    (2016-06-30) Bamboo and Thin Glass: Structural analysis of bending bamboo and thin glass
    Ganatra, P. (author)
    To obtain free form geometry for the roof structure, bamboo canes are pre-bent. Thin glass is also cold bent and cladded. The tolerances that occur in bamboo construction are accounted by this flexibility of thin glass. Hence bending behavior of both the materials is studied. Different types of cladding options and connection systems are evaluated to obtain a durable roof structure.

    (2016-06-30) 3d Printing Concrete onto Flexible Surfaces
    Borg Costanzi, C. (author)
    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 (required for architectural expression). In the context of free-form concrete geometries, fabrication of such features becomes even more difficult. Curre....................

    Molengraaf, C. (author)
    When the size of a system is reduced to the scale of single particles, classical thermodynamics fails to predict the system’s behaviour as quantum fluctuations come into play. Recently it has been proven by Binder et all. [1] that theoretically a quantum battery, consisting of qubits, can be charged faster (i.e. with higher power per qubit) when the qubits become entangled during the charging process. In this thesis such optimal charging is investigated for one specific type of quantum battery....................
