Traditional approaches to noise barrier design often rely on outdated techniques and resource-intensive materials like concrete and steel. However, with sustainability gaining prominence, aligning noise barrier design with green construction principles becomes crucial. Structural optimization, aimed at minimizing material usage, emerges as a...

Energy use, CO2 emissions, and waste production are all significant causes of environmental issues. The building sector is a major contributor to these problems, specifically the manufacturing of (structural) steel elements. Application of reuse and/or remanufacturing, as done in a circular economy, will reduce these effects. Therefore, these...

In this paper, optimization of vascular structure of self-healing concrete is performed with deep neural network (DNN). An input representation method is proposed to effectively represent the concrete beams with 6 round pores in the middle span as well as benefit the optimization process. To investigate the feasibility of using DNN for...

Concrete, as the most widely used construction material, is associated with a high environmental impact. Within the present study, structural optimization is the method of choice to counter this issue. The entire process, from optimization, to design, experiments and numerical simulation is outlined. Embedded in the framework of a design...

Patient-specific implants offer a host of benefits over their generic counterparts. Nonetheless, the design and optimization of these components present several technical challenges, among them being the need to ensure their insertability into the host bone tissue. This presents a significant challenge due to the tight-fitting nature of the...

One of the main cost drivers of an offshore wind power plant are the support structures of the wind turbines, it is therefore of primary importance to optimize their design. Among the support structures available, the concept most widely adopted is the monopile-based support structure, whose design is often fatigue-driven. Offshore structures...

In an urban context that needs to be constantly adapted to global crises, population movements, climate change and economic crises, designers and engineers strive to configure solutions that respond to multiple criteria. Within this framework, the concept of generative design is gaining more and more ground in the construction field, allowing...

Due to the growing quest for renewable energy, wind turbines grow in size. This means that higher demands are posed on the transporting structures, also called tower grillages, which brings its challenges for their design. The fact that the structures considered in this thesis are placed on a ship makes the design even more complicated....

This paper presents BIOS (acronym for Biologically Inspired Optimization System), an object-oriented framework written in C++, aimed at heuristic optimization with a focus on Surrogate-Based Optimization (SBO) and structural problems. The use of SBO to deal with structural optimization has grown considerably in recent years due to the...

The distribution of multiple materials within a single structure is a strategy that various biological systems rely on to achieve outstanding mechanical performances. These biological examples illustrate the effective utilization of hard rigid and soft flexible materials in particular. The proper composition of such hard-soft materials exceeds...

The aim of this thesis is to investigate and quantify the efficiency of high capacity self-stabilising modules in mid-rise residential buildings. These modules have a higher stabilising capacity than modules that are currently being used in the Netherlands and other countries and can therefore be used for more storeys without requiring an...

The orthotropic steel deck (OSD) is a deck system applied regularly in steel bridges all around the world. It consists of a steel deck plate which is stiffened by structural elements placed in two orthogonal directions. The deck plate can be used as an integral part of the structure, causing OSDs to achieve a high material efficiency and...

The COVID-19 pandemic had a significant impact on the aviation industry with more than 60% reduction in the passenger traffic in the year 2020 compared to year 2019. The passenger traffic which is now expected to reach the 2019 level only around the year 2024 will still continue to grow but at a lower pace compared to the pre pandemic levels....

As of writing this thesis little research has been done in truss layout optimization for multiple design alternatives. A hybrid scheme is proposed in which the fast gradient-based search of the Ground Structure Method (GSM) is employed for the search of optimal topology and size, while a population-based meta-heuristic algorithm explores the non...
