Digital technologies have been reshaping how the process industries operate. The extensive use of physical and information digitalization called by ambitious revolution to redesign process plants significantly transforms the process safety landscape in the process industries. Digitalization depends on the reliable use of data. This becomes a new...

Spatial design integrates social, cultural, economic, and political perspectives with natural site conditions and man-made construction to plan for sustainable urban development. The current flood-risk-related challenges induced by climate change place pressure on designing cities in which both natural and man-made conditions can be imbalanced....

Neuroimaging techniques are used to image the structure and function of the nervous system for medicine, psychology, and neuroscience research. Brain data are inherently multidimensional and complex, and the recent advances in neuroimaging allow the acquisition of brain signals at an increasing spatiotemporal resolution. Being able to process...

This chapter covers the development of cold gas microthruster, which is widely regarded as the simplest way of generating thrust in space, for nanosatellites. A brief background and principles of operation were given, followed by the introduction of nozzle theory that could be used in the preliminary estimation of microthruster performance...

Electrothermal propulsion can be seen as an intermediate concept between electrical and chemical propulsion. Propellant heating typically happens by means of a resistance (resistojet) or an electrical discharge (arcjet). For the extremely miniaturized applications that will be discussed in this chapter, resistojets are by far the most...

Many coastal areas around the world are densely populated and at risk from flooding, but utilize different strategies to deal with coastal hazard. This chapter summarizes how Dutch concepts for coastal flood risk reduction have been explored for Galveston Bay. Firstly, it is shown how risk-based screening methods can help to evaluate various...

Remarkable attention from both academia and industry has been attracted to extrusion-based 3D concrete printing (3DCP) during the last decade. Many companies in the Netherlands, e.g., Royal BAM Group, CyBe, Twente Additive Manufacturing, and Bruil, are attempting to implement this technology in practice. 3DCP is the focused digital concrete...

Aviation biofuels are promising to reduce carbon emissions in the aviation sector. However, emerging concerns over biofuels indicate a need for sustainability analyses that take into consideration the context around biofuel production. Here, we present a novel ex-ante sustainability analysis of production alternatives for aviation biofuel in...

Over the past decade, the water, energy, and food (WEF) nexus approach has evolved to become a focus of the Southern African Development Community (SADC) development strategies. However, a lack of empirical evidence, appropriate methods, and qualitative and quantitative tools to implement the WEF nexus approach has been highlighted. This...

The water-energy-food (WEF) nexus is shown to be a highly interconnected, complex system, operating over multiple time scales, and at spatial scales from household to global. The key WEF nexus foci issues and challenges are known to be extremely diverse and change depending on the local situation and setting, the scale at which the nexus is...

Railway ballast is normally made of crushed rocks with grading (particle size distributions). Ballast is inevitably suffering from more rapid degradation. Because ballast keeps undergoing and dissipating most of the train loadings, furthermore, the train speed and freight weight are increasing, causing more intensive loadings to ballast. To...

Additive manufacturing (AM), as one of the most powerful manufacturing methods, is fabricating a three-dimensional (3D) structure using computer-aided design (CAD) data by adding material layer by layer. In contrast to traditional manufacturing processes that start from raw block material and remove waste materials, the AM process can...

Geothermal energy (GE), as an ideal renewable resource for building cooling/heating with stability and abundance in energy supply, has been widely exploited in developing countries. The common utilization forms of GE mainly include the ground source heat pump (GSHP), underground duct system (UDS), and abandoned wells energy (AWE) system....

Water, energy, and food (WEF) systems form a complex interconnected network, operational at scales from the household up to the global. These scales, like the nexus sectors themselves, and mutually interconnected, with lower-level characteristics help drive higher-level resource management, and vice versa. This chapter highlights recent WEF...

Risk-informed decision-making needs methods for assessing flood risk, and often the flooding probability and the consequences of floods (such as economic damage and fatalities) play an important role in the risk assessment. Also, measures to reduce the flood risk need to be formulated, in order to make a risk-informed decision, whether to...

Leisure walking (including running) is the easiest way to combat the lack of physical activity of urban residents. Hence, understanding what drives people to take a leisurely walk is vital for the design and planning of healthy and vibrant neighborhoods. In this chapter, we investigate and identify which (urban) features can define the...

The concern that an economy could experience persistent stagnation, caused by a structural weakness of aggregate demand, goes back to Alvin Hansen's thesis of “secular stagnation.” Hansen's thesis has been revived in recent times, when it became clear that productivity and potential growth in the OECD countries have been declining for decades....
