Material strength evolution under high strain rates

Caitlin Gilroy
3 Minute Thesis presented at the Cranfield Doctoral Network Annual Event 2018.
Materials behave differently under high strain rates compared to that of lower strain rates, which are more likely to be experienced in everyday situations. High strain rate loading of metals is necessary in determining their material behaviour in high velocity impact situations within areas such as the automotive, aviation, aerospace and defence sectors, where material selection is vital for safety. In order to create...

End to End experiments Personalised Beverages Design

Harris Makatsoris
The food industry aims to create and supply food and drink products that satisfy their customers. Currently, products cannot be tailored to meet each individual's desires, only to the collective preferences of target markets. Is it possible to achieve the former, creating food products that match the individual consumer's explicit preferences? To achieve this, we must discover how consumer's perceive products. Once their perceptions are understood, we can tailor ingredient quantities to match the individual's...

PhD Thesis: An evidence base and critique for environmental regulatory reform (2014)

Chris Taylor
Societies have established various forms of governance to protect the natural environment from the adverse effects of human activity. While direct "command and control" regulation has achieved significant improvements in environmental protection, concerns for its efficiency have led governments to seek alternative approaches to achieve environmental policy objectives. Commentators describe a shift from "government" to "governance" as policy makers and regulators seek to harness wider social forces beyond government, while risk-based regulation is pursued to...

Behavioural Consequences of Risk are Inadequately Embedded in Contemporary Project Management Practice Leading to Sub-optimal Outcomes

Michael Kipp
3MT presented at the 2017 Defence and Security Doctoral Symposium.
The current methodology for the management of projects is driven by a plethora of guidance, techniques and practice often lacking the evidence from successful implementation particularly in projects with significant risk.
Causes of project failure are well documented and research indicates there are underlying reasons for failure including a shortage of relevant theory, inadequate skills and insufficient experience. There may also be over-reliance on systematic processes at...

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.

DRisk annual maximum potential soil moisture deficit (1900-2006) derived using MaRIUS large dataset

Ian Holman, Jerry Knox & David Haro
One set of 100 time series (as CSV) of annual maximum potential soil moisture deficit (PSMDmax) for 1900-2006 by a rotated longitude-latitude grid at a 0.22 degree resolution (European CORDEX grid) over a domain encompassing the United Kingdom. Driving variables are monthly precipitation and reference evapotranspiration (from HadRM3P, the regional climate model within weather@home2) created within the MaRIUS project (Managing the Risks, Impacts and Uncertainties of drought and water Scarcity), which are available for download...

108.5 LPG with 500 overwrite 5s cycles

Rapid characterisation of bioaerosols from rural, industrial and agricultural environments

Mahmud Shuaib
The aim of this study was twofold: 1) to compare two different bio aerosol sampling techniques, polycarbonate filters, and Coriolis®µ and 2) characterise bioaerosols by the analysis of PLFA biomarkers in order to identify the microbial communities present in contrasting outdoor environments (a WWTP, compost facility, three different farms, 2 parks and an urban area). Sample collection efficiency was 34% greater when collecting air samples with polycarbonate filters than with Coriolis in recreational parks where...

Improved State of Charge Estimation for Lithium-Sulfur Batteries

Karsten Propp, Daniel Auger, Abbas Fotouhi, Monica Marinescu, Vaclav Knap & Stefano Longo
This collection contains data associated with a research manuscript 'Improved State of Charge Estimation for Lithium-Sulfur Batteries'.
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...

Towards Determining Wall Properties with Bistatic Radar

James Elgy, Daniel Andre, Ivor Morrow & Mark Finnis
Poster presented at the 2017 Defence and Security Doctoral Symposium.
Remote sensing techniques to gather information about building structure and interiors are of significant interest for both military and civilian applications. Radar offers an attractive approach due its long-range, all-weather and non-destructive through-wall sensing nature. Radar however, is affected by the electrical properties of the medium the electromagnetic waves are passing through. For through-wall Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR), this leads to a defocusing and a distortion...
