the principles of...

Shell structures are expensive structures due to their extensive construction time and costs making them unpopular in spite of their material and structural efficiency. Temporary support structures are now based on the weight of the structure without taking into account what the incomplete structure can carry by itself. Structural...
