Early-stage design of complex ships is of an iterative nature due to a coevolving problem definition and solution generation. In addition, design decisions are often made based on assumptions early on. To inform the stakeholder dialogue to support the definition of the design problem, designers need to gain insight into the technical feasibility...

Project aim<br/>In recent years, the amount of households facing problematic debts has been increasing. To combat the resulting problems, municipalities offer debt counseling, focusing on (voluntary) arrangements to help recipients become debt-free. The recent reduction of counseling duration from 36 to 18 months raises concerns about recipients...

Networks are becoming ever more important in today's highly interconnected society, from telecommunication networks and social networks to power grids and the Internet. The field of Network Science seeks to uncover structure within the complex topologies of networks and the processes that govern their link formation. Many methods and models in...

This research investigates the application of a digital twin in managing challenges of variability and complexity within systems by using a case study at KLM Engineering &amp; Maintenance. Using the DMADV (define, measure, analyse, design and verify) methodology, the research evaluates the problem using a literature review, measures and analyses...

In an era when rising threats put increasing pressure on security demands in state office buildings, the public trust in these same governmental institutions is on the decline, owing to a sense of detachment and lack of transparency.<br/>This detachment partially stems from the functional and physical separation of people’s civic and political...

What relationship can a cemetery have with the city? <br/>Since the first garden cemetery was built in the early nineteenth century, this concept spread rapidly throughout Europe. Until now garden cemetery is still the common form of cemeteries in European cities. With the concept of garden cemetery, cemeteries exist in the urban fabric as a...

The Berlin’s Kitchenlab bridges the gap between highly specialised culinary education and the community. As a school that acts like a social catalyst for its surroundings. The building is located in Otto Park in Alt Moabit, an upcoming area, surrounded by food venues at the end of a public axis. The building consists of a central street with a...

Every human being originates from a single fertilized egg cell, continuously duplicating to form a body consisting of trillions of cells in a process known as the cell cycle. This cycle involves two major stages: interphase, where the cell prepares for division, and mitosis, where it divides into two daughter cells. The accurate duplication and...

This study explores the potential application of architectural considerations from three Dominican priories—St. Dominic Church, Sainte-Marie de La Tourette, and the Dominican Motherhouse— emphasising their reflection of divine transcendence as a design narrative for the adaptive reuse of St. Dominic Church to multifunctional Art Complex Het...

Weak-memory models are standard formal specifications of concurrency across hardware, programming languages, and distributed systems. A fundamental computational problem is consistency testing: is the observed execution of a concurrent program in alignment with the specification of the underlying system? The problem has been studied...

Herein, we present a practical strategy to enhance the performance of a multiphase system for bicarbonate hydrogenation based on a molecular Ru-PNP pincer catalyst. This study demonstrates that the use of organic antioxidants not only mitigates catalyst degradation but also significantly boosts its intrinsic activity. This enables efficient...

This article studies safety management in future gas systems. It is structured around the compatibility of its technological and institutional coordination. We identify how the current mode of safety management is not in harmony with increasingly complex technological and institutional arrangements, and combine safety science with...

Low-lying coastal cities are vulnerable to compound floods caused by many factors including river flows, tides and local rainfall. Many previous studies focus on the impacts of rainfall and tidal levels (two driving factors) on estuaries or regions near the main single river, while research about the three influencing factors on the floods...

Carbonated water flooding (CWI) increases oil production due to favorable dissolution effects and viscosity reduction. Accurate modeling of CWI performance requires a simulator with the ability to capture the true physics of such process. In this study, compositional modeling coupled with surface complexation modeling (SCM) are done, allowing...

3D modeling of indoor spaces is a prerequisite for daylight simulation, and the accuracy of the 3D models has a significant impact on the simulation. The goal of this study was to quantify the errors caused by modeling indoor spaces at different accuracy levels to find the optimal balance between the reliability of the results and labor...

The presence of sensor networks to monitor environmental conditions and the automation of blinds and lighting systems controls is now commonplace in buildings, especially public ones with a high number of occupants. However, implementing control algorithms that are sufficiently reactive to variable sky conditions and that actually meet...

This study explores traditional adhesives using an ethnobiological approach within a multisocioecological context in Zambia. Through semi-structured interviews, videotaped demonstrations, and herbarium collections, we investigated the traditional adhesives people know and use, the flexibility of production processes, resource usage, and...

Despite the increasing use of standards for documenting and testing agent-based models (ABMs) and sharing of open access code, most ABMs are still developed from scratch. This is not only inefficient, but also leads to ad hoc and often inconsistent implementations of the same theories in computational code and delays progress in the...

Background: In a world of ever-increasing complexity, organizations and people have an ever-increasing need for support systems that help them understand and shape the world around them. While simulation game design derived from the very idea to propose an instrument able to address complexity, seminal approaches dealt with a different level...

We show L<sup>p</sup>-estimates for square roots of second order complex elliptic systems L in divergence form on open sets in R<sup>d</sup> subject to mixed boundary conditions. The underlying set is supposed to be locally uniform near the Neumann boundary part, and the Dirichlet boundary part is Ahlfors–David regular. The lower endpoint for...
