    • Automated detection and characterisation of rumination in sheep using $\textit{in vivo}$ electrophysiology 

      Nicol, Alister U.; Perentos, Nicholas; Martins, Amadeu Q.; Morton, A. Jennifer (Elsevier, 2016-05-17)
      Rumination is a precisely timed process that occupies a large part of a sheep's day. The complex motor coordination required to chew and swallow means that quantification of rumination may provide a surrogate marker for ...
    • Automated Detection of Multiple Pavement Defects 

      Radopoulou, Stefania C.; Brilakis, Ioannis (American Society of Civil Engineers, 2016-09-26)
      Knowing the pavement condition is essential for efficiently deciding on maintenance programs. Current practice is predominantly manual with only 0.4% of inspections happening automatically. All methods in the literature ...
    • Automated Ex Situ Assays of Amyloid Formation on a Microfluidic Platform 

      Saar, Kadi-Liis; Yates, Emma V.; Müller, Thomas; Saunier, Séverine; Dobson, Christopher M.; Knowles, Tuomas P. J. (Elsevier, 02-02-2016)
      Increasingly prevalent neurodegenerative diseases are associated with the formation of nanoscale amyloid aggregates from normally soluble peptides and proteins. A widely used strategy for following the aggregation process ...
    • An automated fitting procedure and software for dose-response curves with multiphasic features 

      Di Veroli, Giovanni Y.; Fornari, Chiara; Goldlust, Ian; Mills, Graham; Koh, Siang Boon; Bramhall, Jo L.; Richards, Frances M. et al. (NPG, 2015-10-01)
      In cancer pharmacology (and many other areas), most dose-response curves are satisfactorily described by a classical Hill equation (i.e. 4 parameters logistical). Nevertheless, there are instances where the marked presence ...
    • Automated measurement of concrete spalling through reinforcement detection 

      Paal, Stephanie German; Brilakis, Ioannis; DesRoches, Reginald (American Society of Civil Engineers, 2014-11-20)
      In emergency scenarios, immediate reconnaissance efforts are necessary. These efforts often take months to complete in full. While underway, building occupants are unable to return to their homes/businesses, and thus, the ...
    • Automated modal identification and tracking: application to an iron arch bridge 

      Cabboi, Alessandro; Magalhaes, Filipe; Gentile, Carmelo; Cunha, Alvaro (Wiley, 2016)
      Challenges concerning the automation of modal identification and tracking procedures in permanent monitoring systems for Structural Health Monitoring purposes are discussed. In this context, an automated procedure based ...
    • Automated modelling of viscoelastic flow using FEniCS 

      Molari, Luisa; Wells, G N (2006)
      Using high-level abstractions, it is possible to efficiently automate the development of finite element models. This has advantages in terms of rapid development, a dramatic reduction in programming errors and offers the ...
    • An automated online instrument to quantify aerosol-bound reactive oxygen species (ROS) for ambient measurement and health-relevant aerosol studies 

      Wragg, FPH; Fuller, SJ; Freshwater, R; Green, DC; Kelly, FJ; Kalberer, M (Copernicus, 2016-10-06)
      The adverse health effects associated with ambient aerosol particles have been well documented, but it is still unclear which aerosol properties are most important for their negative health impact. Some studies suggest the ...
