A reconsideration of electrostatically accelerated and confined nuclear fusion for space applications. (2010)
Journal Article
MACLEOD, C. and GOW, K.S. 2010. A reconsideration of electrostatically accelerated and confined nuclear fusion for space applications. Journal of the British Interplanetary Society [online], 63(5/6), pages 192-205. Available from: http://jbis.org.uk/paper.php?p=2010.63.192

Most present-day research into Nuclear Fusion concentrates on high-temperature plasmas combined with Inertial or Magnetic Confinement. However, there exists another body of less well-known work based on Electrostatic Acceleration and Confinement. The...

Some practical aspects of electromagnetic activation. (2010)
Journal Article
MACLEOD, C., GOW, K.S. and CAPANNI, N. 2009. Some practical aspects of electromagnetic activation. Journal of the British Interplanetary Society [online], 62(9), pages 320-331. Available from: http://jbis.org.uk/paper.php?p=2009.62.320

Electromagnetic Activation (EMA) is an alternative to combustion in Scramjet-like hypersonic engines. The basis of the system was outlined in previous publications. This paper builds on these results and explores some further practical and theoretica... Read More about Some practical aspects of electromagnetic activation..

Low velocity impact behaviour of glass filled fiber-reinforced thermoplastic engine components. (2010)
Journal Article
MOUTI, Z., WESTWOOD, K., KAYVANTASH, K. and NJUGUNA, J. 2010. Low velocity impact behaviour of glass filled fiber-reinforced thermoplastic engine components. Materials [online], 3(4), pages 2463-2473. Available from: https://doi.org/10.3390/ma3042463

This paper concerns automotive parts located underneath the engine and in particular the engine oil pan. Classically made of stamped steel or cast aluminum, new developments have allowed the manufacture oil pans with polyamide 66 reinforced by 35% we...

Artificial biochemical networks: a different connectionist paradigm. (2010)
Journal Article
MACLEOD, C. and CAPANNI, N.F. 2010. Artificial biochemical networks: a different connectionist paradigm. Artificial intelligence review [online], 33(1-2), pages 123-134. Available from: https://doi.org/10.1007/s10462-009-9149-y

Connectionist models are usually based on Artificial Neural Networks. However, there is another route towards Parallel Distributed Processing. This is by considering the origins of the intelligence displayed by the single celled organisms known as Pr... Read More about Artificial biochemical networks: a different connectionist paradigm..
