Integrated contract forms are seen as a solution to various problems in the construction industry. Some studies found that building projects delivered with integrated contract forms show better performances on time, cost and quality. Other studies state that projects developed with integrated contract forms do not perform better on time, cost or...

Ondanks alle ontwikkeling om meer energie te besparen in bestaande woningen, investeren woningeigenaren nog steeds niet massaal in energiebesparende maatregelen. Eén van de redenen is dat energiebesparende maatregelen nog weinig invloed hebben op de verkoopprijs van een woning. Zou dit wel het geval zijn, dan kan het financiële plaatje een stuk...

In the last decades the field of consumer electronics has gone through a revolutionary development and shows no sign of slowing down. Starting with one personal computer per family, electronic devices have become integrated into our daily lives to the point where everybody carries a smartphone and/or tablet with them at all times. And the next...

Transparency and light are hot items in building design and massive structural elements often form an unwelcome necessity for architects. The structural use of glass could be an ideal solution to this problem, but as yet it has not been widely applied. The problem is that although glass is a transparent, strong and stiff material, it is feared...

Mijn afstudeer project "the Barcode" is een woon- werkensemble dat gebaseerd is op flexibiliteit en variëteit. De basis van het plan is een stedenbouwkundige opzet die de huidige stedenbouwkundige structuur doorzet, maar door subtiele verschuivingen binnen deze structuur een leefbaar plint creëert. Vanuit de research naar "flexibiliteit binnen...

The main focus of the multidisciplinary nature of design is to provide users a better life in terms of enabling the products to be safe, usable and pleasurable to use. Therefore, physical pain is always avoided. However, physical pain is involved in our daily lives, not only as an avoided concept, but also as a constructive concept. It is used...

In this thesis an investigation is performed into the rise of excess pore pressures in front of a slurry tunnel boring machine (TBM) during boring. Accurate prediction of excess pore pressures is particularly important when boring close to foundation piles or when boring with a small overburden. The existence of this phenomenon has been known...

Efficient querying and retrieval of data from XML databases is a challenging task, especially when these DBs contain a large number of documents, potentially millions of them. One way to scale out is by spreading the documents over multiple nodes, but running all queries on all nodes has poor scale-out qualities. Here we propose a solution to...

This thesis discusses the design of a new steerable tip for a laparoscopic instrument. A new tip design is required since current steerable tip designs have problems with the bending stiffness and the lifespan of the cables. Underaction is a main cause of the low tip stiffness. Since one of the design requirements is that the tip needs to be...

The proposal for a new University Library in the centre of Amsterdam aims to create a representational building that connects the academic community to the city (its daily routine, dwellers and visitors). The building's scheme focuses on the creation of indoors public space and consists on diverse types of spaces that relate to both public scale...

A compiler translates one representation of a software program into another. Beside translation compilers often have other tasks such as optimizating the result and warning the programmer for mistakes. Internally a compiler uses an Intermediate Representation (IR) for analysis and manipulation of the program at hand. Data dependencies in most...

The cost associated with producing concrete elements has a direct link to its geometry. Further cost is incurred if panels have variable thicknesses throughout their cross-section. These variations can take the form of edge-returns in cladding elements (required for detailing), stiffening ribs (required for structure) or simply surface textures ...

In the Netherlands almost 17.500 kilometers of primary flood defenses protect the flood prone areas from inundation. These flood defenses are designed and periodically assessed according to certain design standards which require an average probability of exceedance of 1/1.250 or 1/10.000 per year. From the results of recent assessments, it was...

Worldwide, drastic reductions in greenhouse gas emissions are required to keep climate change to a more or less acceptable level. As of yet, the shipping industry has found no solution to this problem: it is expected that international shipping will be stuck with fossil fuels for the coming decades.
A promising way to tackle the problem is...

De waterbeweging boven een duin wordt bestudeerd aan de hand van metingen boven een gefixeerd solitair duin, nadat metingen boven een bewegend zandduin niet haalbaar bleken. De invloed van de zijwanden van de goot wordt besproken en de bodemschuifspanning langs de duinhelling wordt berekend. Bij dit laatste treden problemen op van theoretische...
