Vibrations of the S1 state of fluorobenzene-h5 and fluorobenzene-d5 via resonance-enhanced multiphoton ionization (REMPI) spectroscopy (2014)
Journal Article
multiphoton ionization (REMPI) spectroscopy. Journal of Chemical Physics, 141(24), doi:10.1063/1.4904706. ISSN 0021-9606

We report resonance-enhanced multiphoton ionization spectra of the isotopologues fluorobenzeneh5 and fluorobenzene-d5. By making use of quantum chemical calculations, the changes in the wavenumber of the vibrational modes upon deuteration are examine... Read More

PEGASO: a personalised and motivational ICT system to empower adolescents towards healthy lifestyles (2014)
Journal Article
Carrino, S., Caon, M., Angelini, L., Mugellini, E., Abou Khaled, O., Orte, S., …Rizzo, G. (2014). PEGASO: a personalised and motivational ICT system to empower adolescents towards healthy lifestyles. doi:10.3233/978-1-61499-474-9-350. ISSN 1879-8365

Unhealthy alimentary behaviours and physical inactivity habits are key risk factors for major non communicable diseases. Several researches demonstrate that juvenile obesity can lead to serious medical conditions, pathologies and have important psych... Read More

A potential role for cannabinoid receptors in the therapeutic action of fenofibrate (2014)
Journal Article
Priestley, R. S., Nickolls, S. A., Alexander, S. P. H., & Kendall, D. A. (2015). A potential role for cannabinoid receptors in the therapeutic action of fenofibrate. FASEB Journal, 29(4), 1446-1455. doi:10.1096/fj.14-263053

Cannabinoids are reported to have actions through peroxisome proliferator-activated receptors (PPARs), which led us to investigate PPAR agonists for activity at the cannabinoid receptors. Radio-ligand binding and functional assays were conducted usin... Read More

Distractions during critical phases of anaesthesia for caesarean section: an observational study (2014)
Journal Article
Jenkins, A., Wilkinson, J. V., Akeroyd, M. A., & Broom, M. A. (2015). Distractions during critical phases of anaesthesia for caesarean section: an observational study. Anaesthesia, 70(5), 543-548. doi:10.1111/anae.12979

Aviation's 'sterile cockpit' rule holds that distractions on the flight deck should be kept at a minimum during critical phases of flight. To assess current practice at comparable points during obstetric regional anaesthesia, we measured ambient nois... Read More

Elasto-plastic finite element analysis of titanium metal matrix composite shafts under torsional loading (2014)
Journal Article
Hyde, T. H., Punyong, K., & Becker, A. A. (2015). Elasto-plastic finite element analysis of titanium metal matrix composite shafts under torsional loading. Journal of Strain Analysis for Engineering Design, 50(3), 199-216. doi:10.1177/0309324714560387

Elasto-plastic finite element analyses of titanium metal matrix composite shafts subjected to torsional loading are presented based on a unit cell approach. The analyses cover different volume fractions and different values of the coefficient of fric... Read More

Selective element fission approach for fast FEM simulation of incremental sheet forming based on dual-mesh system (2014)
Journal Article
Zhang, M. H., Lu, B., Chen, J., Long, H., & Ou, H. (2015). Selective element fission approach for fast FEM simulation of incremental sheet forming based on dual-mesh system. International Journal of Advanced Manufacturing Technology, 78(5-8), doi:10.1007/s00170-014-6723-5. ISSN 0268-3768

Incremental sheet forming (ISF) is a highly versatile and flexible process for producing low batches of sheet metal parts. Although finite element (FE) method is a key approach in the study of material deformation in metal forming processes, the appl... Read More

Influence of waxes on adhesion properties of bituminous binders (2014)
Journal Article
Lamperti, R., Grenfell, J., Sangiorgi, C., Lantieri, C., & Airey, G. D. (2015). Influence of waxes on adhesion properties of bituminous binders. Construction and Building Materials, 76, doi:10.1016/j.conbuildmat.2014.11.058. ISSN 0950-0618

The benefits at the base of WMA technologies are well established in the literature. They include the reduction in the energy consumption during the production of mixtures, the reduction in the emissions to the atmosphere in the production plant and... Read More

Relative recency influences object-in-context memory (2014)
Journal Article
Tam, S. K., Bonardi, C., & Robinson, J. (2015). Relative recency influences object-in-context memory. Behavioural Brain Research, 281, doi:10.1016/j.bbr.2014.12.024. ISSN 0166-4328

In two experiments rats received training on an object-in-context (OIC) task, in which they received preexposure to object A in context x, followed by exposure to object B in context y. In a subsequent test both A and B are presented in either contex... Read More
