Differential vertical shortening (DVS) is the relative vertical shortening between two adjacent vertical load bearing elements. DVS originates because axial loading conditions on- and the design of adjacent vertical load bearing elements are different. Due to these differences, the reaction of the adjacent vertical structural elements expressed...

Offshore wind energy has very recently begun expanding into subarctic regions with seasonally ice-infested waters like the Baltic Sea. For offshore wind turbines with conventional support structures such as monopiles and jackets that are typically flexible and vertically sided, the phenomenon known as ice-induced vibrations can develop. In...

The growing importance of renewable energy to meet the demands of growing population has driven much focus for research in the wind energy sector. Currently most of the power production in the wind energy sector is done using the Horizontal Axis Wind Turbine (HAWT). due to its higher efficiency and reliability as compared to Vertical Axis Wind...

The vertical tail size of a multi-engine aircraft is typically driven by the directional control requirement during one-engine-inoperative flight. This results in the vertical tail being over-sized for most regularly occurring flight conditions. By adding thrust vectoring technology to an aircraft, the vertical tail can be designed to cope with...

Composite steel-concrete floor systems consist of a trapezoidal shaped steel deck, reinforcement and cast-in-place concrete. Depending on the span, height restrictions and application shallow or deep decks can be chosen. The shallow deck used within this thesis is the ComFlor75. Due to the low self weight, a bundle of steel decks can be lifted...

The presence of vegetation has proven to increase peoples well-being and has multiple other benefits. Unfortunately, there is a lack of green in urban areas. Three solutions exist which could reintroduce green in cities and have a low footprint: green roofs, green facades and living wall system. Living wall systems are visible from street level...

Living wall systems are not applied on a large scale, even though they offer multiple benefits to buildings. They are able to improve the air quality, the insulation values or social and psychological benefits. The aim of this Thesis is to increase the application of living wall systems by designing a living wall system with the principles of...

An ever-increasing demand for electricity pushes the wind energy industry to deep waters that favor floating concepts. Vertical axis wind turbines (VAWTs) failed for onshore applications in the 1980s, but its advantages raise the potential for competitive floating designs and ultimately lowering the cost of energy. This thesis aims to (1) better...

In this research computational fluid dynamics (CFD) is used to model a vertical axis wind turbine. Well known turbulence models | i.e. the k-epsilon and k-omega SST model | are used and compared in their performance against each other and a set of experimental data. The formal research question is "What models are available for the simulation of...

A MATLAB program was built around 1D closed form representations of the radial electrical field in a vertical transverse isotropic (VTI) medium driven by an horizontal electric dipole (HED) in the transverse magnetic (TM) and transverse electric (TE) mode published in Andréis and MacGregor (2008). It is able to compute the contribution of the...

The retrieval of vertical winds by using acceleration data of satellites has never been done before and therefore the results will be unique. Two different methods can be developed for the retrieval of these winds. The first one is a two-dimensional approach and the second one uses the three-dimensional space. From the results for the vertical...

The motivation to adapt a building in terms of an upward vertical extension lies within the need for urban renewable programs. Although this practice has significant supports to make the built environment more sustainable, there are also barriers which invariably concern costs. In the case of vertical extension projects, the constructional and...

A wedge oscillating vertically at free surface with frequency ranging from wave frequencies and slamming frequencies has been studied. The focus of this work has been on the gravity effect on the vertical forces acting on the wedge, especially the definition of the limits of gravity-dominant and gravity-negligible conditions and quantification...

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...
