Currently, most of the modular building can be fabricated off-site, except for the stability system. Therefore, the question arises: Could modules be designed such that there is no need for an additional stability system? As modules are typically built in a rectangular shape, incorporating stability elements such as bracings along the longer...

To address the increasing housing demand in Europe and simultaneously tackle the challenge of creating a more sustainable construction industry, timber modular buildings present an innovative solution. However, before multi-storey modular buildings become a widespread practice, various engineering challenges need to be addressed. Ensuring...

The transverse stability of timber terraced houses can be provided by CLT stability walls where decoupled timber terraced houses are preferred to meet acoustic requirements leading to rather large thicknesses for the CLT stability walls and many large connections for anchorage to the foundation. The main goal of this research was to investigate...

The Netherlands is grappling with a substantial housing crisis, marked by an estimated shortage of 380,000 houses. To address this issue, an annual creation of 100,000 new housing units is deemed necessary. However, the current construction rate stands at only 70,000 houses per year, indicating a considerable gap in resolving the housing crisis....

The historic canal walls of Amsterdam, stretching 200 km in total, are constructed as a masonry wall on a timber deck supported by vertical timber piles. Understanding the resistance against lateral failure of these quays has been challenging due to uncertainties in their working principles, geometry, soil and structural properties. This...

Post-earthquake structural damage shows that out-of-plane wall collapse is one of the most prevalent failure mechanisms in unreinforced masonry (URM) buildings. This issue is particularly critical in Groningen, a province located in the northern part of the Netherlands, where low-intensity ground shaking has occurred since 1991 due to gas...

This research addresses the environmental impact of foundations in lightweight housing units, focusing on BAM's timber house concept, FLOW. While the engineered timber superstructure is environmentally conscious, the foundation's contribution is often overlooked. The study aims to minimise the Environmental Cost Indicator (ECI) of FLOW houses by...

This research addresses the challenge of climate change and air quality, focusing on the construction industry's impact in the Netherlands. The construction sector, a significant source of air pollution, necessitates sustainable practices for mitigating the effects of climate change and reducing pollutants. The study emphasises the need for...

Summary<br/><br/>Numerous ancient historical constructions worldwide depend primarily on an extensive array of wooden foundation piles, as they are subject to loading conditions governed by the superstructure above. Wooden foundations transfer loads through a combination of compression and lateral resistance. The inherent strength of wood...

From a global perspective, the building industry is one of the significant factors of environmental impact on the planet. Related activities in this industry refer to 40% of total carbon emissions; 28% of this value accounts for building operations, while the remaining 12% represents the manufacturing of new construction materials. Studies have...

Masonry structures occupy a significant share of the current building stock due to widespread material availability and cost-effectiveness. Regions with high seismicity, like the Himalayas, have typically developed local seismic culture over the centuries. This has led to improved construction techniques providing an enhanced seismic performance...

This Master Thesis research is carried out to investigate the most efficient re-mountable timber car park in terms of feasibility and structural performance. Applying the re-mountability principle with a sustainable material like timber is important to help the construction industry tackle environmental problems like global warming. Specifically...

The demand for timber buildings is rising because of the need to make the construction industry more sustainable. Eurocode 5 provides guidance in the design process of timber structures. Numerical modelling is generally used for complex structures like multi-storey timber buildings. Currently, there is limited understanding of the serviceability...

With the building and construction sector accounting for a significant portion of final energy use and emissions, and society’s increasing focus on environmental awareness and improvements, the impor- tance of sustainable construction has never been greater. The utilisation of timber in construction offers clear sustainability benefits and has...

The recent developments in the building industry to build more sustainable should result in the use of light constructions with a low environmental impact. Timber is a suitable material for this purpose. To reduce the environmental impact of a building, an improvement in an often used structural element can have a significant impact on the...

This research is rooted in defining the marginlands of Istanbul; comprised of the city’s backstages, cracks, and fissures. It proposes an intervention along the historic margins of the city’s Land Walls, now swallowed by urban sprawl and existing as an interstitial inner-city threshold. The lands of such margins harbour an air of latency, having...

The challenge of global warming is an increasing concern of the 21st century. The concept of sustainability is therefore considered of high importance. A major problem of the Dutch government is the growing housing demand. Also after the WWII, the Netherlands faced a housing crisis, resulting in about 847,000 council houses. The massive number...

The sustainability of the building industry and the increasing demand for new buildings creates an opportunity where materiality and adaptability of the build environment needs to be reassessed in order to answer to the following issues. The research paper delves into the subject of adaptability in the built environment and checks the influence...

There is a significant problem with how we conceive our built environment, the traditional nature of the construction industry lags in innovation compared to nearly every other industry. As a result, the industry is unable to quickly respond to changing social, environmental and economic contexts. Requiring new methods of construction and ways...

This Master Thesis is an attempt to address the lack of a sufficient number of affordable and qualitative student housing by creating an experimental, universal design strategy called MODULE+, combining computational design and modular architecture. The strategy consists of three main elements - individually designed flexible timber modules, an...
