Through the Looking Glass: Exploring the Relationship Between Nonverbal and Verbal Behaviour on Rapport and Dyadic Cooperation

Lynn Weiher
Poster presented at the 2017 Defence and Security Doctoral Symposium.
This research programme wishes to explore the relationship between verbal and nonverbal behaviour, rapport, and dyadic cooperation. Although researchers have long recognised the complementary roles that verbal and nonverbal behaviour play in interaction, we know little about how verbal and nonverbal mimicry co-occur, nor how these relate to the established outcomes of rapport (internal perception) or cooperation (external behaviour).
In this study, dyads engage in short interview-style...

Imaging and Discrimination of High-Z Materials with Muon Scattering Tomography

Leonor Frazao, S. Maddrell-Mander, C. Thomay, J. Velthuis & C. Steer
Technical paper presented at the 2017 Defence and Security Doctoral Symposium.
We have developed methods to define the edges of uranium blocks embedded in concrete, and to discriminate them from different high-Z materials, using muon scattering tomography. There is a need to characterise containers of nuclear waste without having to open them. This is particularly important for legacy waste, which includes large containers with unknown materials. Muon scattering tomography uses as probes the natural occurring cosmic...

Covering both technology and social sciences research, contributions include technical papers, a 3MT (three minute thesis) competition, a...

Shear Localisation During Deformation of Thermo-Visco-Plastic Materials

Robert Timms
Technical Paper presented at the 2017 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”. We investigate how an instability caused by thermal softening may give rise to...

Workshop Series Towards Preference Marketplace Development

Samet Isaev, Harris Makatsoris, Stephen Green & Fabrizio Ceschin
A series of workshops have been conducted to develop a digital crowdsourcing tool. Preference marketplace is inspired from traditional stock market and prediction markets. the aim of the proposed method is to engage consumers using game mechanics in order to aggregate large and diverse group of people`s opinion to identify the most promising new product ideas and concepts. First we conducted paper based workshops to collect feedback from users. Participants engagement were very good and...

Rapid Monitoring of Bioaerosols from industrial, rural and urban environments

Sonia Garcia Alcega, Frederic Coulon & Sean Tyrrel
•Sampling at constant flow rate and varying sampling time: - does not affect in presence/absence of MVOCs (70% similarity) - There is large difference in abundance (ng.m-3), (20% similarity). • Sampling at different flow rates and varying sampling time affects both peak detection and concentration.

Anomaly Detection for Security Imaging

Jerone Andrews
Technical paper presented at the 2016 Defence and Security Doctoral Symposium.

Non-intrusive inspection systems are increasingly used to scan intermodal freight shipping containers, at national ports, to ensure cargo conformity with customs regulations. Initially, each container is risk assessed based on shipping information such as origin, destination, and manifest. If the risk is deemed sufficiently high the container is imaged, typically by non-intrusive X-ray radiography. Finally, on the basis of the X-ray image, a human operator...

Interviews of Human Intelligence (HUMINT) Officers

Jordan Nunan, Rebecca Milne, Andrea Shawyer, Dave Walsh & Ian Stanier
Poster presented at the 2017 Defence and Security Doctoral Symposium.
Intelligence led policing is deemed a proactive measure to counter criminal activity. The use of both overt and covert practices are used to support this proactive approach to policing England and Wales. There are a variety of methods that agencies can use to collect intelligence. First amongst collection capabilities is the discipline of HUMINT, the branch charged with eliciting intelligence through interaction with human sources, such...

How to Predict the Vibration Energy Dissipation of Bolted Joint?

Damien Lancereau
3MT presented at the 2017 Defence and Security Doctoral Symposium.
The objective of this PhD is to investigate and understand the dynamics of joints in built-up structures. Currently, we do not understand the influence of the joints on the damping or the stiffness of a system. Our work will try to improve the quality of dynamics in finite element simulations. The aeronautic industry is currently limited in there design by the lake of dynamic joint model....

Searching for High Density Material in Cargo Containers Using Gravity Gradiometry

David Leahy
Poster presented at the 2016 Defence and Security Doctoral Symposium.
Imaging cargo containers at ports in this country is an important task, especially if they are being checked for possible fissile material. Some detection methods cannot be used as they are too destructive. A possible alternative is the use of gravity gradiometry - a non-destructive sensing technique which can provide better resolution than straightforward gravity readings, with the trade-off being less penetration power. The resulting inverse...

Landfill mining report_2016.pdf

Luisa Canopoli, Stuart Wagland & Frederic Coulon
An era of rising consumption has led to resource scarcity across major industries. One way to overcome this challenge and ascertain future supply of resources is recovery of landfilled material. This so-called landfilled mining may valorise previously discarded material streams for a number of purposes and contribute to a circular economy. Across England and Wales, there are more than 20,000 landfill sites of which 90% have been closed before 1996. Besides the general belief that...
