Research and Realization of High-Power Medium-Voltage Active Rectifier Concepts for Future Hybrid-Electric Aircraft Generation (2020)
Journal Article

In this article, we describe the research and development of a 3 kV active rectifier for a 4 MW aerospace generator drive system demonstrator. The converter is fed by a multiphase high-speed/high-frequency permanent magnet generator. The main aim of...

Development of high performance recycled carbon fibre composites with an advanced hydrodynamic fibre alignment process (2020)
Journal Article

Carbon fibre composites have great potential for vehicle lightweighting but the high cost and environmental impact of their production tends to largely undermine the advantages in nonaerospace applications. Recycled fibre has the potential to signifi... Read More about Development of high performance recycled carbon fibre composites with an advanced hydrodynamic fibre alignment process.

From aviation to aviation: Environmental and financial viability of closed-loop recycling of carbon fibre composite (2020)
Journal Article

© 2020 By 2050, the aviation sector is expected to generate about 500,000 tonnes of accumulated carbon fibre reinforced plastic waste from the production and end-of-life phase. In this study, aircraft interior applications of recycled carbon fibre (r...

Fluid flow and heat transfer analysis of TEFC machine end regions using more realistic end-winding geometry (2019)
Journal Article

Here, a typical small low-voltage totally enclosed fan-cooled (TEFC) motor (output power ∼10 kW) has been studied using computational fluid dynamics. The complexity of the end-winding geometries, often consisting of several insulated copper strands b...

The influence of non-ionic surfactants on electrosynthesis in extended channel, narrow gap electrolysis cells (2019)
Journal Article

It is demonstrated that the addition of a non-ionic surfactant (Triton X-100 or Brij L23) to the electrolyte medium leads to a significant improvement to the current efficiency for the methoxylation of N-formylpyrrolidine in a flow electrolysis cell...

Comparing life cycle energy and global warming potential of carbon fibre composite recycling technologies and waste management options (2018)
Journal Article

Carbon fibre reinforced polymers (CFRP) are used in increasing quantities as they have some of the best properties in terms of specific strength and stiffness of any widely available material. By 2020, annual global CFRP production is expected to be...

Fluid flow and heat transfer analysis of TEFC machine end regions using more realistic end-winding geometry (2018)
Conference Proceeding

In this paper a typical small low voltage TEFC motor (output power ~10 kW) has been studied using computational fluid dynamics. The complexity of the end winding geometries, often consisting of several insulated copper strands bound together, provide...

Continuous Photo-Oxidation in a Vortex Reactor: Efficient Operations Using Air Drawn from the Laboratory (2017)
Journal Article

© 2017 American Chemical Society. We report the construction and use of a vortex reactor which uses a rapidly rotating cylinder to generate Taylor vortices for continuous flow thermal and photochemical reactions. The reactor is designed to operate un... Read More about Continuous Photo-Oxidation in a Vortex Reactor: Efficient Operations Using Air Drawn from the Laboratory.
