Sociotechnical transitions are mostly seen in the literature as processes where actors and technologies in small niches peripheral to an organizational field, accumulate momentum, scale up, aggregate, and eventually bring about large-scale regime change. Foundational examples include the British transition from sailing ships to steamships and...

Privacy-preserving distributed average consensus has received significant attention recently due to its wide applicability. Based on the achieved performances, existing approaches can be broadly classified into perfect accuracy-prioritized approaches such as secure multiparty computation (SMPC), and worst-case privacy-prioritized approaches...

We formulate for the first time the economic dispatch problem among prosumers in an integrated electrical and gas distribution system (IEGDS) as a game equilibrium problem. Specifically, by approximating the nonlinear gas-flow equations either with a mixed-integer second-order cone (MISOC) or a piecewise affine (PWA) model and by assuming...

Continuous biomanufacturing is considered the future phase for the optimization of production processes in the biopharmaceutical industry. Productivity, product quality and consistency are greatly improved while production costs and environmental footprint are drastically reduced. The manufacturing of monoclonal antibodies (mAbs), an important...

System Design in the built environment is one of the most influential design paradigms in architecture and construction. This paper seeks to amalgamate empirical design strategies with various architectural principles, including the notion of “open buildings” or “open-ended architecture,” as well as Structuralism, all within a computational...

The construction industry’s impact on carbon emissions, pollution, and resource depletion necessitates innovative approaches to reduce environmental harm. This research explores the use of computational design, digital fabrication, and timber as a renewable material to mitigate the construction industry’s environmental impact. Timber is...

Federated learning enables the construction of machine learning models, while adhering to privacy constraints and without sharing data between different devices. It is achieved by creating a machine learning model on each device that contains data, and then combining these models through an aggregation algorithm without sharing the data....

Bottom up load forecasting, is a technique where energy consumption forecasts are made on lower spatial levels, after which the resulting forecasts are aggregated to form forecasts of higher spatial levels. With the current move to renewable energy sources and the importance of reducing the strain on an already congested electricity grid,...

Electrical load forecasting, namely short-term load forecasting, is essential to power grids’ safe and efficient operations. The need for accurate short-term load forecasting becomes increasingly pressing with increased renewable energy sources, which are stochastic in their power supply. Most forecasting models are focused on the temporal...

The development of an efficient and sustainable transportation system is crucial for the effective functioning of economies. Concrete, a widely used material for road construction, poses significant environmental challenges. A sustainable alternative is to use alkali-activated concrete (AAC) for road construction. However, the aggregates used in...

This master's thesis provides knowledge on non-destructive testing of cement and supplementary cementitious materials composition in concrete with a handheld X-ray Fluorescence analyser. <br/><br/>Today, concrete production is responsible for 8\% of the world's $CO_{2}$ emissions. Recycling concrete material can directly contribute to the...

The Flemish government is in pursuit of reaching their mobility and environment goals for 2040 and onwards. Therefore, the Flemish government sees building pipeline infrastructure as an option for transport of liquid bulk goods in the Antwerp – Ruhr trajectory. Pipeline transport is considered as an environmental friendly transport mode, which...

Recycled aggregate concrete is emphasized more and more nowadays due to its importance towards the construction industry and general welfare of our planet. Being such a significant feature with regard to universal sustainable development, every aspect of its properties should be evaluated, examined and optimized so that there is a well-known,...

Coda wave interferometry (CWI) holds promise as a technique for concrete stress monitoring. This is because the coda, which consists of multiply scattered arrivals, is the result of propagation through the medium over large distances. As such, it is sensitive to both minute structural changes and small velocity changes in that medium....

One of the barriers to implementation of steel fiber reinforced concrete (SFRC) into structural applications is the lack of understanding of the shear behaviour of SFRC members. This paper proposes a theoretical model for the shear capacity of SFRC members with mild steel reinforcement based on the shear-carrying mechanisms and sectional...

Living systems can respond to their environment through signal transduction cascades. In these cascades, original stimuli are amplified and translated into reaction or assembly events. In an effort to instill synthetic materials with biomimetic responsivity, we report an aggregation process forming a supramolecular network held together by...

The adverse human contribution to global climate change has forced the yachting industry to acknowledge the need to reduce its environmental impact due to the client's increasing pressure and potential future regulations to limit the ecological effects. Unfortunately, current real-world data presents a significant disparity between predicted...

Priorities in multi-criteria decision-making (MCDM) convey the relevance preference of one criterion over another, which is usually reflected by imposing the non-negativity and unit-sum constraints. The processing of such priorities is different than other unconstrained data, but this point is often neglected by researchers, which results in...

Seismic events in Italy and worldwide have highlighted the high vulnerability of unreinforced masonry (URM) structures in small historical centres. A key feature of these settlements is to be mostly composed of buildings in aggregate, i.e., interconnected by a more or less structurally effective connection. The seismic assessment of such...
