Wintermans, Marten (author)
To align with the objective of the European Green Deal [46] policy of achieving net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050, the construction sector must transition to a circular built environment. Most of the waste in the Netherlands is related to construction and demolition waste, with the industry accounting for approximately 35% of CO<sub>2<...

Existing content-based image retrieval models work well for natural photos, but not for images of architectural floor plans. <br/>Previous work on floor plan retrieval has focused on graph-based methods, rather than image-based floor plans.<br/>Training a CNN-based representation learning framework on segmented floor plan images with standard...

Jiang, Luxi (author)
In the construction industry, composite structures combining concrete and steel are commonly employed in floor systems due to their exceptional performance in compression and tension. With a growing emphasis on sustainability and Life Cycle Assessment (LCA), this thesis introduces a novel concept: a modularised floor system consisting of...

This paper discussed two International Organization for Standardization (ISO) standards, namely, ISO 19152 – Land Administration Domain Model (LADM) and ISO 16739 – Industry Foundation Classes (IFC), to identify three-dimensional (3D) multi-floor building rights. These days, it is challenging to characterize all multifunctional structures due to...

Arslan, O. (author)
Post-earthquake structural damage shows that out-of-plane wall collapse is one of the most prevalent failure mechanisms in unreinforced masonry (URM) buildings. This issue is particularly critical in Groningen, a province located in the northern part of the Netherlands, where low-intensity ground shaking has occurred since 1991 due to gas...

This Master Thesis research is carried out to investigate the most efficient re-mountable timber car park in terms of feasibility and structural performance. Applying the re-mountability principle with a sustainable material like timber is important to help the construction industry tackle environmental problems like global warming. Specifically...

Klappe, Lilly (author)
Currently, the building industry contributes to up to 50% of climate change. A way to reduce the impact is by replacing current building materials with more environmentally friendly materials, such as timber. Engineered wood products, such as cross-laminated timber (CLT) panels, have increased strength, stiffness, and stability which enables...

This research investigates the feasibility and potential of utilizing BFRP floors in modular buildings as a low environmental impact and cost-effective alternative to conventional floors. A modular building is introduced as a case study, the Natural Pavilion in Almere, to bring focus to the research and set a baseline for the requirements of the...

van Rooij, Nils (author)
With the building and construction sector accounting for a significant portion of final energy use and emissions, and society’s increasing focus on environmental awareness and improvements, the impor- tance of sustainable construction has never been greater. The utilisation of timber in construction offers clear sustainability benefits and has...

van der Werf, Coen (author)
The recent developments in the building industry to build more sustainable should result in the use of light constructions with a low environmental impact. Timber is a suitable material for this purpose. To reduce the environmental impact of a building, an improvement in an often used structural element can have a significant impact on the...

This research aims to improve the structural safety of wide floor slabs with openings due to embedded non-structural elements. The multidisciplinary design of these slabs has resulted in various safety issues, including errors in the design due to the absence of a calculation method and insufficient integration between designs of different...

The climate emergency calls for a global shift towards a low-carbon economy, to preserve natural resources and biodiversity, while limiting global warming and its consequences. This project focuses on the impact of distribution centres, intended for the storage of commercial goods. Warehouses are characterised by large flexible spaces and simple...

Jain, Uday (author)
A large share of the buildings today is still masonry buildings, both reinforced and unreinforced. Post-earthquake reconnaissance studies have shown a remarkable difference between the performance of reinforced and unreinforced masonry buildings. While the unreinforced masonry buildings tend to suffer severe damage, even collapse, resulting in...

Street view imagery (SVI) is one of the largest (growing) resources in urban analytics. A global close-up of the urban environment, if you will, which is rich in (untapped) information such as floor count. Floor count is useful in many applications, from improving energy consumption calculations to creation of 3D city models without elevation...

This work presents the application of timber-based retrofitting techniques to a case-study stone masonry church featuring a wooden roof from 18<sup>th</sup> century. From the static point of view, the original roof structure presented a number of undersized structural elements, and its members were poorly or not connected among each other and...

Wood-based retrofitting techniques for seismic upgrading and architectural conservation of existing buildings have found increasing application in the last decades. With reference to the in-plane seismic strengthening of existing timber floors, a particularly efficient solution consists of an overlay of plywood panels fastened to the sheathing....

Laser scanning (LS) is an effective technology for accurately capturing point clouds of visible surfaces of objects in 3D scenes. The point clouds were subsequently used for various applications, for example, generating 2D drawings of the floor or building information models (BIM) and structural inspection. However, in practice, the products...
