This report documents research started in 2002 that identified the potential need for explicit neck injury criteria and tolerances for certification of side-facing seats in aircraft. Laboratory sled tests with full-body postmortem human subjects proved that there is a substantial risk for serious (potentially lethal) neck injuries under...

This paper describes the results of vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) and infrastructure-to-vehicle (I2V) experiments implementing cooperative maneuvering for three different vehicles driving automatically. The cars used were cybercars from the Institut National de Recherche en Informatique et Automatique (INRIA), (France), which are fully automated road...

Instructors often have to deal with the fact that available synthetic environments do not match their specific training requirements. Geo-specific terrains are not guaranteed to provide the desired setting. Dedicated geo-typical terrain databases can help solve this issue because they can be modeled explicitly to match training requirements....

This document is the deliverable D.2.3.2 of the CASPER project. It has been done in the framework of WP2 “Child human body modeling” task 2.3 “Develop specific human segments and whole body models per age”. This task aims to provide the meshing of the whole body models of the 1 year old child (1 Y.O.C.) and six months old child (6 M.O.C). This...

As workplace air measurements of manufactured nanoparticles are relatively expensive to conduct, models can be helpful for a first tier assessment of exposure. A conceptual model was developed to give a framework for such models. The basis for the model is an analysis of the fate and underlying mechanisms of nanoparticles emitted by a source...

Problems with estimating trust in information sources are common in time constraining and ambiguous situations and often lead to a decrease of team performance. Humans lack the resources to track the integrity of information and thus tend to over- or under-rely on advice from support systems. Two types of adaptive team support have been...

Although the discussions around the market introduction of electric vehicles (EVs) currently revolve mainly around technical issues related to the vehicles and infrastructure, also user preferences play a large role in the process and can be a determining factor for success. Due to different vehicle characteristics compared to conventional cars,...

Economic analysis of climate change has become a fundamental instrument for the multidisciplinary research of this global environmental challenge and is increasingly used for informing the ongoing discussion between climate scientists and policy makers. Much progress has been achieved in climate change economics over the past decade, which has...

Teams have become the norm for operating in dangerous and complex situations. To investigate how physical threat affects team performance, 27 threeperson teams engaged in a complex planning and problem-solving task, either under physical threat or under normal conditions. Threat consisted of the possibility that during task performance the...

In this paper, we discuss several ways in which the capability approach offers a valuable and useful perspective to better understand and organize processes of designing ICT. First, we present the WeCare project, in which the authors work and which will serve as an example of applying the capability approach. Next, we introduce our understanding...

In the summer, the available of solar heat exceeds the total heat demand of a building, but in the winter the heat demand is exceeding the solar supply. For the future conversion of a passive house into an energy neutral house, a solution is to store the excess of solar energy in summer, and to use it to meet the heat demand in winter. Water is...

Biomass is expected to play a major role in the transition to sustainable energy production. However, biomass is a difficult fuel and most thermal conversion processes have very stringent fuel specifications. Torrefaction offers the potential to convert biomass into attractive solid biofuels. It involves heating in the absence of oxygen to a...

Absenteeism in the Netherlands rose steadily in the 1960s and 70s, driven by legislation that made it attractive for employees to take long-term sick leave. Changes in laws on absenteeism and disability seem to have been a driving force behind the fall in rates since the early 1980s and employers have become more active in encouraging workers to...

Bio-inhibition of buildings and structures is an important issue. In many cases building materials have biocides added to prevent growth of micro-organisms. Growth of microorganisms on building materials has several negative effects; (1) Aesthetic damage, e.g. fungi, algae grow on the material, resulting in early replacement and high cleaning...
