This research project focuses on how decisions made by practitioners, articulating rural housing in Sub-Sahara Africa, contribute to the decreasing level of self-reliance inhabitants have regarding their housing. Multiple case studies on Mt. Elgon proved that inhabitants have a significantly higher self-reliance level, comparing traditional to...

Technical developments of the last decades have led to an increase in design space for non-nuclear submarines, especially regarding the increasing amount of feasible power plant configurations. To be able to select the most suitable power plant configuration, it is important to know the effect on the complete submarine design and all systems on...

Purpose: The purpose of this paper is to describe the quasi-experiment setting to test the formulated design support (developed in the author’s PhD research) within a design research methodology (DRM) framework. This support intends to help designers to consciously engage rural families within a development aid scenario and increase their...

This paper reports on the research-driven design process of an innovative thermal mass concept: Convective Concrete. The goal is to improve building energy efficiency and comfort levels by addressing some of the shortcomings of conventional building slabs with high thermal storage capacity. Such heavyweight constructions tend to have a slow...

Physical prototypes and scale models play an important role in engineering design processes, especially in the field of industrial design. Such models are typically used to explore and discuss design concepts in various stages, from initial idea generation to manufacturing. Over the last decade, augmented reality technologies have been developed...

The starting point of the research is the need to refurbish existing residential building stock, in order to reduce its energy demand, which is a necessary step to reach the ambitious energy and decarbonisation targets for 2020 and 2050 that require an eventual reduction up to 90% in CO2 emissions. In this context, the rate and depth of...

Small-to-medium-sized enterprises (SME) have limited number of employees and assets; nevertheless, they make up a substantial part of a country’s economy given their capability to respond to market and technological changes. However, one of the main obstacles that hinder the exploitation of SMEs’ advantages in emerging countries is the...

We have been witnessing an increased interest in a more holistic approach to urban design practice and education. In this paper we present a spatial data model for urban design that proposes the combination of urban environment feature classes with design process feature classes. This data model is implemented in a spatial database that becomes...

This report presents the design of a haptic tool for designers. The tool should aid them in material selection for product experience and fit in an advanced design studio known as the Tangible Virtual Reality environment. The field of haptics and existing haptic devices were studied, as well as the Tangible Virtual Reality environment....

Simulation is claimed to be an effective tool in building design to degrade the systems integration matter into comprehension of designers with either a tool or a process related approach. In this study, pre-design phase is considered with energy performance point of view. Aim of the study is exploring integration possibilities of building...

Freeform features are parameterizable shape parts that are used in the design of industrial products. The parametric nature of the feature allows a designer to quickly manipulate shape without having to precisely configure the geometry of the shape. However, in many cases, designers want to use existing shapes in their designs, for which...
