    In visible light communication (VLC), the data is transmitted by modulating the light emitting diode (LED). The data-rate is throttled by the narrow modulation bandwidth of LEDs, which becomes a barrier for attaining high ...
  • Grema, Alhaji Shehu; Cao, Yi (IEEE, 2013-07-25)
    In this paper, static and dynamic optimization of a reservoir waterflooding process for enhanced oil recovery was studied. The dynamic optimization was achieved using receding horizon (RH) algorithms. Two forms of RH which ...
  • Grema, Alhaji Shehu (Cranfield University, 2014-10)
    Waterflooding is a common type of oil recovery techniques where water is pumped into the reservoir for increased productivity. Reservoir states change with time, as such, different injection and production settings will ...
  • Osman, Muhammed; Case, Keith; Watts, Darren (Cranfield University Press, 2013-09-19)
    This paper presents a method for optimizing roughing operations in CNC machining particularly for parts production through a subtractive rapid manufacturing process. The roughing operation in machining is primarily used ...
  • Gulati, Ankush (Cranfield University, 2001-12)
    A major challenge faced by the Gas Turbine industry, both the users and the manufacturers is the reduction of life cycle costs and safe running of a gas turbine. A reduction in the costs can be achieved by reducing the ...

    Adsorptive wells arrays are an innovative outline of Permeable Reactive Barrier (PRBs) made of a definite number of passive deep wells opportunely distributed in the aquifer, known as PAB-D (Discontinuous Permeable Adsorptive ...
  • Abir, Jonathan; Longo, Stefano; Morantz, Paul; Shore, Paul (Elsevier, 2016-07-30)
    This paper presents a method for optimizing the performance of a real-time, long term, and accurate accelerometer based displacement measurement technique, with no physical reference point. The technique was applied in a ...
  • Fakhre, Ali; Tzanidakis, Konstantinos; Goulos, Ioannis; Pachidis, Vassilios; d'Ippolito, Roberto (American Helicopter Society International (AHS), 2015-07-30)
    This paper presents an integrated multidisciplinary rotorcraft design and optimization framework, deployed for the design and assessment of a conceptual rotorcraft powerplant configuration at mission level. The proposed ...
  • Mullaney, Kevin; Staines, Stephen; James, Stephen; Ralph, Tatam (IEEE, 2017-11-03)
    The process of fabricating tapered long period gratings (TLPGs) using a CO2 laser is described. The objective of this work is to optimize the CO2 laser based fabrication of TLPGs so that their transmission spectra are ...
  • Zou, Jizhao; Niu, Yuan; Tu, Wenxuan; Zhang, Qi; Yao, Yuechao; Zeng, Shaozhong; Lan, Tongbin; Wu, Hongliang; Zeng, Xierong; Zeng, Xierong (Electrochemical Society, 2019-10-14)
    Hierarchical clews of carbon nanobelts (CsCNBs) with ultrahigh specific surface area (2300 m2 g−1) and large pore volume (up to 1.29 cm3 g−1) has been successfully fabricated through carbonization and KOH activation of ...
  • Jia, Jishen; Wu, Shaomin (Elsevier, 2009-08-01)
    This paper presents the formulas of the expected long-run cost per unit time for a cold-standby system composed of two identical components with perfect switching. When a component fails, a repairman will be called in to ...
  • Horsfall, Ian; Watson, Celia H.; Champion, Stephen M. (American Society Mechanical Engineers, 2013-05-01)
    Many police body armor systems are dual purpose, offering both ballistic and knife resistanceby combining a flexible ballistic textile pack with a stiffer knife resistant layer.The two types of protection differ in materials ...
  • Djamaa, Badis; Richardson, Mark A. (2015-01-16)
    The Trickle Algorithm has enjoyed much popularity and widespread as a basic network primitive ensuring low-cost data consistency in lossy networks. Trickle was shaped by the so called short-listen problem hence imposing a ...

    Optimal design of laminated composite stiffened panels of symmetric and balanced layup with different number of T-shape stiffeners is investigated and presented. The stiffened panels are simply supported and subjected to ...
  • Kelly, L (College of Aeronautics, Cranfield, 1952-04)
    The present method for obtaining a climb technique for jet propelled aircraft do not include the effect of kinetic energy variation with height. By introducing the concept of ‘energy height’ to include the geometric height ...
  • Houghton, D. S. (College of Aeronautics, 1961-04)
    The surface stresses in band reinforced cylindrical pressure vessels are examined, and an equivalent stress determined by using the Mises- Hencky criterion. By comparing the equivalent stress to the band stress, the ...
  • Liu, Yifei (Cranfield University, 2011-01)
    Composite materials have been more and more used in aircraft primary structures such as wing and fuselage. The aim of this thesis is to identify an effective way to optimize composite wing structure, especially the stiffened ...
  • Johns, D. J. (College of Aeronautics, 1958-04)
    The optimum geometry of a multicell box of given depth, under a given bending moment and temperature distribution, is obtained. The method is general enough to permit the skin thickness to be either specified, e.g. by ...
