Improved productivity and a higher level of sustainability are modern day challenges faced by the building industry that are currently being and could further be solved by a higher degree of automation. Freeform architecture is still in its infancy but the demand for it is growing. Reusable building elements are a rarity in freeforms. This...

Algorithmic differentiable ray tracing is a new paradigm that allows one to solve the forward problem of how light propagates through an optical system while obtaining gradients of the simulation results with respect to parameters specifying the optical system. Specifically, the use of algorithmically differentiable non-sequential ray tracing...

In this work, we consider how to optimize an optical system, specifically one with diffractive optical elements (DOE). We start by describing optical theory called Fourier optics also known as wave optics. This type of optics is found by making assumptions from the Maxwell equations for magnetic and electrical fields. This leads us to the...

This project aims to recreate intensity patterns using Fraunhofer diffraction as a means of simulation. These intensity patterns are created by phase shifting specific parts of an incoming field of light. These phase shifts are determined by a B-spline surface, which is in turn controlled by so-called control points. Only a handful of control...

There exist a lot of methods to find the electromagnetic field behind a lens, so called the forward lens problem. In contrast very few methods can do the inverse, namely finding a lens that would produce a given image or light distribution for a known source. Here a solution to the forward problem, the Fraunhofer approximation, is used to find...

Due to global population growth and industrial development, there is a rising demand for energy. It is desired that this demand is met in a cleaner and more sustainable way. Among the various renewable energy sources, solar power is experiencing remarkable growth throughout the world. To ensure that solar power can be a sustainable solution for...

The project site is located on the main street of the TU Delft campus.The building consist of adaptable and<br/>interactive housing integrated with public and semi-public studying and working spaces. The hybrid of the<br/>working spaces mixed together with housing was chosen due to the increased number of people working from<br/>home and the...

Eventually either the oil and gas supply will be exhausted, or society will develop methods to rely completely on eco-friendly energy sources. What will then happen to the oil industry and their factories and structures? In this hypothetical situation, offshore drilling rigs, structures made of billions of euros worth of steel and concrete, will...

Menduiña Fernández, Alvaro (author)
Nowadays space missions rely heavily on optical payloads to carry out a wide range of tasks including earth observation, weather monitoring, astrophysics research and communications. Until recently, the design of such systems was done according to design principles such as rotational symmetry as it simplifies the theory, reduces technological...

This research paper is a TU Delft Master’s thesis for graduation track in the field of Building Technology. Its main theme, digital manufacturing of reinforced concrete structures, has already been studied/researched by many other enthusiasts; but they adopted approaches mainly based on the digital production of formworks or 3D printing of...

Topology optimization is the natural counterpart of additive manufacturing, many believes that the technology could revolutionize the way we manufacture our everyday products, changing the way we design and manufacture our products considering of how the process mimics the nature system of manufacturing and design, so-called the biomimicry...

A composite textile reinforced concrete (TRC) material is developed to overcome the difficulties of constructing double-curved freeform structures. This is possible by shear-deformation of the woven reinforcement. It affects the direction of reinforcement and thickness, resulting in variable orthotropic properties over the surface. The research...

Smidt, D.M. (author)
This research is twofold. Firstly it treats the complexity of design using a computational intelligent method to achieve, with regard to a limited set of goals, high performing designs. Secondly, an architectural and structural challenge to conceptually design a freeform roof framework, which integrates structural rigidity and non-standard...

The assignment for this thesis was to develop a new visual product feature that is uniquely producable by additive manufacturing (AM) methods. In the first phase of the project the field of additive manufacturing was explored and the visual properties of products were studied. The most important finding here was that some AM technologies are...

This paper discusses the effect of intentional deformation of a flexible formwork after casting of the concrete and the influence of the characteristics of concrete in the fresh state on the quality of a concrete element. This deformation is intended to bring the concrete element in its desired final shape; the deformation typically takes place...

Schipper, H.R. (author), Janssen, B. (author)
The manufacturing of double-curved precast concrete elements is still expensive, due to the high costs and limited possibilities for repetitive use of the moulds or formwork. The goal of the research described in this paper is to develop a production method that overcomes these difficulties by enabling the mould to be reused many times and by...
