During a previous research project, a parametric model for conceptual layout design has been developed. The model uses optimisation using genetic algorithms to approach the optimal breakwater layout for specific locations. <br/>The developed model serves as a successful proof-of-concept. In the model, several aspects of design have been...

The Netherlands is currently in the process of transitioning from a linear economy to a circular economy, in accordance with the ”Nederland Circulair 2050” policy. To increase the circularity of buildings, several approaches can be integrated. In this research, the so-called Design for Deconstruction and Donor Structural Framework concepts are...

Floating production units require to be permanently moored offshore. For shallow water field developments, typical designs include soft yoke mooring systems which is a single point mooring technology. Produced fluid is transported via a geostatic tower along the transfer hoses to the production unit. Single point mooring systems will weathervane...

The design of a container terminal is a process that goes through a number of phases. One of the first is the concept design phase, which is needed to make a first assessment of the project's technical and financial feasibility. This phase is exploratory of nature, because of the early stage in the design cycle and consists of several tasks that...

This research investigated how traditional foundations of buildings can become circular and thus contribute to a circular economy. The current linear take-make-dispose economy results in waste, exhaustion of finite natural resources and environmental degradation. A circular economy is one way to cope with these trends. This type of economy is...

TechnipFMC is pushing innovations to reduce the emissions of ethylene plants separations. This development is also driven by customer demands. They face increasingly strict legislation on \ce{CO2} emissions. Separation in distillation columns is one of the major energy intensive unit operations in an ethylene plant, and increasing their...

The aim of this thesis is to explore how designers can create well-being for all through product or service design. Well-being for all can be achieved through designing with the focus on Consumer Wisdom. Consumer Wisdom is defined as the pursuit of well-being for oneself and for others through mindful management of consumption-related choices...

To realize the shift towards a Circular Economy, products should stay usable as long as possible. Maintaining products is the most efficient way of retaining their desired level of performance. This is called Product care. Product care can be understood as any action that helps to prolong the lifetime of a product. The aim of this thesis is to...

This report provides an analysis of the consumer experience at the end-of-use phase of a product. The study in this report focussed on the consumer-product relationship: how this plays a role in the process of product detachment, and what this means for products at the end-of-use, with a specific attention for products in a circular economy.<br/...

The objective of this research project is to verify whether 3D printing of concrete (3DPC) reduces the environmental impact by increasing the structural efficiency. During the literature study, numerous articles were identified that claimed an increase of structural efficiency by using 3DPC to reduce material use. Some of these articles suggest...

Building Information Modelling (BIM) technologies are changing the conventional structural design process. BIM level-1 and level-2 are providing guidelines and frameworks for standardization with the standard Industry Foundation Classes (IFC) and collaborative design respectively. However, the predicted full potential of BIM, BIM level-3, which...

The common description of the configuration of stuff in a room, one of order (tidy) and chaos (messy), fails to explain the phenomenon that artifacts create structures around people and activities in a space, with both functional and cognitive properties. This form of organization, that is recognizable on various scale levels, emerges...

Two important trends can be witnessed in the world of superyachts. Firstly, the luxury landscape is shifting from collecting tangible assets to pursuing exclusive tailor-made experiences. The second trend is the electrification and the use of batteries on superyachts. Due to the increase of emission restrictions, there is more interest towards...

As traditional fossil fuels become scarcer and more attention is given to environmental impact of the combustion of fossil fuels, for next-generation aircraft, the focus of development will mainly be on reducing fuel consumption. Open rotor engines have the advantage over conventional turbofans that they are expected to perform 25% to 30% better...

The redevelopment of the Post Rotterdam building and, in particular, the design proposal of the vertical foyer initiated this research project. The foyer has a special design and as a result, a special analysis method has to be used. The desired material is steel, consequently stiffened steel shell structure was deemed the most appropriate...

The goal of this thesis is to investigate the effect of digital design media on the design process of the industrial designer, and the designing of physical objects. Thereupon an educational approach to the practice of shaping objects was developed, which integrates theory about creativity, design methodology, and the application of new...

The adoption of computation in the building industry has led to the development of a range of tools intended for design. Although commonly used for detailed analysis (FEA) and documentation (CAD/BIM), few tools address the needs of the early design stages for flexibility and quick, insightful feedback and documenting the justification of design...
