During this master thesis, research is done on the structural feasibility of a demountable football stadium. To avoid derelict stadiums after one-off events such as the World Cup or Olympic Games, a solution is found in the application of a demountable stadium that can be relocated once a year. The goal of the research is to present a...

The goal of this thesis is to contribute to the understanding of the method CFD by engineers in determining wind loads on structures and ideally contribute to the development of a future design tool. The field of wind engineering is explored and wind tunnel and CFD modelling is discussed. Results determined with wind tunnel tests and CFD...

In recent years, various types of plate-like timber materials have been introduced to the building industry, offering a wide range of new possibilities. Due to a lack of knowledge on these possibilities, in the Netherlands, the material is not used as often as could be expected. To explore the boundaries of timber engineering, in this thesis, it...

In the Netherlands, timber is rarely used as primary material in medium rise buildings. The production of these timber buildings is very small compared to the total medium rise production. Because of this, timber as a construction method is an uncommon choice for designers and contractors to make. This results in a slow growing experience with...

Advantages of timber as a building material are: small dead weight, good thermal characteristics and in some cases low overall building cost. Nature has created large cantilever structures of 150 m high in the form of eucalyptus threes. History show furthermore manmade structures as timber radio towers of 190 m high and wooden religious...

In the need for more green energy a prominent role is reserved for wind energy. Offshore wind energy in deeper waters capitalises on more efficient wind properties and increased public acceptance compared to onshore wind energy and wind farms close to shore. In the coming years the offshore wind market is expected to evolve rapidly, especially...

The report contains a research on UHCP and the theory of thin shell structures. The combination of these aspects is used for a complete structural design for a dome structure with a span of 150m. The conclusion and recommendations which where found were then applied for a preliminary design for 'Fiere Terp', a architectural design for a sports...

Since the first high strength concrete mixtures were designed in the 1970s, a lot of research is performed. Despite the recommendations that were written, full legislative coverage of high strength concrete remained unavailable. The new Eurocodes are also valid for high strength concrete, so the question rises how high strength concrete can be...

There is large difference in height between high-rise buildings in the Netherlands and high-rise in other continents such as North America and Asia. The tallest building in the Netherlands, the “Maastoren”, has a height of 164.75 meter whereas in the rest of the world buildings with a height of more than 300 meter are not uncommon. In Dubai the...

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...

This study intends to develop a design method of adding more stories on existing building by using a case study of construction project in Leidschendam where 9-stories are to be added on existing 6-storey residential building. A low riser building is to be changed into multistory building. The state-of-art of the project was designed by the...

The main objective of this graduation project was designing a feasible load bearing structure for the Rotating Tower, within the set boundary conditions given by the architectural design. The concept “Rotating Tower” is developed by the Italian architect David Fisher. The main idea behind this concept is: the building of the future. Mr. Fisher...

Slender steel plates loaded in compression will buckle out of plane before their cross-sectional capacity is reached. Precisely determining the failure load in an analytical way is an impossible exercise. Therefore many researchers have put effort into finding a simple design method, which would still predict the plate buckling load with the...

Usually, concrete bridges contain a ‘thick’ bridge deck. For various reasons, bridges are constructed with railings. This thesis discusses the stability problem of concrete bridges, which are designed with integrated railings into the carrying construction. The most important advantage, using load bearing railings, is a thinner bridge deck. This...

Een stalen plaatligger is een hoog I-profiel samengesteld uit stalen platen die aan elkaar worden gelast of gebout. Stalen plaatliggers kunnen geplaatst worden als dakligger in industriehallen. Het toepassen van een stalen plaatligger in plaats van een raatligger of vakwerkligger kan in economisch opzicht de optimale keuze zijn. Door het...

Wanneer men in de binnenstad een parkeerkelder onder een gebouw wil realiseren zijn er slechts beperkte mogelijkheden met de huidige gebruikte technieken. Een oplossing hiervoor is het pneumatisch caisson. Door de eigenschappen van deze methode kunnen de risico’s beperkt worden en kan relatief snel een kelder gerealiseerd worden. De uitkomsten...
