  1. Design and Assessment of Adaptive Photovoltaic Envelopes 

    Jayathissa, Prageeth (2017)
    Adaptive photovoltaic envelopes have the potential to improve building energy performance by controlling natural lighting and solar heat gains, while simultaneously generating electricity to match the building demand. This study analyses the potential of adaptive photovoltaic envelopes, from the design process to its evaluation. The study first presents a performative design environment that combines multiple technological branches into ...

  5. Overindebtedness Among the Poor: Measurement, Causes and Policies 

    Smits, Joeri (2017)
    This thesis investigates the relationship between borrowing behavior on the one hand, and financial distress and overindebtedness on the other hand, in urban Uganda. The data collection during my PhD was supported by the Independent Evaluation Unit of the KfW Development Bank, one of the leading investors in microfinance. It was part of a collaborative research project on financial struggling among microcredit clients and non-clients in ...

  7. The Importance of Conformational Dynamics for Drug Discovery Exemplified with TNFα and AGP1 — an NMR Study 

    Hofmann, Daniela (2017)
    Protein-ligand interactions lie at the heart of most biological and medical processes. To lay the groundwork for a mechanistic understanding of complex biological networks, a detailed description of the associated proteins, their roles, and their interaction partners is essential. Furthermore, a detailed description of protein-ligand interactions is of pharmaceutical interest, as small molecules targeting proteins constitute the basis for ...

  9. Mobile Mental Health Information System for People with Depression 

    Wahle, Fabian (2017)
    Mental disorders belong to a significant and serious disease pattern with an increasing prevalence worldwide. Due to limited health personnel and financial resources, scalability of mental health services and tailored care of individuals are two key barriers for successful treatment. Scalable mental health information systems (MHISs) are expected to address these barriers. Thus, from an information system design perspective, it is of ...

  11. Transient Phosphorus Species in Combustion 

    Liang, Shuyu (2017)
    Studying the chemistry of organophosphorus compounds (OPCs) at high temperature and understanding their mechanisms have gained increasing attention in fields of fuel catalysis and flame inhibition for polymeric materials. Reactive phosphorus species produced at high temperature are kinetically unstable and known to undergo catalytic reactions which benefit the aforementioned applications. Since long characterizing these short-lived ...

  12. Mechanical force modulates binding of Interleukin-7 to Fibronectin 

    Ortiz Franyuti, Daniela (2017)
    The extracellular matrix (ECM) plays an important role in cell regulation, development, and homeostasis. Not only does it provide a structural scaffold for cell migration and interaction, but also acts as a deposit for cytokines and chemokines that regulate cellular function. Cells can modify the structure, composition, and biochemical characteristics of the ECM, and are able to apply mechanical forces that can alter the ECM and it ...

  13. Motion Planning in Dynamic Environments with Application to Self-Driving Vehicles 

    Schwesinger, Ulrich (2017)
    This thesis is concerned with the development of trajectory planning approaches targeting autonomous driving applications in dynamic environments shared with other traffic participants. The goal is to enable mobile robots to operate in challenging environments, characterized by narrow spaces and close proximity of other agents. With their broad range of private and commercial applications reaching from logistics to valet parking to ...

  14. Design and fabrication of heterogeneous materials architectures and their applications to tissue engineering 

    Rys, Jan (2017)
    Engineered heterogeneous materials have gained a lot of research interest in recent years. Materials with locally changing physical properties possess superior properties over their homogeneous counterparts. Especially in applications with multifold functional requirements the introduction of heterogeneities unlashes its full potential. The design of engineered heterogeneous materials can be achieved by two fundamentally different approaches: ...
