Portillo Arreguin, Diana (author)
This thesis examines the load distribution on 60 m long piles under gradual static loading, considering the POST Rotterdam high-rise building as the study project. The research employs fibre optic (FO) instrumentation on site to monitor strain changes in the piles over time and assess load transfer mechanisms. This data is integrated into a...

Unappreciated by the public, and ambiguous with its history, Brutalism has its followers, among designers and architects yet it is still a stylistic outcast. La tour de Droixhe, the high-rise at hand, thus, is seen not only as heritage but also as a lonely giant towering over the city of Liège, Belgium. This brutalist social housing development...

This thesis comprises of vertical deformation differences in high-rise structures where a concrete stability core is combined with a timber frame. The timber frame consists out of prefab timber modules which derive all lateral stability from the concrete core. Due to contrasting elastic, hygroexpansion and viscoelastic properties there is a...

Timber high-rise buildings have been gaining in popularity. However, due to the low material stiffness of timber the stability systems of these buildings are often made with steel or concrete. To avoid this the material efficiency of the timber stability systems must be improved. The most material efficient stability systems for timber high-rise...

In the field of structural and geotechnical engineering, a uniform approach to predict and model foundation settlements during the design phase of a high-rise building appears to be missing. In the Netherlands, pile foundations of tower structures underlain by compressible soil layers are challenging to model due to different stiffness and load...

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...

Population growth and urbanisation trends bring many consequences related to the increase in global energy consumption, CO2 emissions and a decrease in arable land per person. High‑rises have been one of the inevitable buildings of metropoles to provide extra floor space since the early examples in the 19th century. Therefore, optimisation of...

Richardson, Anthony (author)
A structural firm will not invest a large sum of money in early design fase on a wind tunnel aeroelastic model to determine the displacements, forces, and moments when the dimensions of a building have only been estimated because the outcomes are only valid for that specific model. It is well-known that the outcomes are hard to determine...

With the exponential growth of high-rise buildings in Rotterdam over the past decades the city is now the 10th highest city in Europe. The role that high-rise plays in the city of Rotterdam has been developing throughout the years and started becoming more important. Through literature and municipal archival research, the significance of high...

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...

Policy makers have set the goal to reach a completelycircular economy by the year 2050 in the Netherlands. This means that theconstruction industry should shift from its current ‘take-make-waste’ approachtowards a circular approach. The number of buildings of more than 100 m inheight are increasing in the Netherlands, due to...

This research investigated the determinant effect of public green spaces (PGS) on high-rise housing prices in Rotterdam. The growing population and tendency of people to gravitate towards city centers, have led to an increase in high-rise residential buildings in The Netherlands. It is therefore of high importance to optimize the integration of...

During the last decades, the development of high-rise increased quickly. The Eurocode is frequently used to make wind calculations for high-rise structures. To make those calculations, the dynamic wind load is simplified to a conservative equivalent static load. An alternative to calculate wind loads is a physical wind tunnel test. Wind tunnel...

Designing high-rise buildings is one of the complex tasks of architecture because it involves interdisciplinary performance aspects in the conceptual phase. The necessity for sustainable high-rise buildings has increased owing to the demand for metropolises based on population growth and urbanisation trends. Although artificial intelligence (AI)...

The Government of Dubai implemented Green Building Regulations & Specifications & Specifications (GBRS). In March 2014. Dubai has more than 1000 high-rise buildings in which more than 2 million residents are accommodated. However, 62% of the existing residential high-rise buildings dating from 1970-2014 do not meet the requirements of...

High-rise building optimisation is becoming increasingly relevant owing to global population growth and urbanisation trends. Previous studies have demonstrated the potential of high-rise optimisation but have been focused on the use of the parameters of single floors for the entire design; thus, the differences related to the impact of the dense...

Nowadays, the high rate of urban population growth due to immigration and scarcity of land has significantly increased the need for new high-rise dwellings. Meanwhile, the recent building regulations require buildings to be highly energy-efficient to reduce the building’s impact on the environment. However, the inherent characteristics of these...

Among the current targets of the building sector, one major goal is to maximize the resource efficiency (in terms of material use and in terms of energy used to produce the buildings); furthermore, the circular economy model aims for maximizing the reuse of the structural elements; thus, minimizing the material waste and avoiding a second...

Woestenburg, Geert (author)
Cities like Amsterdam and Rotterdam are located on top of a compressible clay layer. Most of the buildings in these cities are founded on the foundation layer above the compressible layer. Therefore this compressible layer can induce problems when the soil pressure increases significantly due to the weight of the high-rise buildings. This...

The demand for high-rise building has been increasing over the past decades which has induced new developments such as modular construction. Modular construction has advantages in terms increased speed, safer construction and less construction waste. Applying modular construction in high-rise however brings about great...
