For decades the idea of re-usable software has been seen as the holy grail of software development. But up until recently, there was more discussion about software re-use than actual software re-use. Even though most software uses the same blocks of code over and over again, almost all software is built from the ground up. Today, this situation...

Recent years have seen a drastic increase in the number of small satellites launched per year, as these systems weighing less than 1000 kg have become less expensive alternatives to obtaining scientific data compared to satellites weighing multiple tons. A current drawback with these systems is their price to orbit, often reaching over $100k ...

This thesis ‘A decision support model for analysing the reuse potential of hollow-core slab floor components’ describes the development of a decision support model to investigate the reuse potential of a structural building component. For this research, the hollow-core slab floor component is chosen as the structural building component to be...

Reusable rocket stages is a trend in launch vehicles that have been observed for some time now. Even reusable upper stages have been seen in the Space Shuttle, Kistler K-1 and now the SpaceX Starship. This thesis is on the development of a genetic optimisation algorithm to determine the economic feasibility of upper stage reusability. Genetic...

Context - In the construction industry of today, buildings are seen as finished products rather than ongoing processes. The business model of facades as a product service system is a promising strategy to change these practices. A pilot project at Delft University of Technology sparks the interest of Alkondor Hengelo, to explore their tasks and...

Today, society is becoming more and more aware of the environment and the (negative) influence we have on it. Especially the current workings of our economy have a detrimental effect on the environment. To reduce these effects, a transition is being made towards a circular economy. The construction sector plays a big role in the degradation: in...

Sustainability concerns steer the construction sector towards adopting a circular economy philosophy. Steel-concrete composite beams are extensively used in multi-story buildings and bridges due to their competitive construction and efficient material use. Currently the composite action is mainly achieved by headed shear connectors welded to the...

There is currently increasing interest in making a transition towards a circular economy, to improve resource efficiency and to reduce harmful emissions to the environment. The European Union adopted a Circular Economy package in 2015, while the Dutch government introduced a programme to achieve a circular economy by 2050. The construction...

In most emergency outbreaks a huge amount of people flee to refugee camps and are in need of protection, shelter, food and medics for an unknown amount of time. The duration of their stay depends on the pace of the war or natural disaster. The UNHCR (United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees) has been utilising a variety of solutions to...

Traditional quay wall structures are not very flexible, because they are often hard to adapt and to reuse. However, changes in the container shipping market, international conflicts and new generations of vessels are some examples that could drive the desire the relocate or adapt quay wall structures. The objective of this thesis is to design a...

Recent advances in importance-weighted active learning solve many of the problems of traditional active learning strategies. But does importance-weighted active learning also produce a reusable sample selection? This thesis explains why reusability can be a problem, how importance-weighted active learning removes some of the barriers to...

In the field of video surveillance, a large problem is often the acquiring of video feeds of specific scenarios as test or training data. Even if privacy and safety concerns are not taken into account, it is often much cheaper to generate a virtual scenario rather than record one using real cameras, especially when the camera placement was not...

It is foreseen that the future expansion of the Port of Rotterdam will face the problem of lack of space. A typical Dutch solution to create the necessary area for harbour and industrial terrain, is reclamation of land from the sea. This can be achieved by expanding Maasvlakte I with Maasvlakte 2. The exact amount of required terrain is subject...
