Cavitation erosion in polymer aqueous solutions (2007)
Journal Article
Brujan, E. A., Al-Hussany, A. F. H., Williams, R. L., & Williams, P. R. (2008). Cavitation erosion in polymer aqueous solutions. Wear, 264(11-12), 1035-1042. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.wear.2007.08.007

We report the results of experiments designed to test the hypothesis that the enhanced levels of extensional viscosity conferred upon a liquid due to a polymer additive substantially mitigate cavitation damage, in addition to substantially increasing...

A study of gelatin gelation by Fourier transform mechanical spectroscopy (2007)
Journal Article
Hawkins, K., Lawrence, M., Williams, P. R., & Williams, R. L. (2008). A study of gelatin gelation by Fourier transform mechanical spectroscopy. Journal of Non-Newtonian Fluid Mechanics, 148(1-3), 127-133. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.jnnfm.2007.05.016

This paper reports the results of experiments which were designed to test the hypothesis that the recording of anomalous values of rheological exponents in the gelation of gelatin may, under some circumstances, be due to inappropriate rheometry. Resu... Read More about A study of gelatin gelation by Fourier transform mechanical spectroscopy.

Rheometrical detection of incipient blood clot formation by Fourier transform mechanical spectroscopy (2007)
Journal Article
Evans, P. A., Hawkins, K., Williams, P. R., & Williams, R. L. (2008). Rheometrical detection of incipient blood clot formation by Fourier transform mechanical spectroscopy. Journal of Non-Newtonian Fluid Mechanics, 148(1-3), 122-126. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.jnnfm.2007.04.020

We report a study of the coagulation of whole blood by oscillatory shear Fourier transform mechanical spectroscopy. The results include the first identification of the Gel Point of coagulating blood in terms of the Chambon–Winter Gel Point criterion...

An investigation of possible improvements in accuracy of regressions between diffuse and global solar irradiation. (2007)
Journal Article
Clarke, P., Munawwar, S., Davidson, A., Muneer, T., & Kubie, J. (2007). An investigation of possible improvements in accuracy of regressions between diffuse and global solar irradiation. Building Service Engineering Research and Technology, 28, 189-197. https://doi.org/10.1177/0143624407076907

Horizontal hourly and sub-hourly diffuse and beam irradiance are required for the estimation of global irradiance on a given tilted surface. This information is used by engineers and architects for various solar energy applications and also to calcul...
