Optimising a Waste Heat Recovery System using Multi-Objective Evolutionary Algorithm (2016)
Conference Proceeding
Mokhtar, M., Hunt, I., Burns, S., & Ross, D. (2016). Optimising a Waste Heat Recovery System using Multi-Objective Evolutionary Algorithm. In GECCO '16 Companion Proceedings of the 2016 on Genetic and Evolutionary Computation Conference Companion (913-920). https://doi.org/10.1145/2908961.2931646

A waste heat recovery system (WHRS) on a process with variable output, is an example of an intermittent renewable process. WHRS recycles waste heat into usable energy. As an example, waste heat produced from refrigeration can be used to provide hot w... Read More about Optimising a Waste Heat Recovery System using Multi-Objective Evolutionary Algorithm.

Isotropically conductive adhesives for electronic manufacture of flexible printed circuit boards (2002)
Conference Proceeding
Roeck, M., & Hunt, I. (2002). Isotropically conductive adhesives for electronic manufacture of flexible printed circuit boards. In Proceedings of 3rd Electronics Packaging Technology Conference, 2000. (EPTC 2000). https://doi.org/10.1109/eptc.2000.906395

The use of polyester as flexible printed circuit board substrates implies that alternative low temperature curing conductive materials are required for assembling electronic circuits. In addition, conductive adhesives are used as a solution which eli... Read More about Isotropically conductive adhesives for electronic manufacture of flexible printed circuit boards.
