  • Chowdhury, S. A. (Cranfield University, 2015-09)
    Hydrogen is an explosive and flammable gas with a lower explosive limit of just 4% volume in air. It is important to monitor the concentration of hydrogen in a potentially hazardous environment where hydrogen may be ...
  • James, Stephen W.; Tatam, Ralph P. (Institute of Physics, 2006-07-01)
    A review of optical fibre devices employing nano-structured coatings is presented. Active and passive coatings, deposited using the Langmuirâ  Blodgett and electro-static self-assembly techniques, have been utilised ...
  • Kissinger, Thomas; Correia, Ricardo N.; Charrett, Thomas O. H.; James, Stephen W.; Tatam, Ralph P. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2016-02-18)
    Using a novel range-resolved interferometric signal processing technique based on the sinusoidal optical frequency modulation of a cost-effective laser diode, a fibre sensing approach termed fibre segment interferometry ...
  • Kissinger, Thomas; Charrett, Thomas O. H.; Tatam, Ralph P. (Iop Publishing Ltd, 2013-09-30)
    A novel optical signal processing scheme for multiplexing fibre segment interferometers is proposed. The continuous-wave, homodyne technique combines code-division multiplexing with single-sideband modulation. It uses only ...
  • Khaliq, Sarfraz (Cranfield University, 2003-03)
    Long period gratings (LPGs) are formed by inducing a permanent periodic modulation of the refractive index (RI) of the core of an optical fibre. The transmission spectrum of the LPG contains a series of attenuation bands ...
  • Ishaq, I. M. (Cranfield University, 2006)
    The influence of nano-structured overlays on the properties of fibre optic Long Period Gratings (LPGs) has been investigated. The presence of overlays of thickness of order 100 m is shown to significantly alter the ...
  • Partridge, Matthew (Cranfield University, 2012-12)
    The intrinsic stability of fibre optic based sensing systems offer a platform that is suited to hazardous waste detection in a wide range of environments. Over the last few years Cranfield University has been working on ...
  • Meng, L. C.; Cheng, K. W. E.; Luk, Patrick Chi-Kwong (2012-04-02)
    This paper proposes a novel square 9-coil (3×3) matrix system for induction cooking applications in order to improve the heating performance. By means of finite element method (FEM) analysis, three different exciting modes ...
  • Hodgkinson, Jane; Pride, Russ D.; Tandy, Chris; Moodie, Dave; Stewart, George (Society of Photo-optical Instrumentation Engineers (SPIE), 2000)
    A multi-point fibre optic sensor array for methane detection (“OMEGA”) has been developed and tested under semiquantitative field conditions. The new system employed wavelength modulation spectroscopy using a DFB laser ...
  • Kirisci, Vahit (Cranfield University, 1994-03)
    A literature review was conducted on several models which have been developed, based on Terzaghi's passive earth pressure theory, to describe the forces acting upon tillage implements during tillage operations. These models ...
  • Ball, Peter D.; Danert, Kerstin (1999-11-01)
    A prototype low-cost drilling rig was imported to Uganda in August 1999 and handed over to Mpigi District Government. Field trials of this machine were undertaken between 20 th August and 13 th November 1999. This work ...
  • Kriechbaumer, Thomas (Cranfield University, 2016-03)
    The construction of fish passes has been a longstanding measure to improve river ecosystem status by ensuring the passability of weirs, dams and other in- channel structures for migratory fish. Many fish passes have a ...
  • Rigou, P (Cranfield University, 2003-05)
    The contamination of soils, particularly by organic pollutants at industrial sites, has required the development of accurate methods of analysis to determine the nature and concentration of the pollutants, thereby allowing ...
  • Antille, Diogenes Luis; Godwin, R. J.; Sakrabani, Ruben; Seneweera, S.; Tyrrel, Sean; Johnston, A> E. (American Society of Agronomy, 2017-02-23)
    Field-scale experiments in four crop seasons established the agronomic performance of biosolids-derived organomineral fertilizers (OMF) for winter wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) production in England. Two OMF formulations ...
  • Antille, Diogenes Luis; Godwin, Richard J.; Sakrabanic, Ruben; Seneweerad, Saman; Tyrrel, Sean F.; Johnston, A. Edward (American Society of Agronomy, 2017-02-23)
