Beampattern and Polarisation Synthesis of 3D RF-seeker Antenna Arrays

Luc Fourtinon
Poster presentation at the 2016 Defence and Security Doctoral Symposium.
Existing missile radar seekers use a mechanical rotating antenna to steer the radiating beam in the direction of the target. Recent research is investigating the possibility to replace the mechanical RF seeker with a novel 3D conformal antenna, embedded below the radome, that can steer the beam electronically. 3D conformal antenna arrays may offer many advantages, such as a higher gain and an extended coverage, and...

Effects of particulate contamination and jet fuel chemistry on the nucleation of water and ice in aircraft fuel systems

Judith Ugbeh
3MT presented at the 2018 Defence and Security Doctoral Symposium.
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 problem of ice in jet fuel it is important to...

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...

Data set for "Data-based Detection and Diagnosis of Faults in Linear Actuators"

Cristobal Ruiz Carcel & Andrew Starr
This data set presents the raw original data used in "Data-based detection & diagnosis of faults in Linear actuators".
The data was acquired from a linear actuator rig operated using different loading conditions and motion profiles. In addition, three different faults (lack of lubrication, spalling and backlash) were gradually seeded to the system in order to study fault detection and diagnosis capabilities of different algorithms. The data set includes actuator position and motor current measurements for...

Distributed gas sensing using microstructured optical fibres

James Bremner
3 Minute Thesis presented at the Cranfield Doctoral Network Annual Event 2018.
With a global warming potential 34 times that of CO2, as well as an explosion hazard, methane monitoring is of interest. Current technology requires the placement of a large number of sensors to cover an area. We propose a distributed technique to allow the use of a single measurement device to cover multiple sampling sites. Tunable Diode Laser Spectroscopy has been combined with optical...

Design and Integration of a Hybrid Electric Fan Propulsion System

Francesco Mastropierro
Poster presented at the Cranfield Doctoral Network Annual Event, September 2018.
Design and Integration of an Electric Fan Propulsion System for Hybrid Aircraft Electrification is one of the most promising trend for sustaining future aviation beyond the limits of current propulsion technologies. Advantages include lower emissions, higher efficiency components, better energy management and synergies with alternative technologies. Current limits are in higher costs, inferior power density and shorter ranges. Hybrid electric propulsion looks for synergies between...

Solid Composite Propellants for Improved Safety and Mechanical Properties
This work looks to optimise and develop novel composite propellant formulations for use in unconventional rocket motor designs, in particular an integrated ramjet rocket motor. The particular design constraints of such a motor require that the booster propellant, required to get the rocket motor up to operational speed, use the same nozzle as the sustainer propellant and as a result must have the same operational requirements such...
