Welcome to Repository@Nottingham

The Repository@Nottingham is intended to be an Open Access showcase for the published research output of the university. Whenever possible, refereed documents accepted for publication, or finished artistic compositions presented in public, will be made available here in full digital format, and hyperlinks to standard published versions will be provided.



Latest Research Outputs

Plausible petri nets as self-adaptive expert systems: a tool for infrastructure asset monitoring (2018)
Journal Article
Chiachío, M., Chiachío, J., Prescott, D., & Andrews, J. (in press). Plausible petri nets as self-adaptive expert systems: a tool for infrastructure asset monitoring. Computer-Aided Civil and Infrastructure Engineering,

This paper provides a computational framework to model self-adaptive expert systems using the Petri net (PN) formalism. Self-adaptive expert systems are understood here as expert systems with the ability to autonomously learn from external inputs, li... Read More

Comparative study of praseodymium additives in active selenide chalcogenide optical fibers (2018)
Journal Article
Tang, Z., Sojka, L., Furniss, D., Nunes, J., Sakr, H., Barney, E., …Seddon, A. B. (in press). Comparative study of praseodymium additives in active selenide chalcogenide optical fibers. Optical Materials Express,

The choice of rare earth additive when doping chalcogenide glasses can affect their mid-infrared fiber performance. Three praseodymium additives, Pr-foil, PrCl3 and PrI3 are investigated in Ge-As-Ga-Se fibers. All the fibers are X-ray amorphous and t... Read More

Integrated Object-Based Image Analysis for semi-automated geological lineament detection in Southwest England (2018)
Journal Article
Yeomans, C. M., Middleton, M., Shail, R. K., Grebby, S., & Lusty, P. A. (2018). Integrated Object-Based Image Analysis for semi-automated geological lineament detection in Southwest England. Computers and Geosciences, doi:10.1016/j.cageo.2018.11.005

Regional lineament detection for mapping of geological structure can provide crucial information for mineral exploration. Manual methods of lineament detection are time consuming, subjective and unreliable. The use of semi-automated methods reduces t... Read More

Atomistic details of chymotrypsin conformational changes upon adsorption on silica (2018)
Journal Article
Hildebrand, N., Michaelis, M., Wurzler, N., Li, Z., Hirst, J. D., Micsonai, A., …Ciacchi, L. C. (2018). Atomistic details of chymotrypsin conformational changes upon adsorption on silica. ACS Biomaterials Science and Engineering, doi:10.1021/acsbiomaterials.8b00819

Adsorption of enzymes on solid surfaces may lead to conformational changes that reduce their catalytic conversion activity and are thus detrimental to the efficiency of biotechnology or biosensing applications. This work is a joint theoretical and expe... Read More
