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...

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...

Linear Inverse Problem (LIP) Optimisation for Remote Sensing Applications - Spectral Reconstruction

Ayan Chatterjee
3MT presented at the 2018 Defence and Security Doctoral Symposium.
Remote sensing applications like classification and target detection, particularly for high demanded applications such as the detection of difficult targets from cluttered scene, depends on relevant wavelengths of information. While multispectral imagery in airborne or spaceborne platforms consists of a few wavelengths far apart from each other (usually less than 20 bands), which is found not sufficient enough. This project explores new concepts for using not...

"Research Data Management 3: Using CORD" workshop materials

Georgina Parsons
The third RDM training session offered at Cranfield, run on demand though gradually being replaced by self-directed learning on the Moodle VLE.
Intended Learning Outcomes
By the end of this workshop you will be able to:

- log in to CORD and navigate around;
- add items to CORD;
- understand how and when to apply restrictions to items;
- find further help and support.

Andrew Claydon PhD

Philip Gill, Andrew Claydon, Sally Gaulter & Guillaume Kister
The research aim of the PhD is to assess the factors which affect Resonant Acoustic Mixing (RAM) efficiency and investigate the art of the possible in terms of new explosiveformulations for the future. Cast-cured Polymer Bonded Explosives (PBXs) are composite materials which consist of high explosive crystals bound in a polymer matrix. Duringmanufacture, the crystals are dispersed throughout a liquid prepolymer, which is then cured into a crosslinked elastomeric solid. Dispersion can be achieved with...

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...

Battery thermal management system design, modelling and optimisation

Manlio Valerio Morganti
3 Minute Thesis presented at the Cranfield Doctoral Network Annual Event 2018.
The growth of the electric vehicle market has led to an increase in the diffusion of batteries. Batteries are energy storage devices subject to uneven heat generation, having unisotropic thermal properties and being forced to comply with tight temperature range requirements (-10°C to 40°C), to avoid aging and permanent performance drop at low temperatures and safety concerns at high temperatures. In addition to that,...

Properties of Composite Propellants Containing New Elastomeric Binders
Traditionally propellants have been made from materials specifically manufactured for this purpose. This project seeks to find whether commercially available thermoplastic elastomers (TPEs) can be used to replace some or all of the existing propellants. Traditionally composite propellants used an inert binder, usually hydroxyl terminated polybutadiene (HTPB), cross linked with an isocyanate and mixed with a powerful oxidiser, normally ammonium perchlorate (AP). It is thought that TPEs may...

Passive Bistatic Radar Detection Using Non-Stationary Transmitters of Opportunity

Nasyitah Ghazalli
3MT presentation at the 2016 Defence and Security Doctoral Symposium.
Passive Bistatic Radar (PBR) systems use non-cooperative illuminations of opportunity to detect, localise and track targets. They have attracted a lot of interest in recent years because 1) they can be operated and deployed at a relatively low cost 2) they are difficult to detect and hence allow covert operations in a hostile environment and 3) because of the proliferation of illuminators of opportunity.Various illuminators of...

New solutions for old problems

Alessandro Pontillo
3 Minute Thesis presented at the Cranfield Doctoral Network Annual Event, September 2018.
Highly flexible structures are now a common scenario in the aeronautic industry due to the adoption of slender and longer wings in order to reduce drag and increase the overall aircraft efficiency. Such configuration brings new challenges as structural dynamics now overlaps flight dynamics. Testing is then more important than ever. The Cranfield BEam Reduction and Dynamic Scaling (BEARDS) programme aims to provide...
