The cytotoxic and genotoxic potential of titanium dioxide (TiO2) nanoparticles on human SH-SY5Y neuronal cells in vitro (University of Plymouth, 2016)Titanium dioxide (TiO2) nanoparticles are one of the most commonly used nanomaterials. They are used in plastics, sunscreens, personal care products, pharmaceuticals and the food industry due to their photocatalytic ...
Analysis of manufacturing parameters on the shear strength of aluminium/GFRP co-cured and adhesively bonded single-lap joints (University of Plymouth, 2016)Due to the increased application of composite materials in recent years, the process of joining composites to metals has become a key area of interest. As a result, methods to increase the strength of composite-to-metal ...
(University of Plymouth, 2016)This literature review provides a brief discussion of the Riemann Hypothesis, a conjecture regarding the location of the zeros on the Riemann zeta function. We also look at the implications of solving the hypothesis, and ...
Factors affecting the quantity of social interactions and aggression in captive group housed Asiatic black bears (Ursus thibetanus) (University of Plymouth, 2016)This study observed a group of Asiatic black bears (Ursus thibetanus) in a captive environment that differs greatly to standard zoological institutions. Rather than being housed alone or with one other, as is typical in ...
Modelling the response of phytoplankton to mesoscale and submesoscale processes at the Sub-Antarctic Front (University of Plymouth, 2016)This study extends a basic NPZ (Nutrient, Phytoplankton, Zooplankton) model to investigate the impact of turbulence on phytoplankton growth. Despite recent studies suggesting that submesoscale dynamics are crucial for the ...
(University of Plymouth, 2016)Project II is a continuation of project I which studied the effects of wave incidence angle and current interaction around offshore Wind Turbine Monopiles. This report presents a brief recap of project I findings and ...
(University of Plymouth, 2016)This report covers the possible recycling options for end-of-life glass fibre reinforced polymers. Two forms (jigsaw and diamond bladed wet saw) of composite size reduction were compared to determine the most viable option. ...
(University of Plymouth, 2016)There is wide acknowledgement that the cerebral hemispheres do not operate in isolation when processing complex visual stimuli (Singh, 2000; Schulte & Muller-Oehring, 2010). Patterns of interhemispheric communication are ...
The influence of resin rich volumes on the mechanical properties of glass fibre reinforced polymer composites (University of Plymouth, 2016)Glass fibre composite plates were manufactured using several methods to promote increasing levels of fibre volume fraction (Vf), inversely leading to a lower residual resin content and theoretically smaller resin rich ...
