The average worldwide internet traffic demand in 2022 is projected to be over 1200 Terabits per second. A fifth of this data would be transmitted using mobile networks. One of the technologies used for this is radio frequency (RF) telecommunication, but this technology is reaching its limits. Despite ongoing development, typical data rates are...

Philippine low-income housing is uncomfortable since it is not built to deal with the hot and humid climate in a passive way. Since local vernacular architecture is known to have a good climatic responsive performance, the aim of this research is to learn how Philippine vernacular design strategies can improve thermal comfort for low-lying, sub...

The Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 2017 went to the development of cryo-electron microscopy, which contributed to the discovery of new cells and viruses, the diagnosis of unknown diseases, the mapping of human genomes and the manufacturing of semiconductors. Cryo Correlative light and electron microscopy (Cryo-CLEM), is the combination of using...

In recent years, Wire and Arc Additive Manufacturing (WAAM), is gaining attractions both from academia and industry, because it has the potential to substitute or complement the traditional manufacturing methods. Traditional materials and methods are reaching their limitation when demanding and special applications are considered.

The...

The air-conditioning of commercial buildings accounts for approximately 50% of the total energy consumed in India’s commercial sector. Reducing this load is a key step towards minimizing India's greenhouse gas emissions. One culprit is the routine use of fully glazed façades which are chosen for aesthetics but are neither energy efficient nor...

Piccioni, Valeria (author)
Growing concern about resource consumption in the construction industry has brought new challenges to the design of façades. Compared to traditional techniques, AM stands out for the possibility of fabricating complex geometries embedding multiple functions. This study explored how the potentials of Fused Deposition Modelling can be used to...

This thesis is about improving the workflow for applying the Performative Computational Architecture (PCA) framework to sun shading design. The PCA framework is a design approach consisting of three phases; form-finding, performance evaluation and optimisation. The conventional workflow in regard to sun shading design is defined as a combination...

Agriculture is an important sector to provide in our needs. Since 2000, the arable land per farmer increased with 66%. To help farmers managing their increasing amount of arable land, it is important to develop new techniques in example based on remote sensing data. One of the key parameters for agricultural management is the...

Energy consumption around the world increases by the day. The primary energy usage has risen with approximately 49% and the CO2 emissions with 43% during only the last two decades. The building sector in the Netherlands contributes for approximately 36% to this energy consumption and office buildings are one of the larger consumers (Rijksdienst...

Since the oil crises during the 1970s, there has been a growing awareness of thermal losses through windows in buildings. Nowadays, double-glazing is a common product for moderate maritime climate. In the Netherlands two permit requirements are calculations regarding nearly zero energy and environmental performance of a building. In order to...

The energy demand of horticulture is a large contributor of the increase in energy consumption. Today, thermal energy storage (TES) has a key role in improving the energy efficiency for both cold and heat storages for which phase change material (PCM) can be used. This thesis will be concluded by answering the main research question: ‘What is...

Sick Building Syndrome is present in 30% of all office buildings and can cause serious health damage over time. This is an era where sustainability and well-being are becoming dominant aspects of life. As a result, it is becoming increasingly important to businesses to invest in their employees' well-being and health. The VTTI group cares for...

The research of this thesis is focussed on the thermal insulation and structural properties of a thin glass composite panel with 3D-printed polymeric core.

Aluminosilicate glass, used in this research, is only 0,5 mm thick. This aluminosilicate can be used to replace current windows and structural façade element to reduce the use of...

The transition towards a sustainable energy system in the built environment is commonly referred to the incremental adoption of a variety of available technologies, practices and policies that may contribute to decrease the environmental impact, at reasonable costs and adequate quality standards. The complexity of the transition requires a sound...

Additive manufacturing (AM) is currently making a transition from mainly being used for prototyping to an alternative for conventional production methods. AM provides more freedom in design geometry combined with the possibility to produce (complex) products in low quantities. As a result, the need arises for printed parts with consistent...

Locating people inside buildings is still an unsolved problem. There is a lot
of research going on in this field and many different solutions using different
techniques have been proposed. However, there is no widely accepted indoor
localization solution like how GPS is for outdoor localization due to less accuracy, higher hardware...

The purpose of the thesis was to design a deployable thermal shielding baffle for the Deployable Space Telescope to reduce thermal gradients on the optical elements. As a result of a trade-off, the deployment was chosen to be based on an inflatable structure. The baffle consists of aluminium-kapton booms that form a cylindrical shape, and are...

The Deployable Space Telescope (DST) project aims at producing a competitive telescope by using segmented deployable light weighted optics which reduces launch volume and mass, and thus launch costs. Due to the criticality of heat management to the performance of the telescope, a thermal model had to be built in order to determine the expected...

With the global increase in passenger traffic and growing popularity of long-haul routes over the Asia Pacific region and Atlantic Ocean, the possibility for hypersonic transport could become an attractive option to reduce flight time over long distance from 16-20 hours down to around 4-5 hours. In this thesis, a Multi-Disciplinary Optimisation...

Whilst research in solar cell materials lead to higher efficiencies every year, new difficulties arise with every breakthrough to get an even higher efficiency. Therefore, every component of a PV system should be examined, as well as how their behaviour under operation affects performance to improve the overall PV yield. In particular the...
