High-strength steel (HSS) has higher strength but lower ductility than mild steel. The cross-section of the structural members may be reduced using HSS instead of mild steel, provided the buckling of elements does not govern the failure. The reduced member size benefits the environment and economy by means of less energy consumption, less carbon...

Mangrove forests are important (sub)tropical intertidal ecosystems providing coastal protection and other ecosystem services like carbon storage and biodiversity. In view of the loss of these forests many rehabilitation projects have started, but unfortunately these efforts often fail. A main cause for coastal erosion is a disrupted (fine)...

This thesis report provides an analysis of the structural behavior of façades made of CLT panels with openings. These openings will have a significant influence on the transfer of forces in the panels, as well as the stiffness of the façade. The connections required to transfer the forces between the panels are designed. Deformations of the...

Timber high-rise buildings have been gaining in popularity. However, due to the low material stiffness of timber the stability systems of these buildings are often made with steel or concrete. To avoid this the material efficiency of the timber stability systems must be improved. The most material efficient stability systems for timber high-rise...

The importance of joints in timber structures is strongly emphasized in the existing literature (e.g., Blaß & Sandhaas, 2017; McLain, 1998). The aim of this project is to provide insight into whether the cross-sectional sizes of the member are dictated by the dimensional sizes of the laterally loaded dowel-type connection or the strength and...

Experimental research into the spalling behaviour of mortars and if it is possible to predict the spalling resistance. Research is divided into spalling experiments with varying parameters and experiments to analyse and characterize the pore structure. By combining both results, a first step is taken into a formula that is able to predict the...

Embedded load-bearing laminated glass connections have gained popularity in recent years due to their mechanical performance and aesthetic appeal. However, there is a paucity of data on their structural behaviour across a range of temperatures that may arise in building applications and there is also no simplified mechanics-based model for...

The design of pin connections between steel members has been established for many years in design codes. However, recently, in the scope of the revision of Eurocode 3, Part 1–8 (EN 1993–1-8), questions were raised concerning the safety of the corresponding design verifications. This paper identifies two main aspects that require revision,...

The development towards a circular economy has many hurdles to overcome. For the construction sector an important step in this process is the transition towards reusing structural elements. Prefabrication of elements is a significant step towards achieving this concept. However, a case where both prefabrication and reuse are limited is the...

Seismic events have shown the hazardous and expensive consequences resulting from seismic damage of non-structural elements. For this reason, the concern regarding the seismic performance of glazed curtain walls has acquired more relevance in the building industry; however, there is still a gap of information in the literature about this topic....

Demand for long-distance transport has been steadily increasing over the last years, worsening the environmental impact of the transport sector. Despite European governmental bodies and policy-makers directed considerable efforts towards the substitution of short-haul flights with greener rail alternatives, the desired results do not appear to...

Ongoing research in autonomous driving currently focuses on creating new applications for autonomous vehicles (AV) and connected autonomous vehicles (CAV). Specifically, motion planning and control solutions are being developed based on the combination of Artificial Potential Functions (APF) with economic Model Predictive Control (eMPC). These...

This thesis provides a set of cooperative control schemes for autonomous multi-vessel systems to manipulate a floating object through physical interconnections in onshore (inland waterways and ports) and offshore areas. Thanks to the maturity and popularity of the advancing technologies in information, communication, sensors, automatic control,...

Producing hydrogen from renewable energy sources will play a pivotal role in the energy transition. It can reduce emissions in hard-to-abate sectors and be used for grid balancing services. The energy industry is looking into multiple different system configurations to produce green hydrogen. One such system is an offshore stand-alone wind...

Bicycles have an important role to play in the transition towards a more sustainable mobility. In order to achieve the modal shift towards bicycles, more must be done to accommodate cyclists. Although controlled intersections do increase the (perceived) safety of crossings with motorized vehicles, they are seen as major obstacles, and cyclists...

Visual impairment is a global problem. In India, there are about 40 million visually impaired people, accounting for 20% of the world's blind population. However, the infrastructure and services to assist the blind are far from sufficient.there is a more important question before it, that is the blind people are not given enough attention in...

In Turkey, roughly 3000 children and adolescents are diagnosed with cancer every year (Kebudi, 2012). Although there are different types of pediatric cancers, their trajectory is similar and filled with various physical and psychosocial challenges for the patients and their families. Moreover, cancer usually causes a drastic life change for the...

In recent years, the increase in brain research led to the development of large-scale brain imaging techniques. With large-scale brain imaging techniques, such as functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), functional connectivity analyses have shown altered connectivity patterns in humans and mice with neurobiological disorders, such as...

Distributed systems are networks of nodes depending on each other. However, each network can have multiple faulty nodes, which are either malfunctioning or malicious. Bracha's algorithm allows correct nodes inside the network to agree on certain information, while tolerating a certain amount of faulty nodes. Nodes exchange Send, Echo and Ready...

Increasing digitalisation of society due to technical advancement has increased the appearance and size of cyber- physical systems. These systems require real-time reliable control, which comes with its challenges. These systems need reliable communication despite the presence of attacks or faulty processes and bad connections, which can disrupt...
