The IEA Annex 64 focusing on low-ex communities aims at the improvement of energy conversion chains on a community scale, using exergy analysis as the primary evaluation mode. Within this Annex the participants discuss important aspects and available methods for energy and exergy assessment as well as the added value of aiming for low exergy ...

The existing housing stock plays a major role in the realization of the energy efficiency targets. The non-profit housing sector in the Netherlands dominates the housing market as it represents 31% of the total housing stock. In the municipality of Amsterdam, where this share is even 46%, subsidies were given to housing associations between 2011...

Large deviations observed between the actual and theoretical gas consumption in Dutch dwellings, cast a shadow of doubt on the accuracy of the energy labeling method. In this sense, the accuracy of the calculation methods as well as the inputs being fed, fall under the question. According to several studies, the significance of wall’s thermal...

Buildings in Europe are the largest end use sector and especially residential buildings account for two thirds of this energy use. Despite the fact that building characteristics play a major role in a dwelling’s energy consumption, occupant characteristics and behaviour significantly affect this energy use as well. The Ecommon campaign monitored...

The Hague University in Delft uses an advanced climate control system. All sensors and actuators are monitored and deviations from the sensor data are reported daily. The building manager will have to combine the information from the sensor data in order to draw the right conclusions. In this paper, two possible solutions are described for...

BIM Building Information Model or Modelling connects many different information<br/>systems from various actors during the building construction process with each<br/>other in one easily accessible and understandable model. BIM assures an effective<br/>and efficient building construction process by reducing failing cost and reduces the<br/>use...

A much occurring problem in the Energy Management Systems of existing buildings and HVAC services is that the measurements are unreliable. In this article a methodology is described which can be used to determine the presence of errors in energy monitoring, caused by faulty measurements. These errors can be detected and subsequently diagnosed....

In this paper innovation by design is characterised schematically and methodological with the aim of analysing how projects of innovation by design can be managed. First, I approach innovation by design from an engineering perspective, and show that the incorporation of innovation into design projects has complicated their management by making...

An introduction to the principles and fundamentals of designing rubble mound breakwaters, led to the definition of two important white spots in designing rubble mound breakwaters. These were selected for further investigations in the present thesis. 1. Design of berm breakwaters: A generally lack of data and design formulae was identifed, but...

Based on a database of laboratory data on wave overtopping (around 10,000 tests) a neural network technique is used for producing a generic prediction method. In the first database (around 7,000 tests) the following white spots were detected where additional tests could improve the generic prediction method. This report deals with the laboratory...

Tests have been performed with low steepness and reshaping breakwaters at Ghent University and Aalborg University respectively. The reshaping breakwater is a type of breakwater where the information on overtopping is very limited. The additional tests are described in the following four reports: .. D24 – Part A: Effect of obliqueness, short...

in this study an analysis concerning the pulsating and impact portion of the tensile stresses inside tetrapod armour units is presented. The data has been obtained from a series of small scale model tests performed at Delft Hydraulics. Stresses have been measured using a load cell technique developed and made available by Coastal Engineering...

The paper presents a design formula for Tetrapod armour on a 1:1.5 slope exposed to head-on random wave attack The formula predicts the relative number of broken Tetrapods as function of: the mass of the Tetrapods, the concrete tensile strength and the wave height in front of the structure. Thus, the formula addresses the observed problem of...

The slender, complex types of armour units, such as Tetrapods and Dolosse are widely used for rubble mound breakwaters. Many of the recent failures of such structures were caused by unforeseen early breakage of the units, thus revealing an inbalance between the strength (structural integrity) of the units and the hydraulic stability (resistance...

The rational design diagram for Dolos armour should incorporate both the hydraulic stability and the structural integrity. The previous tests performed by Aalborg University made available such design diagram for the trunk of Dolos breakwater without superstructures (Burcharth et al 1992). To extend the design diagram to cover Dolos breakwaters...
