Virtual sensors for active noise control in acoustic–structural coupled enclosures using structural sensing: robust virtual sensor design (2011)
Journal Article
Halim, D., Cheng, L., & Su, Z. (2011). Virtual sensors for active noise control in acoustic–structural coupled enclosures using structural sensing: robust virtual sensor design. Journal of the Acoustical Society of America, 129(3), doi:10.1121/1.3531941

The work was aimed to develop a robust virtual sensing design methodology for sensing and active control applications of vibro-acoustic systems. The proposed virtual sensor was designed to estimate a broadband acoustic interior sound pressure using s...

Participation in export markets and the role of R&D: establishment-level evidence from the UK Community Innovation Survey 2005 (2010)
Journal Article
Harris, R., & Li, Q. C. (2010). Participation in export markets and the role of R&D: establishment-level evidence from the UK Community Innovation Survey 2005. Applied Economics, 43(23), doi:10.1080/00036840903427190

There is a strong expectation in the literature that exporting and innovation activities (particularly R&D) are strongly related, and that the need to be innovative is increasing over time due to globalization. In this study, we find that R&D is endo... Read More about Participation in export markets and the role of R&D: establishment-level evidence from the UK Community Innovation Survey 2005.
