Cavitary bone defects are common in orthopedic surgery and may be present after curettage of benign tumors or as tumor-like lesions. Bone graft substitutes, especially from biocompatible materials, can be used as a solution for lling up those defects. However, these cavitary bone defects differ in size and
location. It would, therefore, be...

Research and development in additive manufacturing with concrete has become more widespread over the last decade. The processes developed range from concrete extrusion, to digital fabrication of formworks and the unification of formwork and reinforcement. Although they enable the production of increasingly material-efficient structures, the...

Building Integrated Photovoltaics (BIPV) has the potential to play a major role in the ongoing transition towards nearly zero energy buildings. However, the BIPV market is still a niche market, representing only 1% of the global PV share. One of the main barriers that hinder the deployment of BIPV is the lack of aesthetic flexibility. Architects...

The project proposes an architectural sheltering system for transitional use over monuments and excavations sites in the Mediterranean context. The thesis is concerned about the diaspora of archaeological sites and remains in the Mediterranean where many layers of history are partially unearthed and highlighted. Based on a context research, the...

Sustainability concerns steer the construction sector towards adopting a circular economy philosophy. Steel-concrete composite beams are extensively used in multi-story buildings and bridges due to their competitive construction and efficient material use. Currently the composite action is mainly achieved by headed shear connectors welded to the...

In this thesis, graded bandgap energy a-SiOx:H solar cells are developed to attain a high JSC without compromising their high VOC × FF product. First, a grading method which takes into account the interdependence of bandgap energy, deposition rate and the desired grading profile for a-SiOx:H materials is...

Rapid developments of both new (digital) fabrication techniques and innovative software facilitate the possibility to design, check and construct objects with great complexity and uniqueness without a large price tag. After new techniques slowly entered the field of architecture, the next step is to apply them in civil engineering to design load...

Virtual reality technology has captured the human imagination since before the first ceiling mounted glasses were invented in the 1960’s. Curiosity towards seeing what we can’t see and experiencing what we can’t experience, is one of the drivers behind societal and scientific progress.

In 2012, the technology saw a new phase of...

Knowledge of the influence of loading directions on trabecular bone remodeling in spine is of significant value in understanding the development of spine deformities and vertebral bone quality across different scales. Information on the constitution of a preferred trabecular orientation and mechanical properties of trabecular bone are important...

Objective of the project is the design of a generic, local-based manufacturing facility, ReFab, which is constructed from salvaged materials and operates through collective effort and interactive cultivation in the employment of refuse as raw material input in advanced production processes. These disposed elements can, if elaborated in proper...

Creating smooth, double curved glass façades from thin glass offers highly curved and complex shaped architecture that is less heavy and still transparent compared to conventionally used hot- or cold bent glass. Although bigger curvatures can be achieved with hot bent glass, it requires non-reusable moulds in the fabrication process, whereas...

In Bogotá, the capitol of Colombia, the museum of modern art Mambo needs an extension. This graduation project is a proposal for that extension, which has a focus on the relationship and interaction between the building and the public domain. The result is a building complex that has many different levels of publicness, an open building that is...

Cellular stiffness plays an important role for several diseases such as atherosclerosis, malaria and cancer. Cellular stiffness can be derived by the velocity of a cell that is squeezed through a constriction channel. For example, a rigid cell will move slowly through the constriction channel and vice versa. In this research a microfluidic...

During this project, the possibilities between carbon fibres and glass were explored. It appeared that no significant improvement in mechanical properties can be obtained by reinforcing the glass. Therefore other directions were explored in the kiln, with hot glass, with glue and with electric current, both aesthetic and functional. Eventually a...

During the last few years, Virtual Reality (VR) technology has evolved at an impressive pace. The newest VR systems offer a high level of visual realism and accurate interaction with the virtual environment through spatially tracked controllers. This technology is increasingly being applied in many professions, but in architecture and urbanism...

With climate change changing the world, literally, delta landscapes become more vulnerable. At the same time, delta landscapes become more densely populated every year, creating an uncertain environment for high density urban areas. In the Netherlands, cities are facing treats from the sea level rising, heat stress and
increasing amounts of...
