Aerodynamic and aeroacoustic analysis of a harmonically morphing airfoil using dynamic meshing (2021)
Journal Article
Abdessemed, C., Bouferrouk, A., & yao, Y. (2021). Aerodynamic and aeroacoustic analysis of a harmonically morphing airfoil using dynamic meshing. Acoustics, 3(1), 177-200. https://doi.org/10.3390/acoustics3010013

This work explores the aerodynamic and aeroacoustic responses of an airfoil fitted with a harmonically morphing Trailing Edge Flap (TEF). An unsteady parametrization method adapted for harmonic morphing is introduced, and then coupled with dynamic me...

Using laminate hybridisation (CFRP-GFRP) and shaped CFRP plies to increase plate post-buckling strain to failure under shear loading (2021)
Journal Article
Damghani, M., Wallis, C., Bakunowicz, J., & Murphy, A. (2021). Using laminate hybridisation (CFRP-GFRP) and shaped CFRP plies to increase plate post-buckling strain to failure under shear loading. Thin-Walled Structures, 162, https://doi.org/10.1016/j.tws.2021.107543

Previous works have established the response and failure behaviour of hybrid (CFRP-GFRP) laminates when subjected to a wide range of destabilising loads. However, to date no works have quantified the influence of selective laminate shapes and hybridi...

The paper presents a methodology enabling the detection of aircraft touchdowns based on data obtained from accelerometers attached to the structural parts of the airframe in the cockpit or passenger compartment. Precise determination of the moment an... Read More about Detection of aircraft touchdown using longitudinal acceleration and continuous wavelet transformation.

Experimental evaluation of residual tensile strength of hybrid composite aerospace materials after low velocity impact (2019)

Dynamic mesh framework for morphing wings CFD (2019)
Thesis
Abdessemed, C. Dynamic mesh framework for morphing wings CFD. (Thesis). University of the West of England. Retrieved from https://uwe-repository.worktribe.com/output/1490739

In this work, a framework to perform high fidelity Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) analysis of dynamically morphing airfoils and wings is presented. An unsteady parametric method to model the deforming motion is proposed and then implemented in a... Read More about Dynamic mesh framework for morphing wings CFD.

Marimo machines: Oscillators, biosensors and actuators (2019)
Journal Article
Phillips, N., Draper, T. C., Mayne, R., & Adamatzky, A. (2019). Marimo machines: Oscillators, biosensors and actuators. Journal of Biological Engineering, 13(1), https://doi.org/10.1186/s13036-019-0200-5

Background The green algae balls (Aegagropila linnaei), known as Marimo, are large spherical colonies of live photosynthetic filaments, formed by rolling water currents in freshwater lakes. Photosynthesis therein produces gas bubbles that can attach... Read More about Marimo machines: Oscillators, biosensors and actuators.
