'Taking the heat' - developing propellants for high-temperature applications

Yahaya Mohammed
3MT (three minute thesis) presented at the 2016 Defence and Security Doctoral Symposium.
Since the early 1800s, nitrocellulose (NC) based propellants have gained popularity due to their low cost, ease of manufacture, and good ballistics. Vehicle airbags, small arms ammunition, aircraft ejection seat, tactical missiles and short to medium range rockets are some of the areas where NC propellants have been applied. Typical homogenous NC-based propellants depending on the energetic constituents are classified as single,...

Modelling the effects of temperature-dependent material properties in shear melt layers

Robert Timms
Technical paper presented at the 2016 Defence and Security Doctoral Symposium.
The mechanisms responsible for ignition of explosive materials in response to low energy stimuli, known as “insults" in the literature, are still not well understood. It is in general believed that explosive ignition is of thermal origin, with mechanical energy being converted into heat energy in localised regions, forming so-called \hot spots". When an explosive sample is subject to a mechanical insult pre-existing, or...

UAV Susceptibility and self-protection measures

Ioannis Vagias
Poster presentation at the 2016 Defence and Security Doctoral Symposium.The use of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) has proliferated in the defence, security and scientific communities. Although still immature, the UAV market is the fastest growing sector of the defence industry, as senior and junior tactical military commanders request frequently both Intelligence Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) and Close Air Support from unmanned aerial platforms. This increased dependence on UAVs, the associated attrition rate due to hostile...

109.5um Cascade LPG formation

Matthew Partridge
Spectra's recorded during the formation of a cascade LPG using the overwrite fabrication method. Each LPG is 3cm long with a 3cm gap between them.
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 60 cycles. The Left LPG was written first.

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.

Supporting data for tine options for alleviating compaction in wheelings.

Joanna Niziolomski
This data includes images of the tested tines and raw data behind the means presented in Table 2 (Full experimental data.xls) and Figure 2 (Cross sectional disturbance 175.xls).All relevant methodology can be found in the paper.

Institute of Environment and Health databases of research

Institute Of Environment And Health
These items contain the exported tables from four research databases collated by the Institute of Environment and Health, before the sites were closed down in 2016. They were maintained to provide details of research activities (funders, organisations, individuals and projects) in each specialised area: vanadium compounds, endocrine disruption, manganese, the indoor environment and air pollution.

Repeatability of LPG fixed exposure vs tracked

Matthew Partridge
Spectra from a series of LPGs fabricated by two different methods. The first five were fabricated by exposing them to 40s of UV irradiation. The second five where exposed until the LP mode (LP14) of interested reached the corrected wavelength.
174um period LPG in PS750 fibre

All LPG turning points from 100 to 200um

James Barrington & Matthew Partridge
This ZIP file contains a number of folders containing labelled with and LPG period number. Each folder then contains 5+ scans taken during fabrication of that particular period LPG. Each scan consists of a set of wavelengths and intensities recorded as an average of 10 scans.
This is the raw data associated with our paper 'Overwrite fabrication and tuning of Long Period Gratings'
Also includes a GIF showing the development of this data with each successive cycle.

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...
