Smart buildings are equipped with automated control systems that provide a comfortable indoor environment, aiming simultaneously at energy savings. Control systems for shading devices applied in practice are mostly driven by a rule-based approach, that is usually tested under simplified conditions and hence its effectiveness in complex real-life...

Earthquake-triggered fire domino scenarios (E-FDSs) arise frequently from the interaction between earthquakes and chemical installations, resulting in catastrophic multi-hazard coupling events. The complicated mutually amplified phenomena between natural disasters and chemical accidents significantly aggravates the escalation of domino...

An earthquake-triggered fire domino scenario (E-FDS) is an example of a typical multi-hazard coupling event. The seismic damage can affect the fire resistance of engineering structures, leading to significant mutually amplified phenomena. In this work, a two-stage experimental program is designed to expound the earthquake-fire coupling...

It is becoming increasingly clear that the effects of climate change should be decreased or even mitigated. Green alternative sources of energy are being explored, and wind energy emerges as an important option that can be exploited on a large scale. Wind turbines are placed more and more often offshore due to larger and more stable wind...

The present Master thesis explores the implementation of a glare-based control strategy for Venetian blinds in buildings with totally transparent facades. The case study concerns the Co-Creation Center, a building that hosts three different types of events: presentations, meetings and workshops. The diverse occupancy patterns, coupled with the...

This paper presents the results of an experimental campaign carried out to characterise the mechanical properties of multi-wythe masonry infrastructure in the city of Amsterdam. Samples were extracted from a 1.2 m thick bridge’s pillar constructed in 1882. For the characterisation of shear and compressive properties of masonry, tests on cores...

Launch vehicle structures, such as payload adapters and interstages, are increasingly designed and constructed using composite materials due to their high stiffness- and strength-to-weight ratios. Therefore, it is important to develop a validated finite element modeling methodology for designing and analyzing composite launch-vehicle shell...

To study the irreversible changes in the magnetic stray field surrounding a steel structure caused by impact-induced elastic and plastic deformations, a steel cylinder was repeatedly subjected to axial impacts of various magnitudes. Due to impacts that induce elastic deformation, the measured magnetic stray field of the structure converges to...

The usage of tanks has been quite common throughout the industry during the last decades. They fall into the category of shell structures and this is how they need to be studied. The focus of this thesis is concentrated on ground based thin cylindrical tanks filled with water made out of steel. Thin shells are susceptible to buckling, a...

Predicting the critical buckling load of cylindrical shells with circular cutouts subjected to uniform axial compression is an important part of the structural design in the aerospace industry as buckling significantly reduces the load-carrying capability of the structure. A cutout constitutes a major disruption in the shell geometry, and...

This paper introduces an analytical model analyzing the effect of groundwater flow on heat transfer in an infinite conductive-convective porous domain representing shallow geothermal systems with arbitrarily configured cylindrical heat sources. The model is formulated based on the moving source concept and solved based on the spectral...

Measuring the geometric imperfections in cylindrical shells is a critical step necessary to create accurate numerical models that can capture the imperfection-sensitive behavior of these structures. Modern composite structures, such as variable–angle filament–wound (VAFW) cylinders, have a unique imperfection signature that is still unknown to...

Fibre metal laminates (FMLs) are multilayered metal composite materials currently used in aeronautical structures, especially where fatigue and impact resistance are required. FMLs are produced in large panels and often require assembly using the drilling process for riveting purposes. Hole making is a critical machining process in the...

This paper introduces a spectral model for a moving cylindrical heat source in an infinite conductive-convective domain. This physical process occurs in many engineering and technological applications including heat conduction-convection in ground source heat pump systems, where the borehole heat exchangers likely go through layers with...

In this study, tests on cores and companion tests on triplets are compared with respect to the evaluation of the nonlinear shear-sliding behaviour of masonry, including the determination of post-peak softening response. Due to its slightly-destructive sampling nature and its good agreement with triplet results, the core testing method is...

In this paper, we investigate the heating function of the nasal cavity qualitatively, using a high-quality, large-scale statistical shape model. This model consists of a symmetrical and an asymmetrical part and provides a new and unique way of examining changes in nasal heating function resulting from natural variations in nasal shape (as...

Guidelines dating back 50 years, NASA SP-8007, are employed today in the design of thin-walled launch vehicle structures. Due to advances in materials, structural designs, and manufacturing techniques since the publication of SP-8007, the development of new knockdown factors for contemporary launch vehicle structures is an ongoing subject of...

Nowadays more and more people lose their home due to bad luck, like a divorce, a calamity in their dwelling or economic problems. There is no proper place for these people to go to, so with this design I wanted to make one. <br/>A family with children should be placed as easily as a single person, so flexibility is a mayor issue in this project....
