Journal Article
Watson, P. J., Fagan, M. J., & Dobson, C. A. (in press). The influence of musculoskeletal forces on the growth of the prenatal cortex in the ilium: a finite element study. Computer methods in biomechanics and biomedical engineering, 1-9. https://doi.org/10.1080/10255842.2020.1777546

Remodelling and adaptation of bone within the pelvis is believed to be influenced by the mechanical strains generated during locomotion. Variation in the cortical bone thickness observed in the prenatal ilium has been linked to the musculoskeletal lo...

Wind turbine asymmetrical load reduction with pitch sensor fault compensation (2020)
Journal Article
Liu, Y., Patton, R. J., & Shi, S. (2020). Wind turbine asymmetrical load reduction with pitch sensor fault compensation. Wind energy, https://doi.org/10.1002/we.2496

Offshore wind turbines suffer from asymmetrical loading (blades, tower, etc), leading to enhanced structural fatigue. As well as asymmetrical loading different faults (pitch system faults etc.) can occur simultaneously, causing degradation of load mi...
