  • Studies on the reprocessability of poly(ether ether ketone) (PEEK) 

    McLauchlin, A; Ghita, OR; Savage, L (Elsevier, 2014)
    Whilst demonstrating desirable mechanical properties, corrosion resistance and the ability to retain structural integrity over extended temperatures, PEEK (Poly (Ether Ether Ketone)) remains expensive, restricting broader ...
  • Studies on the thermal and mechanical behaviour of PLA-PET blends 

    McLauchlin, AR; Ghita, OR (Wiley, 2016-07-20)
    The increasing use of bio-sourced and biodegradable polymers such as PLA in bottle packaging presents an increasing challenge to the PET recycling process. Despite advanced separation technologies to remove PLA from PET ...
  • A study of interface adhesion between polyamide 6 (PA6) and nitrile rubber (NBR) 

    Wang, Yuan; Ghita, O.; Kavanagh, Dave; Chandler, Duncan (Wiley, 2014-03-21)
    The mechanism of interface bonding of a selected nitrile rubber compound vulcanized on polyamide 6 was studied using transmission electron microscopy. The two types of interfaces identified were formed through mechanical ...
  • Sub-nanosecond electromagnetic-micromagnetic dynamic simulations using the finite-difference time-domain method 

    Aziz, Mustafa M. (2009)
    This paper presents an efficient and simple approach of implementing the Landau-Lifshitz-Gilbert (LLG) equation of magnetisation motion within the Finite-difference Time-domain (FDTD) method. This combined electromagneti ...
  • Substructural Identification of Flexural Rigidity for Beam-Like Structures 

    Koo, K-Y; Yi, J-H (Hindawi Publishing Corporation, 2015)
    This study proposes a novel substructural identification method based on the Bernoulli-Euler beam theory with a single variable optimization scheme to estimate the flexural rigidity of a beam-like structure such as a bridge ...
  • SUDS, LID, BMPs, WSUD and more - The evolution and application of terminology surrounding urban drainage 

    Fletcher, Tim D.; Shuster, William; Hunt, William F.; Ashley, Richard; Butler, David; Arthur, Scott; Trowsdale, Sam; Barraud, Sylvie; Semadeni-Davies, Annette; Bertrand-Krajewski, Jean-Luc; Mikkelsen, Peter Steen; Rivard, Gilles; Uhl, Mathias; Dagenais, Danielle; Viklander, Maria (Taylor & Francis, 2014)
    The management of urban stormwater has become increasingly complex over recent decades. Consequently, terminology describing the principles and practices of urban drainage has become increasingly diverse, increasing the ...
  • Supercapacitance from cellulose and carbon nanotube nanocomposite fibers 

    Deng, Libo; Young, Robert J.; Kinloch, Ian A.; Abdelkader, Amr M.; Holmes, Stuart M.; De Haro-Del Rio, David A.; Eichhorn, Stephen J. (American Chemical Society, 2013)
    Multiwalled carbon nanotube (MWNT)/cellulose composite nanofibers have been prepared by electrospinning a MWNT/cellulose acetate blend solution followed by deacetylation. These composite nanofibers were then used as ...
  • Support vector regression for anomaly detection from measurement histories 

    Kromanis, Rolands; Kripakaran, Prakash (Elsevier, 2013)
    This research focuses on the analysis of measurements from distributed sensing of structures. The premise is that ambient temperature variations, and hence the temperature distribution across the structure, have a strong ...
  • Suppressed silicide formation in FePt thin films by nitrogen addition 

    Tran, Y.; Wright, C. David (Elsevier, 2013)
    FePt and FePtN thin films have been prepared on silicon substrates by the relatively new deposition technique known as High Target Utilization Sputtering. Films were annealed post-deposition at temperatures up to 800 °C ...
