  • Veronesi, Fabio (Cranfield University, 2012-07)
    Soil is extremely important for providing food, biomass and raw materials, water and nutrient storage; supporting biodiversity and providing foundations for man-made structures. However, its health is threatened by human ...
  • Mohd Saad, Norhairin (Cranfield University, 2013-03)
    This research project aims to develop a novel A3 thinking approach to support knowledge driven design that aids the generation of decision making within a Lean Product and Process Development (LeanPPD) environment. This ...
  • Morris, Tom (Cranfield University, 2011-07)
    Grinding and polishing of engineered components are critical aspects of the precision manufacturing of high performance, quality assured products. Elevated process temperatures, however, are a common and for the most ...
  • Barlow, James Vincent (Cranfield University, 2015-11)
    Urban pollutants have been identified as a significant source of environmental pollution, posing a risk to human health, the environment, and are toxic to flora and fauna. Highways are recognised as one of the key sources ...
  • Kazilas, Michalis C. (Cranfield UniversitySchool of Industrial and Manufacturing Science, 2003-09)
    The interpretation and modelling of the dielectric response of thermosetting materials during cure was the main focus of this study. The equivalence of complex permittivity and complex impedance in terms of information ...
  • Mountney, Sara (Cranfield University, 2009)
    This study investigates the identification, acquisition and sharing of innovative manufacturing knowledge for the preliminary design of complex mechanical components. Such components need to satisfy multiple, often conflicting ...
  • Carvalho, G. C. (Cranfield University, 1997-10)
    The aim of this work was to develop an integration concept for using off-line programming in robotic gas metal arc welding of thin sheet steel. Off line -welding parameter optimization and on-line monitoring and adaptive ...
  • Butans, Jevgenijs (Cranfield University, 2011-10)
    The demand for increased automation of industrial processes generates control problems that are dynamic, multi-objective and noisy at the same time. The primary hypothesis underlying this research is that dynamic ...
  • Danielli, Shaun Pau (Cranfield University, 2010-10)
    Small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) form a significant part of national and regional economic prosperity. They strengthen the capacity to generate employment and wealth for national and regional benefit. The ...
  • Kalamwa, Kulecho I. (Cranfield University, 2003-09)
    Population growth and development will increase the demands on water resources in Africa, and hence there is a need for agriculture to use water efficiently. Drip irrigation is widely promoted for water saving at the farm ...
  • Zhao, Gang (Cranfield University, 2014-09)
    The aims of this MSc research project are to investigate the application of aluminium for the main components of an ultra-precision spindle defined for use in R2R production systems and to produce a reel to reel rotary ...
  • Julka, Nirupam (Cranfield University, 2008-04)
    Manufacturing companies develop multiple production sites for various reasons from cheaper labour to access to local markets. Expansion of capacity in such a manufacturing network is a complex decision and requires ...
  • James, Christopher P. (Cranfield University, 2013-04)
    The removal of micropollutants (MPs) from secondary municipal wastewater by an advanced oxidation process (AOP) based on UV irradiation combined with hydrogen peroxide (UV/H2O2) has been assessed through pilot-scale experiments ...
  • da Costa Pépe, Nuno Vasco (Cranfield University, 2010-03)
    According to recent estimations, the construction of pipelines will continue to increase during the next thirty years, in particular as a result of oil and gas discoveries in remote locations. Significant advances in welding ...
  • Castelli, Marco (Cranfield University, 2012-10)
    In this thesis, the research and development of a novel rapid figuring procedure for large ultra-precise optics by Reactive Atom Plasma technology is reported. The hypothesis proved in this research is that a metre scale ...
  • 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, ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
