  • Liratzis, Theocharis (Cranfield University, 2007-04)
    Energy consumption has grown by 2% per year worldwide over the past ten years. In 2005 worldwide 900,000 barrels of oil and 7.6 billion cubic metre of natural gas were produced daily. The exploitation of fields to meet ...
  • Parker, Alison; Cruddas, Peter; Rowe, Nick; Carter, Richard; Webster, James (Thomas Telford, 2012-12-31)
    Rainwater harvesting from hard roofing can provide safe water to meet the basic domestic needs of several hundred million people in low-income countries. However, rainwater harvesting has a higher household cost than other ...
  • Zhu, Jinchun; Abhyankar, Hrushikesh; Nassiopoulos, Elias; Njuguna, James A. K. (2012-12-31)
    Innovation is often driven by changes in government policies regulating the industries, especially true in case of the automotive. Except weight savings, the strict EU regulation of 95% recyclable material-made vehicles ...
  • Knox, Jerry W.; Kay, Melvyn G. (Ip Publishing, 2010-12-01)
    plethora of articles, books, and academic papers. Not least are the detailed and extensive publications of the Inter-Governmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) which set out in their latest assessment (AR4), the scientific, ...
  • Besancon, Axelle (Cranfield University, 2010-06)
    Managed aquifer recharge (MAR) consists of artificially replenishing groundwater to facilitate reuse and/or the associated environmental benefits. Meanwhile, soil aquifer treatment (SAT) is a process of geo-purificatio ...
  • Laine, Anu Talvikki (Cranfield UniversitySchool of Applied Sciences, 2001-02)
    The potential of four pilot-scale wastewater treatment processes for in-building greywater recycling has been assessed. The evaluation of three membrane bioreactors (MBRs) and a biological aerated filter (BAF) was principally ...
  • Shah, Satya Ramesh; Roy, Rajkumar; Tiwari, Ashutosh (2006-01-01)
    Customer service advisors can play different roles and have different level of autonomy, but at the end they are humans with heart and voice. While product purchases, lifestyle information and billing data provide important ...
  • Lefever , David B. (Cranfield University, 1992-11)
    This thesis sets out to explore limitations of the role undertaken by "technology transfer" agencies in their contribution to successful innovation in UK industry. In particular it identifies the limitations arising from ...
  • Danert, Kerstin (Cranfield University, 2003-03-17)
    Third World development theory and practice are changing so rapidly that it is important to critically examine the fashions of today before they become history. This thesis considers the development, transfer, early ...
  • Seaton, Roger A. F. (Cranfield University, 1997-07)
    The aim of this thesis is to develop, present and then demonstrate conceptual structures that link together an apparently heterogeneous range of research activity about technology in situations which are the subject of ...
  • Bell, Andrew John (Cranfield University, 2009-02)
    This research considers the temperatures generated in the workpiece during profile and cylindrical traverse grinding in the High Efficiency Deep Grinding (HEDG) regime. The HEDG regime takes large depths of cut at high ...
  • Wagland, Stuart Thomas; Tyrrel, Sean F.; Godley, A. R.; Smith, Richard (Elsevier Science B.V., Amsterdam., 2009-01-01)
    A wide range of waste characterization methods are available, each developed for a specific purpose such as determining compost stability, or for landfill acceptance criteria. Here test methods have been evaluated for ...
  • Heath, Tom; Parker, Alison; Weatherhead, E. K. (International Institute for Environment and Development, 2012-10-01)
    Climate change is expected to affect the poor in low- and middle-income countries most, particularly in the next few decades, through increased flooding and droughts. A very large number of these poor live in informal urban ...
  • Mahinovs, Aigars; Tiwari, Ashutosh; Roy, Rajkumar (series editor); Baxter, David (series editor) (2007-04-01)
    With the explosion of information fuelled by the growth of the World Wide Web it is no longer feasible for a human observer to understand all the data coming in or even classify it into categories. With this growth of ...
  • Abo Al-kheer, A.; Eid, M.; Aoues, Y.; El-Hami, A.; Kharmanda, M. G.; Mouazen, Abdul Mounem (Elsevier Science B.V., Amsterdam., 2011-08-01)
    This paper presents a new theoretical model to describe the spatial variability in tillage forces for the purpose of fatigue analysis of tillage machines. The proposed model took into account both the variability in ...
  • Khan, Muhammad Ali; Starr, Andrew G. (2007-12-31)
    For machine components like gears and bearings, working life calculation is one of the complex issues to deal with. This is because the mechanics of their operation is dependent on many parameters, like loading, friction ...
  • Huang, Zhaorong (American Institute of Physics, 2006-12-01)
    Multilayer composites of piezoelectric and magnetostrictive materials can be designed to exhibit the magnetoelectric (ME) effect. This ME effect can be realised as an electric polarisation induced by a magnetic field (called ...
  • Bayer, Johannes Robert (Cranfield University, 2010-06)
    Fire Service commanders work in a very dynamic environment. This research investigated the process they use to make sense and thereby develop understanding of situations during the response to a large-scale emergency. In ...
  • Massam, Mark (Cranfield University, 2008)
    High Efficiency Deep Grinding (HEDG) combines high depths of cut, high grinding wheel speeds with high work piece feed rates to deliver a very high stock removal process that can produce components free of surface damage. ...
  • Georgiou, Charalambos Andrew (Cranfield University, 2011-05)
    Multi Axis Robots have traditionally been used in industry for pick and place, de-burring, and welding operations. Increasing technological advances have broadened their application and today robots are increasingly being ...
