Extensive transportation infrastructure is crucial for enabling efficient transportation and fostering economic development. However, the operation of roadways contributes to escalating environmental and societal issues, including noise pollution and carbon emissions. To achieve a balance between economy, environment, and society, growing focus...

Precipitation is a profoundly important meteorological process and a crucial component of the water cycle. Thus, the continuous and reliable monitoring of precipitation at global scale is fundamental for scientific sectors such as numerical weather prediction and hydrology. However, accurately estimating precipitation, its type and intensity at...

Metal–organic frameworks (MOFs) are a class of hybrid materials with metal-based inorganic nodes connected by organic linkers via strong coordination bonds. These building blocks can be arranged in 3-D crystalline lattices to synthesize structures with varying pore sizes and a variety of structures (tuneability). These hybrid materials possess...

Strong intergenerational relationships can provide emotional support and stability for both grandparents and grandchildren. Technology tools have been proven to be beneficial in connecting grandchildren and grandparents. Prior work mainly examined how to use technology to connect children and their grandparents over a distance. Those collocated...

This thesis addresses the increasing vulnerabilities in modern supply chains, particularly within the maritime industry. Emphasizing the crucial role of procurement in risk mitigation, the study challenges conventional lean management, advocating for agile supply chain strategies. It introduces the Integrated Supplier Matrix (ISM) to enhance...

“The Letter Rack” is a speculative exercise in exploring the emergence of new spatial relationships when we stop thinking of future cities in terms of figure/ground duality and instead start looking at them as a continuous assemblage of forms and signs.<br/><br/>This form of digital divertissement in drawings originates from the reinterpretation...

The surface of supported heterogeneous catalysts often contains adsorbed water and hydroxyl groups even when water is not directly added to the reaction stream. Nonetheless, the reactivity of adsorbed water and hydroxyl groups is rarely considered. We demonstrate that water and hydroxyl groups can not only directly participate in the...

Protein-based biopharmaceuticals require high purity before final formulation to ensure product safety, making process development time consuming. Implementation of computational approaches at the initial stages of process development offers a significant reduction in development efforts. By preselecting process conditions, experimental...

The relationship between humans and nature is in permanent change. Where the city and nature used to be seen as enemies that needed to be kept away from each other, the current paradigm looks at a more symbiotic relationship. In this, man is seen as part of nature, and the city is seen as a determining factor in providing conditions for a rich...

In Industry 5.0, cognitive robots and workers will engage in evolving and reciprocal relations, which we call worker-robot relationships (WRRs). To enable evidence-based work futures with workers, we must co-develop WRRs and understand their impact on work, workers, management, and society. To this end, we posit that the HRI field should work...

The growth of dating apps has changed the way relationships are formed. These applications have enabled users to widen their dating pool of potential partners through profile recommendations based on proximity and shared interests. However, dating app usage was also found to impact well-being negatively, with the AI systems of these platforms,...

Veldhuizen, H.V. (author)
Covalent organic frameworks (COFs) are a subclass of hyper-crosslinked polymers that contain ordered nanoporosity within their polymer network. Control over pore size and shape, as well as structure regularity, is obtained through careful selection of the monomeric building blocks and the synthesis reaction conditions. This has led to a vast...

The development of Fully Autonomous Vehicles would fundamentally change the nature of user interactions, behaviors, needs, and activities within vehicles. Passengers who are free from driving would expect to undertake diverse in-vehicle Non-Driving-Related Tasks (NDRTs) to keep themselves occupied and free from boredom. Conversational Artificial...

Traditionally, conventional consultancies provide operational guidance to customers. However, market demands have shifted towards a human centred approach, leading to an increase in design consultancies. Design consultancies deliver not only great results but also introduce innovative ways of thinking through a process-driven approach differing...

As a result of decreasing competition within the procurement of large construction projects in the Dutch construction sector, the need arises to understand the mechanisms behind the competition. Especially how decisions by clients on the procurement of construction projects impact the number of competitors. When this is understood, clients can...

Academic research is inherently cooperative, with researchers exchanging information through formal publications as well as direct messaging. Academia are, however, becoming increasingly competitive: limited financial resources and research spots, among other things, may now affect how researchers cooperate and interact in general. In the...

As artificial intelligence (AI) technology progressively integrates into daily life and domestic environments, it instigates a pressing inquiry: What new spatial implications can arise from the integration of artificially intelligent technologies within homes, and what role can these AI technologies play in reinforcing social interaction among...

Water and the relationship we have with it are disloca- ted in the contemporary context of the city. Present-day structures of society represent water as a human made commodity, whilst it will always be an elusive element of nature, the human body and the environment. How can we redesign city water into practices that reconnect us to the element...

The concept of circular economy has gained popularity as an affordable and viable solution to housing problems, providing a cyclical alternative flow model that reuses materials. Despite the Netherlands being one of the first countries to move towards circular housing, implementation issues and a lack of motivation from some stakeholders remain....
