  • Flaherty, Sarah (Cranfield University, 2008)
    In the UK, accidents associated with maritime, aviation and rail transport are conducted by the Inspectors of Accidents at the Marine, Air and Rail Accident Investigation Branches. A review of current academic literature ...
  • Alabdulkarim, Abdullah A. (Cranfield University, 2013-10)
    The move towards integrating products and services has increased significantly. As a result, some business models, such as Product Service Systems (PSS) have been developed. PSS emphasises the sale of use of the product ...
  • Verrier, David (Cranfield UniversitySchool of Engineering, College of Aeronautics, 2001-04)
    This work analyses the current state of the art in the Spacecraft Operations domain. It reviews the structure and practices within the European space industry and shows how the industry is generally shaped by national or ...
  • Naylor, Edward (Cranfield University, 2008-02)
    Previous research on blade boundary layers in turbomachinery have been recognised to crucially influence the stability and performance of the gas turbine components. The interactions between rotating and stationary blade ...
  • Richardson, David (Cranfield University, 2009-10)
    One method aircraft engine manufactures use to minimize engine cost and weight is to reduce the number of parts. A significant reduction includes reducing the turbine blade count or combining two moderately loaded turbines ...
  • Masiyano, Dackson (Cranfield University, 2009-01)
    Tunable diode laser absorption spectroscopy (TDLAS) is an optical gas sensing technique in which the emission frequency of a laser diode is tuned over a gas absorption line of interest. A fraction of the radiation is ...
  • Hussain, Ambreen (Cranfield University, 2013-04)
    The primary aim of this research project was to investigate techniques to replace the complicated process of testing embedded systems in automotive domain. The multi-component domain was composed of different hardware to ...
  • Al-Balushi, K. R. N. (Cranfield University, 1995-09)
    The aim of this research is to investigate the feasibility of using stress waves for condition monitoring of gears. The project involved setting up an experimental rig, carrying out experimental work, acquiring stress ...
  • Brayshaw, Damien (Cranfield University, 2004-08)
    The aim of this research is to use numerical optimisation to investigate the on-limit behaviour of an open wheel downforce type race car using the best compromise of modelling accuracy and computational effort. The ...
  • Provost, M. J. (Cranfield University, 1994-12)
    This thesis discusses several methods that can be used to analyse gas turbines, based on an optimal estimation algorithm called the Kalman Filter. These techniques overcome the difficulties of more 'traditional' analysis ...
  • Davenport, John (Cranfield University, 2014-01)
    The aim of this project was to assess the feasibility of using UV spectroscopy for a simple detection system for formaldehyde gas in the indoor environment. Formaldehyde gas is hazardous to human health causing irritation ...
  • Toossi, Amir (Cranfield University, 2011-12)
    The shift in mindset of decision makers, from maintenance being a “necessary evil” and “cost centre” to a “profit contributor” in manufacturing companies has driven outsourced maintenance suppliers to employ value-centric ...
  • Kang, Chang (Cranfield University, 1996)
    The study of anti-stall techniques for fans and compressors has never been more significant, since the potential applications were recognised in gas turbines, tunnel ventilation (jet fans) and industrial process ...
  • Aleid, Louay (Cranfield University, 1997-04)
    The different aspects of overall performance of three variable cycle engines (VCE) candidates for future supersonic civil transport are analysed in this work. These aspects concern the design and off-design points ...
  • Sherar, P. A. (Cranfield UniversitySchool of Mechanical Engineering; Applied Mathematics and Computing Group, 2004)
    The use of energy methods and variational principles is widespread in many fields of engineering of which structural mechanics and curve and surface design are two prominent examples. In principle many different types of ...
  • Tsoutsanis, Panagiotis (Cranfield University, 2009-08)
    Understanding the motion of fluids is crucial for the development and analysis of new designs and processes in science and engineering. Unstructured meshes are used in this context since they allow the analysis of the ...
  • Arzina, Dina (Cranfield University, 2011)
    There has been a significant increase in air traffic volume, particularly over the past twenty years. In order to cope with this increase in demand, it has been necessary to increase the efficiency of aircraft engines. ...
  • Gabri, B. S. (Cranfield University, 1978-03)
    The work reported here is directed towards the problem of measuring and modeling non-linear damping in steel space frame civil engineering structures. In order to gain a better understanding of the damping mechanism ...
  • Wang, Yang (Cranfield University, 2011-12)
    The aim of the project presented in this thesis is to demonstrate a modelling method for predicting the variability in the ultimate load of stiffened panel under axial compression due to manufacturing variability. Bulking ...
  • Elliott, Alexander William (Cranfield University, 2012)
    The majority of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) available today depend on Global Position Satellites (GPS) and inertial measurement units (IMU) for state estimation used in navigation and control. However with the increase ...
