Despite the strong emphasis on irrigation development in Southern Africa, different initiatives from technology developers, policy developers and development organizations to encourage water transport technology adoption have often been disappointing. The lack of long-term success can partly be contributed to a mismatch between farmer realities...

In seismically active areas, liquefaction hazards have always been a complicated aspect to evaluate as part of the seismic design of a project. In the case of the design of critical facilities, this becomes crucial, as beyond design basis conditions may elevate the seismic loads significantly and create a considerable liquefaction risk in areas...

The data-driven approach shows great potential for designing new materials with unprecedented properties by using machine learning and optimization. Recently, a data-driven framework was successfully applied to design a unit cell of metamaterial achieving super-compressibility, despite being built out of brittle base material. The key element of...

The ammunition domain is very fragmented and people within the Ministry of Defence often make the assumption that people from the different branches of the Armed Forces think differently about safety and its priority in making decisions for military operations. So far however it is unknown how the people in the ammunition chain think about...

The use of machine learning systems has great potential to better predict probabilities of default for credit underwriting. Despite this advantage, herewith there exists the substantial risk of discrimination. Moreover, machine learning models with the highest prediction-accuracy are often the least explicable (i.e. explainable). Nonetheless,...

Every year hundreds of thousands of people are affected by natural disasters that occur due to various physical phenomenon. They include earthquakes, tsunamis, volcanic eruptions, and hurricanes. In this research the focus is on hurricane events and the impact they have on a community. The ability for a community to bounce back is defined by...

Recent years the Netherlands have been shocked by a series of earthquakes. Normally an earthquake would be considered as a natural hazard, however extracting gas induces these earthquakes. Whenever a hazard is induced, it is perceived as man-made and therefore controllable. This leads to differences in risk acceptance in relation to natural...

In the recent years, several cases of flash floods have been reported in the Municipality of Tirana, causing important material damage in the region. One of the most devastating events occurred in December 2017, which flooded the City Park area (West of the Municipality of Tirana). This area is strategical because it...

This MSc Design for Interaction graduation project aims to explore how design may enhance policymaking. In light of this, an extensive study was conducted at the Ministry of Education, Culture and Science. This study entailed an ethnographic study of nine months during which six policymaking cases were studied as well as a four month...

This thesis ‘Towards sustainable projects´ will focus on the integration of sustainability aspects in projects in the engineering industry. This research uses the following definition for ‘sustainability’: “meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs” (Brundtland, 1987). This...

On 15th of October 2018 the kick-off of the project took place. The assignment was to design a science based methodology for the creation of SRFACE wetsuits. The current design process is still almost entirely based on trial and error. A product designer draws seam lines on a 2D body outline, based on his knowledge about fit, insulation and...

This study was initiated with a view to understand factors that either aids or presents a barrier towards the adoption of a radically new public transport mode, Hyperloop. The initial promises of Hyperloop include a faster, cheaper, sustainable and efficient mode of transport compared to the existing public transport mode alternatives. However,...

Compressed natural gas (CNG) has been gaining attention in the automotive industry since it allows for a substantial reduction in carbon dioxide emissions. Recent advancements in direct-injection technology have contributed to an increase in volumetric efficiency and engine power, but the physical modeling of such gaseous injection with...

A methodology for an assessment of resiliency of a transportation system threatened by a disaster has been evaluated as to whether it is applicable in small coastal communities at risk of tsunamis. A case study was carried out in Otsuchi town in Japan. The result shows that, although the methodology is well-designed to apply in different cities...

Space mission design is an activity that deals with a highly complex, non-linear system of which the requirements and characteristics are subject to regular change. This has consequences on the mathematical design but also the translation to hardware. In this thesis, we explore the use of Integrated Mission Design (IMD); a data-driven design...

Lagoons are connected to the sea by the presence of openings along their barriers. These openings, also known as tidal inlets, can either be natural or man-made and they highly determine the hydrodynamics within the lagoon system. Tidal inlet systems are found worldwide, and many of them are difficult to be understood due to their complex...

By referring to the conceptualism of the generation theory, this research observes the collaboration in project teams from a new angel. The theory of generations puts forward the idea, that people who are born in the same period shape a generation. Due to shared experiences, they also develop in a similar way and therefore share certain...
