Modularity is an approach to simplify systems and reduce complexity. However, existing research suggests that a mono-dimensional modularity strategy, focusing solely on one dimension, such as product, process, or organization, might not fully achieve these goals in design activities. This research investigates how combining strategies from...

The Paris Agreement seeks to limit global temperature rise and achieve climate neutrality by 2050. The UN's Sustainable Development Goal 7 emphasizes sustainable energy access, with smart grids playing a crucial role. These grids adapt to user behavior and interconnect various components. While smart grids address challenges in integrating...

The Dutch energy transition is alive and kicking, however problems arise because of this same transition. Transmission grid congestion is one of them, whereby the grid cannot handle all the extra electricity from wind and solar power, combined with the extra demand due to electrification. Furthermore, business parks have a large potential for...

Concrete is widely used in civil engineering and despite its long history, accurate prediction of the hardening process, particularly in partially restrained conditions, remains a challenge. During the hardening of partially restrained concrete, residual stresses occur due to restrained deformations caused by factors such as heating/cooling and...

As digitization moves on, more data is produced and the value of this data increases. However, data is still transferred manually between different digital systems. Reason to manually transfer information is lacking interoperability between these systems. Huge costs are related to this lacking interoperability as they cause high data losses....
