Disease Activity Flares and Pain Flares in an early rheumatoid arthritis inception cohort; characteristics, antecedants and sequelae (2019)
Presentation / Conference
McWilliams, D., Rahman, S., James, R., Ferguson, E., Kiely, P., Young, A., & Walsh, D. (2019, April). Disease Activity Flares and Pain Flares in an early rheumatoid arthritis inception cohort; characteristics, antecedants and sequelae. Poster presented at Rheumatology 2019

Background RA flares are common and disabling. They are described in terms of worsening pain, swelling, or other symptoms. We aimed to determine characteristics, antecedants and sequelae of painful and inflammatory flare subtypes during the first 11... Read More

This paper aims to show and classify the various types of energy harvesting technologies, and find out the potential pros and cons from the existing energy harvesting techniques with different applications. There are many energy-harvesting systems di... Read More

Community Energy Networks in the Making: Project SCENe, Nottingham (2018)
Presentation / Conference
Rodrigues, L., Gillott, M., Waldron, J. A., Cameron, L., Tubelo, R., & Shipman, R. (2018, December). Community Energy Networks in the Making: Project SCENe, Nottingham. Paper presented at PLEA 2018 : Smart and Healthy within the 2-degree Limit, Hong Kong, China

‘Community Energy’ refers to people working together to reduce and manage energy use, and increase and support local energy generation. It can help promote the infrastructural, social and cultural changes we need to reduce the impact of climate chang... Read More

A multi valued emotion lexicon created and evaluated by the crowd (2018)
Presentation / Conference
Haralabopoulos, G., Wagner, C., McAuley, D., & Simperl, E. (2018, October). A multi valued emotion lexicon created and evaluated by the crowd. Paper presented at Fifth International Conference on Social Networks Analysis, Management and Security (SNAMS-2018)

Sentiment analysis aims to uncover emotions conveyed through information. In its simplest form, it is performed on a polarity basis, where the goal is to classify information with positive or negative emotion. Recent research has explored more nuance... Read More

Computationally-efficient aeroelastic analysis tool for short-wing/propeller configuration on compound helicopters (2018)
Presentation / Conference
Wang, Z., & Popov, A. A. (2018, September). Computationally-efficient aeroelastic analysis tool for short-wing/propeller configuration on compound helicopters. Paper presented at International Conference on Noise and Vibration Engineering (ISMA-USD 2018), Leuven, Belgium

A time-domain aeroelastic analysis for short-wing/propeller configuration in compound helicopters is presented in this paper. A linear Timoshenko beam is used in conjunction with analytical aerodynamic theories, while propeller effects are simplified... Read More

A methodology for railway track maintenance modelling using Plausible Petri nets (2018)
Presentation / Conference
Chiachio, M., Chiachio, J., Prescott, D., & Andrews, J. (2018, September). A methodology for railway track maintenance modelling using Plausible Petri nets. Paper presented at Probabilistic Safety Assessment and Management PSAM 14, Los Angeles, USA

This paper proposes a new mathematical methodology to model expert systems with the ability to sequentially learn from data. To this end, the Plausible Petri nets (PPNs) methodology, first developed in M. Chiachío et al. [Proceedings of the Future Te... Read More
