In today’s globalizing world an increasing number of companies design products and services for overseas markets and users. Designers face the challenge of creating solutions that fulfil users’ needs, and this becomes more important as the cultural distance between them continues to grow. Unsuccessful international endeavours which resulted in...

Automatically optimizing robotic behavior to solve complex tasks has been one of
the main, long-standing goals of Evolutionary Robotics (ER). When successful, this
approach will likely fundamentally change the rate of development and deployment
of robots in everyday life. Performing this optimization on real robots can be risky

To follow Moore’s law and the trend of devices to keep shrinking, the nanotechnology industry is challenged in finding a suitable technique for the mass production of integrated circuits with critical dimension in the sub-10 nm range. At the time this project started, EUV lithography, that employs light with a wavelength of 13.5 nm and thus...

Aberrations in optical systems, such as telescopes and microscopes, degrade the quality of the images that can be produced by these systems. For example, an object that is positioned out of focus produces a blurred image on a camera sensor and the turbulent air in the earth’s atmosphere reduces the imaging performance of telescopes. In this...

Research in this thesis is aimed at comprehensively characterizing the mechanical performance of adobe components. Adobe is a traditional masonry made of sundried bricks and mortar. Bricks are made of soil mixed with fibres and joined together by mud mortar. Adobe is largely spread in areas of the world prone to seismic risk or involved in...

In this thesis we presented comprehensive studies on methane activation by binuclear Fe-oxo sites located in porous MOF and zeolite frameworks. Many of such studies have been previously performed, however the main focus was usually on the C-H bond activation of methane. Here we focused on the whole reaction mechanism including the activation of...

After several recent flight safety events, such as the accident of Air France flight 447 in 2009, investigators determined that surprise and startle can severely disrupt pilot responses. They concluded that pilots need to be better prepared for unexpected and potentially startling situations. In response, aviation safety authorities have...

Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) enable the infrastructure manager to keep the performance quality of the infrastructure at an acceptable level. A KPI must include specific features of the infrastructure such as functionality and criticality. The KPIs can be classified into three performance levels: (1) technical level KPIs; (2) tactical level...

There is a growth in the use of composites for the new generation of wide-body aircraft such as the Boeing 787 and Airbus A350. This shift from using aluminium as the primary material is motivated by the benefits of using composites in design, manufacturing and operations. Composites offer the aircraft manufacturer the ability to create more...

Uncertainty is ubiquitous in many areas of science and engineering. It may result from the inadequacy of mathematical models to represent the reality or from unknown physical parameters that are required as inputs for these models. Uncertainty may also arise due to the inherent randomness of the system being analyzed. For many problems of...

This dissertation deals with ‘architectural space formation’, which is understood as the part of architectural and urban design that concerns the creation and structuring of physically defined spaces of inside and outside character separately as well as in relation to each other and to open space. Furthermore, it focuses on the fundamental...

This thesis presents an experimental work on electronic transport in two-dimensional (2D) van der Waals systems. The variety of the physics of the chapters reflects the exploratory character of the Ph.D. study and demonstrates the versatility and the unique properties of some of the members of the vast group of van der Waals materials. In the...

Social anxiety disorder (SAD), commonly referred to social phobia, is one of the most an immense and unreasonable fear of social interaction. Cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) is the most thoroughly studied nonpharmacologic approach to the treatment of SAD patients. In CBT, patients are gradually, in vivo, exposed to anxiety-provoking...

To predict the quality of an optical system we need to simulate the effects of aberrations and diffraction. Aberrations can be calculated by tracing rays from a source point through a digital model of the system and evaluating the spot size of these rays on the detector. For a system without aberrations, the rays will intersect at a single point...

The cost and the development time of pharamecutical products are often severely affected by the in vitro tests currently employed in pharmaceutical R&D. These assays are often failing to accurately recapitulate diseases and to predict human responses to new medicines. Organ-on-Chip (OOC) devices are designed to result in advanced in vitro...
