This paper presents a study of stress states in two-dimensional models of metal-to-metal adhesively bonded joints subjected to 4-point flexural loading using finite element (FE) method. The FE simulations were carried out on adhesive bonded joints of...

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..
