1. On the other side of change : Exploring the role that design can play in retaining sustainable doings
Sammanfattning : The world keeps changing more rapidly. Induced by context change disruptions such as individual life-course changes and macro socio-economical events, the way people carry out their everyday life doings is also undergoing a dynamic transition process, which may open up windows of opportunity for design to transit people’s behavior in a more sustainable direction.

Geometrical variation originates either from the manufacturing of the parts or from the assembly process. LÄS MER

Sammanfattning : Dredging activities at Ports and Harbors are inevitable for the safe navigation of ships and vessels. Dredged material may range from very fine and contaminated sediments to sand and gravels. While, granular dredged material can be directly utilized in civil engineering applications, fine sediments may require further treatment before use. LÄS MER
