The structural exploitation of fibrous-cement composites in reinforced concrete T-beams (1978)
Thesis
Yousif, N. The structural exploitation of fibrous-cement composites in reinforced concrete T-beams. (Thesis). University of Salford

The thesis expounds the logic behind a new concept of composite construction which exploits fibre reinforced cement composites in the form of channels, placed in the tensile zone of reinforced concrete T-beams. The fibre reinforced cement composites,... Read More about The structural exploitation of fibrous-cement composites in reinforced concrete T-beams.

The preparation of thin film graded band gap solar cells (1978)
Thesis
Radojcic, R. The preparation of thin film graded band gap solar cells. (Thesis). University of Salford, UK

Thin film solar cells with a band gap graded in the thickness direction were prepared by vacuum evaporation of various alloys of Cadmium Sulphide (CdS) and Cadmium Telluride (CdTe) onto glass substrates. Theoretical computer analyses were carried... Read More about The preparation of thin film graded band gap solar cells.

The use of Monte Carlo calculations in the prediction of quasi-elastic neutron scattering from atoms diffusing in periodic lattices (1978)
Presentation / Conference
Ross, D., & Wilson, D. (1978, March). The use of Monte Carlo calculations in the prediction of quasi-elastic neutron scattering from atoms diffusing in periodic lattices. Presented at International Atomic Energy Agency, Vienna

The application of Monte Carlo techniques to the calculation of quasi-elastic neutron scattering from atoms diffusing in a periodic potential is described. The method is valid for any defect concentration and can be applied to either incoherent or co...

An investigation into ion plating mechanisms and parameters (1978)
Thesis
Delcea, B. An investigation into ion plating mechanisms and parameters. (Thesis). University of Salford, UK

Ion plating is a fairly new and modern technique for obtaining very adhesive films on any kind of surface and substrate material. The development of electron gun evaporation sources created the possibility to deposit, with high rates, materials hav... Read More about An investigation into ion plating mechanisms and parameters.

An ecological investigation of the intertidal benthic invertebrates of the Dee Estuary (1978)
Thesis
Gillham, R. An ecological investigation of the intertidal benthic invertebrates of the Dee Estuary. (Thesis). University of Salford, UK

The aim of the thesis was the investigation of the intertidal macroinvertebrate distributions of the Dee Estuary and the factors controlling their distributions. The work consisted of a series of extensive systematic grid surveys over the Estuary i... Read More about An ecological investigation of the intertidal benthic invertebrates of the Dee Estuary.
