Cities account for approximately 75% of Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions. This, along with the fact that cities also account for 75% of natural resource consumption and 50% of global waste production, makes urbanization a world-wide issue (Sukhdev, Vol, Brandt, & Yeoman, 2017). Additionally, the widely-practiced urban linear economic structure...

Prosthetic devices remain inaccessible for many amputees in low-income countries. The lack of trained professionals and resources to fit a prosthetic (interface) are principle reasons. The low cost at which additive manufacturing technology (AM) is able to produce a custom made part could change this. As such, the aim of this study was to design...

In 2003 certain areas of the Dutch coast were found not to meet contemporary safety standards, as a result of erosion that occurred over the last century. One of these 'weak links' stretches from Camperduin to Petten and is known as the Hondsebossche Pettemer Zeewering; a former 'hard' sea dyke with a stone revetment. To fortify this 12...
