A lack of appropriate guidelines for the design and assessment hampers the development of multifunctional flood defenses like parking garages in quays and houses in dikes. The aim of the present paper, therefore, is to gain insight in the structural performance of multifunctional flood defenses and to provide a tool to evaluate design...

In practice, the disciplines of landscape architecture/urbanism and hydraulic engineering have become more specialized during the last decades, gradually growing apart. The gap between governance and ecology seems to have become even larger. This leads to discussions about who should take the lead in a design; and, if the design approach is not...

Safety is frequently addressed as an emergent property of complex and dynamic systems. This contribution advocates the validity and importance of incorporating intrinsic technological hazards and systemic interrelations from a multi-actor perspective in the early phases of design and development. This perspective creates inherent properties in...

Innovative engineering design shapes the development of novel technologies and is ethically as well as socially relevant, because it affects what kind of possibilities and consequences will arise. A major challenge in engineering design work on innovative technologies is the multitude of uncertainties in the form of known unknowns, unknown...

In the field of structural building engineering there is a market shift taking place as a result of the growing number of buildings that are listed as cultural heritage, secularization, the economic situation and the increasing office vacancy rate in Europe and the US. More and more structural engineering firms that were designing and...

This paper contributes to the design of the background check and ID verification process of the Checkpoint of the Future. Criminal actions and terrorist attacks have led to increased security measures that have put strain on both airport resources and the processing rate of passengers in security lanes. The ‘Checkpoint of the Future’ has to...

Vermaas, P.E. (author)
In this position paper, the ambiguity of functional descriptions in engineering is considered from a methodological point of view. Four responses to this ambiguity are discussed, ranging from defining a single meaning of function and rejecting the different meanings that are currently used in engineering to accepting these meanings as coexisting...

One of the main challenges in Multi-disciplinary Design Optimisation (MDO) is the interoperability of heterogeneous simulation tools. Some researches have reported that, due to these interoperability issues, only around 20% of the product development time is spent on analyses and creative design tasks. Clearly, there is a lot to gain, when it...

What people are realistically able to do and be in their lives, their capabilities, are of central moral importance according to the capability approach (CA) of Amartya Sen and Martha Nussbaum. Examples are the capabilities to be healthy or to be part of a community. The CA has become an influential normative framework for reflecting on justice,...

The paper forms part of a multiple case study in progress that focuses on information relationships, i.e., the exchange of information and knowledge at the micro-social level between supplier and buyer firms in the fuzzy front end of product development. The micro-social level is made up of dyadic information relationships between the Design...

Reijnders, A.W. (author)
Because the amount of knowledge in the engineering domain nowadays is huge, while being opaque, heterogeneous, distributed and informal at the same time, it is incredibly time-consuming for an engineer to find the knowledge (s)he is looking for and to reuse that knowledge. Furthermore, the amount of knowledge is growing exponentially, while the...

De Groot, N.C. (author)
The design of complex technological systems required an early outlook of institutional issues. The paper suggests a design methodology to combine institutional design and engineering design. The design methodology is applied to a case study of tidal power development in the Klabat bay, Indonesia. In the case study it is shown that there are...

Engineering design is conventionally regarded as a mono actor optimization problem and modeled accordingly. Decision making, values and optimality are building blocks of conventional engineering design. However with the advent of decentralized decision making processes, various actors are more likely to be involved in decision making processes...

Van Eck, D. (author)
In this paper, I discuss a methodology for the conversion of functional models between functional taxonomies developed by Kitamura et al. (2007) and Ookubo et al. (2007). They apply their methodology to the conversion of functional models described in terms of the Functional Basis taxonomy into functional models described in terms of the...

Architectural Engineering is a discipline concerned with design, planning, construction and operation in architecture. In order to have a proper transfer of the AE principles, there should be a methodology clearly defined; which has not been properly documented in the literature related in this field yet. The objective of this thesis is to...

Philosophers of science have by and large neglected technology. In this book, I have tried to do something about this lacuna by analyzing a few aspects of technical artifacts from a philosophical angle. The project was part of the research program "The Dual Nature of Technical Artifacts" based at Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands...
