  • Rizkalla, A. A. (Cranfield University, 1974-09-01)
    This thesis reports the results of a detailed programme of research on airblast atomization carried out using a specially designed atomizer in which the liquid is first spread into a thin sheet and then exposed on both ...
  • Whidborne, James F. (IEEE, 1992-05-01)
    A performance index for control systems has been defined as the supremum of the absolute error that occurs over all time and all inputs. The input to the system is known only to the extent that it belongs to a known function ...
  • Whidborne, James F. (Elsevier, 1993-09-01)
    For the effective operation of a magnetically levitated (maglev) vehicle using electro-magnetic suspension, it is necessary that the airgap between the guideway and the levitating magnets is maintained. Such systems, where ...
  • Allcock, Bryan W. (Cranfield University, 1993-12)
    A novel gel-filled electrochemical hydrogen probe was developed and used to measure hydrogen concentrations in carbon-manganese steels. The results were compared with those from an electrochemical permeation technique ...
  • Smith, P A (1994)
    The steam lines in the majority of power stations operating in the UK were fabricated from kCrkMokV steam pipe material joined using 2CrMo weld metal. Throughout the life of these systems, which operate typically at 565°C ...
  • Whidborne, James F.; Postlethwaite, I.; Gu, Da-Wei (IEEE, 1994-12-01)
    A new approach to robust controller design is proposed. By using plant-weighting functions as the design parameters, the approach combines the method of inequalities with robust stabilization of normalized coprime factor ...
  • Trille, Christophe (Cranfield University, 1996-10)
    Subsea pipelines, as the main transportation means for oil and gas produced offshore, are a key element of the production system. Cathodic protection systems (CPS) are used in combination with surface coatings to protect ...
  • Watanabe, Yukio (1997-09)
    This thesis considers the neural network learning control of a variable-geometry automotive active suspension system which combines most of the benefits of active suspension systems with low energy consumption. Firstly, ...
  • Balboa, Itziar; Tatam, Ralph P. (SPIE - International Society for Optics and Photonics, 1998-07-20)
    A low coherence speckle interferometer implemented using single mode optical fibre and a multimode laser diode as a pseudo-low coherence source is described. The design of the interferometer is presented and demonstrated ...
  • Romero, Ignacio (2001-01)
    This thesis presents a dynamic analysis and a control system for a flexible space manipulator, the Deployable Robotic Manipulator or DRM, which has a deployable/retractable link. The link extends (or retracts) from the ...
  • Ivey, P. C.; Grant, K. R.; Lawson, Craig (University of Cambridge, 2002)
    High Cycle Fatigue (HCF) has been established as the major common failure mode in the US Air Force large fleet of aero-engines. Corrective measures for this failure mode in themselves deliver additional technical, managerial ...
  • af Wåhlberg, Anders (2002-10-23)
    A new area of traffic education, training in fuel efficient driving, is reviewed. This training is often said to reduce fuel consumption, accidents, emissions, and wear and tear on vehicles. These claims, made mainly by ...
  • Nobes, David S.; Ford, Helen D.; Tatam, Ralph P. (SPIE - International Society for Optics and Photonics, 2003-08-03)
    The development of a planar Doppler velocimetry is described. The technique is capable of measuring the three, instantaneous components of velocity in two dimensions using a single pair of signal and reference cameras. ...
  • Oyarbide Zubillaga, A. (Cranfield University, 2003-11)
    Manufacturing is the largest single contributor to the global economy. The evolution of consumer demands has pressurised companies into producing a larger variety of products, with improved specifications, reduced costs, ...
  • Xiradakis, N; Li, Yiguang (ASME, 2004)
    Accurate gas turbine diagnosis relies on accurate measurements from sensors. Unfortunately, sensors are prone to degradation or failure during gas turbine operations. In this paper a stack of decentralised artificial neural ...
  • Casaubieilh, P.; Ford, Helen D.; Tatam, Ralph P. (SPIE - International Society for Optics and Photonics, 2004-06-09)
    An optical fibre, Fizeau configuration Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) system is presented in this paper. The interferometer is formed between the distal end of the sample-arm fibre and the sample itself. This ensures ...
  • Li, Yiguang (ASME, 2004-07)
    Gas Path Analysis (GPA) and its different derivatives have been developed for more than thirty years and used widely and successfully by many gas turbine manufacturers and operators. In gas turbine gas path component ...
  • Hammond, David (2005-06-06)
    Dr David Hammond is a senior lecturer in Aerospace Engineering having joined Cranfield University in March 2002. Before this he worked for 14 years in the Sowerby Research Centre, the central corporate research centre for ...
  • Esteban, Jaime; Starr, Andrew G.; Willetts, Robert; Hannah, Paul; Bryanston-Cross, Peter (Springer, 2005-06-21)
    This paper reviews the potential benefits that can be obtained by the implementation of data fusion in a multi-sensor environment. A thorough review of the commonly used data fusion frameworks is presented together with ...
  • Charrett, Thomas O. H.; Ford, Helen D.; Tatam, Ralph P. (IOP Publishing, 2006)
    Two frequency planar Doppler Velocimetry (2ν-PDV) is a modification of the Planar Doppler Velocimetry (PDV) method that allows velocity measurements to be made, quickly and non intrusively, across a plane defined by a laser ...
