De stad produceert 24 uur per dag onvoorstelbare hoeveelheden data. Een stroom gegevens op gebieden als transport, energie, milieu en gezondheid die alleen maar toeneemt. Data die steeds vaker als open data publiekelijk gedeeld worden. Maar ook data die binnen het domein van grote databedrijven als Google, Amazon, Facebook en Uber blijven en...

The Rietveld Schröder House is not only an icon of Dutch architecture, but also a museum welcoming about 18,000 visitors each year. The unusual experimental character of the construction and the fact that the house is open to the public<br/>can be expected to affect the indoor climate and to pose some risks for the conservation of the building...

‘The land, so heavily charged with traces and with past readings, seems very similar to a palimpsest’ (Corboz 1985: 190). Any territory is the result of multiple and simultaneous processes; some are taking place spontaneously, others as the direct result of human interventions. (Secchi 1990; Secchi and Viganò 2009) For urbanists, a territory is...

The focus of design studies has shifted from a product-centric perspective to a perspective in which value is defined by and co-created with the consumer, rather than embedded in the output. The reasoning hence focuses on the interplay between innovation and design processes. Moving from an earlier conceptualization of design-driven innovation,...

This chapter presents an overview of policy intentions in the Netherlands related to road pricing since 1988/1990 and will discuss dominant factors for not implementing any road pricing policy so far. The contribution is limited to the payment of road use, excluding taxes on fuel and parking policies. The main conclusion is that, although the...

Demand response refers to the concept that power consumption should aim to match supply, instead of supply following demand. It is a key technology to enable the successful transition to an electricity system that incorporates more and more intermittent and uncontrollable renewable energy sources. For instance, loads such as heat pumps or...

The phenomenon of migration is a fundamental concept to evolutionary biology, population studies, and life sciences. It is almost uncontestable common knowledge that migration is an indispensable factor to propel difference and change, thus ensuring genetic variation, and ultimately evolution for all life forms. For most species migration is the...

Even though emerging city-makers are increasingly organized to trigger social changes, it is still hard to apprehend their real power to transform space and the way we live together. In this chapter, we explore how designerly approaches, such as hacking, making, and prototyping, can empower emerging city-makers to trigger a broader change and...

The Netherlands is internationally known for its relatively large social rented housing stock. Since the policy genesis of urban renewal (Stedelijke Vernieuwing) in 1997, urban restructuring has gained traction, especially in the early postwar neighborhoods. With demolition and new housing construction as key instruments of restructuring, the...

This chapter reviews concepts related to the uncertainties associated with structures and how the results of load tests can be used to reduce these uncertainties. When an existing bridge is subjected to a load test, it is known that the capacity of the cross section is at least equal to the largest load effect that was successfully resisted. As...

This chapter describes the proof load testing of viaduct Zijlweg at a position that is critical for bending moment and at a position that is critical for shear. The viaduct Zijlweg has cracking caused by alkali-silica reaction, and the effect of material degradation on the capacity is uncertain. Therefore, the assessment of this viaduct was...

This chapter discusses aspects that should be considered prior to every load test. The first questions that needs to be answered are “Is this bridge suitable for load testing?” and “If so, what are the goals of the load test?” To answer these questions, information must be gathered and preliminary calculations should be carried out. In order to...
