  • Carrasco-Munoz Y Guerra, Jacinto (Cranfield University, 2012-01)
    Existing test and analytical methods (theoretical and numerical) are normally restricted to thin laminate components, which cannot accurately represent the 3D stress state behaviour of the so called Ultra Thick Laminates ...
  • Salonitis, Konstantinos (Springer, 2016-03-03)
    Additive manufacturing technology promises to revolutionise the way products are manufactured and supplied to the customer. Existing design methods, however, do not take full advantage of the additive manufacturing process ...
  • 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)
