Due to the transition towards a circular economy, sustainable design strategies are growing in importance. An example of such a strategy is IFD: Industrial, Flexible and Demountable design. This design strategy has been developed recently and focuses on modular designs that can be changed in shape and whose components can be demounted and reused...

Selecting the optimal stability framework for high-rise steel buildings is a critical decision that impact both economic efficiency and sustainability. This decision is not easy since there are many stability frameworks to choose from, such as tube, concrete shear-wall, and outrigger system. Designers and clients aspire to compare multiple...

Re-refined Engine Oil Bottoms (REOB) are a waste product from the re-refining process of waste engine oil. There is a large incentive in the world to produce recycled engine oil and the production of REOB in this process is increasing. On the other hand refineries are going through transitions due to economic and regulatory reasons (i.e. IMO...

This thesis studies the use of metamaterials for mitigating train-induced ground-borne vibrations, a growing issue with the projected increase in train transportation. Traditional mitigation measures such as trenches often fall short, particularly at low frequencies and small incidence angles. Metamaterials, engineered to alter wave propagation...

This thesis focuses on the structural behaviour of prestressed concrete girder beams with a particular emphasis on stiffness degradation near intermediate supports due to cracking, in inverted-T girders. Despite advancements in bridge engineering, there is still a lack of understanding regarding crack development along the length of the beam and...

To address the increasing housing demand in Europe and simultaneously tackle the challenge of creating a more sustainable construction industry, timber modular buildings present an innovative solution. However, before multi-storey modular buildings become a widespread practice, various engineering challenges need to be addressed. Ensuring...

The transverse stability of timber terraced houses can be provided by CLT stability walls where decoupled timber terraced houses are preferred to meet acoustic requirements leading to rather large thicknesses for the CLT stability walls and many large connections for anchorage to the foundation. The main goal of this research was to investigate...

Cement production for concrete is responsible for 5-8% of the global anthropogenic emissions, making it essential to search for alternative binders. This study focuses on alkali-activated materials (AAMs) as a potential replacement for Portland Cement (PC) to reduce carbon emissions. The practical implementation of AAMs in the construction...

Numerous traffic bridges have been constructed over the last 150 years. Because bridges are commonly built based on an expected lifetime of 75 to 100 years, a large quantity of bridges are reaching the end of their design lifetime, or even are far overdue. To ensure these bridges remain operational without experiencing catastrophic failures,...

Unreinforced Masonry, a popular construction material with a rich historical legacy, has been resilient through centuries, despite its susceptibility to failure through various loading conditions such as seismic forces. Understanding the mechanical behaviour of masonry, particularly the cohesion and frictional mechanisms at interfaces between...

This thesis investigates the usability and creation of a multi-criteria optimisation tool for a facade element consisting of two outer glass layers and a 3D-printed core. The chosen constraint is related to the structural requirements laid down by the NEN codes based on the ULS and SLS. The criteria are: the transparency criterion, which...

The current understanding of auxetic metamaterials in structural engineering applications is limited. Auxetic materials exhibit lateral contraction under compressive loads, possessing a negative Poisson's ratio. The research addresses this gap, focusing on the use of auxetics for steel reinforcement in structural concrete elements to enhance...

With the continuous increase in transportation volume, bridges face the challenge of carrying higher traffic loads. As a result, bridges undergo fatigue due to repeated and increasing loads, leading to progressive deterioration of their structural reliability. While existing codes already account for several variables affecting the concrete's...

In this project, student teams from Universidad San Francisco de Quito and Delft University of Technology worked together to provide safe drinking water in Ecuador. We used M-100 chlorinators from the company WaterStep, donated by Water Ambassadors Canada, to chlorinate water in schools and communities. The journey involved testing water quality...

FRP is increasingly utilised in the built environment, following successful implementations in the aerospace and marine industry. However, it exhibits poor stiffness and stability compared to conventional materials such as steel, making it challenging to satisfy serviceability and comfort requirements. Optimising FRP to address these challenges...

Macaulay's method utilizes singularity functions to describe discontinue forces acting on beam structures. This method has been extended to determine internal forces and influence lines, making use of a single expression. The method can be applied to analyze all possible scenarios for both one-dimensional and two-dimensional constructions.

Masonry structures occupy a significant share of the current building stock due to widespread material availability and cost-effectiveness. Regions with high seismicity, like the Himalayas, have typically developed local seismic culture over the centuries. This has led to improved construction techniques providing an enhanced seismic performance...

Masonry arch bridges have been around for centuries and are, in the Netherlands, mostly located in historical city centres. As the axle loads of vehicles passing these bridges have increased over the years, the need to re-evaluate the structural safety of these bridges has increases. To do so, different techniques have been developed. However,...

The preservation of historical heritage buildings frequently requires the assessment of brick masonry structures. These structures exhibit complex behaviour due to the arrangement of units and the interaction between bricks and mortar. This study aims to compare two modelling techniques for simulating masonry's compressive response and...
