  • Horsfall, Ian; Cundy, S. J. (1992-01-07)
    This paper describes initial work on a novel process for the production of titanium aluminide matrix composites reinforced with short alumina fibers. The processing route involves an adaption of existing metal matrix ...
  • Horsfall, Ian; Pollitt, S. M.; Belk, J. A.; Angood, C. (1995-12-31)
    This paper describes the development of a method for the investigation and comparison of materials for use in stab resistant body armour. A number of polymer composite panels of different thicknesses and construction have ...
  • Hazell, P. J.; Iremonger, M. J. (American Institute of Physics, 1997-12-31)
    A physically based crack softening damage model has been developed and used in a non-linear transient dynamic computer code (AUTODYN-2D). It is assumed that there is a finite number of orientated pre-existing flaws within ...
  • Hazell, P. J.; Fellows, N. A.; Hetherington, J. G. (Elsevier Science B.V., Amsterdam., 1998-12-31)
    A thin, ceramic-faced armour, separated from a thick metal block, has been subjected to high-velocity impact by a 6.35 mm diameter steel sphere. Experimental work was carried out which compared firings into ceramic-fac ...
  • Morgan, Neil (Cranfield University; College of Defence Technology; Department of Materials and Medical Sciences, 1999-10)
    Recent research and development in the area of shape memory alloys (SMA) continues to yield novel and unique results. Of the alloys that display the effect NiTi alloys have found the most commercial interest resulting in ...
  • Moore, David M.; Antill, Peter D. (Taylor & Francis, 1999-10-01)
    With logistics having become more important as the 20th century has progressed, and particularly since the end of the Cold War, the need for more efficient and effective logistics is becoming paramount, as it is seen as ...
  • Moore, David M.; Antill, Peter D. (Taylor & Francis, 2000-02-01)
    Since the announcement of Smart Procurement, much has been written on the potential benefits that IPTs will hopefully bring. It is supposed that they will improve the interface with industry, create a better understanding ...
  • Horsfall, I (Cranfield University, 2000-03)
    There is now a widely accepted need for stab resistant body armour for the police in the UK. However, very little research has been done on knife resistant systems and the penetration mechanics of sharp projectiles are ...
  • Moore, David M.; Antill, Peter D. (Common Services Establishment, 2000-09-01)
    This paper will focus on the logistics approach as used by the British Armed Forces during the Cold War, what it is today, and what future operations may involve. It will also look at certain aspects of commercial logistics ...
  • Moore, David M.; Antill, Peter D. (Taylor & Francis, 2000-10-01)
    The paper examines how the British Army has conducted logistic support during the last few decades and the pressures on it to change that have come about since the end of the Cold War. It also looks at the nature of ...
  • Moore, David M.; Antill, Peter D.; MacLennan, W. R. (2000-10-01)
    Maritime power has traditionally been a central part of the UK’s defence planning and is well suited to supporting a wide range of military operations. The littoral area has always created problems for naval planners as ...
  • Horsfall, I; Austin, S J; Bishop, W (Elsevier Science B.V., Amsterdam., 2000-12-31)
    This paper describes the structural response of a current ceramic-faced composite armour system and a proposed structural armour system for aircraft use. The proposed structural ballistic armour system is shown to be capable ...
  • Hazell, P. J.; Iremonger, M. J. (John Wiley & Sons, Ltd, 2000-12-31)
    A physically based crack softening approach to modelling the failure of brittle materials that have been subjected to dynamic loading is presented and applied to a two-dimensional non-linear transient dynamic hydrocode. ...
  • Moore, David M.; Allen, David; Antill, Peter D. (2000-12-31)
    This article highlights the specific logistics problems which special operations forces have, given their highly specialist nature and the factors that act upon them such as external (political, economic and national ...
  • Moore, David M.; Neal, Derrick J.; Antill, Peter D. (2001-02-01)
    This paper presents an overview of the rapidly changing nature of the European defence and aerospace industry. In particular the paper identifies a number of key issues associated with the dynamic of supply chain management ...
  • Horsfall, Ian (2001-05-07)
    This paper descries an experimental evaluation of lithium-zinc-silicate glass ceramics when used as the strike face of an armour system. It is shown that against soft cored 7.62mm rounds (lead or mild steel cores) glass ...
  • Moore, David M.; Antill, Peter D. (2001-09-30)
    This paper looks at a particular aspect of the Smart Procurement Initiative, which was announced in the Strategic Defence Review, that of Integrated Project Teams. These teams aim to bring together all the relevent ...
  • Tadjouddine, Mohamed; Forth, Shaun A.; Pryce, John D.; Reid, John K. (Springer-Verlag, 2002)
    In this paper, we present first results from EliAD, a new automatic differentiation tool. EliAD uses the Elimination approach for Automatic Differentation first advocated by Griewank and Reese (Automatic Differentiation ...
  • Tadjouddine, M; Forth, S; Pryce, J (2002-01-01)
    We consider the problem of linearising the short (approximately 100 lines of) code that defines the numerical fluxes of mass, energy and momentum across a-cell face in a finite volume compressible flow calculation. Typical ...
