Vahstal, Frank (author)
In the light of climate change and environmental challenges such as a nitrogen crisis, a decreasing biodiversity and waterlogging, the Dutch government is trying to build 900 000 homes by 2030 while aiming for a reduction of 55% of CO2 in the construction industry. Biobased topping-up of existing tenement flats is proposed as a solution to...

In this paper, mode II fatigue crack growth properties of the composite-to-steel interface are characterised through different test configurations, namely ENF and 4ENF tests. Different loading types including force control and displacement control methods are compared. An innovative shear strain based method is proposed for monitoring the...

This study addresses the critical need for specialized risk identification practices in green retrofit projects within the construction industry, particularly under the increasing pressure to meet the EU's net-zero emissions target by 2050. Focusing on the Netherlands, it investigates how companies navigate the unique challenges posed by...

This work aims to infuse theoretical knowledge of queer space to further the understanding of the history of luxury retail stores. It analyses certain spaces of a metropolis inconspicuously connected to the history of fashion, by taking three Parisian boutiques of influential designers in the belle époque as examples of the origin of maison de...

Hybrid bi-material concepts in engineering structures where fibre-polymer composites are used together with steel structural members have potential to reduce material usage, extend fatigue life and improve structural reliability. The bond performance of the bi-material composite-to-steel interface is of crucial importance and highly relies on...

(re)Displaced in City explores the link between architecture and human rights concerning newcomers’ (refugees, asylum seekers and irregular migrants) marginalization and degrading treatment in Paris. A specific focus is drawn on newcomers who have limited or no resources and are “trapped” in the complex bureaucratic system that limits access to...

Aviation activity results in around 5% of global climate impact, for which both the sources and the manner to improve through technology, operations, and policy need to be better understood. Therefore, a Scenario-based assessment through AirClim is done, assessing future efforts and their support for the Paris Agreement goals. The baseline...

Wrapped composite joint is an innovative technique which connects steel hollow sections through bonding such that the fatigue performance is improved compared to welded joint. In this paper, a DIC-based method of monitoring surface strains is proposed to quantify the debonding crack propagation within the composite wrap layers during high cycle...

This article compares how state-initiated mass housing urbanization has contributed to processes of peripheralization in three very different historical and geopolitical settings: in Paris from the 1950s to the 1990s in Hong Kong from the 1950s to 2010s and in Mexico City from the 1990s to the 2010s. We understand mass housing urbanization as...

This paper evaluates the capabilities of the recently developed CF20 cohesive fatigue model, which can predict crack initiation as well as the rates of crack propagation by relying on intrinsic relationships between a stress-life diagram and its corresponding Paris law. The model is validated here using a partially reinforced double...

Reliable assessment of the fatigue resistance of asphalt pavement with a long-term service is critically crucial for the rational formulation of original pavement utilization strategies in reconstruction and expansion projects. Currently, the pavement performance evaluation indicators are mainly used to guide pavement preventive maintenance,...

Barentsen, Nout (author)
On April 15th, 2019 a devastating fire burned down Notre Dame de Paris and left the cathedral without its central spire and ancient gable roof, better known as The Forest. The required reconstruction initiated a global debate between architects, engineers, and other stakeholders. The discussion was put to an end by the French authorities, who...

Westerbeek, Karlou (author)
Throughout history, Paris has always been a city of walls. The differences between the wealthy core and the poor periphery are increasing rapidly. The Boulevard Périphérique, Paris’s concrete ring road, is the spatial and symbolic manifestation of the imbalance between the city and periphery. The ring road works as a mobility bottleneck at the...

This thesis is about reconstructing historical vaults with cast glass. The vision is to design a complete dry-assembly cast glass arch vault where the Notre Dame de Paris is the chosen case study. The main question is: To what extent can a historical masonry arch vault be reconstructed by using cast glass components? The method is based on...

Increasing impacts from disasters and climate hazards have prompted international efforts to promote the development of national disaster risk reduction and resilience (DRRR) strategies intended to reduce mortality and other losses. The development of such strategies is the subject of target E of the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk...

De-carbonization to restrict future global warming to 1.5 °C is technically feasible but may impose a “limit” or “planetary boundary” to economic growth, depending on whether or not human society can decouple growth from emissions. In this paper, we assess the viability of decoupling. First, we develop a prognosis of climate-constrained...

In this two-fold exploration of escapism and architecture and architecture of limits, the persona of the Recluse is used as a personification of the relation between man and architecture and the architect and man. The main character was constructed by the author, but based on the book ‘A man asleep’ by George Perec. Through this persona, the...

The thesis is focused on Paris and the notion of power, prevailing in the city. It is more particularly looking at the experience of control felt within it and how it is possible to design in resistance to this particular aspect.<br/>The graduation was developed along different methodologies and themes of interest. <br/>The research, set at the...

van Bergeijk, Coen (author)
With the constant urge for progress that characterizes our society, there are bound to be some casualties. Disused and forgotten by the people not immediately involved with them, post-industrial areas are often left vacated and are quickly falling into ruin. Old factories, empty shopping malls, abandoned villages and creepy hospitals litter the...
