  • Tazedakis, A. S. (Cranfield University, 1997)
    This work was primarily motivated by the industrial need for control of problems associated with the Gas Tungsten Arc Welding (GTAW) of small bore titanium and austenitic stainless steel tubes. These include: pore ...
  • Al-Hashem, Hasan Ahmed A. (1996-10)
    The present investigation aimed to develop a simple method of predicting the optimum performance of a medium size 4WD tractor performing a draught operation on a frictional soil in particular. The data obtained could provide ...
  • Thomas, A. W. (Cranfield University, 2000-10)
    Both dip and pulsed modes of metal transfer were investigated to establish which method produced the better bead geometry and penetration on 2024 and 2014 aluminium alloys using 2319 filler wire. The MIG electrode ...
  • Klein, V. (Cranfield University, 1973-10)
    All three steps in the identification, namely characterization parameter estimation and verification are considered and applied to the determination of aircraft parameters from flight data. The estimation procedure ...
  • Wu, Yunying (Cranfield UniversitySilsoe, 1996-10)
    Nearly 2 million hectares of farmland have been intercropped with rows of paulownia (Paulownia elongata) trees in the North Central Plain of China. Paulownia provides an important timber source and long term income as a ...
  • Lemon, M. (Cranfield University, 1991-11)
    The planning and management of change has tended to be directed towards the achievement of end states. Adaptive procedures are generally undertaken when it is felt that these end states will not be reached and intervention ...
  • Moody, A. P. (2001-11)
    Due to desirable environmental reasons, peroxides have replaced halogenated substances for disinfection purposes in the food and beverage industry. However, cost issues and the requirement to completely remove these ...
  • White, H. J. A. (Cranfield University, 1995-06)
    This thesis details a study into the photoetching of nickel alloys with ferric chloride and the reclamation of waste products. Reclamation occurs through the regeneration of the spent etchant and the recovery of the ...
  • Hunt, P. R. (1999-11)
    The study investigated the preparation treatment of rapeseed for the mechanical extraction of oil. Current mechanical oil extraction processes achieve an extraction efficiency of approximately 85% resulting in a residual ...
  • Jiang, Hong Wen (Cranfield University, 2004)
    This thesis investigates the piezoelectric thin film actuation of RF MEMS devices. lt is demonstrated that piezoelectric actuation using silicon structures with integrated PZT thin film is suitable for RF MEMS switches ...
  • Hill, D. M. (Cranfield UniversityCranfield University at Silsoe, 2006-01)
    Raised plasma homocysteine (Hcy) levels have been cited as a major risk factor for several vascular disorders. Yet hyperhomocysteinaemia is easily treated through dietary intervention and vitamin supplementation. Commercial ...
  • Caussiol, Laure (Cranfield UniversityCranfield University at Silsoe; Institute of Agritechnology, 2001-09)
    Quality is increasingly important for retailers, who tend to look for more definitive assessment criteria. Taste has become a major issue over past years for consumers, who are seeking higher quality produce. For banana ...
  • Llewellyn, C. A., (Cranfield University, Cranfield University at SilsoeCranfield University at Silsoe, 2006-11-01)
    The accelerated erosion of soil by water from Mediterranean hill-slopes under viticulture is a major problem. It is largely a result of the land management techniques employed and their influence on soil protection, structure ...
  • Smith, P. J. (Cranfield University, 1994-04)
    Type 11 hot corrosion has been identified as a major life limiting factor of gas turbine components in the topping cycle of coal fired combined cycle power plant. Impurities in the coal combustion gases provide the ...
  • Hayes, E. R (Cranfield University, 1988-07)
    This document describes the development of a computational model to study the movement and breakup _of droplets in turbulent two-component flows. The aim is to produce a suitable model which will be economical of computing ...
  • Santschi, Barbara (2006-03-06)
    Although the principles of relationship marketing are well understood, the role of pricing in building relationships between supply chain partners has not been researched. This study was designed to determine the role, ...
  • Le Clech , P. (Cranfield University, 2002-12)
    MBR process consists of a suspended growth biological reactor combined with a membrane unit. The widespread of this system for waste water treatment is contained by membrane fouling, which is strongly influenced by three ...
  • Scotti, A. (Cranfield University, 1991-09)
    The feasibility of fully automatic GMAW processes may rely on the development of sophisticated equipment to emulate the manual welding torch oscillation pattern or on the development of high level methods of control to ...
  • Reynolds , K. A. (Cranfield University, 1997-10)
    The work reported in this thesis is the culmination of a collaborative venture between Matra BAe Dynamics and the CIM Institute at Cranfield University. Initially the thesis examines the philosophy of the engineering ...
  • Gottberg, Annika (Cranfield UniversityCranfield University at Silsoe; Institute of Water and Environment, 2003-11)
    Due to potential environmental, resource and health problems associated with waste, waste minimisation is a prioritised waste management strategy in many countries. Producer responsibility policies promote waste minimisation ...
