  1. Cities Knowledge Graph: bridging human and artificial intelligence to support synthesis in city planning 

    Herthogs, Pieter (2022)
    Planning and managing the growth of cities today and into the future is widely regarded as essential to address the challenge of climate change and the host of associated issues that underpin long-term liveability and sustainability. In a rapidly urbanising world, city planning professionals need to integrate ever more data, tools, and targets, with planners weaving together inputs from different domains, departments, and stakeholders ...

  2. Sparse spectral surrogate models for deterministic and stochastic computer simulations 

    Lüthen, Nora (2022)
    Computer simulations are an invaluable tool for modeling and investigating real-world phenomena and processes. However, as any model, simulations are affected by uncertainty caused by imperfect knowledge or natural variability of their parameters, initial conditions, or input values. This leads to uncertainty in the model response, which needs to be quantified to make subsequent conclusions and decisions trustworthy. To alleviate the ...

  6. Is cycling a way out of transport policies dead end? 

    Axhausen, Kay W. (2022)
    Bicycles and e-bikes, in particular, are competitors for the car, but also public transport in urban areas. The limited amount of road space now made available to them and the generally sorry maintenance of the generally limited amount of dedicated facilities make them unattractive for a large share of the population. The high historical usage of the cycle tells us, that there is no law of nature behind the currently low shares. Transport ...

  7. Urban Planning and Design for Active Mobility 

    Maheshwari, Tanvi (2022)
    Every day we make travel decisions, when we choose where to go to access services, like shopping or leisure activities, when to go, and how to get there. Most of us are limited in our decision making by external constraints, for example, our inability to choose our place and time of work (although this is becoming more flexible now since the onset of the pandemic), budget constraints or physical limitations. But in some cases, these ...

  10. Counterurbanisations 

    Topalović, Milica (2022)
    Can we imagine a territorial project of (agro)ecological regeneration? The role of urban and territorial design has been undergoing a paradigm shift, recast from a design as enabler of urbanisation processes driving growth of cities and industrialisation of the land, toward a design that is meant to repair social and environmental damages associated with these processes. Within such emerging approaches, a designer engages with notions of ...

  11. Research Data Management in (Public) History 

    Mähr, Moritz (2022)
    The production of a comprehensive history of the city of Basel has been underway at the University of Basel since 2018. More than 70 authors are investigating the past 2200 years and preparing 10 volumes for print. In 2017, the Stadt.Geschichte.Basel Foundation, which is carrying out the project, made a commitment to the canton of Basel-Stadt to make the research data available to the public via an online portal. We interpret this commitment ...

  14. Don't compress the compressor (model): Integrated design of refrigerants and heat pumps 

    Neumaier, Lisa; Schilling, Johannes; Roskosch, Dennis; et al. (2022)
    Vapor-compression heat pumps are a key technology for decarbonizing our energy systems. Due to more stringent regulations and new applications, selecting efficient and environmentally friendly refrigerants for vapor-compression heat pumps is still an open research question. To evaluate potential refrigerants concerning their actual process performance, systematic refrigerant-selection methods employ process models. These process models ...
