Structural and residual strength analysis of metal-to-metal adhesively bonded joints. (2019)
Thesis
PRATHURU, A. 2019. Structural and residual strength analysis of metal-to-metal adhesively bonded joints. Robert Gordon University [online], PhD thesis. Available from: https://openair.rgu.ac.uk

The aim of this study is to propose a new simulation/experimental methodology to assess the residual strength of defective adhesive bonds. This incorporates defect detection in adhesive bonds and quantification of the effect of these defects on the a...

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 resilience engineering approach to safety excellence in the maintenance of oil and gas assets. (2016)
Thesis
AMEZIANE, S. 2016. A resilience engineering approach to safety excellence in the maintenance of oil and gas assets. Robert Gordon University, PhD thesis.

The established approach to safety management has failed to handle socio-technical systems that have become more complex. The main argument is this approach is based on assumptions that systems are protected against accidents by barriers (well-traine...

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..

Modeling multiphase solid transport velocity in long subsea tiebacks: numerical and experimental methods. (2013)
Thesis
BELLO, K.O. 2013. Modeling multiphase solid transport velocity in long subsea tiebacks: numerical and experimental methods. Robert Gordon University, PhD thesis.

Transportation of unprocessed multiphase reservoir fluids from deep/ultra-deep offshore through a long subsea tieback/pipeline is inevitable. This form of transportation is complex and requires accurate knowledge of critical transport velocity, flow...
