  • Lucey, Timothy; Moran, Ken; Reid, Mark; Huggett, Paul; Cortie, Michael; Wuhrer, Ric (Elsevier Science Sa, 2012)
    The interfacial phenomena occurring when a white iron of low melting point is cast onto a steel substrate are considered. Such layered composites offer the prospect of combining the toughness of steel and the wear-resistance ...
  • Heness, Gregory; Yeung, Wing; Wuhrer, Ric (Elsevier, 2008)
    The development of the phases in the interface of roll-bonded Al/Cu metal laminates controls the strength. Phase development as a function of sintering time was monitored via X-ray diffraction and X-ray mapping. Both ...
  • Teng, J; Smith, Scott; Yao, J; Chen, J (Elsevier Sci Ltd, 2003)
    A variety of debonding failure modes have been observed in tests on reinforced concrete (RC) beams strengthened by bonding fibre reinforced polymer (FRP) plates to their tension face. These can be broadly classified into ...
  • Fan, Jinlin; Zhang, Bo; Zhang, Jian; Guo, Wenshan; Liu, Feifei; Guo, Yeye; Wu, Haiming; Ngo, Huu Hao (Elsevier, 2013)
    In this study, an intermittent-aerated subsurface flow constructed wetland (SFCW) A was set up to assess its performance in decentralized rural sewage treatment. A conventional SFCW B and a subsurface wastewater infiltration ...
  • Moulton, Bruce; Mcgregor, Helen; Coates, Cheryl; Cedercreutz, Kettil (New Zealand Association for Cooperative Education, 2004)
  • Yeung, Herbert; Lowe, David; Murray, Stephen (International Association of Online Engineering, 2010)
    There has been growing interest in, and development of, remotely accessible laboratories as a mechanism for improving access and flexibility, and enabling sharing of facilities. Differences in focus, philosophy, approach ...
  • Jiang, Zhangyan; Huete, Alfredo; Liu, Jing; Qi, J (S P I E - International Society for Optical Engineering, 2007)
    In red-NIR reflectance space, the Modified Soil Adjusted Vegetation Index (MSAVI) isolines, representing similar vegetation biophysical quantities, are neither convergent to a point nor parallel to each other. Consequently, ...
  • Qi, J; Huete, Alfredo; Moran, M; Chehbouni, A; Jackson, R. (Elsevier, 1993)
    A temporal sequence of 15 SPOT HRV images and low altitude aircraft reflectance data were obtained over soil and cotton fields at the Maricopa Agricultural Center, Arizona from April to October 1989. The SPOT data included ...
  • Gao, Wei; Wang, Chao; Zhang, Nong (Professional Engineering Publishing Ltd, 2010)
    Interstory drifts of multi-story buildings with interval parameters subjected to stationary or non-stationary earthquake excitations are investigated. A multi-story building is modelled as a shear beam structure. The ...
  • Gao, Wei; Zhang, Nong; Ma, J.; Wang, X.B. (Professional Engineering Publishing Ltd, 2008)
    Dynamic response analysis of truss structures with interval parameters under interval loads are investigated using a new method called the interval factor method (IFM). Using the IFM, the structural physical parameters, ...
  • Liu, Nengguang; Gao, Wei; Song, Chongmin; Zhang, Nong; Pi, Yong Lin (Academic Press Ltd- Elsevier Science Ltd, 2013)
    Interval dynamic response analysis of vehicle-bridge interaction system with uncertain parameters is studied in this paper. The bridge's and vehicle's parameters are considered as interval variables. A half-car model is ...
  • Li, Fangyi; Luo, Zhen; Rong, Jianhua; Zhang, Nong (Elsevier B.V., 2013)
    This paper proposes an interval uncertain multi-objective optimisation (IUMOO) method for structures with uncertain-but-bounded parameters. An adaptive Kriging model is established to improve the computational efficiency ...
  • Pi, Yong Lin; Bradford, Mark; Gao, W (Elsevier, 2011)
    This paper investigates the interval thermoelastic analysis for the responses of elastically restrained steel beams under a linear temperature gradient. Previous studies of thermal responses of such beams have been based ...
  • Wu, Jinglai; Luo, Zhen; Zhang, Yunqing; Zhang, Nong; Chen, Liping (John Wiley & Sons Ltd, 2013)
    This study proposes a new uncertain analysis method for multibody dynamics of mechanical systems based on Chebyshev inclusion functions The interval model accounts for the uncertainties in multibody mechanical systems ...
  • Vucetic, Branka.; Munasinghe, Kumudu S.; Jamalipour, Abbas. (2007-03-12)
    In this paper, a novel architecture for interworking of the Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN) and the Third Generation (3G) mobile cellular network is presented. This architecture is a hybrid model with additional controls ...
  • Mojumdar, Subhash; Prasad, R; Sun, L; Vernart, J; Eichhorn, S; Iqbal, M; Elkamel, A; Madhurambal, G; Meenakshisundaram, S; Varshney, K; Verenkar, V; Jona, E; Janotka, Ivan; Ray, Abhi; Chowdhury, Babur (International Congress of Chemistry and Environment, 2009)
    Thermodynamic modelling is a powerful tool for predicting and understanding the behaviour of vcirious systems. There are many thermoanalytical techniques such as thermogravimetric analysis (TGA), high resolution thermogravimetric ...
  • Indraratna, Buddhima; Muttuvel, Thevaragavan; Khabbaz, Hadi (ASCE, 2008)
    Chemical stabilisation is a popular technique to improve the erosion resistance of soils. In this study, two chemical stabilisers, namely lignosulfonate and general purpose Portland cement were tested on two different ...
  • Zareie, Hadi; Gokmen, V; Javadipour, I (Assn Food Scient Techn India, 2003)
    The molecular structures of pectin networks and gels have been imaged using atomic force microscopy (AFM). All the samples were deposited from aqueous solution onto the surface of freshly cleaved mica, air dried, and then ...
  • Willey, Keith; Jolly, Lesley; Tibbits, Gregory; Gardner, Anne (Instituto Superior de Engenharia de Lisboa, 2011)
    Arguably, the most important opportunity to acquire the standards and norms of the discipline and develop researchers' judgement is the peer review process a?? but this depends on the quality of the reviews. 'Good' feedback ...
  • Gardner, Anne; Willey, Keith (Universidad Politecnica de Madrid, Spain, 2011)
    Given that engineering is a practice-based profession, one of the benefits of collaborative learning is that it provides the opportunity to simulate this practice within classroom activities. While not replacing the benefits ...
