Return of products within the warranty coverage induces additional cost and loss of reputation to manufacturers. It is of practical interest to predict the return rate by experimental means before introducing a product to the market. In this paper, we propose to optimize accelerated reliability tests to achieve the goal within limited time....

Pressure sensitivity research on the head, face, and neck is critical to develop ways to reduce discomfort caused by pressure in head-related products. The aim of this paper is to provide information for designers to be able to reduce the pressure discomfort by studying the relation between pressure sensitivity and soft tissue in the head,...

Solid Oxide Fuel Cell (SOFC) systems for aviation applications have been considered for their use as APUs or powertrains, as standalone systems or in combination with gas turbines, and both fueled by reformed Jet-A or by hydrogen. Most existing studies focus on powertrain performance modelling. In this work, traditional tube-and-wing regional...

We consider energy systems in the built environment. With the transition to a more sustainable, distributed, and 'smart' energy system, such local grids are undergoing significant changes. Among other developments, the new role of end-users as 'prosumers' - users that can either produce or consume power depending on the situation - is turning...

<i>A significant problem within the automotive industry and for in-car interfaces in general, is the fact that the in-car user experience becomes obsolete at a much faster pace over time compared to the potential lifespan of the car itself. Moreover, there is also a societal future need for long lasting products in order to have a positive...

Regular physical activity helps to improve the health, fitness and quality of life of people, and prevent or decline aging related health issues. The amount of physical activity in older adults with an intellectual disability is extremely low. Contextual research indicates that this physical inactivity stems, among other things, from previous...

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...

Junior designers may experience struggles with collaborative partners (e.g clients, managers, and stakeholders) who may prioritise values differently and which may yield frustration, conflict, and stress. Particularly, junior designers may find coping with value-based conflicts challenging as support is lacking. Senior designers can develop...

In the effort against climate change the company ZEF has as its target to make methanol (CH3OH) out of atmospheric CO2; a process which can be seen as power-to-fuel and/or power-to-x. In light of the developmental cycle within ZEF a new reactor with an increased size and enhanced mass manufacturability is required. The...

To climb up the circular economy hierarchy and meet the goals of the European Green policy in the construction sector, steel profiles may be reused instead of recycled, which is currently the most common practice. An overarching digital database to efficiently match supply and demand of reclaimed structural elements will stimulate their...

In order to help the building and construction sector move towards a Circular Economy and lower its environmental impact, a better founded choice regarding the design and selection of building materials for a building’s load bearing structure is required. By investigating different design strategies that focus on optimizing various aspects of...

Our society is built around a financial system that includes debt. It is a classic saying that anyone can end up in debt, but it is how we treat those with debt that defines their well-being. With the current financial system, we are prejudicing a part of society, making an already vulnerable group even more prone to debt.<br/><br/>We have...

The need for relating stakeholders with requirements and the need for systems modeling are the main drivers for this thesis. Relating stakeholders with requirements is beneficial in order to balance the interests of all stakeholders associated with complex design projects. The variability in types of stakeholders and information abundance in...

The case study of the outer lock head of the New Terneuzen Lock is considered to investigate the behavior of the Boom Clay and to develop an automated method for improving the deformation predictions in a deep excavation format. The initiative to perform this study was the uncertainty in modeling the Boom Clay behavior during the design and the...

The offshore wind market is growing rapidly, and new offshore wind projects are being launched more than ever. To keep up with demand, parts for these wind turbines are being produced all over the world. To get all the parts needed to their destination on time, they must be transported on heavy transport vessels (HTVs).<br/><br/>Today, business...

In the early conceptual stage of design, novice designers and professionals experience different levels of fixation. Design tools and workflows can support designers to explore creative opportunities. Patent data tool for engineering design purposes is one example, using the design-by-analogy method to facilitate divergent ideation. This work...
