Welcome to Edinburgh Napier Research Repository

The ‘Research Repository’ is the open access institutional repository of Edinburgh Napier University. It contains examples of research outputs produced by staff and research students, as well as related information about the university's funded projects and staff research interests.

Whenever possible, refereed documents accepted for publication, or finished artistic compositions presented in public, will be made available here in full digital format, and hyperlinks to standard published versions will be provided. Any questions about submissions to the repository or problems with access to any of its content should be sent to the Repository Team at repository@napier.ac.uk

Mechanical behavior and constitutive model of sustainable concrete: seawater and sea-sand recycled aggregate concrete (2022)
Journal Article
Feng, W., Tang, Y., Yang, Y., Cheng, Y., Qiu, J., Zhang, H., …Namdar, A. (in press). Mechanical behavior and constitutive model of sustainable concrete: seawater and sea-sand recycled aggregate concrete. Construction and Building Materials,

Resources such as fresh water and river sand have become scarce in some areas around the world because of the considerable increase in infrastructural construction. To overcome this issue, the utilization of recycled aggregates (RAs) in concrete is c...

An Efficient Localization and Avoidance Method of Jammers in Vehicular Ad hoc Networks (2022)
Journal Article
Almomani, I., Ahmad, M., Kosmanos, D., Alkhayer, A., & Maglaras, L. (in press). An Efficient Localization and Avoidance Method of Jammers in Vehicular Ad hoc Networks. IEEE Access,

Jamming is a terrifying attack that could harm the 802.11p-based vehicular communications by occupying the communication channels through overwhelming the network with jamming packets. In wireless vehicular ad hoc networks (VANET), the attacker's mis... Read More about An Efficient Localization and Avoidance Method of Jammers in Vehicular Ad hoc Networks.

Family finds a way: experiences of multigenerational transnational new Chinese immigrant families in New Zealand (2021)
Thesis
Ran, G. (2021). Family finds a way: experiences of multigenerational transnational new Chinese immigrant families in New Zealand. (Thesis). Massey University. Retrieved from http://researchrepository.napier.ac.uk/Output/2974489

The Immigration Act 1987 fundamentally transformed New Zealand’s immigration policy from one that was race-based to one based on economic needs of New Zealand society. It opened the borders to immigrants from much wider regions. As a result of this “...
