Journal Article
Al-Timimy, A., Giangrande, P., Degano, M., Zeyuan, X., Galea, M., Gerada, C., …Xia, L. (in press). Design and losses analysis of a high power density machine for flooded pump applications. IEEE Transactions on Industry Applications, doi:10.1109/TIA.2018.2821623. ISSN 0093-9994

This paper describes the design process of a 10 kW 19000 rpm high power density surface mounted permanent magnet synchronous machine for a directly coupled pump application. In order to meet the required specifications, a compact machine, with coolin... Read More

Influence of rotor endcaps on the electromagnetic performance of high speed PM machine (2018)
Journal Article
Al-Timimy, A., Alani, M., Degano, M., Giangrande, P., Galea, M., & Gerada, C. (2018). Influence of rotor endcaps on the electromagnetic performance of high speed PM machine. IET Electric Power Applications, 12(8), (1142–1149). doi:10.1049/iet-epa.2017.0811. ISSN 1751-8660

Surface-mounted permanent magnet (SPM) machines are preferred for high-speed aerospace applications over induction and switched reluctance machines, since they combine the advantages of high torque density and efficiency. Also, in aerospace applicati... Read More

Bioprinting using mechanically robust core-shell cell-laden hydrogel strands (2017)
Journal Article
Mistry, P., Aied, A., Alexander, M. R., Shakesheff, K., Bennett, A., & Yang, J. (in press). Bioprinting using mechanically robust core-shell cell-laden hydrogel strands. Macromolecular Bioscience, doi:10.1002/mabi.201600472. ISSN 1616-5187

The strand material in extrusion-based bioprinting determines the microenvironments of the embedded cells and the initial mechanical properties of the constructs. One unmet challenge is the combination of optimal biological and mechanical properties... Read More

Kinetic study of time-dependent fixation of UVI on biochar (2016)
Journal Article
Ashry, A., Bailey, E. H., Chenery, S., & Young, S. D. (2016). Kinetic study of time-dependent fixation of UVI on biochar. Journal of Hazardous Materials, 320, doi:10.1016/j.jhazmat.2016.08.002. ISSN 0304-3894

Biochar, a by-product from the production of biofuel and syngas by gasification, was tested as a material for adsorption and fixation of UVI from aqueous solutions. A batch experiment was conducted to study the factors that influence the adsorption a... Read More
