  • Knowles, R. D.; Saddington, A. J.; Knowles, Kevin (Professional Engineering Publishing, 2013-12-31)
    Velocity measurements were made in the near wake of the front wheel of a Formula One car using a laser Doppler anemometer. Tests were carried out on a 50% scale in a closed-return three-quarter open-jet wind tunnel. Three ...
  • Ehirim, Obinna; Knowles, Kevin; Saddington, A. J.; Finnis, Mark V.; Lawson, Nicholas J. (Springer Verlag, 2019-02-08)
    A ground-effect diffuser is an upwardly-inclined section of an automobile’s underbody which increases aerodynamic performance by generating downforce. To understand the diffuser flow physics (force behaviour, surface and ...
  • Summers, Matthew P.; Barker, Stephen G. (IEEE, 2017-04)
    The need to consider how systems can be made resilient to failure modes has gained increasing traction in the fields of systems thinking and systems design, and is now more widely studied, with authors identifying the ...
  • Wood, D.; Appleby-Thomas, Gareth J.; Fitzmaurice, B.; Franceskides, C.; Shanker, T.; Zioupos, Peter; Samra, A. (European Society of Biomechanics, 2016-07-10)
    When investigating a biological system during shock loading, it is best practice to isolate different components to fully comprehend each individual part [1,2] before building up the system as a whole. Due to the high ...
  • Hughes, Evan J.; White, Brian A. (Elsevier, 2004-06-18)
    This paper details the application of a Cooperative Coevolution On-Line Evolutionary Algorithm (CCOLEA) to the guidance of a swarm of multiple missiles, against multiple targets. The CCOLEA trades the spatial distribution ...
  • Fisher, Richard; Willis, Richard (Taylor & Francis, 2019-08-12)
    The Great War saw machine gunnery develop from a direct fire weapon through to mass indirect fire barrages. There is an account from High Wood in August 1916 that represents the pinnacle of these developments – firing one ...
  • Hazell, P. J.; Roberson, C. J. (2011-05-11)
    In this paper, the 7.62 mm x 51 mm FFV round consisting of a tungsten carbide core (1550 HV) and copper gilding jacket was fired at silicon nitride, titanium diboride, tungsten carbide and silicon carbide ceramics. Of ...
  • Evans, Roly; Nelson, Liz; Temple, Tracey (Elsevier, 2024-02-02)
    Since Mine Action's inception at the end of the 1980s, operators have collected limited data on the Victim Operated Explosive Devices (VOEDs) they clear. This includes not only data on the explosive ordnance itself but ...
  • Matthews, Ron; Ansari, Irfan; Watters, Bryan (Capco Institute, 2021-05-01)
    The purpose of this paper is to explore the interconnectivity between defence, security, and business, particularly when viewed through the prism of operational resilience. The standard stereotype depicts the military ...
  • Kallepalli, Akhil; McCall, Blake; James, David B.; Junaid, Sarah; Halls, James; Richardson, Mark A. (Wiley-VCH Verlag, 2019-10-08)
    Human skin equivalents (HSEs) are three‐dimensional living models of human skin that are prepared in vitro by seeding cells onto an appropriate scaffold. They recreate the structure and biological behaviour of real skin, ...
  • Fang, Xiao; Sharma, Mishminder; Stennett, Christopher; Gill, Philip P. (Elsevier, 2017-05-18)
    The laser ignition of explosives is safer and more environmentally beneficial than electric ignition systems, but optical sensitisers must be present to facilitate heating by optical absorption. We investigated, for the ...
  • Fang, Xiao; Walton, Alexander J. (Elsevier, 2022-10-21)
    An experimental investigation into optical sensitisation for laser ignition of an insensitive explosive 1,1-Diamino-2,2-dinitroethene (FOX-7) has been carried out, by using a near-infrared diode laser at a wavelength of ...
  • Griffin, Benjamin; Balleri, Alessio; Baker, Chris; Jahangir, Mohammed (IEEE, 2020-12-04)
    Staring radars use a transmitting static wide-beam antenna and a directive digital array to form multiple simultaneous beams on receive. Because beams are static, the radar can employ long integration times that facilitate ...
  • Hes, R. A. G.; Painter, Jonathan; Appleby-Thomas, Gareth J. (Elsevier, 2023-03-24)
    An extensive literature review, combined with practical experience of forensic testing, has identified several concerns regarding existing studies into skin simulants. These can be summarized as arising due to human skin ...
  • Temple, Tracey J.; Goodwin, Catherine; Ladyman, Melissa K.; Mai, Nathalie; Coulon, Frederic (Wiley, 2018-10-16)
    An Accelerated Solvent Extraction (ASE) method was developed and optimised to extract hexahydro‐1,3,5‐trinitro‐1,3,5‐triazine (RDX) from a polyurethane matrix. The ASE method development was benchmarked against Soxhlet ...
  • Horsfall, Ian; Watson, Celia H.; Champion, Stephen M. (American Society Mechanical Engineers, 2013-05-01)
    Many police body armor systems are dual purpose, offering both ballistic and knife resistanceby combining a flexible ballistic textile pack with a stiffer knife resistant layer.The two types of protection differ in materials ...
  • Djamaa, Badis; Richardson, Mark A. (2015-01-16)
    The Trickle Algorithm has enjoyed much popularity and widespread as a basic network primitive ensuring low-cost data consistency in lossy networks. Trickle was shaped by the so called short-listen problem hence imposing a ...
  • Ng, Tat Ming; Weller, Mark T; Kissling, Gabriela P; Peter, Laurence M; Dale, Philip; Babbe, Finn; De Wild, Jessica; Wenger, Bernard; Snaith, Henry; Lane, David W. (Royal Society of Chemistry, 2017-02)
    Single crystals of Cu2ZnSnS4 (CZTS) have been grown by iodine vapor transport with and without addition of NaI. Crystals with tin-rich copper-poor and with zinc-rich copper-poor stoichiometries were obtained. The crystals ...
  • Kirke, C. M. St G. (2009-11-19)
    In common with all professional armies, the British Army is a disciplined force. There is a sharply stratified rank structure and formal rules abound. There is a prima facie case therefore that when formal rules are broken ...
