When writing functional code that composes multiple recursive functions that operate on a datastrcuture, we often incur a lot of computational overhead allocating memory, only to later read, use, and discard this information.<br/>This can be alleviated using fusion, a technique that combines these multiple recursive datastructure traversals into...

Postwar neighbourhoods, designed in the 1950s and '60s with the wijkgedachte in mind, have developed into unattractive environments. These areas are now defined by monotonous apartment blocks surrounded by vast stretches of grass and car-focused infrastructure. As a result, the quality of life has declined. This graduation project researches how...

Generative AI is developing rapidly and has shown great potential in generating and editing images with text prompts. It has achieved partial success in the challenging 3D model edits of common objects. However, there is a lack of attention in the building domain, which already faces certain limits in the 2D space. 3D building models automatic...

Circular procurement has been found unsuccessful in two-thirds of the cases. Literature indicates that Systems Thinking (ST) is required to boost the transition to a circular building sector. This study focuses on the Initiation and Definition (I&amp;D) phase of building projects. Currently several barriers impede the incorporation of circular...

The building industry's emphasis on cost-driven standardization has led to more waste, prompting a need for resource-efficient methods. While coreless-filament winding (CFW) with materials like flax fibers show promise, a research gap is present. This study explores how computational design, coupled with coreless-filament winding, can create...

The building sector's substantial environmental impact, responsible for 40% of total energy consumption and one-third of CO2 emissions globally, emphasises the urgency to enhance energy efficiency. While there are potentials for energy savings, there are still challenges that need to be faced. In particular, a significant ‘performance gap’...

Building-integrated photovoltaic (BIPV) façade systems introduce high-voltage ignition sources, carrying DC currents up to 1000 V, directly into façade structures, a hazard unprecedented in conventional façades. Despite this, the regulatory framework in the Netherlands falls short in adequately addressing the fire safety risks posed by BIPV...

Urbanisation has increased the worlds' cities populations and influenced the living conditions within these cities. Temperatures rise, the air becomes more polluted and noise levels increase. It has been proven that types of vegetation such as plants and trees can reduce the negative effects of urbanisation by for instance cooling cities,...

Continuous Integration (CI) has become a cornerstone of modern software development, gaining widespread adoption due to its ability to facilitate frequent and dependable code integration. However, its benefits are offset by high computational costs and energy consumption, particularly in the build phase. With its growing popularity, it is...

Mangrove forests are highly valuable environments that offer numerous ecosystem services, including carbon storage, serving as nurseries for fish and shrimp, and providing timber. Additionally, these ecosystems offer coastline protection against erosion and flooding by attenuating waves and trapping sediment. Despite the crucial role of mangrove...

The car is a demanding mode of transport. The small capacity, the limited daily use and the number of parking spots that are needed on different locations; at home, at work and other locations makes a vehicle a space-consuming object. Especially in cities, the number of cars effects the liveability, because they are prevailing on the streets. To...

Public participation in building projects in The Netherlands is something which really evolved after the Second World War. Architects had a utopian vision for the city of the future, but the general population didn’t find modernist designs attractive and became sceptic of modernist design. On top of that, the nation’s post-war values of anti...

The building sector is a big contributor to environmental problems. It is responsible for the extraction of 24% of earths raw materials, it generates 40% of total waste and 40% of the total energy use comes from the built environment. The building industry focusses on production rather than lifespan, leading to materials not being separable....

Given the building sector's significant impact on energy consumption and CO2 emissions, there is a clear need for a sustainable solution. Here, smart building technologies are emerging as a promising response, as they offer the potential to improve operational efficiency while reducing environmental impact. However, the development of smart...

Progress in Laser powder bed fusion manufacturing has led to greater use of Additive Manufacturing in combustion chambers/nozzles. This allows for the creation of more intricate and efficient solutions, but generates the need for a better understanding of how surface roughness in micro-channels used for engine cooling relates to build angle and...

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...

Bird strike simulations require accurate information about the nonlinear material properties of the bird and structure, dynamic changes in contact between bird and structure, and large displacements and rotations of the structural elements. The soft-body nature of birds allows it to flow fluidly upon impact, making accurate simulation validation...
