Design and optimisation of large structures, including the positioning of lower-level components, typically require extensive user involvement and sequential mechanical analysis/optimisation iterations. This paper presents an original method that enables adaptive positioning of lower-level models (such as components) within higher level...

Naval ships are designed to operate in hostile environments. As such, vulnerability reduction is an important aspect that needs to be assessed during the design. With the increased interest in electrification and automation on board naval ships, the vulnerability of distributed systems has become a major topic of interest. However, assessing...

Ultrasound sensors based on integrated photonics devices provide a new solution to meet the miniaturization demand for the detection functionality of transducers. An important example is the silicon ring-resonator (RR) ultrasound sensor developed in our department. This sensor combines a small footprint with high sensitivity and a low detection...

Seismic data acquisition is a trade-off between cost and data quality subject to operational constraints. Due to budget limitations, 3D seismic acquisition usually does not have a dense spatial sampling in all dimensions. This causes artefacts in the processed images, velocity models, or other physical properties. However, we rely on, for...

Using 3D design models, this study aims to better involve patients in the design of hospitals by investigating what physical environmental characteristics in hospital patient rooms are valued by patients. There is a plea for shared-decision-making and collaborative design processes with representatives from healthcare and the construction...

The article discusses the central role that housing is playing during the COVID-19 pandemic, specifically in the context of Spain.<br/>First, it argues that, during the lockdown, housing has changed from being regarded a right to almost a duty. It questions the implications of such renewed consideration in terms of housing conditions, policy,...

Memristor-based Computation-in-Memory (CIM) is one of the emerging architectures for next-generation Big Data problems. Its design requires a radically new synthesis flow as the memristor is a passive device that uses resistances to encode its logic values. This article proposes a synthesis flow for mapping parallel applications on memristor...

For patients that undergo a total hip replacement (Total Hip Arthroplasty, THA), tailored communication through printed or digital information channels may improve the patient experience. This PhD project explored how a segmentation of the Total Joint Arthroplasty (TJA, both knee and hip surgery) patient population can be used to design tailored...

Self-assembly is a ubiquitous process that can generate complex and functional structures via local interactions among a large set of simpler components. The ability to program the self-assembly pathway of component sets elucidates fundamental physics and enables alternative competitive fabrication technologies. Reprogrammability offers further...

This report presents the findings from a review of more than one hundred Research &amp; Innovation (R&amp;I) projects under EU Framework programmes FP6 and FP7, dealing with a range of circularity considerations related to product design, manufacturing, use and after-use. Nine independent experts analysed these projects, brought in their own...

With a significant impact on the development of the global economy and society, air transport is predicted to rapidly grow in the coming years. Unfortunately, while delivering positive global economic and social benefits, air transport has also generated an adverse influence on the environment, especially on the quality of life of communities...

The quality and business aspects are both of particular importance in determining the type of seismic acquisition. Usually, a strong emphasis on cost reduction is inevitable. On the other hand, there is an increasing demand for the acquisition of high-quality seismic data that can contribute to the various stages in the field development profile...

A previous study clustered home occupants into archetypes with a questionnaire. This study uses qualitative methods to strengthen those previously-found archetypes with data pertaining to the participants’ home experiences. Focus groups were carried out where generative activities were conducted involving the generation of collages. The first...

Young children often lack opportunities to play in a physically active way. This is particularly the case for children with cancer and other chronic diseases, who regularly undergo periods of hospitalization. Promoting their physical activity and play can contribute to their health, wellbeing, and development. This thesis develops ‘Playscapes’ –...

The problem: Design challenges are becoming increasingly complex, amongst others because real life is getting more complex. Society is more interconnected than before and most problems occur in a variety of -quickly changing- shapes and forms, i.e. in different contexts. These contexts pose different requirements and often have interdependencies...

The societal and technical problems faced by low-income markets are increasingly seen as more complex due to environmental, social, and economic concerns. The enormous negative impacts of complex societal problems and the inability of designers to deal with complexity cannot be overcome without a paradigm shift in how we understand, engage with,...

Uit verschillende onderzoeken blijkt dat de architect een belangrijke rol vervult bij de totstandkoming van circulaire bouwprojecten. Tijdens de ontwerpfase worden immers keuzes gemaakt die het wel of niet circulair zijn van een bouwproject grotendeels bepalen (Galle et al,2018; Osmani et al, 2008). Toch heeft de helft van de architectenbureaus...

Focusing on the design of large-scale housing schemes, this doctoral dissertation examines the extent to which the architecture of dwelling was affected by the oil-led geopolitics of the Cold War, and influenced by the modernist logic of architectural design and urban planning in Iran’s period of high-modernisation (1945-1979), as Eskandar...

With automated vehicles (AVs), reversible lanes could be a sustainable transportation solution once there is vehicle-to-infrastructure connectivity informingAVs about the lane configuration changes. This paper introduced the reversible lane network design problem (RL-NDP), formulated in mixed-integer non-linear mathematical programming-both...
