    Previous studies on the erosion of electron beam physical vapour deposited thermal barrier coatings (EB PVD TBCs) has shown that aging the coatings at between 1100 and 1500 à °C before erosion increases the erosion rate. ...
  • Korposh, Serhiy O.; Takahara, Naoki; Ramsden, Jeremy J.; Lee, Seung-Woo; Kunitake, Toyoki (Association of Modern Scientific Investigation, 2006-09)
    A thin film of porphyrin deposited by the layer-by-layer method is employed as the active element for an optical sensor. The usefulness of this film technology and the resulting nanoscale matrix for the detection of ...
  • Javaid, N.; Stephenson, David J.; Vitanov, V. I. (2010-09-16)
    The aim of this work was to achieve the surface finish of 10nm on a 40mm diameter disc of chrome-molybdenum-vanadium alloyed steel (H13) by using precision grinding process with electrolytic in-process dressing. The ...
  • Sachse, Sophia (Cranfield University, 2012-10)
    During the past decade, polymer nanocomposites have emerged as a novel and rapidly developing class of materials and attracted considerable investment in research and development worldwide. Driven by the certainty that ...
  • Libor, Zsuzsanna; Zhang, Qi; Israel, C.; Mathur, N. D. (Maney Publishing, 2009-11)
    In recent years, coating processes with nanoparticles have been investigated for the development of nanostructured materials. In this work we report the core-shell structures of micro-composites of SiO2/Ni, SiO2/Fe3O4, and ...

    In this work, the technology of nano and micro-scale particle reinforcement concerning various polymeric fibre-reinforced systems including polyamides (PA), polyesters, polyurethanes, polypropylenes and high performanc ...
  • Jones, Paul M. (Cranfield University, 2008)
    An investigation into the processes taking place at the surface interface of ferroelectric Pb(Zr1-x,Tix)O3 immersed in metal salt solution under ultraviolet illumination is presented. The semiconducting and switchable ...
  • Bargir, Sameer M. (Cranfield University, 2007-09)
    Understanding the interaction between surfaces at the intermolecular level in ambient conditions is not only a fundamental science, but is of increasing value to water treatment systems. Here the uses of the atomic force ...
  • Jiang, A. Q.; Liu, X. B.; Zhang, Qi (American Institute of Physics, 2011-10-03)
    We transferred ferroelectric domain switching currents under pulses into polarization-voltage (P-V) hysteresis loops. With this transformation, it is possible to derive the remanent polarization and coercive voltage from ...

    The field of bio- and nano- polymer composite materials for advanced structural and medical applications is a fast emergent area and subject of scientific attention. Natural fibers have received great interest as fillers ...
  • Parsons, Simon A.; Jefferson, Bruce; Goslan, Emma Harriet; Jarvis, Peter; Fearing, David Andrew (Iwa Publishing, 2004-12-31)
    The characterisation and treatment of natural organic matter are becoming more important to the water utilities in the UK and around the world. This paper looks at the relationship between bulk and fractionated organic ...
  • Goslan, Emma Harriet (Cranfield UniversitySchool of Industrial and Manufacturing Science; School of Water Sciences, 2003-10)
    Natural organic matter (NOM) is described as an intricate mixture of organic compounds that occurs universally in ground and surface waters. After treatment for potable use, there is NOM remaining in the water that reacts ...
  • Sharp, Emma (Cranfield University, 2005-10)
    The removal of natural organic matter (NOM) is one of the main challenges facing water utilities in both the UK and the US. As a consequence of changes in land management and an increased carbon loss from solids, a greater ...
  • Heinz, Michael Pierre (Cranfield UniversitySchool of Industrial and Manufacturing Science, 2006-02)
    Production in global, intra-organisational networks is becoming more common. In this context, the allocation of production quantities to constrained manufacturing capacity is a challenging process. Due to a volatile ...
