Effects of Particulate Contamination and Jet Fuel Chemistry on the Nucleation of Water and Ice in Aircraft Fuel Systems

Judith Ugbeh
3 Minute Thesis presented at the Cranfield Doctoral Network Annual Event 2018. Winner of the 3 Minute Thesis competition.

The contamination and behaviour of water in aircraft fuel systems remains a significant area of global research interest following several aircraft incidents. Water and particulates in fuel may lead to ice formation. The resulting ice formed may eventually block the fuel filters and feed pipes creating safety problems. In order to engineer a lasting solution to the...

Linking Human and Machine - Towards Consumer - Driven Automated Manufacturing

Samet Isaev, Mohannad Jreissat, Christian Wagner & Harris Makatsoris
We established a link between linguistic descriptors describing food preferences and product manufacturing processes. Model-based methodology was employed to translate consumer preferences into product and process specifications. The aim of the research is the large scale personalization of formulated food product manufacture where consumers are also the con-creators of the food products they wish to buy. Fuzzy set modelling was used to capture the preferences and perceptions by different group of people. Then, models were...

Preprint: 'Improved State of Charge Estimation for Lithium-Sulfur Batteries'

Karsten Propp, Daniel Auger, Abbas Fotouhi, Monica Marinescu, Vaclav Knap & Stefano Longo
This is a preprint of a manuscript submitted for publication.
Good state of charge estimation in lithium-sulfur batteries (Li-S) is vital, as the simplest convention methods commonly used in lithium-ion batteries - open-circuit voltage measurement and 'coulomb counting' - are often ineffective for Li-S. Since Li-S is a new battery chemistry, there are few published techniques. Existing techniques based on the extended Kalman filter and the unscented Kalman filter have shown some promise, existing work has...

Baseband version of the bat-inspired spectrogram correlation and transformation receiver

Krasin Georgiev
Poster presentation at the 2016 Defence and Security Doctoral Symposium.Echolocating bats have evolved an excellent ability to detect, resolve and discriminate targets in highly challenging environments. They have had more than 50 million years of evolution to optimise their echolocation system and behavioural experiments have shown their exceptional ability to detect and classify targets even in highly cluttered surroundings. Behavioural experiments have demonstrated that bats are able to resolve closely located scatterers: • a two-point...

Shoe Lab - Methodology Video

Mariale Moreno, Fiona Charnley & Oscar Ponte
This video was produced in collaboration between Cisco, Cranfield University and brand consultancy The Clearing. It builds on research carried out by RECODE-NETWORK identifying and evaluating the opportunities a re-distributed production model offers to disrupt traditional industry models when combined with big data. The video shows the methodology followed to design the final shoe as an outcome of the project.

108.5 LPG with 500 overwrite 5s cycles

Matthew Partridge
Spectras recorded during the formation of an LPG using the overwrite fabrication method. The LPG was 2cm long
The LPGs were prepared with a 5second exposure time over repeated cycles. Each spectra was taken after a single cycle up to a total to 500 cycles.
The tracked data for the various LP modes is also included.

Ultra Low Cost, Explosiveness Test

Erick Galante, Nathalie Mai, Melissa Ladyman, Philip Gill & Tracey Temple
Poster presented at the 2017 Defence and Security Doctoral Symposium.
To investigate the emissions from open burning of explosives we have burnt explosives (10 mg) in a sealed glass vial (10 cm3). As the reaction occurred inside the glass vial, it could be captured on high speed camera allowing the observation combustion reaction. The profile of gaseous emissions was later determined via Gas Chromatography Mass Spectrometry. The glass vials were placed into an aluminium block, which...

Speculative activity, monetary policy and commodity prices

Wei Yao & Constantinos Alexiou
The dataset consists of key macroeconomic indicators sourced from the OECD and the FRED.

Accurate, fast and stable solver for electromagnetic scattering of absorbing layer materials

Alexandre Dély
Poster presentation at the 2016 Defence and Security Doctoral Symposium.The boundary element method is an efficient and flexible tool for the modelling of scattering of electromagnetic waves by conducting and penetrable objects. It finds applications in the solution of forward and inverse problems in e.g. radar footprint determination, stealth technology, and imaging for diagnostics and security. To model scattering by objects that are for almost perfectly conducting, the classic equations are augmented with a so...
