Proposal, project, practice, pause: developing a framework for evaluating smart domestic product engagement (2017)
Journal Article
Woodall, T., Rosborough, J., & Harvey, J. (in press). Proposal, project, practice, pause: developing a framework for evaluating smart domestic product engagement. AMS Review, doi:10.1007/s13162-017-0089-4. ISSN 1869-814X

Smart homes are fast becoming a reality, with smart TVs, smart meters and other such “smart” devices/systems already representing a substantial household presence. These, which we collectively term “smart domestic products” (SDPs), will need to be pr... Read More

Giving and sharing in the computer-mediated economy (2014)
Journal Article
Harvey, J., Smith, A., & Golightly, D. (2017). Giving and sharing in the computer-mediated economy. Journal of Consumer Behaviour, 16(4), 363-371. doi:10.1002/cb.1499

The paper examines how digital technology mediates the behaviour of consumers in three online systems that facilitate offline gift giving and sharing (Freecycle, Couchsurfing, and Landshare). Findings derived from a netnography and depth interviews r... Read More

Anticipating and responding to pavement performance as climate changes (2014)
Book
Dawson, A. (2014). Anticipating and responding to pavement performance as climate changes. In W. J. Steyn, K. Gopalakrishnan, & J. Harvey (Eds.), Climate Change, Energy, Sustainability and PavementsSpringer. doi:10.1007/978-3-662-44719-2_4

As climate changes, the performance of pavements can be expected to change too. More rainfall can be expected to lead to softer subgrades and less sup-port to the pavement structure with consequences for more rapid cracking and rut-ting. Even if the... Read More

Energy harvesting from pavements (2014)
Book
Dawson, A., Mallick, R., Hernandez, A. G., & Dehdezi, P. K. (2014). Energy harvesting from pavements. In W. J. Steyn, J. Gopalakrishnan, & J. Harvey (Eds.), Climate change, energy, sustainability and pavementsSpringer. doi:10.1007/978-3-662-44719-2_18

Against a background of the immense solar radiation incident with available pavement surfaces, the opportunity for energy to be harvested from pavements is investigated. While the emphasis is on the harvesting of solar-derived heat energy, some atten... Read More
