Service-oriented agent architecture for autonomous maritime vehicles
(Heriot-Watt University Engineering and Physical Sciences, 2013-12)
Advanced ocean systems are increasing their capabilities and the degree of autonomy more and more in order to perform more sophisticated maritime missions. Remotely operated vehicles are no longer cost-effective since they ...
An investigation into the production of UHMWPE fibres and coatings for protective apparel
(Heriot-Watt University Textiles and Design, 2013-07)
The primary aim of this research was to identify a novel process for the manufacturing of UHMWPE fibres and coating. Due to the high molecular weight of UHMWPE, it cannot be converted into fibres by standard extrusion ...
An investigation of the performance of photochromic dyes and their application to polyester and cotton fabrics
(Heriot-Watt University Textiles and Design, 2013-04)
Six commercial photochromic dyes were applied to polyester and, to a lesser extent, cotton fabrics by different dyeing and printing methods. The photochromic performance of the dyed and printed fabrics was investigated in ...
Investigating the formation of functional and smart materials by nanospinning and other spinning techniques
(Heriot-Watt University Textiles and Design, 2013-03)
Functional, smart fibres and fibres with different morphologies have been produced from different materials using different spinning methods. The effect of processing parameters on different nano fibre morphologies was ...
