The imminence of anthropogenic climate change has motivated a global energy transition towards sustainable power generation. Offshore wind—an important contributor to the energy transition—is expanding, not only in turbine size and number of installations, but also into regions with harsher environmental conditions. One of those conditions in...

The main focus of this thesis is on a thin glass sandwich panel combined with a three-dimensional printed core pattern. The core pattern provides stiffness to the panel, but it also influences the daylight transmission. The goal of this research is to design a façade system which can dynamically improve the daylight performance, effectively...

Safety and reliability of aircraft structures are of main concern within the aerospace industry, preferably without influencing the availability of the aircraft and maintenance and operation costs. As damages in composites can be hard to detect, methods are being developed to detect damages which can potentially lead to a (catastrophic) failure...

This architectural history thesis examines the „Studentenhuis Weesperstraat“ (1966) in Amsterdam, designed by Herman Hertzberger (*1932) as a representation of his philosophy towards creating architecture. This being one if the earliest examples of Hertzbergers work, it serves as an accurate display of his meticulous approach to architecture...

Mangrove forests are highly valuable environments that offer numerous ecosystem services, including carbon storage, serving as nurseries for fish and shrimp, and providing timber. Additionally, these ecosystems offer coastline protection against erosion and flooding by attenuating waves and trapping sediment. Despite the crucial role of mangrove...

After the second world war two movements evolved as a reaction to the developments the war brought into society and built environment. The comparison involves the movements metabolism and structuralism both from the lenses of the protagonists of these movements: Kenzo Tange and Herman Hertzberger respectively. <br/>This thesis aims for an...

In the semiconductor industry, the minimumelement size has stepped into nanometer level. To keep the functionality of fabricated nanostructures, there is a huge demand of a technique that can provide non-destructive inspection and allow for in-line or in-situ monitoring during the manufacturing process. Optical scatterometry, which uses the far...

Concrete is the second most used material in the world after water and recent trends show no slowing down of the concrete use around the world. Concrete is also a huge contributor to CO2 emissions as it makes up 8% of emissions. This study investigates the optimization of concrete structures to reduce environmental impact while maintaining...

As far as a historic city is concerned, a city is a dynamic complex which consists of many different interrelated and interactive elements. It is unreasonable to assess urban heritage by using a single value category. The evaluation of urban heritage values needs to develop a theoretical framework to represent the relationships between different...

The offshore renewable energy market is rapidly growing, particularly in wind and solar sectors. The intermittent nature of these energy sources underscores the necessity for offshore energy storage solutions. Among the techniques being explored, Marine Pumped Hydro-Energy Storage (MPHES) emerges as a promising option. This innovative concept...

Metal–organic frameworks (MOFs) are a class of hybrid materials with metal-based inorganic nodes connected by organic linkers via strong coordination bonds. These building blocks can be arranged in 3-D crystalline lattices to synthesize structures with varying pore sizes and a variety of structures (tuneability). These hybrid materials possess...

The abstract outlines a study focusing on improving the design approach for flexible dolphins, vital marine structures used for vessel berthing and mooring. Current design methodologies, particularly those outlined in the CROW C1005 handbook (2018), are questioned due to potential conservatism stemming from insufficiently calibrated partial...

Flood risks and its consequences become more and more challenging and are demanding for the currently present dike systems and hydraulic structures in the Netherlands. This automatically raises the question for the possibility of adjustable temporary deployable flood defences that work autonomously. Nowadays it is more likely that a standard...

The need for better fuel efficiency within the growing aviation sector is increasing every day. Meanwhile conventional aircraft are reaching an asymptote regarding fuel efficiency and therefore the focus switches to unconventional aircraft. These aircraft have unique challenges whereof one is the structural connection between engine and aircraft...
