Kirilov, Konstantin (author)
The post-war architectural and urban design paradigm’s characteristic trait of spatial and functional determination limits the possibility for spatial adaptation and flexibility in urban spaces, struggling to face ever-steadily occurring social, economic, and climate challenges. In Droixhe - the largest post-war social housing ensemble in Liège,...

Large complex infrastructural projects and programs show cost overruns and delays. As these are often funded by governmental bodies, the cost overruns also have an economic impact for society. Where projects are focused on delivering their scope within time and budget, a program is focused on achieving a broader goal. To do so, a program...

Accurate forecasts are essential for integrating wind energy into the power grid. With wind energy's growing role in the renewable mix, precise short-term generation forecasts are increasingly vital. Turbine-level forecasts are critical for optimal wind farm operation, control, and planning. However, the wind's unpredictability and the complex...

The loss of an upper limb significantly impacts an individual's life, directly affecting their ability to perform activities of daily living. Prosthetic devices play a crucial role in aiding amputees' rehabilitation in society, primarily driven by advancements in externally powered prostheses. Although prosthetic devices on the market offer...

Advancements in aerial vehicles have presented new challenges for flight control system design. The disturbed airflow caused by rotors and flapping wings and the nonlinearity and uncertainty increased by morphing components impede the identification of a globally accurate model of these vehicles. Additionally, complex components can increase the...

Moss covered surfaces are a promising way to mitigate the urban heat island effect. A layer of moss on a building’s façade reduces heat absorption during summer, hence passively cooling the building and its surroundings. The startup Respyre wants to offer such moss layers as a commercial product. A bio-gel mixed with moss fragments is sprayed on...

Neglecting actuator dynamics in nonlinear control and control allocation can lead to performance degradation, especially when considering fast dynamic systems. This thesis provides a novel method to account for actuator dynamics in the control allocation solution, dynamic incremental nonlinear control allocation, or D-INCA. The incremental...

Matricardi, Paolo (author)
The building sector is increasingly acknowledging the necessity to mitigate its environmental impact in response to the challenges posed by climate change. Adaptive facades specifically are used to develop a dynamic control of the envelope’s properties, modifying their behaviour in response to outdoor conditions and indoor stimuli. Thermochromic...

This research explores the opportunities and limitations of image-based AI tools for industrial design. In collaboration with designers at Royal Gazelle, several tools were tested. AI tools can broaden and speed up the creative processes but also lack control for the user. AI models and designers use different terms to articulate perceptions and...

In the midst of economic turmoil and environmental adversity, Bedouin communities in the Levant demonstrate remarkable resilience through their architectural practices and communal ethos. This study examines the spatial dynamics of Bedouin settlements, exploring their adaptation strategies during the economic crisis of 2023 in Lebanon, and...

Despite nearly three decades having passed since the collapse of the Soviet Union, Soviet-era housing remains a significant component of major cities’ housing stocks. Often perceived as outdated and socially stigmatized, these housing estates surpass their intended lifespan, leading to difficulties in maintenance and renovation. In this study,...

This thesis discusses the heritage approach of adaptive reuse as a way to preserve and protect abandoned churches in Limburg. For this, a discussion is had on the social and cultural dynamic and history of Limburg. This is a province in the Netherlands with a deep historical connection to the Catholic religion. This paper explores the province’s...

“Comfort […] is in short supply. Not because the world is running out of it but because, in the face of the climate crisis, we have to collectively adjust to its going away” (Barber, 2019, p. 44). During the last century, the Western hemisphere has grown accustomed to high standards of comfort reliably enabled by the built environment. Within...

This research studies the effects of adaptive vernacular reuse on industrial heritage sites. Hereby the studied effects are focused on industrial sites in Dutch cities. Within the Netherlands a trend can be seen of cities trying to densify the urban environment. This trend is the consequence of a housing shortage and a low availability of...

Currently, the Southwestern Delta is ill. The inability to produce its essential ecosystem services hinders the Delta from being healthy. Systems that make the Delta economy prosper are the main reasons for this obstruction. If current hazards like salinisation, soil depletion, and nitrogen pollution continue; the livelihood of the peri-urban...

Making decisions when future conditions are uncertain is a challenging endeavor. This thesis develops a framework to analyse flood risk and create Dynamic Adaptive Policy Pathways, which can provide insights in the behaviour of flood risk protection measures in many future scenarios. The pathways are used to identify robust measures, dead ends...
