Journal Article
DROUBI, M.G., FOSBROOKE, C., MCCONNACHIE, J. and FAISAL, N.H. 2019. Indentation based strength analysis of adhesively bonded leading-edge composite joints in wind turbine blades. SN applied sciences [online], (accepted). Available from: https://doi.org/10.1007/s42452-019-0735-6

Wind turbine is a source of non-polluting renewable energy. Whether a wind turbine is viable depends entirely on the structural integrity of turbine blade. To assess the structural integrity of wind turbine blades it is necessary to investigate the l...

Diametral compression test method to analyse relative surface stresses in thermally sprayed coated and uncoated circular disc specimens. (2018)
Journal Article
FAISAL, N.H., MANN, L., DUNCAN, C., DUNBAR, E., CLAYTON, M., FROST, M., MCCONNACHIE, J., FARDAN, A. and AHMED, R. 2019. Diametral compression test method to analyse relative surface stresses in thermally sprayed coated and uncoated circular disc specimens. Surface and coatings technology [online], 357, pages 497-514. Available from: https://doi.org/10.1016/j.surfcoat.2018.10.053

In firsts of its investigation, a diametral compression destructive testing method (also known as Brazilian test) was performed on thermally sprayed coated and uncoated circular disc specimens to compare relative surface stresses. The coating investi... Read More about Diametral compression test method to analyse relative surface stresses in thermally sprayed coated and uncoated circular disc specimens..
