The construction industry contributes significantly to global emissions. In response to the growing concern about climate change, new methods are being developed to reduce these emissions. Building with timber is one such approach, as it can be CO2 neutral if reforestation is practiced. Timber is a lightweight and flexible material compared to...

Carranza Neurohr, Andres (author)
In the Netherlands, there is an increasing need to create residential spaces in its already crowded cities to accommodate the growing population. Constructing high-rise buildings is one way to try to solve the issue. However, high-rise buildings are sensitive to wind-induced vibrations. The accurate prediction of the dynamic response is...

The shipping industry is forced to reduce its emissions and underwater radiated noise in order to decrease the impact on the environment and limit global warming. Moreover, a low acoustic signature can be lifesaving for a navy ship, especially during submarine on mine threats. To be able to operate as flexible as possible under these threats, a...

In slender high-rise buildings wind-induced accelerations can become the governing design criterion. These issues can be solved by increasing mass, increasing stiffness, or increasing the damping ratio. The focus of this research is on the last option and investigates the opportunities of supplemental damping in the Dutch high-rise building...

The shipping industry, which remains the backbone of international merchandise trade, is striving to reduce its operational cost and more importantly its environment impact. New ships need meet the EEDI (Energy Efficiency Design Index) requirements of IMO (International Maritime Organization). However, the current EEDI is not able to accurately...

In this master thesis the behaviour of a high speed railway track constructed on top of a pile foundation with settlements under a dynamic load has been analysed. Therefore, a model was developed in the software program DARTS, dynamic analysis of rail track structures. In DARTS the railway track was modelled by stiff and elastic layers, which...

The implementation of timber as a load-bearing and stabilizing material for high-rise structures has significantly increased over the last decades due to its potential of reducing the environmental footprint of a structure. Timber structures present a reduced global stiffness and self-weight compared to structures incorporating traditional...

The dynamic behaviour - steady-state and transient - of the DC Microgrids during power disturbance can affect the system’s general performance. A hybrid combination of energy storage devices with slow frequency response, like a Fuel Cell, and with a fast dynamic response, like a Super-Capacitor, provides an improved dynamic response to stabilise...

The Royal Netherlands Navy (RNLN) seeks to eliminate net green house gasses and other harmful- emissions. In this search, the operability of her vessels need to be secured. One of the options for eliminating net carbon emissions is Power to Liquid (PtL) conversion to Methanol. Fuel cells, and in particular Solid Oxide Fuel Cells (SOFCs) may be...

A research into the influence of the main parameters in the preliminary structural design on the wind-induced dynamic behaviour, including soil-structure interaction effects, of high-rise buildings in the Netherlands. The dynamic behaviour becomes more and more important for higher and more slender structure. The dynamic response is controlled...

At this moment hydraulic structures are designed based on a simple method: the Dynamic Amplification Factor (DAF) method. This method does not consider the full dynamic interaction between the wave impacts, structure and water. The research project DynaHicS focusses on the dynamic behaviour of hydraulic structures, taking into account fluid...

Slooten, Elgar (author)
The demand for sustainable high-rise buildings is growing. Such sustainable high-rise could be realized by the use of mass timber for the structural design instead of more conventional building materials such as steel and concrete. Timber is a renewable resource which can be CO<sub>2</sub> neutral if reforestation takes place to close its carbon...

Mussche, Henk (author)
This thesis research focusses on the development of a reliable and efficient 3D calculation model of an existing high-rise, reinforced concrete building in the Groningen area, in order to analyse the dynamic behaviour of the existing and subsequently retrofitted main bearing structure of this high-rise building. The assessment of the existing...

Nowadays, as it is a easy sequence in construction and installation, the monopile is the most common used support structure. Due to the limitation of water depth and lifting capacity, jack-up vessels gradually become unable to fulfill the demands of monopile installation. Floating vessels can expand the market of wind farminstallation due to the...

Manual control cybernetics aims to understand and describe how humans control vehicles and devices, such that more effective human-machine interfaces can be designed. Current cybernetics theory is primarily based on technology and analysis methods developed in the 1960s and has shown to be limited in its capability to capture the full breadth of...

The human controller (HC) can greatly improve target-tracking performance by utilizing a feedforward operation on the target signal, in addition to a feedback response. System identification methods are used to determine the correct HC model structure: purely feedback or a combined feedforward/feedback model. In this paper, we investigate three...

In the manual control of a dynamic system, the human controller (HC) is often required to follow a visible and predictable reference path. Using the predictable aspect of a reference signal, through applying feedforward control, the HC can significantly improve performance as compared to a purely feedback control strategy. A proper definition of...

This thesis presents the first steps of a design study on the robust hopping and balancing robot Skippy. The purpose of the overall design study is to challenge a new design approach for robots with high physical performance. This approach comprises an iterative study of machine (physical system) and behaviour (action strategy) co-design. Skippy...

Reducing fuel consumption from dredge vessels is always one of the priorities of the ship builder and the dredge contractor. In addition there is an increased awareness worldwide regarding exhaust emissions. CO2, NOx and SOx currently are or will in future be regulated strictly by international legislation and local authorities. Looking at a...

Buildings must be designed to meet horizontal deformation and vibration requirements when loaded by a wind force. These requirements can be governing in the design of the load bearing structure of a high-rise building. The structure can be optimized by describing and analyzing its dynamic behaviour. Information on damping is required to...
