Heterogeneous data fusion for the improved non-destructive detection of steel-reinforcement defects using echo state networks (2022)
Journal Article

The degradation of roads is an expensive problem: in the UK alone, £27 billion was spent on road repairs between 2013 and 2019. One potential cost-saver is the early, non-destructive detection of faults. There are many available techniques, each with...

Axisymmetric necking versus Treloar–Kearsley instability in a hyperelastic sheet under equibiaxial stretching (2022)
Journal Article

We consider bifurcations from the homogeneous solution of a circular or square hyperelastic sheet that is subjected to equibiaxial stretching under either force- or displacement-controlled edge conditions. We derive the condition for axisymmetric nec... Read More about Axisymmetric necking versus Treloar–Kearsley instability in a hyperelastic sheet under equibiaxial stretching.

Computer Simulation of the Incorporation of V2+, V3+, V4+, V(5+)and Mo3+, Mo4+, Mo5+, Mo(6+)Dopants in LiNbO3 (2020)
Journal Article

The doping of LiNbO(3)with V2+, V3+, V(4+)and V(5+)as well as Mo3+, Mo4+, Mo(5+)and Mo(6+)ions is of interest in enhancing its photorefractive properties. In this paper, possible incorporation mechanisms for these ions in LiNbO(3)are modelled, using...

A Decade On, How Has the Visibility of Energy Changed? Energy Feedback Perceptions from UK Focus Groups (2020)
Journal Article

The Smart Meter Rollout Programme in the UK has required energy suppliers to offer new smart meters to customers to provide near real-time energy use information and enable two-way communication between the meter and the central system. The provision... Read More about A Decade On, How Has the Visibility of Energy Changed? Energy Feedback Perceptions from UK Focus Groups.

Evaluating the Usability of an e-Learning Platform within Higher Education from a Student Perspective (2019)
Presentation / Conference

With the advancement in information technologies, e-learning has become an integral part of the modern higher education system. As part of this progression, Universities have increasingly adopted Virtual Learning Environments (VLE) that enable learne...

Meta-analysis for families of experiments in software engineering: a systematic review and reproducibility and validity assessment (2019)
Journal Article

Context Previous studies have raised concerns about the analysis and meta-analysis of crossover experiments and we were aware of several families of experiments that used crossover designs and meta-analysis. Objective To identify families of exp... Read More about Meta-analysis for families of experiments in software engineering: a systematic review and reproducibility and validity assessment.

Reproducibility of Studies on Text Mining for Citation Screening in Systematic Reviews: Evaluation and Checklist (2018)
Journal Article

CONTEXT: Independent validation of published scientific results through study replication is a pre-condition for accepting the validity of such results. In computation research, full replication is often unrealistic for independent results validatio...
