Nuclear arms control: optimising verification processes through formal modelling

Paul Beaumont
Technical paper presented at the 2016 Defence and Security Doctoral Symposium.Arms control verification processes do not in practice allow for the parties involved to gather complete information about each other. Instead, each must make decisions about whether or not other parties are complying with their obligations on the basis of limited information. They must also make decisions during negotiation of a verification regime about the measures to be used, and during implementation of that regime...

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...

Vanadium Database of Global Research Activity (VanDOGRA)

In 2016, the VanDOGRA 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 VanDOGRA project description follows:

There is a significant amount of funded research currently ongoing worldwide on the environmental and human health effects of vanadium compounds. In order to provide interested stakeholders with up to date information...

Modelling Ultraviolet Missile Seekers

3MT presentation at the 2016 Defence and Security Doctoral Symposium.Surface to Air Missile (SAM) seekers are beginning to make use of wavebands other than the traditional Infrared (IR). One of the wavebands they are beginning to use is the Ultraviolet (UV). This study aims to prove that modelling of typical missile seekers utilising UV is possible and to investigate the variables which influence the performance. The study will also investigate methods by which the aircraft...

Solubility and chemical interaction of nitrocellulose in plasticisers

Nathan Flood & Matthew Parker
Technical paper presented at the 2016 Defence and Doctoral Symposium.
Abstract: Nitrocellulose (NC) is commonly used as an energetic binder in explosive and propellant formulations. During the formulation and casting stages NC can be mixed with a variety of plasticisers with the aim of tuning the mechanical properties of the charge to suit the specified requirements. Historically there have been issues with the solubility of NC in various plasticisers which has created manufacturing problems leading to...

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.

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...

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.
