Finding the creatures of habit: clustering households based on their flexibility in using electricity (2012)
Conference Proceeding
Dent, I., Craig, T., Aickelin, U., & Rodden, T. (2012). Finding the creatures of habit: clustering households based on their flexibility in using electricity

Changes in the UK electricity market, particularly with the roll out of smart meters, will provide greatly increased opportunities for initiatives intended to change households' electricity usage patterns for the benefit of the overall system. Users... Read More

Approaches to movement therapy and their relevance to the design of interactive systems to support rehabilitation (2012)
Conference Proceeding
Rennick-Egglestone, S. (2012). Approaches to movement therapy and their relevance to the design of interactive systems to support rehabilitation

Stroke is a major cause of physical disability for those that survive it. Traditionally, treatment of disability involves interaction with professional trained in the movement therapies. However, there is a growing body of research into interactive s... Read More

Investigating the feasibility of using asphalt pavements as a source of heating (2012)
Conference Proceeding
Dehdezi, P. K., Dawson, A. R., Hall, M. R., Casey, S., & Miao, F. (2012). Investigating the feasibility of using asphalt pavements as a source of heating

This paper evaluates the feasibility of using asphalt pavements as solar energy collectors with copper pipes embedded below the surfaces. Quartzite was investigated as a replacement for limestone aggregate in asphalt for thermal enhancement. Samples... Read More

Advanced geometry modelling of 3D woven reinforcements in polymer composites: processing and performance analysis (2012)
Conference Proceeding
Zeng, X., Brown, L. P., Endruweit, A., & Long, A. C. (2012). Advanced geometry modelling of 3D woven reinforcements in polymer composites: processing and performance analysis

Numerical methods have become increasingly effective tools for analysis and design of composite materials. This study investigates how the inclusion of geometrical variations in modelling 3D woven fabrics affects the accuracy of numerical predictions... Read More

Flexible and dynamic network coding for adaptive data transmission in DTNs (2012)
Conference Proceeding
Radenkovic, M., Zakhary, S., Radenkovic, M., & Zakhary, S. (2012). Flexible and dynamic network coding for adaptive data transmission in DTNs. In Wireless Communications and Mobile Computing Conference (IWCMC), 8th International, 567--573. doi:10.1109/IWCMC.2012.6314266

Existing network coding approaches for Delay-Tolerant Networks (DTNs) do not detect and adapt to congestion in the network. In this paper we describe CafNC (Congestion aware forwarding with Network Coding) that combines adaptive network coding and a... Read More

A survey of workforce scheduling and routing (2012)
Conference Proceeding
Castillo-Salazar, A., Landa-Silva, D., & Qu, R. (2012). A survey of workforce scheduling and routing

In the context of workforce scheduling, there are many scenarios in which personnel must carry out tasks at different locations hence requiring some form of transportation. Examples of these type of scenarios include nurses visiting patients at home,... Read More

Evolutionary local search for solving the office space allocation problem (2012)
Conference Proceeding
Ulker, O., & Landa-Silva, D. (2012). Evolutionary local search for solving the office space allocation problem

Office Space Allocation (OSA) is the task of correctly allocating the spatial resources of an institution to a set of entities by minimising the wastage of space and the violation of additional constraints. In this paper, an evolutionary local search... Read More

Achieving the desired transformer leakage inductance necessary in DC-DC converters for energy storage applications (2012)
Conference Proceeding
De, D., Klumpner, C., Rashed, M., Patel, C., Kulsangcharoen, P., & Asher, G. (2012). Achieving the desired transformer leakage inductance necessary in DC-DC converters for energy storage applications. In 6th IET International Conference on Power Electronics, Machines and Drives (PEMD 2012)doi:10.1049/cp.2012.0212

This paper presents a cost effective winding design and evaluation of a medium frequency isolation transformer typically used in bidirectional isolated DC/DC converters. Since leakage inductance and winding resistance of a high frequency transformer... Read More

Towards modular compilers for effects (2012)
Conference Proceeding
Day, L., & Hutton, G. (2012). Towards modular compilers for effects

Compilers are traditionally factorised into a number of separate phases, such as parsing, type checking, code generation, etc. However, there is another potential factorisation that has received comparatively little attention: the treatment of separa... Read More

Modeling the re-anchoring of a ruptured tendon in bonded post-tensioned concrete (2012)
Conference Proceeding
Abdelatif, A. O., Owen, J. S., & Hussein, M. F. (2012). Modeling the re-anchoring of a ruptured tendon in bonded post-tensioned concrete

: In this study, a theoretical model is deve loped to simulate the re-anchorage of a ruptured bonded post-tensioning tendon. This includes estimating the re-anchorage length and stress distribution over the tendon. The model accounts for equilibr... Read More

Extending a microsimulation of the Port of Dover (2012)
Conference Proceeding
Roadknight, C., & Aickelin, U. (2012). Extending a microsimulation of the Port of Dover

Modelling and simulating the traffic of heavily used but secure environments such as seaports and airports is of increasing importance. This paper discusses issues and problems that may arise when extending an existing microsimulation strategy. This... Read More

Roman portraiture and biometric identification (2012)
Conference Proceeding
Schofield, D., Lorenz, K., Davy-Jow, S., & Anderson, M. (2012). Roman portraiture and biometric identification

This project utilised three-dimensional scanning technology in the study of ancient Roman art and archaeology: Roman representations of faces executed in marble. In the cultural heritage sector, three-dimensional (3D) scanning finds its primary ap... Read More

An investigation into the relationship between type-2 FOU size and environmental uncertainty in robotic control (2012)
Conference Proceeding
Benatar, N., Aickelin, U., & Garibaldi, J. M. (2012). An investigation into the relationship between type-2 FOU size and environmental uncertainty in robotic control

It has often been suggested that when faced with large amount of uncertainty in situations of automated control type-2 fuzzy logic based controllers will out perform the simpler type-1 varieties due to the latter lacking a mechanism to model this un... Read More
