In this investigation green Robusta coffee beans were pre-soaked with different time-temperature profiles before roasting in normal conditions and grinding to a standardized particle size. Aroma profile of roasted coffee beans and water soluble precu... Read More

Enhancing supervised classifications with metamorphic relations (2018)
Conference Proceeding
Xu, L., Towey, D., French, A. P., Benford, S., Zhou, Z. Q., & Chen, T. Y. (2018). Enhancing supervised classifications with metamorphic relations. In MET '18: Proceedings of the 3rd International Workshop on Metamorphic Testing, 46-53. doi:10.1145/3193977.3193978

We report on a novel use of metamorphic relations (MRs) in machine learning: instead of conducting metamorphic testing, we use MRs for the augmentation of the machine learning algorithms themselves. In particular, we report on how MRs can enable enha... Read More

‘I like the “outernet” stuff:’ girls’ perspectives on physical activity and their environments (2018)
Journal Article
Coen, S. E., Mitchell, C. A., Tillmann, S., & Gilliland, J. A. (2018). ‘I like the “outernet” stuff:’ girls’ perspectives on physical activity and their environments. Qualitative Research in Sport, Exercise and Health, 1-19. doi:10.1080/2159676x.2018.1561500

Physical activity in Canada mirrors the gender gap observed globally, with boys more likely than girls to meet recommended guidelines. While a growing body of research has examined the relationships between environmental factors and children’s physic... Read More

'Frontier Climbing' in the Wild, Wild East (2018)
Book Chapter
Bott, E. (2018). 'Frontier Climbing' in the Wild, Wild East. In H. Saul, & E. Waterton (Eds.), Affective Geographies of Transformation, Exploration and Adventure: Rethinking FrontiersTaylor & Francis

This chapter explores certain tensions in the often contradictory and always subjective notions of 'adventures' and 'frontiers' in overlapping dimensions through the context of rock-climbing tourism in Li Ming in remote southern China. It also explor... Read More

Can flavour enhancement modulate appetite and food intake in women? (2018)
Conference Proceeding
Yin, W., Fisk, I., Hewson, L., Linforth, R., & Taylor, M. (2018). Can flavour enhancement modulate appetite and food intake in women?. In Flavour Science: Proceedings of the XV Weurman Flavour Research Symposium, 269-274. doi:10.3217/978-3-85125-593-5-57

Food flavour might be helpful for weight management by regulating appetite sensation and food intake. This chapter investigated whether the enhancement of flavour intensity or flavour complexity can modulate appetite sensation and food intake within... Read More

Explicit-in-time goal-oriented adaptivity (2018)
Journal Article
Muñoz-Matute, J., Calo, V. M., Pardo, D., Alberdi, E., & Van Der Zee, K. (2019). Explicit-in-time goal-oriented adaptivity. Computer Methods in Applied Mechanics and Engineering, doi:10.1016/j.cma.2018.12.028

Goal-oriented adaptivity is a powerful tool to accurately approximate physically relevant solution features for Partial Differential Equations. In time dependent problems, we seek to represent the error in the quantity of interest as an integral over... Read More

With the increasing demands for large scale and high productivity, polymer pipes are recently produced using the advanced spiral mandrel dies. However, the fundamental research related to polymer melt flow mechanism in the spiral mandrel die for pipe... Read More

A probabilistic approach for trade-off analysis of composite wing structures at the conceptual phase of design (2018)
Conference Proceeding
Bacharoudis, K., Turner, T., Popov, A., & Ratchev, S. (2019). A probabilistic approach for trade-off analysis of composite wing structures at the conceptual phase of design. In S. Ratchev (Ed.), Precision Assembly in the Digital Age, 103-113. doi:10.1007/978-3-030-05931-6_10

One of the major elements when performing a design for manufacturing and assembly methodology is the cost modelling method. A probabilistic cost approach is introduced herein for the series production of a composite wing structure. The proposed metho... Read More

Deployment of a distributed multi-agent architecture for transformable assembly (2018)
Conference Proceeding

Industry 4.0 represents a new philosophy in manufacturing systems, based on networked, intelligent, and cooperative resources. This revolution is necessary to make the cost-effective production of batch-size-of-one customised items in high-value manu... Read More

Delivering an intervention to a young person minimising his harmful sexual behaviour: a practice case study (2018)
Journal Article
Hatton, V. A., & Duff, S. (2018). Delivering an intervention to a young person minimising his harmful sexual behaviour: a practice case study. Journal of Sexual Aggression, doi:10.1080/13552600.2018.1551499

Young perpetrators of harmful sexual behaviour (HSB) often minimise the severity of their offending. Whilst there have been mixed findings, the most recent literature suggests offence-specific minimisation increases the risk of sexual recidivism in h... Read More
