  • Slepyan, Leonid (2010-05)
    A nonuniform crack growth problem is considered for a homogeneous isotropic elastic medium subjected to the action of remote oscillatory and static loads. In the case of a plane problem, the former results in Rayleigh waves ...
  • Gorbushin, Nikolai; Mishuris, Gennady (2016-08-01)
    A model for crack propagation along a non-locally pre-stressed interface in ceramic materials is studied. The problem is analysed on a discrete chain of oscillators, with local and non-local interactions. The pre-stressed ...
  • Hubbard, Alun Lloyd; Bradwell, Tom; Golledge, Nicholas; Hall, Adrian; Patton, Henry; Sugden, David; Cooper, Rhys; Stoker, Martyn (2009-04)
    We present results from a suite of forward transient numerical modelling experiments of the British and Irish Ice Sheet (BIIS), consisting of Scottish, Welsh and Irish accumulation centres, spanning the last Glacial period ...
  • Arenz, Christian; Burgarth, Daniel; Hillier, Robin (2017-03-03)
    For finite-dimensional quantum systems, such as qubits, a well established strategy to protect such systems from decoherence is dynamical decoupling. However many promising quantum devices, such as oscillators, are infinite ...
  • Morini, L.; Piccolroaz, A.; Mishuris, G. (IOP Publishing, 2013)
    This paper is concerned with energy release rate for dynamic steady state crack problems in elastic materials with microstructures. A Mode III semi-infinite crack subject to loading applied on the crack surfaces is considered. ...
  • Boyce, Richard D; Horn, John R; Hassanzadeh, Oktie; Waard, Anita De; Schneider, Jodi; Luciano, Joanne S; Rastegar-Mojarad, Majid; Liakata, Maria (2013-01-01)
    Out-of-date or incomplete drug product labeling information may increase the risk of otherwise preventable adverse drug events. In recognition of these concerns, the United States Federal Drug Administration (FDA) requires ...
  • Diao, Ren; MacParthaláin, Neil Seosamh; Shen, Qiang (IEEE Press, 2013)
    Various strategies have been exploited for the task of feature selection, in an effort to identify more compact and better quality feature subsets. Most existing approaches focus on selecting from a static pool of training ...
  • Naik, Nitin (Aberystwyth University, 2015)
    Designers of effective and efficient fuzzy systems have long recognised the value of inferential hybridity in the implementation of sparse fuzzy rule based systems. Which is to say: such systems should have recourse to ...
  • Movchan, Natasha; Movchan, Alexander; Mishuris, Gennady (2011-09-06)
    An interfacial crack is placed within a two-phase elastic strip subjected to an out-of-plane loading. In the unperturbed state, the crack propagates with a constant speed V along the interface. The Dirichlet boundary ...
  • Fallows, R. A.; Asgekar, A.; Bisi, M. M.; Breen, A. R.; ter-Veen, S. (2012-04-01)
    The LOw Frequency ARray (LOFAR) is a next-generation radio telescope which uses thousands of stationary dipoles to observe celestial phenomena. These dipoles are grouped in various ‘stations’ which are centred on the ...
  • Jones, Morgan; Fearn, Stephen; Winter, Rudolf; Yuan, F.; Lennie, A. R.; Parker, J. E.; Thompson, S. P.; Tang, C. C. (2015-04-01)
    Residual and intrinsic strains in granular materials have been studied extensively. However, understanding the dynamic strains that cause these resultant residual strains is key to developing better strain-resistant ...
  • Briones, M. J. I.; Bol, Roland; Sleep, D.; Sampedro, L.; Allen, Debra (1999-06-28)
    Changes in the specific diet of earthworms with time in relation to landuse changes and two different climates were studied by analysing 13C and 15N natural abundance in soils and animals. Soil samples from three depths ...
  • Tiddeman, Bernard Paul; Hunter, David; Perrett, David (2011-09-06)
    In this paper we present a prototype system for altering perceived attributes of faces in video sequences, such as the apparent age, sex or emotional state. The system uses multilinear models to decompose the parameters ...
  • Mishuris, Gennady; Movchan, Alexander B.; Slepyan, Leonid I. (2008-02-01)
    We consider a nontrivial anti-plane shear fracture problem for a double-crack configuration where the remote external load is applied to the extracted mass-spring chain and the displacement field is symmetric with respect ...
  • Morus, I. R. (Oxford University Press, 2008-04-10)
  • Genoni, Marco; Serafini, Alessio; Kim, Myungshik; Burgarth, Daniel Klaus (2012-04-09)
    Controllability - the possibility of performing any target dynamics by applying a set of available operations - is a fundamental requirement for the practical use of any physical system. For finite-dimensional systems, ...
  • Pasemann, Frank; Hülse, Martin; Wischmann, Steffen; Manoonpong, Poramate; von Twickel, Arndt (Springer Nature, 2007-12)
    This case study demonstrates how the synthesis and the analysis of minimal recurrent neural robot control provide insights into the exploration of embodiment. By using structural evolution, minimal recurrent neural networks ...
  • Quang, Vũ Văn (2008)
    In everyday life, we are familiar with glass. Their applications spread from uses such as lenses, prisms, mirrors for optics, windshields for cars and windows for houses, to glass bres for telecommunications. Glass is ...
  • Mishuris, Gennady; Movchan, Alexander B.; Slepyan, Leonid I. (2008-05)
    The paper addresses a problem of partial fracture of a lattice by a propagating fault modelling a crack bridged by elastic fibres. It is assumed that the strength of bonds within the lattice alternates periodically, so ...
  • Mishuris, Gennady; Movchan, A. B.; Bigoni, D. (2012)
    Analysis of propagation of a fault driven by a steadily moving shearing force through a structural interface reveals a channeling effect for the energy release. This effect implies that a steady-state solution for propagation ...
