Deformation and Damage of Random Fibrous Networks
Fibrous networks are encountered in various natural and synthetic materials. Typically, they have random microstructures with complex patterns of fibre distribution. This microstructure, together with significant (in many ...
Indentation response of a 3D non-woven carbon-fibre composite
(Cambridge University Press, 2018-01-16)
The indentation response of a 3D noninterlaced composite comprising three sets of orthogonal carbon-fibre tows in an epoxy matrix is investigated. The 3D composites have a near isotropic and ductile indentation response. ...
Community Media and Digital Inclusion
This civic engagement model is comprehensibly embedded in the ethos of the community media move-ment, but the role of community media, however, tends not to be recognised within state and govern-ment-led community development ...
Young people and greenhouse gas emissions at music festivals
(Taylor and Francis, 2018-03-22)
Is Participation in Community Media an Agent of Change?
In accounts of community media, participation is often described as a social process that is linked with social change. By encouraging participation, it is often argued, it should be possible to achieve socially progressive ...
Model design of a superconducting quantum interference device of magnetic field sensors for magnetocardiography
In recent years, there has been an increase in the study of magnetocardiography (MCG), complementary to electrocardiography (ECG) research, with the purpose of increasing accuracy in the diagnosis of heart and brain ...
Remote Sensing Scene Classification Based on Convolutional Neural Networks Pre-Trained Using Attention-Guided Sparse Filters
Semantic-level land-use scene classiﬁcation is a challenging problem, in which deep learning methods, e.g., convolutional neural networks (CNNs), have shown remarkable capacity. However, a lack of sufﬁcient labeled images ...
Applying Kinaesthetic Empathy and Extended Mind Theory to Invasive and Discreet Instruments in Sound-Based Live Performance
(Cambridge University Press, 2018-12-21)
I have taken the ambiguous psychology of Kinaesthetic Empathy and the relatively recent ideas that form Extended Mind Theory and re-contextualised them so they are relevant to sound-based live performance. I then used these ...
Enter the World’: James Cameron’s Avatar (2009) and the Family-Adventure Movie
In this chapter, I contextualise the extraordinary success of James Cameron's Avatar (2009) by relating it to dominant global box office trends, with a particular emphasis on the prominence of fantasy and Science Fiction ...
Deep penetration of ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene composites by a sharp-tipped punch
The penetration of unidirectional (UD) and [0o/90o] cross-ply ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene fibre composites by sharp-tipped cylindrical punches has been investigated. While the measured penetration pressure for ...
