Title

Photoelastic Stress and thermographic measurements of automotive windscreen defects generated by projectile impact 

Output type: Journal article
Journal title: Thermology International Journal
Month/year of publication: September 2007
Pagination: 110-113
Volume: 17 (3)
ISSN: 1560-604X
DOI: Not supplied ?
Research group: 2 - Product Engineering
Co-authors: C. Davies, R.D. Thomas
Other relevant details: This paper presents the first published experimental results of resin-repaired windscreen ‘chips’. A digital photoelastic stress measurement system is used together with thermography, in order to objectively characterise the optimal repair conditions.

Title

Three-dimensional time-dependent solution of the radiative and thermal transport problem in light-based cancer therapies

Output type: Conference contribution
Conference: 6th UK Conference on Boundary Integral Methods, Durham University
Month/year of publication: 01/09/2007
Number of pages: 241-250
Media of output:
ISSN: 978-09535558-3-3
Research group: 2 - Product Engineering
Co-authors: A. Marotin
Other relevant details: The extension of the transient Boundary Element Method into a parallelised version using MPI is considered, running on a Compute Cluster. The original application context is the irradiation of cancerous tissue with an incident high intensity light source.

Title

Development of a transient Boundary Element Method for modelling light-tissue interaction

Output type: Conference contribution
Conference: NAFEMS World Congress on Finite Element Methods, Vancouver, Canada
Month/year of publication: 22/05/2007
Number of pages:
Media of output: CD
ISSN:
Research group: 2 - Product Engineering
Co-authors: A. Marotin, G. Daniel
Other relevant details: This paper considers the development of a transient Boundary Element algorithm that solves the coupled problem of the radiative transport equation and the corresponding thermal diffusion problem, where the thermal source terms are obtained from the radiative solution. This paper won the ‘most innovative use of simulation technology’ award.

Title

A quality metric for virtual and physical prototyping of glass products

Output type: Conference contribution
Conference: 6th International COnference on Quality, Reliability and Maintenance, St Edmund Hall, Oxford
Month/year of publication: 22/03/2007
Number of pages: 118-128
Media of output:
ISSN: 978-1-901892-21-5
Research group: 2 - Product Engineering
Co-authors: R Bender, R. Head
Other relevant details: This paper investigates how virtual and real prototyping techniques can help convey the design intent of glass products. A usability function is generated using Thurstone’s psychophysical theory to objectively assess a range of design representations. The novel use of CNC generated graphite moulds in glass design is also presented.
