Nonlinear vibration analysis of a complex aerospace structure

Samson Cooper
Technical paper presented at the 2016 Defence and Security Doctoral Symposium.
Complex shaped aerodynamic structures such as deployable missiles are prone to exhibit some level of nonlinear phenomena due to their aerodynamic tailored design and application. Aside from the aeroelastic control challenges experienced by a missile, a fundamental challenge encountered by a deployable missile is the inevitable concentrated structural nonlinearities which are observed around the hinge of its fins. Due to the current design and manufacturing...

Shoe Lab

Database of Global Research Activity on Manganese (DOGRAM)

Institute Of Environment And Health
In 2016, the MHRP database/website was closed, and this fileset is the csv export of database content (one csv for each table; tblIAddress is indeed empty), preserved as it may still be of value to researchers in this area. The MHRP project description follows:

In addition to the research being conducted as part of the MHRP, there are many other activities underway world-wide. In order to provide interested stakeholders with up to date information on the...

COMBAT SIMULATION - TWO SIDES.xls

Petros Boutselis & Trevor Ringrose
The data are the outputs of the simulation of a closed-loop, two-sides (Blue vs Red) combat model saved in an Excel spreadsheet. The 1st tab has the input data while the other two tabs have the outputs for the Blue and for the Red. Each column in the Input tab is a design point randomly selected (250 in total). The first two rows represent the number of tanks and recce of the Blue, while rows...

%0A
%0AAbstract%3A%0A%0AOptical%0Ainterferometry is a widely used technique for ultra-precision distance%0Ameasurements in many areas of science and technology, enabling fundamental%0Aphysical experiments, such as the hunt for gravitational waves, and%0Aunderpinning important industrial technologies, such as semiconductor%0Afabrication. My particular research deals with the question on how multiple%0Ameasurements at different points can be taken simultaneously using only one%0Ainstrument. This can be achieved by appropriately modulating...

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...

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...

Low-altitude unmanned aerial vehicles for the rapid and high-resolution determination of contamination

Peter Martin
Poster presentation at the 2016 Defence and Security Doctoral Symposium. Following the events of March 2011 at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant (FDNPP), a considerable quantity of radiation was released into the local Japanese as well as the global environment. Much work and expense is currently being devoted to the remediation of a large area of eastern Japan contaminated primarily by radiocaesium. Due to the complex nature of the environment affected by the release,...

Crowdsourcing with serious games for defence procurement: reducing 'In-Service' modifications through early mass-user engagement

Edward Oates
Poster presentation at the 2016 Defence and Security Doctoral Symposium. This study takes a novel approach to Human-Computer Interface design within defence procurement. Through the use of a Serious Game, developed using Open Source coding techniques and internally Crowdsourced, the detailed design of defence equipment is developed through a wider than usual range of user perspectives. Initial results show a quantitative and qualitative link between user designed features and mission success.

'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,...
