  • Walch, Nicholas John (Cranfield University, 2016-01)
    The ability to inexpensively and reliably detect organic compounds is important across a multitude of different areas of science. Benzene ring functional groups are found in a wide variety of biological molecules, (such ...
  • Sagade, Abhay A.; Aria, Adrianus Indrat; Edge, Steven; Melgari, Paolo; Gieseking, Bjoern; Bayer, Bernhard C.; Meyer, Jannik C.; Bird, David; Brewer, Paul; Hofmann, Stephan (Nature Publishing Group, 2017-10-23)
    Permeation barrier films are critical to a wide range of applications. In particular, for organic electronics and photovoltaics not only ultra-low permeation values are required but also optical transparency. A laminate ...
  • Kennedy, A. J. (College of Aeronautics, 1959-11)
    The state of fundamental knowledge on the subject of graphite and the graphitisation process is reviewed. The principle methods of manufacture may be considered to include (1) conventional graphitisation of a coke ...
  • Siwal, Samarjeet Singh; Zhang, Qibo; Sun, Changbin; Thakur, Vijay Kumar (MDPI, 2019-12-18)
    Here, we report the synthesis of copper–manganese alloy (CuMnO2) using graphitic carbon nitride (gCN) as a novel support material. The successful formation of CuMnO2-gCN was confirmed through spectroscopic, optical, and ...
  • He, Shaoming; Lee, Chang-Hun (AIAA, 2017-07-31)
    This paper proposes a new optimal guidance law that directly uses (instead of compensating for) gravity for accelerating missiles. The desired collision triangle that considers both gravity and the vehicle’s axial acceleration ...
  • Xu, Zhengjia; Ivan, Petrunin; Li, Teng; Tsourdos, Antonios (IEEE, 2019-11-21)
    The aeronautical spectrum becomes increasingly congested due to raising number of non-stationary users, such as unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). With the growing demand to spectrum capacity, cognitive radio technology is ...
  • Thakur, Vijay Kumar; Vennerberg, Danny; Kessler, Michael R. (American Chemical Society, 2014-05-19)
    Polypropylene is one of the most widely used commercial commodity polymers; among many other applications, it is used for electronic and structural applications. Despite its commercial importance, the hydrophobic nature ...
  • Donnelly, Myles (Cranfield University, 2015-01)
    A prominent claim within the literature is that ‘green’ firms are fundamentally more resilient to financial, environmental and social shocks, relative to firms that take no environmental action. To test this, this study ...
  • Mansouri, S. Afshin; Aktas, Emel; Besikci, Umut (Elsevier, 2015-09-09)
    Sustainability considerations in manufacturing scheduling, which is traditionally influenced by service oriented performance metrics, have rarely been adopted in the literature. This paper aims to address this gap by ...
  • Habib, Farooq; Ali, Abdul; Bentley, Yongmei; Cao, Guangming (Taylor & Francis, 2016-09-13)
    This paper investigates the impact of green supply chain management (GSCM) practices on the performance of UK food retail small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). A quantitative approach using a non-probability sampling ...
  • Williams, Adrian G.; Chatterton, Julia C.; Murphy-Bokern, Donal; Brander, M.; Audsley, Eric (2010-09-21)
    This work determined the potential to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from the UK food system by 70% from a 2005 baseline. A food consumption-orientated inventory was produced including primary agricultural production, ...
  • Smith, Laurence G.; Kirk, Guy J. D; Jones, Philip J.; Williams, Adrian G. (Nature Publishing Group, 2019-10-22)
    Agriculture is a major contributor to global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and must feature in efforts to reduce emissions. Organic farming might contribute to this through decreased use of farm inputs and increased soil ...
  • Pidou, Marc; Memon, Fayyaz Ali; Stephenson, Tom; Jefferson, Bruce; Jeffrey, Paul (Thomas Telford, 2007-01-01)
    Wastewater is an immense resource which could have significant applications in regions of water scarcity. Greywater has particular advantages in that it is a large source with a low organic content. Through critical analysis ...
  • Goteng, Gokop; Tiwari, Ashutosh; Roy, Rajkumar (2007-03-01)
    Grid Computing is fast gaining ground both within academia and the commercial sectors. It has shifted from its traditional scientific-based applications to serviceoriented problem solving environments for commerce and ...
  • Goteng, Gokop; Tiwari, Ashutosh; Roy, Rajkumar (Cranfield University Press, 2009-03-31)
    The emerging grid technology is defined as an infrastructure for secure and coordinated large-scale resource sharing. In this paper, we describe the architecture and grid services of DECGrid. DECGrid enables distributed ...
  • Boshier, G. C. (College of Aeronautics, 1967)
    An investigation has been made into the sequential control of a grinding machine using electro—pneumatic, ball valve and wall attachment switching elements. Each system has been tested on a grinding cycle simulator ...
  • Comley, Paul; Morantz, Paul; Shore, Paul; Tonnellier, Xavier (Technische Rundschau, Hallwag Publishers; 1999, 2011-04-21)
    The next generation of ground based telescopes require many hundreds of metre scale off-axis mirrors. In this paper the grinding of a 1.45m scale Zerodur® mirror segment for the European Extremely Large Telescope (E-ELT) ...
  • Comley, Paul (Cranfield University, 2005-03)
