This research has aimed to investigate the possibility of applying a neural network algorithm into the structural design process of bascule bridge leaves, by creating a workflow in Grasshopper. The demand for this tool, originates from the fact that the current design process is experienced as linear and slow, and does not fit the dynamic design...

The wrist is one of the most complex joints in the human body, comprised of multiple bones and ligaments, and capable of performing a variety of movements. Proper wrist motion relies heavily on the interplay between the carpal bones of the hand and its ligamentous connections, and when that interplay is compromised hand function can be severely...

Selecting the optimal stability framework for high-rise steel buildings is a critical decision that impact both economic efficiency and sustainability. This decision is not easy since there are many stability frameworks to choose from, such as tube, concrete shear-wall, and outrigger system. Designers and clients aspire to compare multiple...

This thesis investigates a novel load alleviation technique known as mini-tabs, small devices placed on the upper surface of wings to reduce lift. Reynolds-Averaged Navier-Stokes (RANS) simulations were conducted to analyze the impact of geometrical properties on mini-tab performance in reducing the load on a wing.<br/><br/>The initial...

This study aims to evaluate the impact of different urban building geometries (six courtyards, two canyons, two slabs) on heat mitigation and aircraft noise attenuation, in order to support an evidence-based retrofit plan for future airport neighborhoods. Using ’Pachyderm + ENVI-met simulations + field measurements’, we found that the slanted...

In response to the European Commission's initiative to shift freight transport from road to inland waterways, there is a need to expand the capacity of inland ports to accommodate larger cargo ships. This expansion requires lowering the water bottom, which will increase the forces exerted on the quay walls. The quay walls should therefore be...

Large parts of the Netherlands lay below mean sea level. An extensive network of flood protection measures is in place to prevent flooding. Periodic safety assessment and reinforcement are required to guarantee a resilient system. Currently, in the Netherlands, an extensive sea dike reinforcement program is underway to meet the safety standards...

When designing products like bicycle helmets or oxygen masks, achieving a good fit is crucial for optimal functioning, usability, safety, and comfort. Integrating anthropometric data in the development and design of products, workplaces, and environments whilst understanding the variations in anthropometric measurements amongst users will...

FRP is increasingly utilised in the built environment, following successful implementations in the aerospace and marine industry. However, it exhibits poor stiffness and stability compared to conventional materials such as steel, making it challenging to satisfy serviceability and comfort requirements. Optimising FRP to address these challenges...

The aviation industry confronts challenges from increased air traffic and environmental concerns. Enhancing engine efficiency becomes crucial due to persistent greenhouse gas emissions from air travel, particularly in long flights with high CO2 emissions. Higher by-pass ratios (BPR) can address this by boosting engine propulsive efficiency, yet...

Rocha, Randy (author)
Due to population growth we need more buildings, but due to urbanization there are hardly any opportunities to densify in highly concentrated cities. While we inevitably need more buildings, we have to also take into account that the construction industry is one of the major contributors to climate change. In order to prevent further damage on...

The bending stiffness of a structure is highly dependent on its shape, and this relation can be utilized to allow for a structure to morph into different shapes during deformation. This paper focuses on shape-morphing into multiple shapes (Multi Shape-Morphing), and presents a design method for a parametric<br/>structure consisting of beams,...

Amid global climate change challenges, the construction industry faces an urgent  transition from a linear production model to a Circular Economy (CE). Initiatives  and recommendations in Dutch transition roadmaps and literature predominantly  focus on ensuring a future circular built environment, while lacking concrete...

This thesis explores how parametric design can be used to enhance hospital architecture, with a focus on complex healthcare facilities. The thesis consists of a literature review that examines the theoretical foundations and current applications of parametric design in architecture. It also includes a case-study analysis of hospitals that have...

<b>Problem definition:</b> In the car park industry, a new trend has emerged, shifting the demand for parking from permanent one-of-a-kind parking structures towards temporary modular structures (Drenth, 2020). Meanwhile, the building industry faces a transition into a more sustainable industry. This requires rethinking of the design process,...

Increasing global parcel shipping volumes and just-in-time delivery force distribution centers to handle increasingly larger volumes of greatly varying parcel types. Automated material handling systems are essential to achieve these challenging requirements. A push divert sorter is one of these systems. This system uses a series of sliding...

In the construction of subsoil structures, a common challenge is the presence of a high groundwater level in combination with the absence of a naturally impermeable layer or an environment susceptible to settlements due to lowering the groundwater level. To overcome this issue, a building pit with an underwater concrete floor (UCF) can be...

Rijkswaterstaat aims to build circularly from 2030 onward, with the purpose of having a fully circular economy by 2050. Therefore, the aim of this study is to design a reusable modular superstructure, with a small span, which can replace an existing so-called volstortligger superstructure. This is a structure that Dura Vermeer often uses and it...

Over the last years the critical state of existing quay wall structures have gained a lot of concern. With the focus on urban quay walls in Amsterdam, a lot of aspects could play a role which limit the possibilities for both the design and the construction. The focus in this research is placed at the structural efficiency of the design for...

For the first time since the 1970s, concrete plans are in motion to bring humans back to the Moon through the Artemis programme. The dawning era of space exploration aims to set the groundwork for long-term off-Earth settlement, with sights on bringing the first humans to Mars. In order to provide a safe means of inhabiting extraterrestrial (ET)...
