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...

Conceptualising Supply Chain Management: An Objective-Oriented Approach

Hussain Alkebaisi
Poster presented at the Cranfield Doctoral Network Annual Event 2018.
Although it has been more than three decades since the concept of Supply Chain Management (SCM) was first introduced, there are still significant attempts at, and a call for conceptualising, defining, remodelling and identifying the theory(s) behind it. There is no consensus in the literature on a concise and precise definition of SCM nor its underpinning theory(s). A rigorous theoretical framework has not yet been developed;...

Rapid characterisation of bioaerosols from rural, industrial and agricultural environments

Mahmud Shuaib
The aim of this study was twofold: 1) to compare two different bio aerosol sampling techniques, polycarbonate filters, and Coriolis®µ and 2) characterise bioaerosols by the analysis of PLFA biomarkers in order to identify the microbial communities present in contrasting outdoor environments (a WWTP, compost facility, three different farms, 2 parks and an urban area). Sample collection efficiency was 34% greater when collecting air samples with polycarbonate filters than with Coriolis in recreational parks where...

Sustainable reuse of oil wastewater for irrigation in drylands

Alban Echchelh
3 Minute Thesis presented at the Cranfield Doctoral Network Annual Event 2018.
The oil and gas industry generates significant volumes of wastewater termed ‘produced water’. Produced water is usually managed through disposal and discharging techniques which are environmentally and economically costly. A significant share of oil and gas production takes place in water-scarce drylands. Produced water reuse for irrigation offers an alternative to current disposal practices while providing water to farming in drylands. However, the quality...

Informational security: Dis(satisfaction)

Victoria Smy
Poster presented at the 2018 Defence and Security Doctoral Symposium.
Objectives: The research conducted aims to determine whether there are common themes and trends emerging from perceptions of information security (Infosec) practices amongst professionals working in defence and security organisations.Design: A short data capture initiative was implemented in a classroom environment. The initiative served multiple purposes:1.To act as a taster of qualitative research2.To provide a [sanitised and cleansed] database for future research students to try out...

Development of a Pulse Shape Discrimination Algorithm

Jack Wood
Poster presented at the 2018 Defence and Security Doctoral Symposium.
Pulse Shape Discrimination is the process of distinguishing between radiation types such as neutrons or gamma-rays. Dual detector scintillators can be used as they fluoresce from both neutron and gamma interactions. Once the light has been collected on the photo sensor and its electric signal gets digitised, discrimination algorithms can be applied to identify the radiation type on a event-by-event basis. Several types of algorithms exist,...

Effective Polarization Filtering Techniques for Ground Penetrating Radar Applications

Sebastian Wirth
Poster presented at the 2018 Defence and Security Doctoral Symposium.
Ground penetrating radar (GPR) is increasingly being used for landmine detection. In contrast to metal detecting, GPR can be used for detection of low-metal content or non-metal content targets. Subsurface radar still suffers from two typical problems, a strong clutter response from the surface and high signal to clutter levels in the underground. This paper addresses these problems through the use of a novel near-field full-polarimetric...

Sediment fingerprinting: source classification

Kim Vercruysse & Robert Grabowski
This data is related to a research project using sediment fingerprinting based on Diffuse Reflectance Infrared Fourier Transform Spectrometry (DRIFTS) to estimate sediment source contributions to suspended sediment in rivers. The research took place in the River Aire catchment, United Kingdom. The data was collected between 2014 and 2017.
Two types of data are available:
1. Suspended sediment concentrations during high-flow events (SuspendedSedimentConcentration_RiverAire.csc). Samples were collected with a depth-integrating suspended sediment sampler from the side of the...

Micro-CT scan of medial clavicle

Hannah McGivern
The first stage of this inter-disciplinary doctoral research was to scan a sample of sternal clavicles, to assess changes in the structural and mechanical properties with age, using micro-computed tomography. An image sequence was then generated using ImageJ, which shows the changes in the cross-sectional shape and proportion of cortical to trabecular bone throughout the medial third of one clavicle from the sample analysed during this investigation.
