  • Thompson, Mary Kathryn; Moroni, Giovanni; Vaneker, Tom; Fadel, Georges; R. Ian, Campbell; Gibson, Ian; Bernard, Alain; Schulz, Joachim; Graf, Patricia; Ahuja, Bhrigu; Martina, Filomeno (Elsevier, 2016-06-25)
    The past few decades have seen substantial growth in Additive Manufacturing (AM) technologies. However, this growth has mainly been process-driven. The evolution of engineering design to take advantage of the possibilities ...
  • Lanza, G.; Weiler, S.; Vogt, S. (Cranfield University Press, 2009-03-31)
    Not every product can be successfully sourced in low-cost countries. Disadvantageous cost structures or extremely complex workpiece designs are the most frequent reasons for failures. A design that has been tailored to ...
  • Goffin, Keith (Industrial Research Institute Inc, 2000-01-01)
    During new product development, R&D engineers consider a wide range of often conflicting requirements, including product features, cost, quality, and manufacturability. Another factor, which companies often neglect, is ...
  • Lockett, Helen; Ding, Jialuo; Williams, Stewart; Martina, Filomeno (Taylor & Francis, 2017-08-20)
    Wire + Arc Additive Manufacture (WAAM) is an additive manufacturing technology that can produce near net-shape parts layer by layer in an automated manner using welding technology controlled by a robot or CNC machine. WAAM ...
  • Mehnen, Jorn; Ding, J.; Lockett, Helen L.; Kazanas, P. (2010-04-19)
    Additive Layer Manufacture (ALM) is a technique whereby freeform structures are produced by building up material in layers. RUAM (Ready-to-Use Additive Layer Manufacturing) is an innovative concept for building large ...
  • Ioannou, Anastasia; Wang, Lin; Brennan, Feargal P. (Elsevier, 2017-05-09)
    Operational management is a key contributor in life cycle costs, especially for large scale assets which are in most times complex in structural hierarchy and with a large nominal service life. Decisions on the operational ...
  • D’Amelio, V.; Tomiyama, Tetsuo (Cranfield University Press, 2009-03-31)
    Intricate failures at the system integration phase of the design are mostly generated by interactions of product modules or/and engineering domains. Modules of the product are tested independently and when their integration ...
  • Wang, C-F.; Shen, Jian-Xin; Luk, Patrick Chi-Kwong; Fei, Wei-Zhong; Jin, Meng-Jia (Emerald Group Publishing Limited, 2011-12-31)
    In electric power steering (EPS), permanent magnet (PM) brushless ac (BLAC) motors offer distinct advantages over other electric motor types in terms torque smoothness, reliability and efficiency. The design procedure ...
  • Lefebvre, Arthur Henry; Norster, E. R. (College of Aeronautics, 1966-02)
    Introduction and Summary Perhaps the most important and, at the same time, most difficult Problem in the design and development of gas turbine combustion chambers, is that of achieving a satisfactory and consistent ...
  • Martins Pires, Rui Miguel (Cranfield University, 2007-04)
    Over the last few decades the design of high lift devices has become a very important part of the total aircraft design process. Reviews of the design process are performed on a regular basis, with the intent to improve ...
  • Colin de Verdiere, Mathieu (Cranfield University, 2004-02)
    The game of golf is enjoyed by a large number of people, from all over the world. According to the rules of golf, each player has to choose from a maximum of 14 clubs, before playing a shot. This makes the number of ...
  • Andrews, Faye (Cranfield UniversitySchool of Engineering, 2005)
    The aim of this project is To bring together current commercially available technology and relevant Microsystems Technology (MST) into a small, standardised spacecraft primary systems architecture, multiple units of which ...
  • Pitts, David G. (Cranfield University, 2008-01)
    There are a vast number of field–portable data loggers currently on the market. They differ greatly in terms of capability and complexity, in many cases being application or function specific. A survey was undertaken to ...
  • Assuncao, J. M. V. (Cranfield University, 1996-05)
    Many control problems are based on control objectives easily quantified and consequently realisable by standard control synthesis methods. When an unmanned aircraft navigates, it moves inside a complex environment due ...
  • Loxham, J. (College of Aeronautics, 1963-05)
    The Department of Production and Industrial Administration of The College of Aeronautics has made a detailed analysis into the performance of numerically controlled machine tools, and this shows that when these machines ...
  • Andreadis, Eleftherios (Cranfield University, 2011-10)
    The ventilation of industrial areas and tunnels is a safety requirement and characterizes the quality of a working environment. Low speed fans are used to achieve the required ventilation level. An attempt to design a ...
  • Houghton, D.S.; Chan, A. S. L. (College of Aeronautics, 1957-11)
    The optimum skin thickness, web thickness and web pitch to be used for a multi-cell box of given depth under a given bending load are obtained by two different methods, resulting in a graph where the optimum geometry ...
  • Kolios, Athanasios J.; Pintar, Matevz (MDPI AG, 2013-08-12)
    In order to obtain the maximum amount of energy from tidal stream extraction devices, deployment in large arrays should be studied. The area of seabed with favorable conditions is fairly limited; therefore layout spacing ...
  • Powell, E. A.; Boshier, G. C. (College of Aeronautics, 1967)
    This report outlines the aims of the project and procedures used to bring it to a successful conclusion. It also summarises the results of an investigation into the parameters which govern the specification of ...
  • Cooke, lain Carlyle. (Cranfield University, 1990-02)
