The development of novel fuel dehydrating icing inhibitors (2015)
Thesis
Repetto, S. L. The development of novel fuel dehydrating icing inhibitors. (Thesis). University of the West of England. Retrieved from https://uwe-repository.worktribe.com/output/7512199

Dissolved water is a normal component of jet fuel which is vapourised during combustion; however, free water is a contaminant that can starve engines, freeze to form ice crystals capable of blocking fuel feeds, support microbial growth, and contribut...

A new design of membraneless microbial fuel cell: Anode and cathode share the same self-stratified electrolyte of urine (2015)
Conference Proceeding
Walter, X., Gajda, I., Forbes, S., Greenman, J., & Ieropoulos, I. (2015). A new design of membraneless microbial fuel cell: Anode and cathode share the same self-stratified electrolyte of urine. In M. Chianella, C. Barchiesi, & V. Cigolotti (Eds.), Proceedings of the 6th European Fuel Cell - Piero Lunghi Conference, EFC 2015. , (315-316)

Regardless of architecture, microbial fuel cell technology requires a plurality of units to achieve exploitable electrical power. This implies that each unit needs a simple design allowing the production of the needed multiplicity. Here, we present a...

Electricity and catholyte production from ceramic MFCS treating urine (2015)
Conference Proceeding
Merino-Jimenez, I., Greenman, J., & Ieropoulos, I. (2015). Electricity and catholyte production from ceramic MFCS treating urine. In V. Cigolotti, M. Chianella, & C. Barchiesi (Eds.), Proceedings of the 6th European Fuel Cell - Piero Lunghi Conference, EFC 2015. , (311-312)

Microbial fuel cells (MFCs) offer a promising technology for electricity production. In the anodic chamber, an anaerobic biofilm breaks down the organic compounds present in the urine to generate electricity. In the cathodic chamber, the oxygen reduc...

Waste metal for improving concrete performance and utilisation as an alternative of reinforcement bar (2015)
Journal Article
Qureshi, T., & Ahmed, M. (2015). Waste metal for improving concrete performance and utilisation as an alternative of reinforcement bar. Other Education, 5(2), 97-103

Waste material disposal is considered as a difficult issue to adopt in current world. Waste metal, which has been recognised as a major problem in the environment and resource deficiency, could have important implications in the concrete construction...

Influence of expansive minerals on the self-healing of cement paste and mortar systems (2015)
Conference Proceeding
Qureshi, T., & Al-Tabbaa, A. (2015). Influence of expansive minerals on the self-healing of cement paste and mortar systems. In Fifth International Conference of Self-healing Materials, Durham, NC (U.S.A.)

Expansive minerals have great prospects for improving the self-healing capacity of concrete. Once a crack start propagating, an embedded unhydrated expansive mineral could hydrate and expand hence bridging and healing the cracks. This study investiga...

A guide to fully homomorphic encryption (2015)
Journal Article
Armknecht, F., Boyd, C., Carr, C., Gjøsteen, K., Jäschke, A., Reuter, C. A., & Strand, M. (2015). A guide to fully homomorphic encryption. IACR Cryptology ePrint Archive, 2015, 1192

Fully homomorphic encryption (FHE) has been dubbed the holy grail of cryptography, an elusive goal which could solve the IT world’s problems of security and trust. Research in the area exploded after 2009 when Craig Gentry showed that FHE can be real... Read More about A guide to fully homomorphic encryption.

Eco-case based reasoning (Eco-CBR) for supporting sustainable product design (2015)
Conference Proceeding
Romli, A., Setchi, R., Soe, S., & Prickett, P. (2015). Eco-case based reasoning (Eco-CBR) for supporting sustainable product design. In SDM'2015: 2nd International Conference on Sustainable Design and Manufacturing, 145-158

A major challenge for any manufacturer is including aspects of sustainable development in product design. These are related to the social, environmental and economic impacts of the proposed product. This paper proposes the development of an eco- case... Read More about Eco-case based reasoning (Eco-CBR) for supporting sustainable product design.
