The impact of cultural aspects on the design process. In D. Marjanović (Ed.), DS 32: Proceedings of DESIGN 2004, the 8th International Design Conference. , (1475-1480
Due to increasing globalisation, the development of products is no longer restricted to one place, it is more and more characterised by distributed design teams, who work in d...

Adaptive Dynamic Control of a Wind Generator

Conference Proceeding
Jaen-Sola, P., Anaya-Lara, O., & Dominguez-Navarro, J. A. (2013)
Adaptive Dynamic Control of a Wind Generator. In Proceedings of 9th PhD Seminar on Wind Energy in Europe
The main aim of the present project is to obtain a better understanding of the dynamic control of a wind turbine. To accomplish this, an adaptive dynamic controller was develo...

Weather impact on containership routing in closed seas: A chance-constraint optimization approach

Journal Article
Kepaptsoglou, K., Fountas, G., & Karlaftis, M. G. (2015)
Weather impact on containership routing in closed seas: A chance-constraint optimization approach. Transportation Research Part C: Emerging Technologies, 55, 139-155. doi:10.1016/j.trc.2015.01.027
Weather conditions have a strong effect on the operation of vessels and unavoidably influence total time at sea and associated transportation costs. The velocity and direction...

A design tool for predicting the performances of light pipes

Journal Article
Jenkins, D., Muneer, T., & Kubie, J. (2005)
A design tool for predicting the performances of light pipes. Energy and Buildings, 37(5), 485-492. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.enbuild.2004.09.014
