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...

Supplementary data to Metaldehyde removal from drinking water by adsorption on to filtration media and polymeric sorbents: mechanisms and optimisation

Catherine Rolph, Bruce Jefferson, Raffaella Villa & Francis Hassard
This study sheds light into adsorption of metaldehyde to different polymeric sorbents. Biologically active carbon had the greatest metaldehyde adsorption capacity. Natural organic matter reduced metaldehyde removal in competitive sorption environments. We theorized that microbial biofilms and thermal hydrolysis represent effective strategies for improving metaldehyde removal and reducing the rapid saturation of filtration media.

The Effect of Moisture on High Temperature Ageing of Extruded Double Base Propellant
Nitrocellulose (NC) based propellants are commonly used in military munitions and cartridge/propellant actuated devices (CAD/PAD). These propellants are generally classified as nitrate esters and are known for their tendency to chemically degrade over time. This chemical instability has been attributed to the relatively weak O-N bond has been shown to be responsible for this instability responsible for this bond on is the...

A numerical study of deep borehole heat exchangers in unconventional geothermal systems

Théo Renaud
Poster presented at the Cranfield Doctoral Network Annual Event 2018.
The geothermal energy sector is facing numerous challenges related to heat recovery efficiency and economic feasibility. Ongoing research on superheated/supercritical geothermal system, potentially representing a intensive amount of energy, is developed in Europe notably the Iceland Deep Drilling project (IDDP). The well IDDP-1, which reached a magma intrusion at a depth of 2100 m, raised new opportunities to untap the geothermal potential near shallow magmatic intrusions....

DNAN behaviour during laboratory-scaled explosiveness test

Erick Galante, Nathalie Mai, Melissa Ladyman, Philip Gill & Tracey Temple

Dataset for article entitled "The Programme Director and the Teaching Excellence Framework: How do we train the former to survive the latter?"

Ruth Massie
This is the base data from the survey undertaken for "The Programme Director and the Teaching Excellence Framework: How do we train the former to survive the latter?" in Higher Education Quarterly.
(The questionnaire used is at https://doi.org/10.17862/cranfield.rd.6652817.)

Underlying data for article titled 'The effect of UV irradiation duty cycle on the 2nd harmonic coupling efficiency in optical fiber long period gratings'

James Barrington, Matthew Partridge, Ralph Tatam & Stephen James
This data was used to generate Fig. 3, 4, and 5 presented in 'The effect of UV irradiation duty cycle on the 2nd harmonic coupling efficiency in optical fiber long period gratings'.
The data set contains transmission spectra for a 380 um period LPG with duty cycles varying from 0-100% in 5% increments.
Each duty cycle contains 10 spectra.
File nomenclature is "X%_duty_cycle_Y" where X is percentage of duty cycle and Y is irradiation cycle number.

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...

A DECISION SUPPORT TOOL FOR ENHANCED LANDFILL MINING

Frederic Coulon, Stuart Wagland & Zoe Griffiths
Enhanced Landfill Mining has great potential to reduce the negative effects of landfills on both the environment and human health, to reclaim valuable land and provide a new source of raw materials. However, uncertainties in economic feasibility and environmental and social outcomes act as a bottleneck to its widespread uptake. Here, we present a decision support tool which aims to reduce these uncertainties by assisting site operators in assessing the economic, environmental and social consequences...

Utilising Synthetic Aperture Radar Data-dome Collections for Building Feature Analysis

Brandon Corbett
Technical paper presented at the 2018 Defence and Security Doctoral Symposium.
Low-frequency synthetic aperture radar (LF-SAR) is a remote sensing measurement technique that can aid in covert intelligence gathering capabilities for detecting concealed targets in building, and obscured phenomena in general. The Airbus Defence and Space Ltd LF-SAR data dome project has provided a coherently collected three-dimensional data set using airborne circular SAR (CSAR) trajectories, with the potential of providing volumetric SAR imagery of obscured regions...

Power Gearbox and Pitch Control Mechanism for Open Rotors - Investigation of Preliminary Design Methodologies

Diana Guiomar San Benito
Poster presented at the Cranfield Doctoral Network Annual Event, September 2018.

The expected result of this PhD research is a design methodology that would allow establishing the feasibility of a pusher counter-rotating open rotor (CROR) engine architecture, taking into account both performance and mechanical integrity aspects. The analysis will consider the preliminary design of the main technology enablers, i.e. the advanced power gearbox (PGB) and the pitch change mechanism (PCM), delving into sizing, mechanical integrity aspects...
