  • Durazo-Cardenas, Isidro Sergio; Shore, Paul; Luo, X.; Jacklin, T.; Impey, S. A.; Cox, A. (Elsevier Science B.V., Amsterdam., 2006-07-24)
    Nanometrically smooth infrared silicon optics can be manufactured by the diamond turning process. Due to its relatively low density, silicon is an ideal optical material for weight sensitive infrared (IR) applications. ...
  • Leighton, Glenn J. T.; Huang, Zhaorong (Institute of Physics, 2010-06-30)
    One of the major difficulties in measuring the piezoelectric coefficient d(33,f) for thin films is the elimination of the contribution from substrate bending. We show by theoretical analysis and experimental measurements ...
  • Hall, D. H.; Gronow, Jan R.; Smith, Richard; Blakey, N. (The Waste Conference Ltd, 2004-09)
    This paper presents the results of a research contract jointly funded by the Environment Agency and ESART examining the residues of likely post-Landfill Directive waste streams that will need to go to landfill and the ...
  • Albarbar, A.; Gu, F.; Ball, A. D.; Starr, Andrew G. (Elsevier Science B.V., Amsterdam., 2010-12-31)
    Diesel engines injection process is essential for optimum operation to maintain the design power and torque requirements and to satisfy stricter emissions legislations. In general this process is highly dependent upon ...
  • Cliquet, A.; Backes, C.; Harris, Jim A.; Howsam, Peter (Igitur, Utrecht Publishing and Archiving Services, 2009-07-01)
    Climate change will cause further loss of biodiversity. As negative effects are already taking place, adaptive measures are required to protect biodiversity from the effects of climate change. The EU policy on climate ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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; 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • Idowu, O. J.; Rickson, R. J.; Godwin, R. J. (John Wiley & Sons, Ltd, 2002-08-30)
    The decay of roughness is an important factor governing surface processes such as infiltration and soil erosion. Thus the decay of surface roughness under different surface conditions was investigated and related to ...
  • Williams, Adrian G.; Pearn, Kerry R.; Sandars, Daniel L.; Audsley, Eric; Parsons, David J.; Chatterton, Julia C. (2010-11-30)
    Key points This study has delivered an invaluable baseline estimate of energy use and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions on commercial farms in England. Energy use and GHG emissions associated with particular commodities ...
  • Dorey, Robert A.; Whatmore, Roger W. (Taylor & Francis, 2002-01-01)
    Thick PZT films (1 - 20 m) have been prepared using a composite sol gel technique whereby PZT powder and a PZT producing sol are formed into a slurry and spin coated onto silicon wafers. The maximum relative permittivity ...
  • Lawson, Craig P.; Longhurst, Philip J.; Ivey, Paul C. (Elsevier Science B.V., Amsterdam., 2006-02-01)
    The work reported in this paper investigates Research and Development (R&D) project selection models, focusing on the application of a new hybrid project selection model in a UK based engineering Small to Medium-sized ...
