This research investigated in which ways the material environmental impact of the main load-bearing structure of a high-rise building can be reduced. To determine this material environmental impact, the shadow price for each material and product has been determined by using ten environmental impact categories. One of these categories is global...

High-rises are usually ventilated mechanically in order to ensure thermal and acoustic comfort in the indoor environment. Consequently, the energy consumption in summer months is increased while the indoor air quality is usually deteriorated due to poor maintenance of mechanical ventilation systems. The topic of the current thesis is the design...

The aim of this paper is to design a retrofit façade-integrated cooling system for built high-rise residential public housing buildings in the tropical climate and evaluate its feasibility. Literature research into the climate, building design, cooling technologies and case studies of façade-integrated systems were important factors that led to...

Recently, there has been a growing interest in the energy performance of high-rises, in order to increase their energy-efficiency. The graduation project focuses on the facade design of high-rises, studying the potential for a nearly Zero-Energy high-rise office building in the Netherlands, according to the BENG requirements. The research...

This study analyzes the impact of the facade design on the energy performance, daylight and thermal comfort of residential high-rise buildings in temperate climates, with the help of energy simulations. The advantages of different facade design strategies are assessed based on the Cooltoren building in Rotterdam by V8 Architects. The aim is to...

The sustainability of high-rise buildings is always a point of debate and doubt in current research and literature. Several studies have been performed about the zero-energy potential for skyscrapers, however taking into consideration single functions, particularly office and housing buildings. Realistic and modern tall building design however...

Currently, the City of Rotterdam is far from achieving their ambitious 2020 goal of a 40% household waste separation rate. In 2017, their separation rate was only 28,4%. Household waste separation is important to enable the recycling of resources. For high-rise buildings, the challenge is the biggest: high-rise buildings produce an average of...

This thesis focusses on the application of vertical profiled mortar connections in precast concrete shear walls that are built up with a stacked element configuration. The goal of the project is to develop a practical modelling approach in order to be able to apply the connections in a FEM model for structural analyses. For this purpose several...

The assignment is commissioned by BinBang, a company with the mission to save as much waste as possible from the incinerator. BigBang’s focus is on improving the waste separation approach of municipalities, consumers and companies, through their products, and basically by coaching the citizens. In high rise areas (HRAs) in the Netherlands,...

In the past decades Mumbai has experienced a huge increase of citizens who, drawn by the economic opportunities of the big city, come to Mumbai for chances of a better life. The city is struggling with the effects that this has on the city. A big part of its population reside in informal settlements, living under impoverished circumstances. This...

The demand for sustainable high-rise buildings is growing. Such sustainable high-rise could be realized by the use of mass timber for the structural design instead of more conventional building materials such as steel and concrete. Timber is a renewable resource which can be CO<sub>2</sub> neutral if reforestation takes place to close its carbon...

This thesis research focusses on the development of a reliable and efficient 3D calculation model of an existing high-rise, reinforced concrete building in the Groningen area, in order to analyse the dynamic behaviour of the existing and subsequently retrofitted main bearing structure of this high-rise building. The assessment of the existing...

High-rise buildings are a potential solution to the environmental impact caused by the built environment and the increasing demand for space in urban areas. As recent developments focus on reducing the impact by operational energy (OE) (heating, cooling, hot water and ventilation during use phase), impact by the embodied energy (EE) (production,...

The city of Amsterdam is facing a housing shortage and according to the future population prognosis, the problem is going to become more severe due to growing immigration numbers. Following Brexit, Amsterdam, along with other European cities are competing to attract the biggest share of potentially relocated businesses and organisations from...

The trend of the slender and high-rise building has made the structure prone to dynamic loading. This thesis is focused on the dynamic behavior of the high-rise building subjected to wind action. The acceleration becomes a limiting criterion in designing such structure which can be categorized as the comfort criteria of the building. Nausea and...

Differential vertical shortening (DVS) is the relative vertical shortening between two adjacent vertical load bearing elements. DVS originates because axial loading conditions on- and the design of adjacent vertical load bearing elements are different. Due to these differences, the reaction of the adjacent vertical structural elements expressed...

The topic of this graduation project is the design of an adaptive fabric façade for a high-rise in Paris. The stimulus for this choice was the turn of nowadays towards lightweight materials and constructions, a trend that is growing tremendously. Glass façades always remain popular and are frequently used in all kinds of buildings. For instance,...
