Research support materials

Georgina Parsons
This collection gathers together materials designed by the Library Service to support research at Cranfield University. Focusing on research data management (RDM) it includes training and advocacy materials. We are sharing these to engage in and encourage community discussions and shared learning on approaches to research support and training.
See also our collection about The Impact Game, a research support board/card game we have developed: https://doi.org/10.17862/cranfield.rd.c.4080161.

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...

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...

Improving Energy Efficiency in Wastewater Treatment. Identification of Key Parameters and Key Performance Indicators

Pablo Campo Moreno
In this presentation we propose to identify relevant parameters (key performance indicators, KPIs) that better describe the performance of a given treatment stage along with its corresponding energy demand. The final goal for compiling KPIs is the calculation of the Water Treatment Energy Index. This index evaluates the energy efficency in wastewater treatment plants and will allow one to readily compare energy utilization from different plants in a systematic way.

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.

Neutrinos for Non-Proliferation

Elisabeth Kneale
Technical paper presented at the 2018 Defence and Security Doctoral Symposium.

Identifying the existence of a clandestine reactor in a complex nuclear landscape for nuclear threat reduction is challenging. WATCHMAN will demonstrate for the first time the feasibility of detecting the signal from a hidden reactor against the background of a second reactor. A kilotonne-scale detector to be built underground in the Boulby Mine in North Yorkshire, WATCHMAN will detect antineutrinos - the unshieldable by-product of...
