  • 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 ...
  • Cui, Hao; Yasaee, Mehdi; Hallett, Stephen R.; Partridge, Ivana K.; Allegri, Giuliano; Petrinic, Nik (Elsevier, 2017-11-23)
    Delamination resistance of composite laminates can be improved with through-thickness reinforcement such as Z-pinning. This paper characterises the bridging response of individual carbon fibre/BMI Z-pins in mixed mode ...
  • Giudici, Alessandro (Cranfield University, 2009-08-28)
    How organizations deal and manage strategic change is a fundamental problem in management studies. An important way increasingly chosen to implement strategies is through programmes. Programme Management is an emerging ...
  • Daniel, Elizabeth; Ward, John; Franken, Arnoud (Elsevier Science B.V., Amsterdam., 2014-06-01)
    Organizations use information systems project portfolio management (IS PMM) to reconfigure their IS resources and capabilities to match changing market and economic conditions. IS PPM can therefore be characterised as a ...
  • Ambrosini, Veronique; Bowman, Cliff; Collier, Nardine (Blackwell Publishing Ltd, 2009-03-30)
    The aim of this paper is to extend the concept of dynamic capabilities. Building on prior research, we suggest that there are three levels of dynamic capabilities which are related to managers‟ perceptions of ...
  • Maklan, Stan; Knox, Simon (Emerald Group Publishing Limited, 2009-12-01)
    The purpose of this paper is to illustrate the practical application of dynamic capabilities theory to improve investment decisions in customer relationship management (CRM). Design/methodology/approach – Action research ...
