  • Hughes, E J (Department of Aerospace and Sensors, 2009-03-12)
    In the design of new, more sophisticated missile systems, simulations need to be realistic and fast. Realistic target models are just as important as realistic models of the missile, but have often been overlooked in the ...
  • Balleri, Alessio; Al-Armaghany, A.; Griffiths, H.; Tong, K.; Matsuura, T. (2013-08-25)
    We study the radar signature of a new type of wind turbine, named the Wind Lens. This design includes a flanged shroud around the turbine which concentrates the wind flow past the turbine blades and hence improves the ...
  • Anastacio, A; Knock, C (2016-07-11)
    This paper presents experimental results for the double ended initiation of cylindrical, explosive charges. Bare cylindrical charges of PE4 (RDX/binder 88/12 %) were used with length to diameter ratios of 1/3.7 to 5.75/1 ...
  • Shahadan, N. H.; Kamarudin, M. R.; Jamaluddin, M. H.; Yamada, Y. (Institute of Advanced Engineering and Science, 2017-04-01)
    For next generation of 5G mobile base station antennas, multibeam, multifrequency and low sidelobe characteristics requested. Simplify the feeding network will contribute a low feeder loss and frequency dependent. From the ...
  • Lindroos, Alf; Ringbom, Åsa; Heinemeier, Jan; Hodgins, Greg (Cambridge University Press, 2018-04-06)
    Lime lumps and bulk mortars show different 14C contamination when analyzed in several CO2 fractions isolated from the effervescence of an ongoing hydrolysis reaction. Age profiles of both materials are therefore highly ...
  • Dee, M. W.; Wengrow, D.; Shortland, Andrew J.; Stevenson, A.; Brock, Fiona; Bronk Ramsay, C. (Peeters Publishers., 2016-06-24)
    A number of absolute dating techniques are now used in archaeology, from dendrochronology to a variety of luminescence and radiometric methods.1 However, radiocarbon dating remains the most effective approach for the ...
  • Brock, F; Ostapkowicz, J; Wiedenhoeft, A C; Bull, I D (University of Arizona - Cambridge University Press, 2017-10-30)
    Since the mid 19th century, rare prehistoric wooden carvings and human skeletal remains have been dredged from Pitch Lake, Trinidad, during commercial asphalt mining. Establishing a chronology for these objects is challenging, ...
  • Nikolopoulos, D.; Valais, I.; Michail, C.; Bakas, A.; Fountzoula, C.; Cantzos, D.; Bhattacharyya, Debabrata; Sianoudis, I.; Fountos, G.; Yannakopoulos, P.; Panayiotakis, G.; Kandarakis, I. (Elsevier, 2016-06-14)
    This paper reports radioluminescence properties of the CdSe/ZnS quantum dots. Three quantum dot samples were prepared with concentrations 14.2 × 10−5 mg/mL, 21.3 × 10−5 mg/mL and 28.5 × 10−5 mg/mL, respectively. The ...
  • Paradissopoulos, Iordanis K. (Cranfield University, 1989-03)
    Two are the objectives of this thesis: To identify structural and cultural causes of ineffectiveness in a state-owned railway enterprise in the light of the management cybernetics area of knowledge. To assess the capacity ...
  • Ling, Daniel (Cranfield University, 2005)
    The aim of this thesis is to present a structured methodology which estimates Railway Infrastructure renewal and maintenance costs when there is a lack of quantitative cost data at the early stages of the project life ...
  • Buggy, Stephen J.; James, Stephen W.; Staines, Stephen; Carroll, R.; Kitson, P.; Farrington, D.; Drewett, L.; Jaiswal, J.; Tatam, Ralph P. (2016-03-22)
    The use of optical fibre Bragg grating (FBG) strain sensors to monitor the condition of safety critical rail components is investigated. Fishplates, switchblades and stretcher bars on the Stagecoach Supertram tramway in ...
  • Edwards, J. A. (Cranfield University, 1983-12)
    An experimental investigation into the effects of shock/wake and shock/flame interaction on the base pressure of axisymmetric bodies at Mach 2 has been carried out. This investigation has determined the effects of various ...
  • Stone, N (Department of Environmental and Ordnance Systems, 2009-11-25)
    The utilisation of near-infraredR aman spectroscopyfo r the discrimination of cancersa nd pre-cancers from normal tissue in the acro-digestive tract has been evaluated. A commercially available Raman microspectrometehr ...
  • Orr, L. E. (Cranfield University, 2010-03)
    The use of Raman spectroscopy in the detection and classification of malignancy within the human larynx and lymph nodes of the head and neck has been evaluated. Currently histopathology is considered the diagnostic gold ...
  • Coulon, Frederic; Colbeck, Ian (Science Impact Ltd, 2017-12-01)
    The impact of emissions from urban, agricultural and industrial areas on local air quality is a growing concern. However, understanding the identities, distribution and abundance of airborne microorganisms remains in its ...
  • Liu, Yonghuai; Yuen, Peter; Pang, Yanwei; Zhao, Yitian; Rosin, Paul L. (Wiley, 2019-05-10)
    This article gives an overview of range‐imaging techniques with an aim to let the reader better understand how the difficult issue, such as the registration of overlapping range images, can be approached and solved. It ...
  • Kissinger, Thomas; Charrett, Thomas O. H.; Tatam, Ralph P. (Optical Society of America (OSA), 2015-04-03)
    A novel signal processing technique using sinusoidal optical frequency modulation of an inexpensive continuous-wave laser diode source is proposed that allows highly linear interferometric phase measurements in a simple, ...
  • Kissinger, Thomas (Cranfield University, 2015-06)
    The ability to identify the range of an interferometric signal is very useful in interferometry, allowing the suppression of parasitic signal components or permitting several signal sources to be multiplexed. Two novel ...
