This thesis focusses on the application of vertical profiled mortar connections in precast concrete shear walls that are built up with a stacked element configuration. The goal of the project is to develop a practical modelling approach in order to be able to apply the connections in a FEM model for structural analyses. For this purpose several...

The assignment is commissioned by BinBang, a company with the mission to save as much waste as possible from the incinerator. BigBang’s focus is on improving the waste separation approach of municipalities, consumers and companies, through their products, and basically by coaching the citizens. In high rise areas (HRAs) in the Netherlands,...

In the past decades Mumbai has experienced a huge increase of citizens who, drawn by the economic opportunities of the big city, come to Mumbai for chances of a better life. The city is struggling with the effects that this has on the city. A big part of its population reside in informal settlements, living under impoverished circumstances. This...

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 CO2 neutral if reforestation takes place to close its carbon...

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...

High-rise buildings are a potential solution to the environmental impact caused by the built environment and the increasing demand for space in urban areas. As recent developments focus on reducing the impact by operational energy (OE) (heating, cooling, hot water and ventilation during use phase), impact by the embodied energy (EE) (production,...

The city of Amsterdam is facing a housing shortage and according to the future population prognosis, the problem is going to become more severe due to growing immigration numbers. Following Brexit, Amsterdam, along with other European cities are competing to attract the biggest share of potentially relocated businesses and organisations from...

The trend of the slender and high-rise building has made the structure prone to dynamic loading. This thesis is focused on the dynamic behavior of the high-rise building subjected to wind action. The acceleration becomes a limiting criterion in designing such structure which can be categorized as the comfort criteria of the building. Nausea and...

Differential vertical shortening (DVS) is the relative vertical shortening between two adjacent vertical load bearing elements. DVS originates because axial loading conditions on- and the design of adjacent vertical load bearing elements are different. Due to these differences, the reaction of the adjacent vertical structural elements expressed...

The topic of this graduation project is the design of an adaptive fabric façade for a high-rise in Paris. The stimulus for this choice was the turn of nowadays towards lightweight materials and constructions, a trend that is growing tremendously. Glass façades always remain popular and are frequently used in all kinds of buildings. For instance,...

Zero energy high rise buildings aim for a more sustainable urban environment, by reducing energy use demand, producing energy from renewable systems, but at the same time maintaining high thermal comfort levels. This research aims to implement a new integrated strategy, by means of an integrated optimization of various design variables of a high...

In Rotterdam underneath the first load bearing sand layer is a layer of compressible soil, called the "Kedichem" layer. Under this layer of compresible soil is another load bearing sand layer located, at approximately -50m NAP, but most of the buildings in Rotterdam are foundated on the first loadbearing sand layer at approximately -23m NAP. Due...

With the Netherlands moving more and more towards a circular economy, stricter waste management policies and regulations demand developments in the household waste separation sector. The more household waste that is collected in separate fractions, the more waste that can be reused or recycled into valuable material again, rather than ending up...

Cooling load reduction for high-rises is a necessity for further developement for the densification of urban areas. This study describest the approach for HVAC cooling reduction potential for tall-office buildings in Singapore. Via passive ventilation strategies and adaptive thermal comfort the comfort temperature is increased what leads to a...

Dealing with waste in a proper way is part of the shift from a linear to a circular economy. Sorting waste is an essential step in the recycling process. Making households sort their waste is a challenge. Rotterdam is one of the lesser performing municipalities of the Netherlands. In general, high-rise households sort their waste below average,...

Back to Nature focuses on finding ways to integrate nature with architecture in order to harness the positive effects of nature on the human psyche. As such psychological theories on restorative environments, neurological theories on the stress response and architectural theories concerning the sensory systems are combined to create a...

By using Ladybug and Honeybee for Grasshopper, the energy production potential of high rise envelopes was investigated. Together with a technical design and the formulation of a flowchart strategy for energy production on high rise, an answer to the question ‘How can high rise envelopes be utilized for energy production?’ was sought after. The...
