To align with the objective of the European Green Deal [46] policy of achieving net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050, the construction sector must transition to a circular built environment. Most of the waste in the Netherlands is related to construction and demolition waste, with the industry accounting for approximately 35% of CO<sub>2<...

In pursuit of cost-effective and sustainable space access, Dawn Aerospace is pioneering innovative launch systems. Their focus lies on a semi-reusable, two-stage-to-orbit launch vehicle, designed for horizontal take-off and landing. While current launch vehicles rely solely on rocket propulsion, the potential of airbreathing engines on the first...

The development of reusable launch vehicles in space exploration is a significant paradigm shift in the aerospace industry. Among numerous approaches to fully reusable launchers, a flyback booster, complemented by the emerging importance of spaceplanes, stands out as a viable solution. To outweigh the drawbacks associated with the cost, a...

Mismatched architecture is defined as architecture whose current situations don’t match their original settings during transformation. This mismatch manifests itself as a mismatch in form, function, and context, among others. Mismatched architecture is a self-adapting process of architecture and society, it gives us an insight into the...

The building sector is actively researching and reviewing technical solutions for de-construction, driven by the increasing importance of sustainability requirements, as outlined in the EU Commission's ‘Green Deal,‘ which aims to achieve net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050. Two key research areas in efficient structural design strategies...

The technical solutions and design strategies for deconstruction are reviewed and investigated in the building sector in order to achieve the sustainability goals set in the EU Commission´s “Green Deal” towards net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050. The demountable and reusable steel–concrete composite structures could contribute...

Observing that the majority of SSTO programs failed due to the propulsion system being far ahead of its time. Furthermore, acknowledging the that the private launch markets is increasingly dominated by partly reusable TSTOs. This thesis aims to evaluate whether next generation rocket engines make an SSTO viable within a foreseeable economical...

The construction and waste industry would move towards applying Circular Economy (CE) strategies, to meet the circular ambition of the Dutch government before 2050. In order to accelerate this transition, it is necessary to explore and adopt more innovative and sustainable solutions within the construction and waste sector. A small amount of...

This graduation report describes the design of a new suitable menstruation product for Beppy that collects blood, is reusable, has a similar (deployable) size and function as a tampon, and which is perceived as less intimidating to insert and extract than a menstrual cup. The new design, the Beppy Clover, is made from silicone and has Nitinol,...

Bipolar electrosurgical vessel sealing is commonly used in human and veterinary medicine. This method of vessel sealing is often preferred over traditional suturing or clipping of blood vessels because it comes with the advantages of reducing intraoperative blood loss and operation time. Most bipolar vessel sealers are disposable. The high costs...

The significant adverse contribution of the construction industry to greenhouse gas emissions and natural resource depletion has to be reduced. Regarding jetty platform structures, this challenge can be faced by designing for reusability, a promising concept for environmental impact reduction. However, this principle is not yet being widely...

Due to global warming, in the construction sector there is aimed for a transition towards the circular economy. The past years, many utility buildings were demolished, consisting of a concrete structure. This results in concrete rubble which is often down- or recycled. For new construction projects, new concrete elements will be produced....

We are currently facing a transition of economy. Previous years were focused on a linear economy, consisting of the make-waste concept. The products that are made with raw materials are thrown away after its use. Unfortunately the Earth does not contain an unlimited source of materials and we need to focus on reusing materials. Concluding to...

In current LCA studies, the environmental footprint of transport processes is calculated using the weight of the product and the distance travelled. This cannot be considered accurate for returnable packagings that reduce in volume when empty. The weight of the freight as well as the number of trips needed varies and is not taken into account in...

In a constantly evolving urban environment, it is important that we design structures with future adaptability in mind. Bridges for example can have very long life spans, but within their life span their use might change or even become obsolete. Disposing of the bridge, which can still be in perfectly good shape, would be a terrible waste of...

The renaissance of reusable space launch vehicles that is being witnessed in the current space industry demands a new cost estimating approach, which takes into account not only the time dependency in the lifecycle brought upon by reusability, but also the complementary considerations of minimizing cost and reliability. To achieve this end, a...

Smoking tobacco and physical inactivity are key preventable behavioural risk factors of cardiovascular disease (CVD). Computerised coaching systems can help individuals to modify risky behaviours, thereby preventing CVD. However, most reported eHealth or computerized coaching systems are hard to reuse in slightly different settings. To provide...

The demountable and reusable steel-concrete composite structures contribute immensely at the sustainable development in construction. The main technical practice which allows for demountability and reusability is the use of demountable shear connectors in their floor systems. These demountable shear connectors can satisfy the need for composite...
