  • Parsons, Simon A. (Cranfield University, 2012-05)
    In the game of cricket good ball-surface interactions are essential and require a hard, flat surface. To achieve this the clay loam soil comprising the pitch is compressed and compacted using a smooth wheeled roller, ...
  • Burgess, Paul J.; Morris, Joe (Elsevier Science B.V., Amsterdam., 2009-12-31)
    This paper explores how agricultural technology has interacted with recent land use in the UK and how it might do so in the next 50 years. From 1960 to 1985, farmers successfully used technology to increase the output ...
  • Gladding, T.; Thorn, Jörgen; Smith, Richard (Eurowaste, 2003-10)
    There are varying types of Materials Recycling Facilities (MRFs, also known as Materials Recovery Facilities, or Materials Recycling Factories) in operation in the UK and throughout Europe. A full outline of the various ...
  • Barth, Thomas H. (Cranfield University, 2009-04)
    This research investigated viscous injury from vertical impact loading to determine if it is critical to survivability of aircraft accidents. A unique database was built from autopsy reports and accident investigations ...
  • Morhart, Christopher D.; Douglas, Gerry C.; Dupraz, Christian; Graves, Anil R.; Nahm, Michael; Paris, Pierluigi; Sauter, Udo H.; Sheppard, Jonathan; Spiecker, Heinrich (EDP Sciences, 2014-07-01)
    Context: Current production from natural forests will not satisfy future world demand for timber and fuel wood, and new land management options are required. Aims: We explore an innovative production system that combines ...
  • Cardilli , Emanuele (Cranfield University, 2008-06)
    Cadmium electroplating is widely used in the aerospace industry for the corrosion protection of high strength steels. Cadmium is also used as compatible coating to reduce the galvanic corrosion generated in the assembly ...
  • Selkirk, Jane Yvonne (Cranfield University, 1997-06)
    The main tasks of this thesis were to evaluate a number of amperometric enzyme electrode chemistries for the selective and sensitive detection of L-lactate, and apply mass fabrication technologies to reproducibly manufacture ...
  • Rzeszucinski, P. J.; Sinha, J. K.; Edwards, Rodger; Starr, Andrew G.; Allen, B. (Blackwell Publishing Ltd, 2012-12-31)
    A ‘Go' or ‘No Go' assessment is a safety requirement for quick and robust estimation of the condition of gearboxes used in helicopters and other critical machines. A range of vibration-based condition indicators (CIs) has ...
  • Ganidi, Nafsika (Cranfield University, 2008-10)
    Anaerobic digestion foaming has been encountered in several sewage treatment plants in the UK. Foaming has raised major concerns for the water utilities due to significant impacts on process efficiency and operational ...
  • Ganidi, Nafsika; Tyrrel, Sean F.; Cartmell, Elise (Elsevier, 2009-12)
    Anaerobic digestion foaming has been encountered in several sewage treatment plants in the UK. Foaming has raised major concerns for the water companies due to significant impacts on process efficiency and operational ...
  • Fawehinmi, Folasade (Cranfield UniversitySchool of Water Sciences, 2006-08)
    Anaerobic treatment has historically been considered unsuitable for the treatment of domestic wastewaters. The work presented in this thesis focuses on the incorporation of membranes into the anaerobic bioreactor to ...
  • Cruddas, Peter (Cranfield University, 2014-05)
    Energy demand, greenhouse gas emissions, and operational costs are continuing to rise year on year in the wastewater treatment sector, with traditional treatment options unable to provide sustainable solutions to increasing ...
  • McAdam, Ewan J. (Institution of Chemical Engineers, 2010-11-30)
    Anaerobic technology cannot directly replace current wastewater treatment processes exclusively. The UASB reactor configuration removes slightly less organic carbon by comparison as the process relies on lamella separation ...
  • Zhu, Meiling; Worthington, Emma; Njuguna, James A. K. (IEEE Institute of Electrical and Electronics, 2009-07-31)
    A coupled piezoelectric-circuit finite element model (CPC-FEM) is proposed for the first time to study the power output of a vibration-based piezoelectric vibration-based piezoelectric energy harvesting devices (EHDs) ...
  • Coulon, Frederic (Institution of Chemical Engineers, 2009-12-31)
    Many hydrocarbon contaminated sites posing potential risks to human health harbour weathered, ‘mid-distillate' or heavy oils. Now, a bioremediation consortium (PROMISE), led by Cranfield University, has developed a novel ...
  • Mortara, L. (Cranfield University, 2005-11)
    The laboratory scale process developed by Navarro [Navarro, 2001 ] for the production of pyroelectric ceramics was used as a case study for the design of a high-level methodology for the scale-up of ceramic processes. A ...
  • Marasco, Andrea I. (Cranfield UniversitySchool of Industrial and Manufacturing Science, 2005-12)
    X-CorTM and K-CorTM are foam based lightweight structural cores reinforced with ZFiber ® rods oriented in a truss pattern. They can generate sandwich structures which possess strength- and stiffness-to-weight ratios such ...
  • Farewell, Timothy S.; Hallett, Stephen H.; Truckell, Ian G. (2013-01-22)
    Within the context of an observed increase in the numbers of burst pipes associated with colder winters in the Anglian water region, we have analysed temperature data for England and Wales from the period 1991-2012 to ...
  • Okparanma, R. N.; Coulon, Frederic; Mouazen, Abdul Mounem (Elsevier Science B.V., Amsterdam., 2014-01-31)
    In this study, we demonstrate that partial least-squares regression analysis with full cross-validation of spectral reflectance data estimates the amount of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons in petroleumcontaminated tropical ...
  • Barak, Jan (Cranfield University, 2014-05)
    Phosphorus (P) as a macronutrient contributes to eutrophication. In the UK, iron (Fe) and aluminium (Al) salt dosing is a well-established wastewater treatment strategy for its removal. Small works with a population ...
