Straathof, M.H. (author)
This thesis introduces a new parameterization technique based on the Class-Shape-Transformation (CST) method. The new technique consists of an extension to the CST method in the form of a refinement function based on B-splines. This Class-Shape-Refinement-Transformation (CSRT) method has the same advantages as the original CST method, while also...

Witnessing in merging biological, social and algorithmic realities is crucial to trust, as modelled in the YUTPA framework. Being witness and bearing witness is fundamental to human interaction. System participation in human communities of practice challenges the notion of witnessing and therefore the ability to build trust. Nevertheless,...

Domain-Specific Languages (DSLs) are programming language aimed at a particular problem domain, e.g. banking, database querying or website page lay-outs. Through the use of high-level concepts, a DSL raises the level of abstraction and expressive power of the programmer, and reduces the size of programs. This dissertation covers various aspects...

The paper describes how practice of INSPIRE implementation are affecting Spatial Data Infrastructure (SDI) development. It contains the results of a EuroSDR (European Spatial Data Research) project ‘Atlas of INSPIRE implementation methods’. Aim of the project was to make an inventory of experiences when implementing INSPIRE, in order to share...

This thesis investigated the measurement of emotion during short episodes of interaction between products and their users. Chapter 2 is a review of the many ways that have been used to measure emotions, organized according to the component of emotion involved: feelings, bodily changes, and facial expression. Measurement based on bodily changes...

Designing computing systems for frontline firefighting is an open challenge. As of today, little computing support exists for such hazardous environments and designers struggle to build appropriate systems that fit the complex configuration on the frontline. Following Christopher Alexander’s understanding, design is about producing living...

In numerous radar applications, new problems concerning target detection in a clutter environment may occur. These problems cannot be solved using classical methods on the base of our current utilization of the reflection properties of various objects and their environment. Radar features that may assist in solving these problems are sought in...

GIS integrated 3D modelling is crucial for the city planning and design processes because urban modelling is a tool used in virtual environments, and provides convenience to work. Although, the creation and display of 3D city models for large regions is difficult it is vital for planning and designing safer cities, as well as public places....

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...

Flight investigations of aerodynamics and flight dynamics for micro-UAVs and mini-UAVs stimulate us to use automatic data acquisition systems to obtain valid estimations for UAV performances and characteristics. There exist many kinds of microprocessor-based and microcontroller-based data acquisition systems but all of them do not satisfy...

A reasonable selection of wing airfoil is very important part of aerodynamic design process for micro-UAVs. The selected airfoil predetermines substantially performances of the designed UAV. This reason causes us to pay attention to the problem of UAV wing airfoil selection taking into account properties specific for micro-UAVs. A concept of...

Obtaining accurate aerodynamic characteristics of in-flight Micro Air Vehicles (MAVs) was viewed as difficult, due to the nature of very low Reynolds number, 3D complex flow, and strong influence from propulsion slipstream. This paper presents the study of the tailless, fixed-wing MAV, KuMAV-001, performed at Kasetsart University. The team...

In the design of Micro Aerial Vehicles, decreasing the size is one of the most common challenging aims and to approach this aim, the weight of the whole aircraft shall decrease and structure is the second part which has the most weight [13]. In this paper, the use of a shell structure made from Nylon 6/6 is studied. Nylon was chosen because of...

Coenders, J.L. (author)
During the design and engineering process of buildings and structures an enormous amount of data and information is produced. Logic, knowledge and experience is employed during this process by the designers and engineers to finally come to the design result. Because this information can not be fully recorded by software, a huge amount of...

In (industrial) design projects, digital and non-digital aspects are often seen as two separate design 'tracks'. Due to advances in our social and technological context, the hard boundary between the digital and the non-digital is fading. This is a challenge for the designer since he needs to be creative with digital technology without...

The background involves the multiplication of Porter's (1980) five forces framework and the prior design of the 8-arena framework for capturing complexity of managing businesses within each of hundreds of (inter)national construction markets. In turn, the aim of this theoretical paper is to advance environmental sustainability as part of...
