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....

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...

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...

Throughout history, human progress has been defined by the mastery of materials, transitioning from stone and bronze to the steel age. However, this progression has not only been defined by the materials utilized but has also encompassed a shift in processes, moving from the industrial to the information era. Despite the advances in fabrication...

GitHub is the home of hundreds of millions of Open Source Software(OSS) repositories where users collaborate on projects and find inspiration for new ideas. Some of these projects have certain build configurations set up to make building, testing, and deploying the software more time-efficient and less error-prone. However, setting up the...

The circular economy is an economic model in which resources are circulated in a closed loop by adopting the R-strategies (e.g. reuse, recycling, and reduce) to minimize waste and pollution. Repurposing vacant buildings, known as adaptive reuse, is in line with the principle of circular economy, as it contributes to the reuse of the built assets...

In the light of climate change and environmental challenges such as a nitrogen crisis, a decreasing biodiversity and waterlogging, the Dutch government is trying to build 900 000 homes by 2030 while aiming for a reduction of 55% of CO2 in the construction industry. Biobased topping-up of existing tenement flats is proposed as a solution to...

Urban Energy Modeling (UEM) provides a comprehensive approach to urban planning, helping to create sustainable, resilient, and energy-efficient cities that meet the needs of current and future generations. The key inputs for UEM methodologies and tools are the geometry of the building stock and its thermophysical properties. In the Netherlands,...

This research attempts to develop a space in the city that, outside of the dynamics of consumption, but not denying the dialogue with the city, seeks to intertwine with its overlaps, by defining the public space of dialogue and representation. On the morbidity of performance and expectation, we might say that the contemporary Utopian intent,...

The recent housing market and social trends have changed the houses from large family homes to small single-dweller apartments. Although living alone does not necessarily mean that solo-dwellers are lonely, they are more at risk of social isolation which can result into loneliness. This resulted into the need for more community living. The...
