Activities around food have implications for the environment, personal nutrition, identity, and social relationships. As a way of understanding how daily routines evolve, practice theory (a theory of social action from sociology) provides a framework through which the complexities around consumer food habits can be understood and reveal avenues...

The desire to simulate more and more geometrical and physical features of technical structures and the availability of parallel computers and parallel numerical solvers which can exploit the power of these machines have lead to a steady increase in the number of grid elements used. Memory requirements and computational time are too large for...

The paper will argue that the meaning and definition of private renting varies from country to country and this presents a series of challenges for comparative research. It will demonstrate a lack of equivalence between “private rented housing sectors” in Western Europe and show that this arises from variations in definitions, property rights,...

Workshop 3. Session 3.1: Privacy and public life Abstract: The auditive element is often neglected, in descriptions of environments. If sound is addressed at all, only the aspect of noisiness is considered. “Soundscapes” can offer a different view. This notion is used in several ways, many of them too limited in scope. Also because a large...

Crack healing in ceramic thermal barrier coatings (TBCs) may be realized by embedding Mo-Si based particles in the thermal barrier coating. Upon cracking, these particles are exposed to oxygen that permeates through the top layer and the crack gap is filled with SiO2 which is produced from oxidation at high temperature. Due to its amorphous...

Transient's analysis is performed to determine the cavitation inception on a submerged body and flow dynamics under different working conditions. Cavitation analysis is done for a particular geometry to investigate the location and determine the critical conditions for different depths at which cavitation take place. Simulation has been done...

In some nights, the near-surface temperature can drop dramatically and turbulence in the stably stratified boundary layer becomes very weak, such that the lfow reaches a (quasi-) laminar state. In other cases, however, the atmosphere remains in a turbulent state and temperatures stay relatively high. Recently, the appearance of two distinct...

The orientation distribution and rotations of anisotropic particles in turbulent flows play a key role in many applications ranging from icy clouds to papermaking and drag reduction in pipe flow. However, experimental access to time-resolved orientations of anisotropic particles has not been easy to achieve. The use of 3D printing opens up the...

Local and national Governments must deliver the public facilities that citizens need and, at the same time, select private firms that are able to build these facilities according to the best possible compromise between available resources (money, time...) and the quality of the required work/service. Consequently, multi-criteria evaluation...

The triple bottom line approach, focusing on "People Planet Profit" is based on environmental,economic and social criteria. To ascertain the sustainability of biomass utilisation, these aspects must be considered to overcome or minimise the problems. Then quantitative measures are needed for assessing impacts from environment, economic and...

To combat climate change, different types of initiatives and policy instruments are required to support the development and dissemination of new energy efficient technologies. What type of policy instruments shall be used is, however, not pre-determined. To advance knowledge in how to design successful policy instruments, evaluations and deep...

Laboratory experiments with rotating annuli are reported that reveal a prograde jet, which is adjacent either to a (longitudinally) librating inner straight cylinder or to a librating inner truncated cone (frustum), whereas the outer cylindrical wall and bottom and top lids rotate with constant angular velocity. In the frustum case, the jet is...

Workshop 2.Session B. Abstract. Determination of the demand for home ownership is analysed. Determinants include prices and short- and medium-term price changes, public regulation (regulation of house rent, housing subsidies, taxation), competition from alternative residence forms (measured by supply of subsidized housing), social composition of...

Reviving neglected existing urban fabrics is one of the main frame-work for our future. A contemporary theory of conservation regarding architectural intervention and buildings subsequent re-use, has been developed to address a growing number of tired and neglected buildings. Rehabilitation is required for buildings that are no longer fit to...
