  • Johnstone, lain (Cranfield University, 2002)
    The recent years, the aerospace industry in particular has embraced and actively pursued the development of stronger high performance materials, namely nickel based superalloys and hardwearing steels. This has resulted ...
  • Almond , R. J. (Cranfield University, 1999-12)
    The principal objective of this research was to produce a series of extremely stiff and thermally stable porous ceramic bearings, and to expand the performance envelope of fluid film technology beyond that currently ...
  • Roach, Christopher James (Cranfield University, 2001-02)
    Porous air bearings enjoy some important advantages over conventional air bearing types such as increased load carrying capacity, higher stiffness and improved damping. However, these types of bearings have yet to ...
  • Durazo-Cardenas, Isidro Sergio (Cranfield University, 2003-10)
    Porous-ceramic hydrostatic bearings have been recently developed. These bearings have demonstrated an exceptional overall performance when compared with conventional technology bearings. However, despite all the benefits, ...
  • Naing, Soe (Cranfield University, 2004-06)
    The work presented in this thesis was undertaken as part of the three-year ‘Jigless Aerospace Manufacture’ (JAM) project which was set-up to investigate and address the significant scientific, technological and economic ...
  • Comley, Paul (Cranfield University, 2005-03)
    The introduction of high performance grinding machines in combination with the latest superabrasive technology has the potential to impact significantly on existing process chains. The aim of the research was to look at ...
  • Wang, S. H. (Cranfield University, 2000-07)
    Titanium alloys are used extensively in the aerospace industry due to their high specific strength and excellent corrosion resistance. However, their poor thermal conductivity and high chemical reactivity with tool ...
  • Knuefermann, Markus M. W. (Cranfield UniversitySchool of Industrial and Manufacturing Science, 2003-11)
    The main aim of this work was the machining by hard turning of surfaces with optical surface quality. A numerical target had been set as a surface roughness Ra = 10nm. It has been shown that achieving roughness of that ...
  • Gim, Taeweon (Cranfield University, 1997-04)
    This thesis addresses a comprehensive approach to understanding the time-varying thermal errors in machine tools. Errors in machine tools are generally classified as being time or spatial dependent. Thermal errors are ...
  • Kwan, Y. B. P (Cranfield University, 1996-12)
    Despite their well known superior load and stiffness characteristics, the wide-spread use of porous aerostatic bearings in preference to other bearing types has been hampered by difficulties in controlling the permeability ...
