Muscles generate force and enable movement. After excitation of a muscle the muscle fibers contract. Methods to assess muscle contraction in vivo are scarce. Electromechanical delay (EMD), defined as the time lag between muscle excitation and contraction onset, has been proposed as a measure for contraction efficiency, but provides limited...

Construction projects are argued to be the most complex of all production undertakings (Baccarini, 1996). Williams (2002, 2005) states that the complexity of these projects is a contributing factor to project failures, such as cost overrun, which are commonly seen in infrastructure project (Cantarelli, Molin, Van Wee, & Flyvbjerg, 2012). As...

In aircraft maintenance, performance of routine maintenance tasks is prone to generate additional non-routine tasks. These non- routine tasks relate to solving an unexpected issue and have specific requirements in terms of materiel, tools and manpower. In existing research regarding optimization of aircraft maintenance environments and schedules...

Introduction. To prevent burns from scar formation and contraction, the use of splinting therapy in the early phase of wound healing is considered as an effective non-surgical method. Splinting entails the application of a mechanical load in the opposite direction of the contractile force within the wound, based on the assumption that wound- or...

In this study several models for burn contraction are studied. The first ones are rudimentary, but as the thesis progresses we work towards so-called morphoelastic models. These inherently capture both elastic and plastic deformations. After establishing the deterministic part, a framework is built for the incorporation of heterogeneity.

The current thesis explores the impact that the use of visual contracts has from the fairness perspective. The project developed in collaboration with the company Visual Contracts, a start-up specialized in Legal Design Thinking, aims to provide an added value and evidence that supports the relevance of their activity. A design process that...

This research tries to provide a first direction in measuring collaborative trends. By being able to measure collaborative trends, more research can be done towards the effects of events and the timing of collaborative practices to implement in projects. This is done by providing an answer on the main research question: “How can collaborative...

Circular Economy (CE) is proposed as an solution to the problems the world is facing concerning global warming and resource scarcity. The construction industry however struggles with the new concept of CE. Practitioners lack knowledge, experience and examples. Therefore, embedding circularity in the contract may work as a stimulation. The...

The construction industry has always been an important driver of the economy. An important part of the projects in this industry is commissioned by public entities. However, recently a trend can be observed in which the procurement process fails more often than before. Due to the current times of economic expansion in the Netherlands contractors...

Smart contracts are applications that are deployed and executed on a blockchain's decentralised infrastructure. Many smart contract applications rely on data that resides outside the blockchain. However, while traditional web applications can communicate with trustworthy data sources directly through the Internet, this is not possible for smart...

The construction sector is one of the biggest consumers of raw materials and generates large amounts of construction waste as well. CE is a way to delink the construction sector from the consumption of finite resources of the earth and excessive waste generation. Despite of the fact that there are a lot of interventions, such as Commodity...

The circular economy is a muchdiscussed topic. In recent years it became clear that scarcity of resources, pollution and landfill will make circularity inevitable in the near future.To achieve this major changes should be made in the built environment and the building sector, as the built environment is currently mostly organized in a linear way...

The pioneers in the early 21th century who built the first big offshore wind farms now have to compete with the quickly improving renewable energy technologies and see their farm being out-dated (See also: Dvorak, 2013 & Wind Energy Update, 2013). At present, wind farm owners face difficult decisions when finding the right O&M contract...
