The construction industry contributes significantly to global emissions. In response to the growing concern about climate change, new methods are being developed to reduce these emissions. Building with timber is one such approach, as it can be CO2 neutral if reforestation is practiced. Timber is a lightweight and flexible material compared to...

The paper deals with the specific approach to teach the subject of assessment and retrofitting of historical timber structures to students of various colleges in an integrated and multidisciplinary course. Timber structures belong to the oldest structures in the world and because of their specific susceptibility to ageing, often require a...

Buiksloterham, situated on the northern banks of the IJ river, is undergoing massive urban redevelopment as it transits from an industrial town to a mix-use development. However the lack of connectivity within the neighbourhood has become an ever more prominent problem for its growing residents and workers. Gemeente Amsterdam has proposed the...

A quay wall directly next to a building, both dating from around 1870, collapsed along the Grimburgwal in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, on 1 September 2020. The historic quay wall consisted of a masonry wall, built of a timber deck supported by several rows of timber piles of about 12 m long. As over 200 km of such quays exists in Amsterdam and...

The goal of this thesis is to research multi-purpose, re-usable timber structures as a step towards sustainable construction. To reach it, the work was divided into four parts. <br/>The project starts with an introduction explaining the motivations behind this work. It continues by grounding the problem in the context of major sports events....

Practical combinations of floor configurations and support conditions are studied for the development of a lightweight timber building method that is suitable for multi-family residential buildings. Classical vibration theory forms the base for a methodology that is developed to assess transmittance of vibrations to adjoining floor fields....

Background Consumption of materials is an always ongoing process. In the linear economy, or a ‘take-make-dispose’ consumption pattern there is no attention for the rest value of products. The circular economy and bio-based economy introduce that loop-back for materials at the end of their lifetime. This research is about the application of bio...

This paper discusses the long-term mechanical behaviour of timber-to-concrete joints made with dowel-type fasteners. Despite the influence that the long-term behaviour of joints has on the mechanical behaviour of a timber–concrete structure and consequently on its design, there is still a lack of research in this area. This paper presents...
