  • Evans, G. (Department of Engineering Systems and Management, 2010-11-04)
    This document reviews the scour protection systems required around port structures where these are to be used for the berthing of vessels powered by water jet systems. The development of a scour protection system at Poole ...
  • Conway-Grim, Tanja (2019-02)
    Homicide is regarded as one of the gravest of all crimes, and those cases where the body is initially missing are more difficult to solve, partly due to a potential loss of forensic evidence. This research investigated the ...
  • Dennys, C (2013-09-25)
    This thesis focuses on what stability is, and what interventions have supported stability in four communities in Afghanistan and Nepal. It is the author’s view that this is the first in-depth village level assessment of ...
  • Moody, Leigh (Cranfield University; College of Defence Technology; Department of Aerospace, Power and Sensors, 2003-07)
    When considering advances in “smart” weapons it is clear that air-launched systems have adopted an integrated approach to meet rigorous requirements, whereas air-defence systems have not. The demands on sensors, ...
  • Wood, D. C. (2014-06-10)
    The shock response of a complex laminate has been investigated using a single stage gas gun, with manganin pressure gauges employed to investigate the shock profile. The complex laminate investigated was known by the ...
  • Fitzmaurice, B. (Cranfield University, 2018)
    The shock response of microorganisms is of particular interest to many different areas of research including, but not limited to: asteroid and meteoritic impacts and origins of life; food sterilisation; and deep-sea ...
  • Imran, S A (2014-06-10)
    This thesis investigates robust and fast methods for single and cooperative 2D/3D image mosaicing to enhance field of view of images by joining them together. Image mosaicing is underlined by the process of image ...
  • Bartolome, D R (2013-10-08)
    This thesis deals with the challenge of autonomous navigation of the ExoMars rover. The absence of global positioning systems (GPS) in space, added to the limitations of wheel odometry makes autonomous navigation based ...
  • Felix Moreno, R (2016-10-05)
    In the present day fossil fuel availability, cost, security and the pollutant emissions resulting from its use have driven industry into looking for alternative ways of powering vehicles. The aim of this research is to ...
  • Gulhan, O. (2017-08-04)
    The identification of victims involved in mass fatality incidents, as well as the identification of unknown individuals in criminal cases has become an increasingly important issue nowadays. Sex assessment represents a key ...
  • David, Anne (2020-02)
    This research aims to evaluate whether artefacts other than the content of user com munication on social media can be used to attribute actions or relationships to a user. Social Media has enhanced the way users communicate ...
  • Kirke, C. M. St G. (Cranfield UniversityDepartment of Defence Management & Security Analysis (DDMSA), 2006-05-04)
    An original model is presented for describing, analysing, and predicting soldiers’ behaviour in current regular combat arms units in the British Army. It was derived, using social anthropological techniques, during ...
  • Wilkins, P. C. (Cranfield UniversityDepartment of Aerospace, Power and Sensors, 2008-08-13)
    Flapping-wing micro air vehicles, based on insect-like apping, could potentially ll a niche in the current market by o ering the ability to gather information from within buildings. The aerodynamics of insect-like ...
  • Horsfall, Ian (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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • Wagstaff, D C. (Department of Environmental and Ordnance Systems, 2010-11-03)
    A study into the degradation of crystalline Hydrazinium Nitroformate (HNF) in isolation has been carried out alongside studies into HNF / polyNIMMO propellant degradation. The contribution of gas / solid autocatalysis ...
  • Chermak, Lounis (2015-07-17)
    This thesis investigates techniques and designs an autonomous visual stereo based navigation sensor to improve stereo visual odometry for purpose of navigation in unknown environments. In particular, autonomous navigation ...
  • Etok , S. E. (Faculty of Medicine and Biosciences, 2009-11-17)
    Hydroxyapatite (HAP) coatings are used in orthopaedic surgery for bone regeneration. Current methods of phase quantification of HAP coatings suffer from drawbacks. A novel methodology of quantitative phase analysis of ...
  • Roncallo, S. (Department of Applied Science, Security and Resilience, 2009-01-23)
    The investigation of ternary compounds for the fabrication of thin film solar cells is well documented but the production of thin films by electrostatic spray deposition (ESD) is still limited. This thesis represents the ...
