Journal Article
Carollo, D., Tissera, P. B., Beers, T. C., Gudin, D., Gibson, B. K., Freeman, K. C., & Monachesi, A. (2018). The origin of the Milky Way's halo age distribution. Astrophysical journal. Letters, 859(1), L7. doi:10.3847/2041-8213/aac2dc

© 2018. The American Astronomical Society.. We present an analysis of the radial age gradients for the stellar halos of five Milky Way (MW) mass-sized systems simulated as part of the Aquarius Project. The halos show a diversity of age trends, reflec... Read More

Viscoelastically prestressed polymeric matrix composites: An investigation into fibre deformation and prestress mechanisms (2018)
Journal Article
Wang, B., & Fancey, K. S. (2018). Viscoelastically prestressed polymeric matrix composites: An investigation into fibre deformation and prestress mechanisms. Composites Part A: Applied Science and Manufacturing, 111, 106-114. doi:10.1016/j.compositesa.2018.05.013

© 2018 Elsevier Ltd A viscoelastically prestressed polymeric matrix composite (VPPMC) is produced by subjecting polymeric fibres to a creep load, which is removed before moulding the fibres into a polymeric matrix. The resulting fibre viscoelastic re... Read More

Correlations between age, kinematics, and chemistry as seen by the RAVE survey (2018)
Journal Article
Wojno, J., Kordopatis, G., Steinmetz, M., McMillan, P., Binney, J., Famaey, B., …Seabroke, G. (2018). Correlations between age, kinematics, and chemistry as seen by the RAVE survey. Monthly notices, containing papers, abstracts of papers, and reports of the proceedings of the Society, 477(4), 5612-5624. doi:10.1093/mnras/sty1016

We explore the connections between stellar age, chemistry, and kinematics across a Galactocentric distance of 7.5 < R(kpc) < 9.0, using a sample of ∼12 000 intermediate-mass (FGK) turn-off stars observed with the RAdial Velocity Experiment (RAVE) sur... Read More

Improved distances and ages for stars common to TGAS and RAVE (2018)
Journal Article
McMillan, P. J., Kordopatis, G., Kunder, A., Binney, J., Wojno, J., Zwitter, T., …Wyse, R. F. (2018). Improved distances and ages for stars common to TGAS and RAVE. Monthly notices, containing papers, abstracts of papers, and reports of the proceedings of the Society, 477(4), 5279-5300. doi:10.1093/MNRAS/STY990

We combine parallaxes from the first Gaia data release with the spectrophotometric distance estimation framework for stars in the fifth RAVE survey data release. The combined distance estimates are more accurate than either determination in isolation... Read More

The role of stellar radial motions in shaping galaxy surface brightness profiles (2017)
Journal Article
Ruiz-Lara, T., Few, C. G., Florido, E., Gibson, B. K., Pérez, I., & Sánchez-Blázquez, P. (2017). The role of stellar radial motions in shaping galaxy surface brightness profiles. Astronomy and Astrophysics, 608, (A126). doi:10.1051/0004-6361/201731485. ISSN 0004-6361

Aims. The physics driving features such as breaks observed in galaxy surface brightness (SB) profiles remains contentious. Here, we assess the importance of stellar radial motions in shaping their characteristics. Methods. We use the simulated Milky... Read More
