In recent years, there has been a growing necessity for 3D geoinformation in urban planning and infrastructure management to provide a more realistic representation of urban areas and the built environment. A key concept in public infrastructure management is Life Cycle Asset Management (LCAM), which aims to improve the decision making in each...

The Harvested Home is a housing concept that completely eliminates non-renewable materials form its structure and envelope. It was developed specifically for the touristic island of Texel in Noord-Holland to be used in the re-development of one specific camping area near De Koog. More specifically, the site chosen is located within the Dunes of...

Asset degradation and maintenance strategies are driving factors that cause the variation in life cycle cost (LCC) of infrastructure assets. In the railway industry, several researchers have analyzed the impact of the uncertainty on LCC, but the emphasis was laid on traditional ballasted tracks. Another type of track structure, embedded rail...

The main focus of this graduation project is on the transformation of the building industry within the self-built environment of slums towards a local, circular economy. To do this, it influences the building process, as well as the building materials and its production cycle. The currently highly polluting building industry has an influence on...

In this thesis a simplified vehicle model was developed using linear correlations between incidental power demand and energy usage at four different stages: 1) propulsion, 2) propulsion during braking, 3) regenerative braking, and 4) maximum regenerative power. In the model the efficiencies of: charging and discharging of the battery, the...

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,...

In de Paris Climate Agreement the goal is set to reach an energy neutral built environment by 2050. As a result, there is a high demand for energy neutral refurbishment of the existing housing stock. With the currently low refurbishment rate is it expected to take around 250 years to reach this goal. Due to the high initial investment costs of...

Life cycle assessment (LCA) has been the primary tool for the quantification and
comparison of the environmental impact of product systems. Despite ongoing
development of the LCA methodology, uncertainties are often not adequately
addressed in LCA research. The large variety of approaches to treat uncertainties and the lack of...

There is currently increasing interest in making a transition towards a circular economy, to improve resource efficiency and to reduce harmful emissions to the environment. The European Union adopted a Circular Economy package in 2015, while the Dutch government introduced a programme to achieve a circular economy by 2050. The construction...

Logistics plays an import role in e-commerce and so in the online grocery market. This research analysed different transport packaging solutions for the home delivery of dry groceries. Insights into the effects of several transport packaging have been gained. A case study has been applied to PostNL, to find the best alternative for the delivery...

The peace treaty of Colombia has promised to end over fifty years of armed conflict, which has been significantly financed by the cultivation and processing of illicit crops. The treaty contemplates a substitution policy that offers financial incentives and social investment to the coca-growing communities to replace their illicit crops by legal...

In this thesis we discuss a framework for life-cycle construction. For the construction of life-cycles we use mean-variance optimization. Mean-variance optimization is a portfolio selection method used to find a combination of asset classes that has an optimal risk-return trade-off. We choose the replacement ratio, the pension income as fraction...

The first quay walls were constructed in 2400 BC and were constructed with bricks. Since then, the quay walls have developed a lot. The quay walls nowadays are constructed out of steel, concrete or a combination of both materials. An upcoming material in the field of hydraulic engineering is fibre reinforced polymer (FRP). FRP has several...

This thesis provides a rationale to introduce the concept of labelled electronics in the European Union. This concept entails the improvement of e-waste recycling by equipping electronic products with labels for identification purposes. The common view in literature as well as the view of producers and recyclers regarding labelled electronics...
