  • Kallis, Kyriakos Xenofon (Cranfield University, 2012-03)
    Agricultural residues and energy crops constitute an important part of the energy chain although they are not being used extensively in the energy generation processes since they are associated with disadvantages such ...
  • Baker, C. J.; Smith, G. E.; Balleri, Alessio; Holderied, M.; Griffiths, H. D. (IEEE Institute of Electrical and Electronics, 2014-03-25)
    Nature provides a number of examples where acoustic echolocation is the primary sensing modality, the most well-known of these being the bat, whale and dolphin. All demonstrate a remarkable ability to "see with sound". ...
  • Biela, Anna (Cranfield University, 2010-07)
    Diabetes mellitus is a growing health problem worldwide. Suitable long-term control and management of this disease are enabled by determination of glycated haemoglobin (HbA1c) in blood. The results are given as %HbA1c ...
  • Williams, T. R.; Stephenson, Tom (School of Water Sciences, Cranfield University, 1999-03-03)
    Biological aerated filters operate as fixed film systems in which micro-organisms grow on a submerged fixed structured or granular inert support media within an aerated reactor (Stephenson et al., 1993). Periodic backwashing ...
  • Ayotamuno, M. J.; Kogbara, R. B.; Ogaji, S. O. T.; Probert, S. D. (Elsevier, 2006-11)
    A combination of treatments, consisting of the application of fertilizers and oxygen exposure, was evaluated in situ during a period of six weeks. Conditions of a major spill were simulated by sprinkling crude-oil on ...
  • Tyrrel, Sean F.; Seymour, I.; Harris, Jim A. (Elsevier, 2008-11)
    The evaluation of two waste-derived materials used to treat compost leachate by biofiltration is described in this paper. Nine biofilters were constructed using 240 l, high density polyethylene containers. Three containers ...
  • Elyassi, Ali (Cranfield University, 1997-08)
    The natural breakdown of three pesticides on the UK Red Lis~ dieldrin~ simazine and trifluralin in water and soil varied with environmental conditions. In both sterile and unsterile water trifluralin was degraded to some ...
  • Giakoumaki, Elsa (Cranfield University, 2003-09)
    This thesis describes the development and evaluation of a number of biosensors for food applications. The first part of this thesis deals with the development of Surface Plasmon Resonance (SPR) biosensor systems, ...
  • Loose, Elizabeth (Cranfield University, 2009-06)
    Introduction A biosensor may be described as a sensor incorporating a biological element such as an enzyme, antibody, nucleic acid, microorganism or cell. A biosensor should exhibit both shelf-stability and operation ...
  • Tothill, Ibtisam E. (Wageningen Academic Publishers, 2011-11-01)
    Mycotoxin analysis and detection in food and drinks is vital for ensuring food quality and safety, eliminating and controlling the risk of consuming contaminated foods, and complying with the legislative limits set by ...
  • Versteegen, Audrey (Cranfield University, 2010)
    Over half of the carbon (C) taking part in the global C cycle is held in terrestrial systems. Because of the sensitivity of the C cycle to changes in such soil-based pools of carbon, it is important to understand the ...
  • Piletska, Elena V.; Piletsky, Sergey A.; Karim, K.; Terpetschnig, E.; Turner, Anthony P. F. (Elsevier Science B.V., Amsterdam., 2004-02-16)
    The composition of new molecularly imprinted polymers (MIPs) specific for biotin was optimised using molecular modelling software. Three functional monomers: methacrylic acid (MAA), 2-(trifluoromethyl)acrylic acid (TFAA) ...
  • Kokkora, Maria I. (Cranfield UniversitySchool of Applied Sciences, 2008-03)
    The landfilling of biodegradable waste is proven to contribute to environmental degradation. Compost use in agriculture is increasing as both an alternative to landfilling for the management of biodegradable waste, as well ...
  • Grafius, Darren R.; Corstanje, Ron; Siriwardena, Gavin M.; Plummer, Kate E.; Harris, Jim A. (Springer, 2017-06-28)
    Context Connectivity is fundamental to understanding how landscape form influences ecological function. However, uncertainties persist due to the difficulty and expense of gathering empirical data to drive or to validate ...
  • Lombardi, F; Griffiths, H D; Balleri, A (IET, 2017-10)
    With the proliferation of low-intensity conflict, landmines have proven to be one of the weapons of choice for both government and guerrilla forces around the world. Recent improvements to mine technology pose increasingly ...
  • Vogiazas, Sofoklis; Alexiou, Constantinos (Wiley, 2018-04-17)
    In this paper, by using econometric techniques we provide evidence that bitcoin exhibited the formation of speculative bubble in 2017. To conceptually rationalize the results, we delve into the extant theoretical approaches ...
  • Ostapkowicz, J; Brock, F; Widenhoeft, A C; Snoeck, C; Pouncett, J; Baksh-Comeau, Y; Schulting, R; Claeys, P; Mattielli, N; Richards, M; Boomert, A (Elsevier, 2017-11-06)
