  • Lohmühler, Bertram (Cranfield University, 2003-09)
    Product innovation is an important driver for manufacturing companies to remain competitive. Although new products are essential to high-technology companies, other sectors are also focusing on product innovation. As the ...
  • Sullman, Mark J. M. (Elsevier, 2017-01-11)
    The present research investigated the proportion of drivers that engage in a wide range of observable and unobservable driving distractions, along with a number of variables associated with driver distraction. A total of ...
  • Marina Martinez, Clara; Heucke, Mira; Wang, Fei-Yue; Gao, Bo; Cao, Dongpu (IEEE, 2017-07-04)
    Driver driving style plays an important role in vehicle energy management as well as driving safety. Furthermore, it is key for advance driver assistance systems development, toward increasing levels of vehicle automation. ...
  • Haro-Monteagudo, David; Solera, Abel; Andreu, Joaquín (Elsevier, 2016-11-14)
    Droughts are a major threat to water resources systems management. Timely anticipation results crucial to defining strategies and measures to minimise their effects. Water managers make use of monitoring systems in order ...
  • Bonneau, Luc Joseph Gabriel (Cranfield UniversityCranfield University at Silsoe, 2004-12)
    This thesis reports on an investigation of drought resistance of willow SRC genotypes. Experiments were conducted at Silsoe, Bedfordshire, in pots and field trials in 2002 and in lysimeters in 2003 to evaluate the range ...
  • Norster, E. R. (College of Aeronautics, 1964-09)
    Studies have been made into the behaviour of rotating drums as a means of atomisation and fuel injection for gas turbine engines. Radial holes in the wall of the drum discharge liquid continuously, forming jets which ...
  • Toro, E. F. (Cranfield Institute of Technology; College of Aeronautics, 1990)
  • Charrett, Thomas O. H.; Ford, Helen D.; Nobes, David S.; Tatam, Ralph P. (International Society for Optical Engineering; 1999, 2003-12-31)
    A Planar Doppler Velocimetry (PDV) illumination system has been designed which is able to generate two beams, separated in frequency by about 600 MHz. This allows a common-path imaging head to be constructed, using a ...
  • Guo, Hongyan; Liu, Jun; Cao, Dongpu; Chen, Hong; Yu, Ru; Lv, Chen (Elsevier, 2017-02-14)
    A novel description of dual-envelop-oriented path tracking issue is presented for fully automated vehicles which considers shape of vehicle as inner-envelop (I-ENV) and feasible road region as outer-envelop (O-ENV). Then ...
  • Karamolegkos, Konstantinos (Cranfield University, 2014-05-12)
    Aviation industry has a crucial impact on society on the grounds that it offers wider social and economic benefits. The demand of transportation is increasing and it is expected that the worldwide fleet of aircraft and ...
  • Pearce, Roger (College of Aeronautics, 1966)
  • Radok, J. R. M. (College of Aeronautics, Cranfield, 1952-04)
    Using oblique coordinates, integro-differential equations of motion of aircraft with swept wings are deduced from Hamilton’s Principle for the dynamic problems of aero-elasticity, i.e. for the problems of free vibrations, ...
  • Lim, Chee Wang (Cranfield University, 2009-12)
    A dynamically optimal design is essential for a motion system to perform high speed operation without compromising its accuracy, settling time and vibration specification. Good design practice which accounts for dynamic ...
  • Ryan, M. S. (Cranfield University, 1988-01)
    The aim of this thesis is to provide a design tool for the engineering analysis of the dynamics of a flexible riser system. The design tool is piovided in the form of a computer program. The two main requirements of ...
  • Wiedemann, Simon M.; Kirk, Colin L. (Cranfield University; School of Engineering, 2005-06-27)
    This paper presents a new approach for determination of vibration response of the triply articulated Space Shuttle Remote Manipulator System (SRMS) with large rigid overhanging payloads. In contrast to other researchers ...
  • Figueira, Catarina; Glen, John; Nellis, Joseph G. (Taylor & Francis, 2005-09-01)
    The UK economy has enjoyed an unprecedented period of positive economic growth since the early 1990s. The absence of recession for more than a decade has been accompanied by a sustained decline in the level of mortgage ...
  • Langley, R. S. (Cranfield University, 1983-02)
    This Thesis investigates the methods which are currently avail- able for the dynamic analysis of Offshore Mooring Terminals, particular regard being paid to Single Point Mooring (SPM) Terminals. Various aspects of the ...
  • Appleby-Thomas, G. J.; Hazell, P. J.; Stennett, C.; Cooper, G.; Cleave, R. (2011-06-15)
    The dynamic response of both a pure and nano-reinforced polyurethane replacement resin (PRR) have been investigated using plate impact techniques. Similar U-P-U- S Hugoniot equations of state have been established for ...
  • Shepherd, C. J.; Appleby-Thomas, G. J.; Hazell, P. J.; Allsop, D. F. (AIP American Institute of Physics, 2009-12-31)
    In order to characterise the effect of projectiles it is necessary to understand the mechanism of both penetration and resultant wounding in biological systems. Porcine gelatin is commonly used as a tissue simulant in ...
