Selecting the optimal stability framework for high-rise steel buildings is a critical decision that impact both economic efficiency and sustainability. This decision is not easy since there are many stability frameworks to choose from, such as tube, concrete shear-wall, and outrigger system. Designers and clients aspire to compare multiple...

Purpose:<br/>Given the urgent need to decarbonize the building and construction industry to prevent a catastrophic climate breakdown. The United Nations has called for action from industry leaders to drastically decrease their carbon footprint, and bring it to zero by 2050 at the latest. Efforts to decrease operational carbon emissions...

In the early conceptual stage of design, novice designers and professionals experience different levels of fixation. Design tools and workflows can support designers to explore creative opportunities. Patent data tool for engineering design purposes is one example, using the design-by-analogy method to facilitate divergent ideation. This work...

Most products require a redesign to be viable in a circular economy. For instance, by implementing design for disassembly, remanufacturing, recyclability, and using long-lived components. Typically, different solutions can be chosen to improve a products' circularity, and different strategies can be aimed at keeping the product, its components,...

Recent studies have focused on data-driven methods for building energy efficiency, by using simulated or empirical data, for energy-based design assessment rather than the common physics-based techniques, which are mostly time-consuming. In this paper, the feasibility of using seven different Machine Learning models, including three single...

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...

The maritime emission regulations and incentives require and motivate the selection of different types of energy systems, fuels, and abatement options. In early-stage ship design, the design space of possible combinations can be significant. Therefore, a selection tool has been developed to find the most satisfactory combination of abatement...

Niño Romero, David (author)
During the early stages of the construction process of a building, the potential impact of design decisions is at its greatest. One of the reasons is the lack of computational tools at these stages. The main objective of this research project was the expansion of StructuralComponents by the development of a parametric real-time computational...

The prediction of structural vibrations in vibration sensitive laboratory structures is a complex problem involving computationally heavy 3D models with long computational times. However, in the early design phases of a project long computational times are undesirable. Therefore the problem statement of this Master thesis concerns the...

The laws and regulations regarding the radiated noise and the on-board noise of the ship are expected to be stricter in the future. There is a big concern in this field, especially for the underwater noise. The radiated noise from the ship is harming the life of the underwater mammals while the on-board noise is threatening the health of the on...

Sustainability concerns are in all sectors’ agendas, and building industry is not an exception. Sustainable design should both, reduce the environmental impact caused by buildings throughout their life cycle and positively contribute to people’s well-being by addressing and being adaptable to their needs. There is the need for an early design...

In large sport’s buildings, a big part of energy can be saved by providing natural instead of mechanical ventilation. However, additional challenges arise while controlling airflow and temperatures in different zones. These measures<br/>highly depend on the shape, construction and ventilation openings, which are mostly decided in the early...

One of the most dangerous events that can occur on an offshore topside structure is an explosion. If blast analyses is performed without taking plasticity into account, then it may lead to very conservative design. On the other hand monitoring the weight by optimising the structural design is an important design aspect of such structures....

This study presents a digital architectural design tool named “Fuzzy Layout Planner” that helps architects create two dimensional sketchy footprints for their design. The purpose of the tool is to extend limits of early design thinking. It uses fuzzy modeling techniques to adapt the ambiguous design phase. There are several commands in this...

The paper describes the development of a set of smart BIM components to facilitate and accelerate the creation of large-scale urban models in the early design phase in a BIM software environment. The components leverage the analytical, parametric and modelling capabilities of the BIM environment to support adaptive parameter-driven building...

Jambak, M.I. (author)
Large amounts of data, information and knowledge are used during a design process. And it is proven from past researches that the absence of context is one of the reasons of the difficulties of utilizing data, information and knowledge in a design. This research work explored the concept of context that has been used in various domains and...
