Policymakers and literature have expressed the need for a visual and tangible manner of mapping circular value, the progress towards a fully circular economy and the presence of materials (material passport) in public space. Several initiatives exist for the measurement of circular progress. However, none have explicitly aimed towards the urban...

Over the past decade, the complexity of operations in the port area has increased significantly. As global trade increased significantly, vessel sizes and cargo volumes surged, which places additional pressure on the ports' (physical) assets. Both the challenges the ports are facing and the willingness to ensure continuous improvement have...

The life cycle of a building has a tremendous impact on the environment. This is due to its energy demand, production and transportation of building materials, and its maintenance. Actually, the building industry is one of the most polluting industries that contribute to climate change. In the Netherlands alone, this sector is chargeable for 50%...

The project focuses on developing and implementing a 0D or 1D model for radial compressors and turbines, capable of both interpolating and extrapolating the performance maps. The proposed model will be calibrated using the data points available in the maps provided by the manufacturers to produce accurate mass flow for turbines and pressure...

The modeling method for the performance of positive displacement pumps of hydraulic pumps is based on collecting operational data of the pump for its operational envelope and using equations with empirical fitting parameters and fit these equations to the data. This way values for the fitting parameters are obtained, with which the equations can...

Maritime transport covers about 90%of world trade and is seen as one of the most cost-effective way of transporting goods. In order to safely accommodate vessels calling into ports, tugs are operated to assist various sized vessels with navigating, manoeuvring and berthing. Competition within the ship handling market has always been fierce....

Philippine low-income housing is uncomfortable since it is not built to deal with the hot and humid climate in a passive way. Since local vernacular architecture is known to have a good climatic responsive performance, the aim of this research is to learn how Philippine vernacular design strategies can improve thermal comfort for low-lying, sub...

This thesis is about improving the workflow for applying the Performative Computational Architecture (PCA) framework to sun shading design. The PCA framework is a design approach consisting of three phases; form-finding, performance evaluation and optimisation. The conventional workflow in regard to sun shading design is defined as a combination...

The project takes the increasingly polluted and flood prone coast line of the Scheldt estuary as the basis for a new coastal condition, centred on the re-composition of the sediment of the river. As a third option between dike raising and depoldering the coastline of Zeeland, a design for a new line of defence is<br/>developed which controls the...

The built environment consumes 50% of all raw materials, 40% of the total energy and 30% of the total water, in the Netherlands. As climate change looms over and threatens our physical environment, the EU and consequently the Dutch government has proposed multiple stringent regulations to curb our unsustainable resource consumption habits and...

Since the oil crises during the 1970s, there has been a growing awareness of thermal losses through windows in buildings. Nowadays, double-glazing is a common product for moderate maritime climate. In the Netherlands two permit requirements are calculations regarding nearly zero energy and environmental performance of a building. In order to...

Informal actors possess a practical knowledge of the city, a sort of ‘secret know-how’, of how to move and operate in an environment that is unwelcoming to them. How could this knowledge be used as a tool or input of urban design? By considering the knowledge and ways of operating of the informal actors in a city, the following research has...

This research paper was conceived having been introduced to performance art, becoming absorbed by it and believing in it’s potential for the architectural discipline. I saw the work of performance artists from the 50’s 60’s and 70’s as engaging in conceptual work which challenged ideas of the art object and process in the nowness of their events...

This thesis project aims to enable Bluerise to create a 3 [MW] plant for their OTEC system. The current model and lab setup used to create insight into the systems working mechanisms are based on a Kalina cycle configuration. This method uses a working fluid mixture of water and ammonia. After evaporation, the liquid and vapor are separated and...

In recent decades, gas production has caused numerous human-induced shallow earthquakes in the province of Groningen, The Netherlands. The buildings in this area were not designed for these unexpected earthquake loads and have shown to be vulnerable. However, current strengthening measures are considered to be time-consuming, expensive, and a...
