X ray fluorescence and X ray diffraction studies of airborne toxic metal particulates in the field of occupational hygiene.Withers, E. (1984)This study investigates the use of X-ray analytical techniques in the field of occupational hygiene. It concentrates on the analysis of toxic metal particulates collected on filters in the working environment inside factories. Chapter 1 looks at the background to this work, including the basic principles of occupational hygiene and its importance in modern industrial processes. The Factory Inspectorate is introduced as the main enforcing body for work-related legislation. Chapter 2 deals with...Kaeding, Malte (2017)Doran, Conrad J. (1993)A technique is developed whereby Silicon Carbide whiskers may be incorporated uniformly into epoxy resin using an ethanol transport medium. Volume fractions up to 10% are achieved. The mechanical properties of the whisker loaded resin are studied using uniaxial tensile coupons and compact tension test methods. With increasing fraction of whisker, the tensile modulus, tensile strength and fracture toughness are all found to increase significantly. A method for producing hybrid E-glass fibre/ep...
Audio Description from a discourse perspective: a socially relevant framework for research and trainingBraun, S (2007)The topic of this paper is Audio Description (AD) for blind and partially sighted people. I will outline a discourse-based approach to AD focussing on the role of mental modelling, local and global coherence, and different types of inferences (explicatures and implicatures). Applying these concepts to AD, I will discuss initial insights and outline questions for empirical research. My main aim is to show that a discourse-based approach to AD can provide an informed framework for research, tra...Makepeace, David; Fortini, Andrea; Markov, A; Locatelli, P; Lindsay, C; Moorhouse, S; Lind, R; Sear, Richard; Keddie, Joseph (2017)When films are deposited from mixtures of colloidal particles of two different sizes, a diverse range of functional structures can result. One structure of particular interest is a stratified film in which the top surface layer has a composition different than in the interior. Here, we explore the conditions under which a stratified layer of small particles develops spontaneously in a colloidal film that is cast from a binary mixture of small and large polymer particles that are suspended in ...
