    Barash has calculated the Casimir forces between parallel birefringent plates with optical axes parallel to the plate boundaries [Izv. Vyssh. Uchebn.\ Zaved., Radiofiz., {\bf 12}, 1637 (1978)]. The interesting new feature ...
  • Alternative Infill Strategies for Expensive Multi-Objective Optimisation 

    Rahat, A; Everson, RM; Fieldsend, JE (Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), 2017-07-15)
    Many multi-objective optimisation problems incorporate computationally or financially expensive objective functions. State-of-the-art algorithms therefore construct surrogate model(s) of the parameter space to objective ...

    Aims. We study the enigmatic B[e] star MWC 300 to investigate its disk and binary with milli-arcsecond-scale angular resolution. Methods. We observed MWC 300 with the VLTI/AMBER instrument in the H and K bands and ...
  • Ambient vibration re-testing and operational modal analysis of the Humber Bridge 

    Brownjohn, James; Magalhaes, Felipe; Caetano, Elsa; Cunha, Alvaro (Elsevier, 2010-08)
    An ambient vibration survey of the Humber Bridge was carried out in July 2008 by a combined team from the UK, Portugal and Hong Kong. The exercise had several purposes that included the evaluation of current technology ...
  • Ambient vibration studies for system identification of tall buildings 

    Brownjohn, James (Wiley, 2002-10-29)
    The performance of a building under wind and seismic loads depends on stiffness and mass distribution, and may be estimated using finite element codes. Experience has, however, shown that such finite element models often ...
  • Ambient vibration survey of the Bosporus Suspension Bridge 

    Brownjohn, James; Dumanoglu, AA; Severn, RT; Blakeborough, AB (Wiley, 1989-02)
    Traffic and wind excitation has been used to obtain the dynamic characteristics of the first Bosporus (Bogazici) Suspension Bridge. Structural symmetry and the absence of suspended side-spans allowed attention to be focused ...
  • Ambient vibration survey of the Fatih Sultan Mehmet (Second Bosporus) Suspension Bridge 

    Brownjohn, James; Dumanoglu, AA; Severn, RT (Wiley, 1992)
    Ambient accelerations due to dynamic excitation by wind and traffic were measured on the deck, towers, cables and hangers of the Fatih suspension bridge. From these measurements it was possible to obtain natural frequencies, ...
  • Ambipolar diffusion in low-mass star formation. I. General comparison with the ideal MHD case 

    Masson, J; Chabrier, G; Hennebelle, P; Vaytet, N; Commerçon, B (EDP Sciences, 2016-02-12)
    In this paper, we provide a more accurate description of the evolution of the magnetic flux redistribution during prestellar core collapse by including resistive terms in the magnetohydrodynamics (MHD) equations. We focus ...
  • AMI-LA radio continuum observations of Spitzer c2d small clouds and cores: Perseus region 

    Scaife, Anna M.M.; Hatchell, Jennifer; Davies, Matthew; Franzen, Thomas M.O.; Grainge, Keith J.B.; Hobson, Michael P.; Hurley-Walker, Natasha; Lasenby, Anthony N.; Olamaie, Malak; Perrott, Yvette C.; Pooley, Guy G.; Rodríguez-Gonzálvez, Carmen; Saunders, Richard D.E.; Schammel, Michel P.; Scott, Paul F.; Shimwell, Timothy; Titterington, David; Waldram, Elizabeth (Oxford University Press / Royal Astronomical Society, 2011)

  • Amplified mid-latitude planetary waves favour particular regional weather extremes 

    Screen, James A.; Simmonds, Ian (Nature Publishing Group, 2014)
    There has been an ostensibly large number of extreme weather events in the Northern Hemisphere mid-latitudes during the past decade [1]. An open question that is critically important for scientists and policy makers is ...
