The offshore wind market is rapidly growing, resulting in increasing wind turbine sizes, increasing distances to port, and a shift to deeper waters. A literature study in this thesis shows that existing wind turbine installation vessels, vessels under construction, and innovative concepts will not be able to install next-generation turbines or...

We have an increasingly unsettled relationship with home (Lauzon, 2017) our environment is changing, affecting the places we live, technology allows us to move more and more into our homes, artificially creating the world outside (Urry, 2002), and essentially we are the most lonely we have ever been (DAZED & SPACE10,2022). This exclusivity...

The research question of this doctoral thesis is: What can be the future impact of design (activities) in digital health, given the rise of data collection and analysis technologies? I answered this question on three knowledge levels: design vision, knowledge-generating approach, and design tool. In Chapter 1, I envision design activities for...

Traditional kinematic joints used in large scale machinery consist of multiple rigid parts in contact, which causes wear and imposes the need for lubrication and maintenance. Compliant joints have the potential to eliminate these problems as they require less maintenance. However, these joints are not studied for large scale applications with...

Quantum-dot Cellular Automata (QCA) provide very high scale integration potential, very high switching frequency, and have extremely low power demands, which make the QCA technology quite attractive for the design and implementation of large-scale, high-performance nanoelectronic circuits. However, state-of-the-art QCA circuit designs were...

Evidence-based practices play an essential role in the development of eHealth systems. Prior research has investigated the challenge of shared understanding between professionals from the fields of health sciences and design and has highlighted the need for effective alignment of development and research practices in eHealth. However, there is a...

The increasingly transdisciplinary context of design, where designers collaborate with other disciplinary and domain experts, means there is a growing need to evidence the effectiveness of design methods. We address this need in two ways. First, we propose a ‘chain of evidence’, from motivation to claims, operationalising this in a systematic...

Today's global context of mass-produced items has resulted in an increasing 'distance', or alienation, between people and the origins of the items they buy and use: an unhealthy human-product relationship. This observation permits the search for an alternative interpretation of well-being: a transformation that would support resilience and...

Christopher Alexander’s Pattern Language Theory (PLT) has been recognized as a valuable methodology to understand complex systems. It has been applied across domains through a variety of different approaches. This article reviews exist-ing approaches to PLT application and reflects upon the differences between them. We find that application...

When designing Woven Textile-forms, both the 3D object and the textile it is composed of need to be developed simultaneously, a process requiring an adaptation of currently established methods from both textile and fashion design. This paper provides an overview of existing examples for woven formconstruction approaches through the lens of...
