A spectral pedestrian-based approach for modal identification (2019)
Journal Article
Jesus, A., Živanović, S., & Alani, A. (2020). A spectral pedestrian-based approach for modal identification. Journal of Sound and Vibration, 470, https://doi.org/10.1016/j.jsv.2019.115157

The dynamic behaviour of footbridges is characterised by modal properties such as natural frequencies, mode shapes, damping ratios and modal masses. Their estimation via modal tests often requires expensive or difficult-to-operate equipment (e.g. sha... Read More about A spectral pedestrian-based approach for modal identification.

The European Union's response to the CBRN terrorist threat: A multiple streams approach (2019)
Journal Article
Kaunert, C., & Léonard, S. (in press). The European Union's response to the CBRN terrorist threat: A multiple streams approach. Politique européenne,

This article examines how the European Union (EU) has sought to address the threat of CBRN terrorism using Kingdon's Multiple Streams Framework. It demonstrates that the EU has significantly developed its response to the CBRN terrorist threat, but th...

© 2019 The Royal Society of Chemistry. A novel decentralised Sustainable Refugee Camp Drainage System (SRCDS) has been developed for the effective management of stormwater in the Dadaab refugee camp, Kenya. The SRCDS uses the principle of Best Manage... Read More about Modelling of a sustainable refugee camp drainage system for stormwater management.

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.

Methods of identifying and recruiting older people at risk of social isolation and loneliness: A mixed methods review (2019)
Journal Article
Ige, J., Gibbons, L., Bray, I., & Gray, S. (2019). Methods of identifying and recruiting older people at risk of social isolation and loneliness: A mixed methods review. BMC Medical Research Methodology, 19(1), https://doi.org/10.1186/s12874-019-0825-6

Background Loneliness and social isolation are major determinants of mental wellbeing, especially among older adults. The effectiveness of interventions to address loneliness and social isolation among older adults has been questioned due to the lac...

Prehospital critical care for out-of-hospital cardiac arrest: a complex intervention in a complex environment (2019)
Thesis
Von Vopelius-Feldt, J. Prehospital critical care for out-of-hospital cardiac arrest: a complex intervention in a complex environment. (Thesis). University of the West of England. Retrieved from https://uwe-repository....ribe.com/output/2066576

Background Prehospital critical care has the potential to improve the currently low survival rates following out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA). In some areas of the United Kingdom, prehospital critical care teams are dispatched to OHCA, while in...
