An empirical approach to river bed degradation.
Degradation in a homogeneous alluvial channel due to complete stoppage of sediment downstream of a high capacity reservoir has been studied empirically. Based on dimensional analysis, a method has been established for ...

The fundamental solution of Mindlin plates with damping in the Laplace domain and its applications
In this paper, a fundamental solution for the Mindlin plate theory with damping is derived in the Laplace transform domain first time. The applications of this fundamental solution are demonstrated by the method of fundamental ...
Characterization and performance of glass-ceramic sealant to join metallic interconnects to YSZ and anode-supported-electrolyte in planar SOFCs
This work describes the design, development and performance of a glass-ceramic sealant used to join the ceramic electrolyte (YSZ wafer and anode-supported-electrolyte (ASE)) to the metallic interconnects (Crofer22 APU and ...
An investigation and evaluation of variable-valve-timing and variable-valve-actuation strategies in a diesel homogeneous charge compression ignition engine using three-dimensional computational fluid dynamics
A three-dimensional computational fluid dynamics modelling was carried out to investigate effects of variable valve timing (VVT) and variable valve actuation (WA) on gas exchange and fuel-air mixing processes in a diesel ...
Detection scheme for space-time block codes wireless communications without channel state information
In this paper, the new detection scheme proposed by Tarokh and Alamouti is investigated and expanded to two schemes of two transmit two receive antennas and four transmit one receive antennas. Previously, Tarokh and Alamouti, ...
Enhancement of multimodal biometric segregation using unconstrained cohort normalisation
This paper presents an investigation into the effects, on the accuracy of multimodal biometrics, of introducing unconstrained cohort normalisation (UCN) into the score-level fusion process. Whilst score normalisation has ...
Evaluation of quality and behaviour of self-piercing riveted aluminium to high strength low alloy sheets with different surface coatings
A study examining the effect of coatings on the quality and behaviour of self-piercing riveted joints between aluminium and steel sheets was conducted. NG5754 and AA5182 aluminium and high strength low alloy (HSLA) steel ...
A test of the effectiveness of speaker verification for differentiating between identical twins.
This paper presents investigations into the ability of speaker verification technology to discriminate between identical twins. It is shown that whilst, in general, the genetic and non-genetic characteristics of voice are ...
