This thesis focuses on a vertical farming system designed for growing crops. The system’s deficiencies were identified during a company visit where the system was operating. An analysis was conducted to see when all deficiencies would be resolved. It revealed that the vertical farm robot had to be redesigned to grab seven benches deep to...

All over the world, cities are attempting to emit less carbon to limit the possibly detrimental effects of human-induced climate change. One way to limit carbon emissions is by reducing fossil fuel car use and transitioning to forms of low-carbon mobility. Electric vehicles (EVs) are an exponentially popular low-carbon transport solution,...

fracture simulation is crucial for understanding bone fractures and their underlying physiology and pathophysiology. To achieve this objective, a collaborative effort between the Amsterdam Skill Centre (ASC) and TU Delft (TUD) culminated in the development of an innovative fracture device. The ASC's surgical department furnished us with a set of...

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...

To stop the depletion of natural resources, reduce climate change and fight biodiversity loss a circular economy in 2050 is pursued. In the upcoming years a challenging opportunity arises. Many existing bridges and viaducts with bridge decks consisting of prefabricated concrete girders have to be replaced. These girders although not designed...

The world needs reliable, sustainable, and longer duration energy storage solutions as the share of intermittent renewable energy increases in energy systems. Carnot batteries are a promising, emerging technological class of energy storage that store electricity in the form of thermal exergy. They can be made from abundant materials and existing...

Digital health is a vibrant and dynamic field, encompassing subsets such as mobile health, health information technology, wearable devices, telehealth and telemedicine, and personalised medicine. While digital health adoption has been markedly accelerated by the covid-19 pandemic (Inkster et al., 2020), an evolving body of research has focused...

ADCS magnetometers on board of satellites suffer from the disruptive magnetic field produced by the satellite itself. For CubeSats and PocketQubes this magnetic field is usually not quantified. If the largest magnetic field sources are known and if there is freedom in the magnetometer placement, the magnetometer is simply placed as far from the...

The awareness of climate change has grown worldwide in the past years. Possible consequences of climate change are sea level rise, heavier storms and high river discharges, but also prolonged drought. For a country such as the Netherlands, these water level variations, high discharges and droughts could have a great impact. Therefore, solutions...

The demand for electric vehicles (EVs) and wind turbines have been rising significantly in the EU as the EU wants to become carbon neutral by 2050 and generate 40% of its energy through renewable sources in order to avoid climate change and its consequences. However, both these technologies use several critical raw materials essential for their...

In this master thesis project is the topic sustainability in relation to the repurposing of Dutch (rural) estates investigated. Making an estate more sustainable has been researched on the basis of two redesign theories and several case studies. The research question was: ‘how can design approaches help in a contemporary reuse and redesign of a...

The goals of bus services can be split into patronage (regarding the number of people that actually use the service) and coverage (regarding the number of people that are able to use the service) goals. Current bus networks are designed primarily for the coverage goals, as a consequence the patronage is lacking resulting in only few bus services...

The industry devoted to keeping us healthy is also one of the largest contributors to climate change: one of the greatest threats to our well-being. Medical devices and services are often designed in and for high-income countries. However, they are also used in low- and middle-income countries. Due to this mismatch of context, they are often not...

Food experiences extend beyond the eating of food. They may involve fantasizing about food, perceiving the venue where you buy or consume it, seeing or smelling the food from a distance, touching its package or container, the tools you use to prepare and cook, the cutlery you use to eat a dish, the way you dispose of the leftovers, and so on. In...

Construction logistics has a negative impact on the urban environment. Therefore, in this study, construction logistics structures are designed for residential and non-residential development that should reduce the negative effects of construction-related transport in cities. These structures were made for the urban development project IJburg II...

Water is cherished as treasure in traditional Chinese culture and expected to stay in harmony with human. However, the disharmony between water and urban life is looming especially after over thirty-year rapid urbanization in China with notable global climate change. Faced with water-related issues, e.g. flooding, water pollution, water shortage...

The increasing urbanisation leads to more traffic movements in cities. Since car traffic in particular has a negative impact on the livability in the city, an alternative for car travel should be investigated to discourage car use. A possible alternative for car use could be the integrated bicycle-transit mode. Although more and more research is...

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...

Costa Junior, Jairo da (author)
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,...
