Ventilation events are the result of masses of air being transported from the water surface along the hull, through the propeller plane. Previous research in literature has shown that ventilation induces large and sudden variations of the load on the propeller. The response of the propulsion system had not been documented before. This is a...

Rising temperatures due to climate change and the increased Urban Heat Island (UHI) effect both have a major impact on Singapore’s outdoor comfort. Research has reported an average UHI in Singapore of 4°C, which can even exceed 7°C at some times of the day. (Acero & Ruefenacht, 2017) Increasing convective surface heat transfer from the human...

As the city of New York densifies, the post-democratic state grows its roots deeper into the bedrock. 90% of buildings in Manhattan are built without public review, and outdated zoning laws no longer protect the city's public assets, alienating the public and further widening the gap between rich and poor. The Manhattan Forum is a public/private...

This project aims to develop tailored non-invasive ventilation (NIV) masks for children in the Paediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU), to offer suitable masks and to improve the NIV intervention. In the PICU, there is a preference for NIV compared to invasive ventilation, because of complications, such as airway injuries. Their biggest challenge...

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...

Desigrate’ is designed to serve as a façade component of office buildings. Therefore, the building technology aspect of climate, façade detailing, and façade assembly is thoroughly discussed, optimized and evaluated to provide a product which acts efficiently as a cooling system and enhances the insulation of the building. Hence serving as a...

High-rises are usually ventilated mechanically in order to ensure thermal and acoustic comfort in the indoor environment. Consequently, the energy consumption in summer months is increased while the indoor air quality is usually deteriorated due to poor maintenance of mechanical ventilation systems. The topic of the current thesis is the design...

The practice of almost any sport requires friendly and comfortable environmental conditions, cool temperatures and medium humidity levels, as well as satisfactory lighting and ventilation performance (Torsing et al., 2016). The complex challenge of designing sport infrastructure is likely to become even bigger in the expected future warmer...

The objective of the thesis is to reduce the cooling load of the offices in Delhi, India by integrating passive strategies and low-ex cooling (evaporative) technology through facades as a decentralized ventilation system. The cooling demand in India is going to increase up to 8 folds by 2030. Almost 50% of the energy is spent on space cooling...

When propellers are operating near the free surface,  phenomenon called ventilation might occur. Due to insufficient immersion and high thrust loading, the propeller draws air, resulting in a reduced thrust. Reduced thrust may have consequences such as loss of propulsive power, control and steerability, and may therefore be...

Residential housing has to become more sustainable to meet global energy goals (Silvester et al., 2017), yet the challenge is to integrate the refurbishments that reduce energy with the way people live. The context of this project is the 2ndSKIN project, which refurbishes houses to become zero energy. Zero energy houses are more airtight as a...

To reach the European Union climate targets of 2020 the rate of refurbishment must increase. The problem is that there are many barriers to refurbishment, which causes a low rate and low quality. The objective is to overcome these barriers and stimulate facade refurbishment. This thesis looks at the improvement, that can be made when replacing...

The problem of premature births is widespread throughout the world affecting 41000 newborns daily; the issues that follow, often related to breathing, require the use of mechanical ventilation to compensate for the poor compliance of the respiratory muscles of newborns. However, side effects associated with artificial ventilation, including...

There is a 95% certainty that human activity is the dominant cause of observed warming since the mid-20thcentury [1]. Burning fossil fuels for energy is the dominant cause of greenhouse gas emissions. 32% of the Dutch energy supply is consumed by the built environment. The façade is the largest area of the building envelope. Consequently, the...

The project is an elderly housing in Heerlen, the Netherlands. Since the elderly are vulnerable to climate change, It's aimed to offer them more options of social interaction by providing suitable climate for different functions. The rich climate hierarchy corresponding to spatial hierarchy is the key. Instead of common interior and exterior...
