  • Potter, J. (Cranfield University, 2000-06)
    This thesis investigates the effectiveness (doing the right thing) and efficiency (doing the thing right) of computer-based discrete-event simulation for designing manufacturing systems. This investigation looked at the ...
  • Verheijen, Frank G. A. (Cranfield UniversityCranfield University at Silsoe, 2005)
    Soil organic carbon (SOC) is increasingly recognised as an important component in the global carbon cycle and as a potential C sequestration pool for mitigation of the enhanced greenhouse effect. Recent appeals have prompted ...
  • Skjonnemand, K. (Cranfield University, 2000-07)
    Chloride, bromide, pyridinium and quinolinium homologues of 4-(N- hexadecylpyridinium-4-ylmethylidene-amino)-2,6-dichlorophenolate have been investigated in solution, Langmuir and Langmuir-Blodgett films. Techniques ...
  • Motta, J. M. S. T. (Cranfield University, 1999-03)
    Robot calibration plays an increasingly important role in robot production as well as in robot operation and integration within computer integrated manufacturing or assembly systems. The production, implementation and ...
  • Saunders, Christopher (2002-04-02)
    The aim of the project was to undertake experimental and theoretical research, to enable a better understanding of the design of modem mouldboard ploughs. Using this knowledge to optimise the performance in terms of ...
  • Parra, Roberto (Cranfield UniversityCranfield University at Silsoe; Institute of BioScience and Technology, 2004-08)
    This study examines the effect of ecophysiology on growth of cells and production of enzymes and secondary metabolites produced by the fungi Aspergillus niger (lysozyme) and a Phoma sp. (squalestatin S1). The effect of ...
  • Mumford, Colin (Cranfield UniversityNational Soil Resources Institute, 2006-12)
    Non-uniform surface rating (going) on a racecourse increases the potential for risk of injury to competing horses and their riders. Variability in soil type and strength are the primary cause of inconsistent going. This ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
