This research aimed to design a new bridge for the city of Rome, Italy, through the support of modern optimisation and decision-making processes that can be implemented to make informed choices regarding aesthetic performance, structural firmness, and environmental impact. The bridge’s design was carried forward considering the city’s plans for...

In the current breakwater design process, not all feasible concepts can be explored due to time constraints. However, designers are also influenced by breakwaters constructed near, or at the same location as their breakwater project. But also conservative assumptions influence the breakwater design process, for instance, regarding the wave...

During a previous research project, a parametric model for conceptual layout design has been developed. The model uses optimisation using genetic algorithms to approach the optimal breakwater layout for specific locations. <br/>The developed model serves as a successful proof-of-concept. In the model, several aspects of design have been...

Rising temperatures due to climate change and the increased Urban Heat Island (UHI) effect both have a major impact on Singapore’s outdoor comfort. Research has reported an average UHI in Singapore of 4°C, which can even exceed 7°C at some times of the day. (Acero &amp; Ruefenacht, 2017) Increasing convective surface heat transfer from the human...

During this project the possibilities of enriching the functionality of an Ankle Foot Orthosis (AFO) by implementing mechanical metamaterials are researched. The project is executed for Buchrnhornen, a company based in Eindhoven which has over 70 years of experience in manufacturing orthopaedic shoes and orthosis in a traditional way. Mechanical...

In the Netherlands, the building sector accounts for more than one third of the total primary energy consumption. In response, new regulations, BENG 2020, are implemented and applied to all new constructions as of the 1st of July 2020. Regarding the high-rise typology that is known for its extensive energy consumption, those regulations present...

Glass is a material which can be seen as a double-edged sword. Its monolithic, smooth, and transparent look transmits a sense of elegance and simplicity. However, due to its brittle mechanical property, it can create complex engineering challenges when intended for a structural load-bearing application. Many forget glass has a comparable...

This thesis aims to explore various possibilities in grid-structures by introducing atypical line geometries and examine its feasibility in a built environment. The proposition is derived from the larger purpose of adapting native design characteristics in modern built environment. Focusing on the Asian context, one of the essential...

This project is based around myself (student/young professional) and the need for a quality house after graduating, because the current housing demand of affordable high quality housing does not meet the availability. One cause of this problem is the rather old fashioned construction industry that cannot meet the required amount of housing units...

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...

The Netherlands is currently in the process of transitioning from a linear economy to a circular economy, in accordance with the ”Nederland Circulair 2050” policy. To increase the circularity of buildings, several approaches can be integrated. In this research, the so-called Design for Deconstruction and Donor Structural Framework concepts are...

Sustainability is an important aspect in the construction industry nowadays and therefore timber is interesting to use as it is considered a sustainable building material. With the development of mass timber engineered products such as glued and cross laminated timber, there are more and more possibilities to use timber as a structural element,...

Heineken's goal with respect to safety is to reduce the number of accidents to zero. Such a drastic reduction can only be achieved by considering safety as early as in the design phase, when most impact can be made. Therefore, the purpose of this research is to enable the easy generation of different design concepts and evaluate them with regard...

his project is a reflection on the Bauhaus and its possible implementation 100 years later in current society. Most importantly a response on the educational system of the master and how current technologies can be found translated in architecture. Through a research on the Bauhaus educational system and contemporary educational systemz, the...

The increasing number of vehicles does not stop, axle loads get higher and wheel contact surfaces have decreased causing bridges to show significant fatigue damage. Demolishing and building a new bridge is out of the picture due to the current ideas on sustainability and environmental impact. Therefore renovation is necessary, as much of the...

In this research project, an attempt is made to fuse the fields of structural mechanics and machine learning. The goal is to find out if models can be created that are capable of predicting the outcomes of (nonlinear) finite element analyses. These models are created by means of Artificial Neural Networks, which is a powerful method in the...

Currently the transport &amp; planning (transport &amp; logistics) group from Royal HaskoningDHV makes their pre-design for steel orthotropic bridge decks by using rules of thumb and experience. In the final design-stage this is verified whereby the force distribution is checked with the help of 3D finite element software (FEM). In this stage...

During the early stages of the construction process of a building, the potential impact of design decisions is at its greatest. One of the reasons is the lack of computational tools at these stages. The main objective of this research project was the expansion of StructuralComponents by the development of a parametric real-time computational...

This speculative project named “Bridging Heterotopia” is named as such because it draws from the guiding principle that is juxtaposition in real space, of many spaces together that would normally be incompatible. This principle materializes through a bridge which will be a facilitator for different cultures in Rotterdam to find a common space....
