Torsion tests on small and large-scale RHS with circular wall cut-outs

Conference Proceeding
Ridley-Ellis, D., Owen, J. S., & Davies, G. (2007)
Torsion tests on small and large-scale RHS with circular wall cut-outs
The results of small and large-scale torsion tests on rectangular section tubes with circular wall perforations are presented and discussed. Perforations are shown to cause th...

A hybrid inverter system for medium voltage applications using a low voltage auxiliary CSI

Conference Proceeding
Papadopoulos, S., Rashed, M., Klumpner, C., & Wheeler, P. (2014)
A hybrid inverter system for medium voltage applications using a low voltage auxiliary CSI. https://doi.org/10.1109/ecce.2014.6953779
Hybrid converters consist of a main inverter processing the bulk of the power with poor waveform performance and a fast and versatile auxiliary inverter to correct the distort...

Designing a usable interface for an interactive robot.

Conference Proceeding
Keates, S., Clarkson, J., & Robinson, P. (1999)
Designing a usable interface for an interactive robot. In ICORR '99: 6th International Conference on Rehabilitation Robotics (156-162
The traditional emphasis of Rehabilitation Robotics has been dominated largely by the logistics of system development rather than how to maximise overall system usability [1]....

The use of a visual grading code of practice in the UK in the assessment of the mechanical properties of in situ structural timber elements

Conference Proceeding
Bather, M. J., & Ridley-Ellis, D. J. (2019)
The use of a visual grading code of practice in the UK in the assessment of the mechanical properties of in situ structural timber elements. In SHATiS 2019: 5th International Conference on Structural Health Assessment of Timber Structures (89-98
The estimation of the mechanical properties of in situ timber elements is an essential part of the structural appraisal of many existing buildings and structures. Currently, i...

Public private partnership - experiences of ICT in the UK, Germany and Austria

Conference Proceeding
McQuaid, R. W., & Scherrer, W. (2006)
Public private partnership - experiences of ICT in the UK, Germany and Austria
The political context of governments differs between the UK, Germany and Austria, but each government currently has a positive view of PPP. There are many similarities to the ...

Deriving Machine to Machine (M2M) Traffic Model from Communication Model

Conference Proceeding
Barakat, B., Keates, S., Arshad, K., & Wassell, I. J. (2019)
Deriving Machine to Machine (M2M) Traffic Model from Communication Model. In The Fifth International Symposium on Innovation in Information and Communication Technology (ISIICT 2018), (27-31). https://doi.org/10.1109/ISIICT.2018.8613727
The typical traffic models proposed in literature can be considered as heuristic models since they only reflect the stochastic characteristic of the generated traffic. In this...

Test Machine Effect in the determination of modulus of elasticity for strength-graded timber

Conference Proceeding
Gil-Moreno, D., Ridley-Ellis, D., & Harte, A. M. (2021)
Test Machine Effect in the determination of modulus of elasticity for strength-graded timber. In WCTE 2021: World Conference on Timber Engineering Proceedings
This paper investigates if the relationship between the global and local moduli of elasticity (MoE), measured in bending tests, is affected by the test machines employed, and ...

Comparing usefulness of acoustic measurements on standing trees for segregation by timber stiffness.

Conference Proceeding
Gil-Moreno, D., & Ridley-Ellis, D. (2015)
Comparing usefulness of acoustic measurements on standing trees for segregation by timber stiffness. In R. J. Ross, R. Gonçalves, & X. Wang (Eds.), Proceedings: 19th International Nondestructive Testing and Evaluation of Wood Symposium (378-385
