    This paper presents the development and application of a computational framework for the aerodynamic design of separate-jet exhaust systems for Very-High-Bypass-Ratio (VHBR) gas-turbine aero-engines. An analytical approach ...
  • Patchigolla, Kumar; Oakey, John E. (Elsevier, 2013-08-05)
    In open literature, there is little information available with regards to the engineering and technological issues for material corrosion, in relation to high pressure supercritical CO2 pipeline transport from single point ...
  • Brighenti, Giovanni D.; Orts-Gonzalez, Pau Lluis; Sanchez-de-Leon, Luis; Zachos, Pavlos K. (2017-04-20)
    With the recent drive towards higher thermal efficiencies and lower emission levels in the power generation market, advanced cycle power plants have become an increasingly appealing option. Among these systems, humid air ...
  • Tiwari, Ashutosh; Alcock, Jeffrey R.; Turner, Christopher J. (Inderscience, 2016-12-01)
    This paper presents the current state of microfluidic design from a practitioner’s perspective. The capture of microfluidic design practice was facilitated through a combination of industry survey and expert interviews, ...
  • Dakin, Samuel (Cranfield University, 2013-10)
    A variety of pathologies can cause injury to the spinal cord and hinder movement. A range of equipment is available to help spinal injury sufferers move their affected limbs. One method of rehabilitation is functional ...
  • Baxter, David; Gao, X.; Roy, Rajkumar (Cad Solutions, 2008-01-01)
    Product knowledge support needs are compared in two companies with different production volumes and product complexity. Knowledge support requirements identified include: function, performance data, requirements data, ...
  • Melsom, A. (College of Aeronautics, 1968)
    Starting from the initial concept of a small Numerically Controlled lathe, a measurement and actuation system has been developed. An 'absolute" fluidic control system with rotary and linear encoders has been chosen and ...
  • Powell, N. (College of Aeronautics, 19)
    This report outlines the design of a precision turning machine with a limited milling facility which incorporates a fluidic numerical control system. It contains an introduction to the project together with summaries ...
  • College of Aeronautics, (Cranfield) (College of Aeronautics, 1969)
    1. INTRODUCTION The design of an automatic assembly machine with versatility in application was undertaken as a group project by post-graduate students attending a course in production technology. This report summarises ...
  • College of Aeronautics, (Cranfield) (College of Aeronautics, 19)
    This report describes the approach to the design of an automatic versatile assembly machine of modular construction. Details of the design of the conveyor module, the platen upon which the assembly is mounted and the ...
  • Scarffe, M. F. (College of Aeronautics, 1968-06)
    A survey has been made to determine the factors influencing the design of a precision turning machine with limited milling facilities. Seventy six replies were received, have been analysed and histograms plotted and ...
  • Jones, R. V. (College of Aeronautics, 1968)
    This report outlines the design of a versatile low cost 'Precision Turning Machine with a Limited Milling Facility' which automatically produces work accurately to the required fora at a high production rate. The moving ...
  • Sagoo, Jeevan (Cranfield University, 2012-09)
