The buildings construction industry is demanded to reduce its ecological footprint to mitigate its contribution to climate change. In this context, a novel sustainable design strategy for the reuse of timber was developed in this Master thesis. The design strategy focuses on the utilization of the material “reclaimed timber” (RT) in the...

Dynamic behaviour often is a topic of concern in the design of pedestrian bridges. It is time-consuming to assess and little is known about the way it is influenced by the characteristics of a bridge. In many cases, a bridge needs testing after is has been finished to determine the specifications of a damper. <br/><br/>Striving to reduce the...

The following work focuses on giving an appreciation of gridshell performances at an early stage of design. It has per goal to implement a tool that will orient the user toward a set of possible “best performing” designs. The aspects of interest in this trade-off exploration are the global warming potential, time of fabrication and construction,...

Environmental noise has become a large health concern in Europe with at least one in five people exposed to levels considered harmful to health. Additionally, prolonged exposure to excessive levels of noise has a negative economic impact.<br/>The rapid development of urban areas makes the effect of noise pollution even worse. However, architects...

In the near future, pressure on sustainability requirements in building structures will increase further as governments around the world are forced to tackle climate change issues. The construction industry is one of the most resource intensive and wasteful sectors in the world and is estimated to keep growing at a fast pace due to growing...

This thesis project features a design method of an automated warehouse in an insect rearing system, where pallets are transported from storage to a feeding machine and back into storage. From seven material handling equipment concepts, the most promising concepts are selected through a combined expert panel evaluation of 7 criteria and a basic...

The motivation of the thesis relates to designing grid shells over existing buildings. Grid shell roofs are a way to enclose an existing space structurally efficiently and have minimal interference with the surroundings from an architectural and environmental perspective. The solution results in less material usage than shell structures, and...

This research introduces the concept of Universal Prefab (UP), a highly modular building system which uses only prefabricated elements to realise building designs. The discrete structural elements are connected with a standardized connection throughout the entire structure that allows for quick assembly, increasing the efficiency of construction...

The infrastructure industry currently deals with two issues: the deterioration of (highway) bridges, and the urge to reduce emissions by the construction sector. Rijkswaterstaat must repair or replace hundreds of bridges in the upcoming decades. At the same time, the impact of human behaviour on climate change becomes more visible and must be...

Hamelijnck, Max (author)
This master thesis' main objective is to develop a parametric design tool which improves the design process and explores the building typologies of a hybrid modular timber construction based on global and local structural requirements. The hybrid modular timber construction is core-less and combines load-bearing and corner-supported modules. The...

The thesis focuses on developing a workflow that utilizes an interactive flexible mold as a means of designing and fabricating freeform surfaces. The focus will be on automating a flexible mold (Re-De-Form) and use it to study and fabricate freeform surfaces. Currently, the technology associated with Re-De-Form can produce complex surfaces with...

The Dutch government has set the goal to disconnect all houses from the natural gas network that runs through our country. This to decrease emissions and meet the goals set in the Paris Agreement in an effort to halt the global mean temperature increase. To provide heat to the houses they will need to be heated with electric energy. This heating...

de Gaaij, Joris (author)
There are two main challenges in the construction industry: carbon emissions and densification in cities. Timber high-rise might prove as a suitable solution to both these challenges. However, there is a lack of implementation of timber high-rise. This research argues that a lack of thorough analysis of timber design alternatives in the...

In 2017, 1610 million kg of waste wood was collected in the Netherlands. The building and demolition industry was, and still is, the most significant contributor. The estimation is made that in 2017 23% of this wood, 370 million kg, consisted of solid waste wood. This solid waste wood has the potential to be reused as a building material without...

This report describes the design of a wrist protector for professional soccer goalkeepers. This project was part of the master’s thesis for the TU delft and has been performed in collaboration with Norbert Alblas and the Fieldlab UPPS. Due to the increasing intensity of the game, injuries are becoming more common among goalkeepers. These include...

The aim of this research is to make the early design process more efficient. This is done with a parametric model, which compares high-rise stability systems. The research is focused on the stability systems shear walls, core, outrigger and tube. All systems are executed in concrete cast-in-situ, in the range from 100 to 250 m. The parametric...

Hospitals fulfill an important function within the healthcare systems, providing complex and specialized care. Healthcare continues to evolve into more effective forms of care and thus benefiting those in need. While care changes the physical hospital rarely does, resulting in hospital architecture which leaks the quality to contribute to and...
