"Brussels was never destroyed by the wars, but rather by its own people" these words of Victor Bourgouis show the destructive vision of social and cultural spaces in Brussels. The city's vision of urban development is based on top-down politics, fed by the desire to be modern. This affection leads to the non-identification and displacement of...

According to International Energy Agency (IEA), the demand for high value chemicals (HVC) will increase by 60% to a total of 400 Mt/year by 2050, leading to an increase of 30% in direct CO2 emissions. However, the Paris agreement forces the sector to reduce its emissions by 90-100% in 2050 compared to 1990. This induces the need for a more...

With its potentially disruptive nature, the smart grid can be viewed from both a transformational and an innovation systems perspective. Synthesising these, a research approach is adopted in which a Technological Innovation System (TIS) analysis is combined with a transformational perspective to identify a broader range of success and failure...

In this paper, a numerical simulation method of mixed-mode fatigue crack propagation was explored using the extended finite element method (XFEM) and the Virtual Crack Closure Technique (VCCT). Both 2D and 3D numerical models were selected to simulate the fatigue crack propagation of steel specimens. Two coefficients were proposed to...

This research explored potential designs of an innovative mitigation strategy to combat the aircraft-produced ultrafine particle (UFP) concentrations at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol (AMS). This technique is based on the principle that fine water droplets are able to encapsulate dust and fine particles, which clump together and eventually descent...

Sustainability transitions is a complex multi-dimensional research field. In this field, different frameworks exist that have grown as separate strands while they actually contain many similarities and in some cases can even complement each other. In general, these frameworks try to present and clarify the processes related to transitions of...

According to the WHO, falls are responsible for over 38 million disability-adjusted life years lost each year, globally. Additionally, an estimated 684.000 individuals die of falling each year, making it the second leading cause of unintentional death. One of the most effective physical activity interventions to reduce the risk of falling, is...

What exactly causes the emergence of the attitude-behaviour gap, and to what extent, is not fully understood. Previous academic research has shown that many barriers to adoption remain, and that difficulty lies in the heterogeneity of consumers. Through the use of a simulation model this thesis explores the emergence of the attitude-behaviour...

Making decisions regarding delayed line haul transport is a very demanding and complex process in E-commerce distribution centres. Automating this process can decrease decision-maker discussion and assessment time and, as a result, allow decision-makers to spend more time on other demanding tasks like sorting and distributing. Automation in this...

This report first discusses the phenomenon of aging, how it is commonly understood, and the state-of-the-art of the technology for aging people (gerontechnology) (chapter 1). In the analysis, the author briefly describes the origin and development of the notion of aging through medical, social, and cultural lenses. How the negative narrative...

Collaboration in teams composed of both humans and automations has an interdependent nature, which demands calibrated trust among all the teammembers. For building suitable autonomous teammates, we need to study how trust and trustworthiness function in such teams. In particular, automations occasionally fail to do their job, which leads to a...

Artificial Intelligence technology offers computational, decision-making, and optimizing abilities that surpass every previously established traditional computation method. By being able to navigate across large amounts of data, the realized solutions learn on their own and provide results that would be unattainable with other ways. The complex...
