The main focus of this thesis is on a thin glass sandwich panel combined with a three-dimensional printed core pattern. The core pattern provides stiffness to the panel, but it also influences the daylight transmission. The goal of this research is to design a façade system which can dynamically improve the daylight performance, effectively...

This study aims to evaluate the effectiveness of Ultrasonic-assisted drilling (UAD) of Glass laminate aluminium reinforced epoxy (GLARE) at high cutting speeds (Spindle speeds: 3000–7500 rpm; feed rates 300–750 mm/min) by analysing the thrust force and hole quality metrics (surface roughness, hole size, and burr formations. The research also...

Model Predictive Control can cope with conflicting control objectives in building energy managements. In terms of user satisfaction, visual comfort has been proven in several studies to be a crucial factor, however thermal comfort is typically considered the only important aspect. Besides human well-being, visual comfort strongly impacts the...

Fibre Metal Laminates (FMLs) have been widely utilised in aircraft structures for their specific strength, durability and damage tolerance. Most aircraft structures, due to their size, require joining, and FMLs allow for a special type of joint called the splice, a unique but a lesser known joint.<br/><br/>The bulk of research into the splice...

The present Master thesis explores the implementation of a glare-based control strategy for Venetian blinds in buildings with totally transparent facades. The case study concerns the Co-Creation Center, a building that hosts three different types of events: presentations, meetings and workshops. The diverse occupancy patterns, coupled with the...

The expansion of urban PV systems brings up the concern that the reflection from PV modules will cause glare to neighbors. In a densely constructed city, glare can occur when you have PV systems installed on the rooftops of low rises where the solar reflections travel to the surrounding high rises. This issue is more detrimental at airports,...

Provision of daylight without the risk of discomfort glare is one of the aspects that determine the quality of the classroom environment. Although discomfort glare from daylight is under investigation for a long time, a knowledge gap concerning the applicability of the existing metrics to the spatial conditions of the classroom is identified in...

GLARE laminates are multi-layered metal-composite materials created from bonding sheets of metallic alloys with carbon or glass fibre layers. The application of hybrid-conventional machining processes such as ultrasonic-assisted drilling (UAD) is becoming of great interest to the aerospace industry due to its capability in reducing the...

Fibre metal laminates (FMLs) are multilayered metal composite materials currently used in aeronautical structures, especially where fatigue and impact resistance are required. FMLs are produced in large panels and often require assembly using the drilling process for riveting purposes. Hole making is a critical machining process in the...

The calculation of field-of-view luminance based metrics for visual discomfort from glare evaluation in real scenes via HDR (High Dynamic Range) luminance capture does generally require the use of wide view fisheye lenses. This paper presents an easy to implement and low-cost method to estimate a fisheye lens’ total field-of view and projection...

The objective of the present study was to find how well a group of selected luminance-based metrics predict reported visual discomfort from daylight glare in spatial conditions that differ from the conditions where metrics tend to developed and validated for. An empirical study involving the assessment of visual discomfort from glare by n=50...

Heated GLARE, a Fibre Metal Laminate with an integrated heater element, has been developed for de- or anti-icing systems in aircraft structures. Besides cyclic thermal loading these structures are also subjected to mechanical loading. To investigate the effect of static loading in addition to thermal cycling a series of tests have been performed...

Distortions and residual stresses are predicted in Fibre Metal Laminates (FMLs) under large deformations. A new modelling procedure is presented for small and large deformation analysis of thermo-viscoelastic problems of orthotropic materials. The material model is implemented in a finite element package which can be used for cure and/or...

The manufacturing of Fibre Metal Laminates, consisting of alternating layers of pre-preg fibre and metal is complex, and defects can be introduced during manufacturing. The automation of the manufacturing steps is vital for future Glare production, and specific defects have to be considered. Among them, gaps between pre-preg plies represent a...

Heated GLARE, a Fibre Metal Laminate with an integrated heater element, has a promising potential as de- or anti-icing system in aircraft structures. To investigate the long-term durability of heated GLARE previously reported thermal cycling tests up to 12,000 cycles are extended up to 144,000 cycles and moisture conditioning is included....

Finite-width-correction factors (FWCF) are required for GLARE to accurately predict fatigue crack growth using linear elastic fracture mechanics. As demonstrated in earlier work, these factors effectively correct for the change in specimen compliance, which in GLARE relates to intact fibre layers and the formation of delaminations between...

Residual stress analysis within hybrid structures is the focus of this study. The non linear stresses through the thickness are determined using a semi-destructive method known as Incremental Hole Drilling (IHD). Finite element modeling is used to build a mathematical code simulating GLARE laminates with initial residual stresses applied. The...

The building sector in Europe represents 40% of the energy consumption and, of this amount, 26% is represented by office buildings that demand 44% of the energy only for lighting. Therefore, architects and engineers have a big responsibility to find design strategies and technologies that answer to this issue. In particular, a possible approach...

Bearing-bypass behaviour for composites is different than for metals and therefore this behaviour needs to be re-evaluated. This thesis work aims to provide an initial test set-up to map the bearing- and bypass behaviour in Fibre Metal Laminate mechanical joints, to develop a simple method which can be used by engineers for joint design. This...
