Computer assisted orthopaedic surgical system for insertion of distal locking screws in intra-medullary nails: a valid and reliable navigation system (2005)
Journal Article
Malek, S., Phillips, R., Mohsen, A., Viant, W., Bielby, M., & Sherman, K. (2005). Computer assisted orthopaedic surgical system for insertion of distal locking screws in intra-medullary nails: a valid and reliable navigation system. International Journal of Medical Robotics and Computer Assisted Surgery, 1(4), 34-44. doi:10.1002/rcs.54

The insertion of distal locking screws is a difficult task in intra-medullary (IM) nailing operations of long bones and contributes a significant proportion to the overall operating time. The current technique to insert these screws uses numerous flu... Read More

Interactions between fangblennies (Plagiotremus rhinorhynchus) and their potential victims: fooling the model rather than the client? (2005)
Journal Article
Johnson, M. L., & Hull, S. L. (2006). Interactions between fangblennies (Plagiotremus rhinorhynchus) and their potential victims: fooling the model rather than the client?. Marine Biology, 148(4), (889-897). doi:10.1007/s00227-005-0118-y. ISSN 0025-3162

Lepidophagous (scale-eating) blue-striped fangblennies (Plagiotremus rhinorhynchus Bleeker 1852) are often found sympatrically with the bluestreak cleaner wrasse (Labroides dimidiatus Valenciennes 1839). They have some resemblance to the juvenile L.... Read More

The effect of variation in atmospheric absorption on millimetric, terrestrial, telecommunications links (2005)
Journal Article
Paulson, K. S. (2005). The effect of variation in atmospheric absorption on millimetric, terrestrial, telecommunications links. Radio science, 40(6), doi:10.1029/2004RS003218

When planning the link budget for millimeter and submillimeter wave telecommunications links, the attenuation by atmospheric gasses is taken into account. However, at millimetric frequencies above 50 GHz it may become necessary to account for the tem... Read More

Use of shallow water habitats by fish assemblages in a Mediterranean coastal lagoon (2005)
Journal Article
Franco, A., Franzoi, P., Malavasi, S., Riccato, F., Torricelli, P., & Mainardi, D. (2006). Use of shallow water habitats by fish assemblages in a Mediterranean coastal lagoon. Estuarine, coastal and shelf science, 66(1-2), 67-83. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.ecss.2005.07.020

The present study investigates the different uses and the functional roles of shallow habitats for fish fauna in the Venice Lagoon, by applying the functional guilds approach. Temporal (seasons) and spatial (location) changes within the lagoon show d... Read More

An investigation of the effect of feedback on TLM nodes representing heat transfer (2005)
Journal Article
Koay, A. L., Pulko, S. H., & Wilkinson, A. J. (2005). An investigation of the effect of feedback on TLM nodes representing heat transfer. International journal of numerical modelling, 18(6), 399-411. doi:10.1002/jnm.586

TLM is a very successful technique for modelling thermal transients in heat transfer systems. However, useful though transient modelling is, there are many systems in which the desired thermal behaviour can only be obtained by direct, real-time inter... Read More

Fighting in fiddler crabs Uca mjoebergi: what determines duration? (2005)
Journal Article
Morrell, L. J., Backwell, P. R., & Metcalfe, N. B. (2005). Fighting in fiddler crabs Uca mjoebergi: what determines duration?. Animal behaviour, 70(3), (653-662). doi:10.1016/j.anbehav.2004.11.014. ISSN 0003-3472

Contest duration in animals is often interpreted as being a consequence of mutual assessment of the difference in the competitors' resource-holding potential (RHP), allowing the inferior individual to avoid costly interactions it is likely to lose. D... Read More

A mechanical model for creep, recovery and stress relaxation in polymeric materials (2005)
Journal Article
Fancey, K. S. (2005). A mechanical model for creep, recovery and stress relaxation in polymeric materials. Journal of materials science, 40(18), (4827-4831). doi:10.1007/s10853-005-2020-x. ISSN 0022-2461

A mechanical model is presented, in which viscoelastic response is described by the action of time-dependent latch elements. The model represents viscoelastic changes occurring through incremental jumps as opposed to continuous motion. This is suppor... Read More

Constructive implicit fitting (2005)
Journal Article
Li, Q., Griffiths, J. G., & Ward, J. (2005). Constructive implicit fitting. Computer aided geometric design, 23(1), 17-44. doi:10.1016/j.cagd.2005.04.011

In this paper, we present a constructive method for fitting both an explicit and an implicit curve or surface to a set of scattered points by using gate functions. With this technique, the data are first partitioned with geometric primitives into sma... Read More

Tuning of electronic coupling between self-assembled quantum dots (2005)
Journal Article
Rybchenko, S., Itskevich, I., Skolnick, M. S., Cahill, J., Tartakovskii, A. I., Hill, G., & Hopkinson, M. (2005). Tuning of electronic coupling between self-assembled quantum dots. Applied physics letters, 87(3), 033104. doi:10.1063/1.1995953

Semiconductor self-assembled quantum dots (SAQDs) normally have zero-dimensional properties, but become coupled and acquire higher-dimensional character if the distance between the dots is small. Using photoluminescence spectroscopy under high hydros... Read More

Why are small males aggressive? (2005)
Journal Article
Morrell, L. J., Lindström, J., & Ruxton, G. D. (2005). Why are small males aggressive?. Proceedings. the Royal Society. Biological sciences /, 272(1569), 1235-1241. doi:10.1098/rspb.2005.3085

Aggression is ubiquitous in the animal kingdom, whenever the interests of individuals conflict. In contests between animals, the larger opponent is often victorious. However, counter intuitively, an individual that has little chance of winning (gener... Read More
