It is well known that for tall cylindrical structures under wind action, such as wind turbine towers, vortex induced vibrations (VIV) may occur. During the installation of offshore wind turbine towers there are different stages of transport where we might deal with VIV. The main objective of this thesis is to explore the possibility of modeling...

The bicycle tour, more than any other sporting event, is fundamentally dependent on the landscape. The landscape has been used not only to challenge the peloton physically but also as a visual background for the event that has been broadcast worldwide. Tour of Ireland was first organised in 1953 as a part of An Tóstal, an Irish cultural festival...

Since the economic crisis there is a shortage in both dwellings and offices. As a reaction on this the building consists out of dwellings and office spaces for internation orientated companies and expats. By combining dwellings and offices, the building will be used 24/7 with which the building will be used in an efficient way.

Social housing for refugee families focussing specifically on three aspects:
1. Designing suitable housing for families within the typology of the gallery flat,
2. Designing for refugees: social and spatial needs of this target group
3. The multicultural floor plan: what can different dwelling cultures add to the standard Dutch...

Vortex Induced Vibrations (VIV) is a well-known and explored topic. It is a quite complex phenomenon as it is part of different disciplines including fluid mechanics, structural mechanincs, vibrations and computational dynamics. It can be found in many engineering applications such as bridges, industrial chimneys, transmission lines, marine...

Assuming that cars in the near future will be fully electrical and capable of driving autonomously with or without any human on board. This resulted in two main topics in the research, architectural changes and ability to add to sustainability of buildings with these future cars. The conclusion was basically that we can reduce uses space of a...

Citizens in 2050 will face a scala of mental health problems. Future unemployment caused by automation of jobs will evoke the lack of feeling a purpose or feeling useful for society. This will especially be the case for the lower-educated and less wealthy part of the population. Living in a city that will get denser and denser, the population...

The adoption of optimization algorithms has been slower in conceptual design compared to the later design phases. The choices made during the conceptual design phase have a large impact on the performance of the result. This research aims to find out why it is so hard to use optimization in conceptual design. Then a method is proposed to solve...

Over the past decade, wind turbine towers have grown taller and wider to support high capacity turbines. It may, therefore, be prudent to investigate materials alternative to steel to mitigate an increase in tower mass, cost, and complexities in transportation & manufacturing associated with the steel towers. The current research focuses on...

Vedado is the western modern city grid part of Havana, soaked in a history of entertainment, casinos and mobster money which was halted by the "Triumph of the Revolution" in 1959. Currently a slumber town due to it´s lack of public space and social space which precludes a lot of Cuban activity which traditionally takes place in the public sphere...

Cost is a design driver in any commercial business, and this is not different in the wind energy industry. The potential of cost savings on wind turbine towers through lightweight composite designs has been shown. However composite grid stiffened and lattice structures, which were shown to lead to significant weight reductions in aerospace...

High inefficiencies in transport networks due to low utilization of transport modes, incurring unnecessary costs and burdens on the environment, are motivating companies to increasingly cooperate in logistics with companies from the same or another value chain. Although multi-company cooperations are likely to create benefits for the cooperating...

Vacancy in high-rise office buildings has over the last decade become an increasing problem in many cities around the world. Within Europe, the problem is especially true in Netherlands with over 7 million square meters vacant as of 2012. Current solutions to this issue involve conversion to residential spaces, updating and upgrading the office...

Johnstone and Coleman (2012) were among the first to opt the idea of wind farms with mixed tower heights and predicted an increased power production due to the decrease of losses to TKE production from the mean kinetic energy balance. In the current study, the performance of infinite wind farms with alternating tower heights imposed by a...
