This paper presents the design of a lab-scale silicon nitride photonic crystal lightsail, demonstrating the LightSailSim software package. LightSailSim, an open-source analysis pipeline, integrates a custom mechanical solver based on a particle system model with optical simulation results. The resulting design balances dynamic and structural...

This project aimed to develop a biodegradable material that communicates its sustainability to consumers through its aesthetic attributes and to apply this material to shoe design.<br/><br/>In the current market, most biodegradable shoes do not express their natural origin through their appearance (tactile and visual properties). For instance,...

Climate change is the main global concern today, triggering a transformative shift in several sectors, especially the construction industry. High carbon emissions during Portland cement (PC) production necessitate a gradual shift toward more environmentally friendly alternatives, such as alkali-activated materials (AAMs). AAMs offer a promising,...

Symbiosis Unearthed proposes a renovation design for three postwar flats in the 'Westelijke Tuinsteden' of Amsterdam. The aim of the project is to transform the outdated flats into a regenerative, symbiotic community by improving the existing architecture, adding two storeys, and introducing communal functions to the site. The landscape is an...

Wire arc additive manufacturing (WAAM) can create large parts, due to its high deposition rate. WAAM can be used to create functionally graded materials (FGMs) such as a strong core of high strength low alloy (HSLA) steel and corrosion-resistant cladding of austenitic stainless (AUS) steel. However, HSLA and AUS steel are dissimilar metals with...

Designing lightweight aircraft parts to improve fuel efficiency is crucial to meet the aviation sector’s goals of reducing CO2 emissions. However, it is also important to ensure that these lightweight parts have a lower CO2 footprint over their entire lifetime. Previous studies have successfully achieved this using topology optimization and low...

Cyanobacteria are photosynthetic microorganisms found in a variety of environments, including marine water bodies. Some species are able to perform biomineralization, producing minerals such as calcium carbonate (CaCO3) that may act as biocement. The biomineralization capability of cyanobacteria has already been explored in the development of...

This project presents a response to the pressing issue of women's safety in public spaces, particularly in Latin American cities. Women worldwide are disproportionately affected by safety issues and fear in urban environments. I explore ways in which public spaces can enhance perceptions of safety and freedom instead. Based on extensive four...

The building sector is a big contributor to environmental problems. It is responsible for the extraction of 24% of earths raw materials, it generates 40% of total waste and 40% of the total energy use comes from the built environment. The building industry focusses on production rather than lifespan, leading to materials not being separable....

The growing consumption of fossil energy resources increases greenhouse gas emissions (GHG). To meet the industry sector's target of reducing GHG emissions by 49% in 2030, relative to the levels in 1990, there is a need for energy storage. Energy storage offers a potential solution to enhance the utilization of renewable energy, by addressing...

Background: Despite over a century’s worth of technical improvements, the longterm survivability associated with orthopedic implants continues to fall short. In contrast to earlier designs, implant failure is no longer caused by structural failure of the implant itself. Rather, it results from the implant’s long-term detrimental effects on the...
