  • Hughes, Edmund John (1996-05-23)
    Nitrate polluted water from agricultural drainage systems is currently treated by the water industry for mains supply. Moves towards a polluter pays policy resulting from European Union legislation and consumer pressure ...
  • Kirisci, Vahit (Cranfield University, 1994-03)
    A literature review was conducted on several models which have been developed, based on Terzaghi's passive earth pressure theory, to describe the forces acting upon tillage implements during tillage operations. These models ...
  • Rigou, P (Cranfield University, 2003-05)
    The contamination of soils, particularly by organic pollutants at industrial sites, has required the development of accurate methods of analysis to determine the nature and concentration of the pollutants, thereby allowing ...
  • Calvi, Adriano (Cranfield University, 1998-10)
    Model updating is an important issue in engineering. In fact a well-correlated model provides for accurate evaluation of the structure loads and responses. The main objectives of the study were to exploit available ...
  • Steer, A. J. (Cranfield University, 2001-11)
    Concorde's unique low-speed handling qualities are acceptable when flown in a rigidly procedural manner by experienced pilots. However, to be commercially viable and environmentally acceptable more numerous second ...
  • Mealing, B. E. (Cranfield University, 1988-03)
    The original objective of this work, to improve the efficiency of a forward curved centrifugal fan, was redirected to the urgent solution of a serious impeller life problem arising under certain service conditions. Using ...
  • Resnick, Avi (Cranfield University, 1982-12)
    The subject of this work is the flow inside an axial pump impeller, which is studied both numerically and experimentally. The aim of the work is to provide a numerical method to predict the three-dimensional flow field ...
  • Field, Edmund (Cranfield University, 1995-06)
    The introduction of fly-by-wire electronic flight control systems into transport aircraft has given the flying qualities engineer the opportunity to optimise the flying qualities of these aircraft for their specific ...
  • Yeung, Ruth Mo Wah (Cranfield UniversityCranfield University at Silsoe, 2002-07)
    Recent high profile food safety incidents in the United Kingdom have shaken consumer confidence in food products. Consumer perception of risk is seen to be very relevant to food safety issues. The impact of this perceived ...
  • Yee, Wallace Man Shek (Cranfield UniversityCranfield University at Silsoe, 2002-10)
    Food safety is an important issue facing consumers, the food industry and the government. Since consumers cannot themselves easily assess food safety risks, their perception of food safety is in part a matter of trust ...
  • Rush, C. (Cranfield University, 2002-10)
    This thesis is concerned with understanding the role and utilisation of cost engineering knowledge for generating cost estimates with respect to long life cycle, complex hardware products. lt examines whether there is a ...
  • Hooper, J. (Cranfield University, 2003-01)
    Fretting fatigue is a major concern in the design of engineering components that will be subjected to clamping pressures whilst operating in a vibrational environment. The type of loading environment generated in these ...
  • Massingham, M (Cranfield University, 2005-10)
    Problem Little research has taken place to investigate fretting fatigue under conditions of variable amplitude loading (VAL) and no research using a complex loading spectra representative of reality. The effect of cycles ...
  • Preston, Nicola (Cranfield University, 2001-02)
    This report, sponsored by the Fresh Produce Consortium (FPC), describes the supply chain for fresh fruits and vegetables consumed as part of school meals. FPC had previously identified schools serving children in the ...
  • Weatherhead, E. K. (Cranfield University, 2001-02)
    The aim of this thesis is to predict the future demand for water for irrigation of outdoor agricultural crops in England, and to assess the likely on-farm responses to potential water shortages and related legislative ...
  • Jack , R. L. (Cranfield University, 1989-02-23)
    Self-poisoning - the deliberate, non-fatal ingestion of medicinal agents in excess of the recommended dose - is characterised wherever it occurs in Western society by a predominance of women - usually in the order of ...
  • Liu, C-K (Cranfield University, 1999-10)
    The objective of this thesis is to develop generic assembly relations to support variant management to aid the product development for products as families. The advent of the buyers' market has encouraged manufacturers ...
  • Kirkham, Jennifer. Ann. (Cranfield University, 1989-08)
    Brewing yeast strains are usually aneuploid or polyploid with no true mating type. Thus many of the techniques which can be used to genetically modify laboratory yeast strains cannot be applied to them. This study was ...
  • Peccol, Elisabetta (1994-02)
    A GIS database for a study area (96 Km^) within the county of Bedfordshire (southern England) was established to provide statistical and mapped information on the distribution, extent and change through time of land-cover ...
  • Brooks, Steven (Cranfield University, 1987-10)
    The evaluation, analysis and development of an oxygen-insensitive amperometric glucose biosensor and its application in microbial batch culture are described. The biosensor consisted of a graphite foil electrode modified ...
