Optimization of indentification of particle impacts using acoustic emission. (2018)
Thesis
HEDAYETULLAH, A.M. 2018. Optimization of indentification of particle impacts using acoustic emission. Robert Gordon University, PhD thesis.

Air-borne or liquid-laden solid particle transport is a common phenomenon in various industrial applications. Solid particles transported at severe operating conditions such as high-flow velocity can cause concerns for structural integrity, through w...

A novel method of producing microbubbles for targeted drug delivery. (2016)
Thesis
FIABANE, J. 2016. A novel method of producing microbubbles for targeted drug delivery. Robert Gordon University, PhD thesis.

Microbubbles, currently employed in diagnostic ultrasound as a contrast agent, have a potential new application as vehicles for targeted drug delivery, which could revolutionise medicine by eliminating side-effects. A new device is developed which ou... Read More about A novel method of producing microbubbles for targeted drug delivery..

Structure, strength and defect characterisation of cement based materials. (2014)
Thesis
CHOUDHURY, A.H. 2014. Structure, strength and defect characterisation of cement based materials. Robert Gordon University, PhD thesis.

In cement based systems, the residual stresses are created by internal expansion. This provides toughening by the release of the residual stresses as the macro-crack propagates. While circumstantial evidence of the residual stresses exist (e.g. micro... Read More about Structure, strength and defect characterisation of cement based materials..
