    • Assessment of Reinforced Concrete Half-Joint Structures: Dealing with Deterioration 

      Desnerck, Pieter; Lees, Janet M.; Morley, Chris (Prestressed Concrete Institute, 2014)
      In the US and UK the existing infrastructure is aging and the safety is sometimes questioned. Of all bridges in the US, constructed with reinforced concrete (RC), around 10% are classified as structurally deficient or ...
    • Assessment of the impact of the scanner-related factors on brain morphometry analysis with Brainvisa 

      Shokouhi, Mahsa; Barnes, Anna; Suckling, John; Moorhead, Thomas WJ; Brennan, David; Job, Dominic; Lymer, Katherine et al. (2011-12-21)
      Abstract Background Brain morphometry is extensively used in cross-sectional studies. However, the difference in the estimated values of the morphometric measures between patients and healthy subjects may be small and hence ...
    • An assessment of the lattice strain in the CrMnFeCoNi high-entropy alloy 

      Owen, LR; Pickering, EJ; Playford, HY; Stone, Howard James; Tucker, MG; Jones, Nicholas Gwilym (Elsevier, 2016-09-28)
      The formation of single phase solid solutions from combinations of multiple principal elements, with differing atomic radii, has led to the suggestion that the lattices of high-entropy alloys (HEAs) must be severely ...
    • Assessment of the MUSTA approach for numerical relativistic dynamics 

      Blakely, Philip Martin; Nikiforakis, Nikolaos; Henshaw, WD (2015-03-04)
    • Assessment of turbulence model performance: Large streamline curvature and integral length scales 

      Yang, Xiaoyu; Tucker, Paul G (Elsevier, 2015-12-10)
      For the flow over curved surfaces, an extra wall-normal pressure gradient is imposed to the flow through excessive surface pressure, such that the flow turns in alignment with the surface. In turn, turbulent fluctuations ...
    • Assessment of turbulence model performance: Severe acceleration with large integral length scales 

      Yang, Xiaoyu; Tucker, Paul G (Elsevier, 2015-12-17)
      Turbulence is substantially laminarised, when the mean flow experiences streamwise acceleration above a certain critical acceleration parameter. Recently, to essentially reveal aero engine intake acceleration scenarios, ...
    • An Assessment of Urinary Biomarkers in a Series of Declined Human Kidneys Measured During ex-vivo Normothermic Kidney Perfusion 

      Hosgood, Sarah Anne; Nicholson, ML (Wolters Kluwer, 2016-09-27)
      BACKGROUND: The measurement of urinary biomarkers during ex-vivo normothermic kidney perfusion (EVKP) may aid in the assessment of a kidney prior to transplantation. This study measured levels of neutrophil gelatinase-associated ...
    • An assessment on the incremental value of high-resolution magnetic resonance imaging to identify culprit plaques in atherosclerotic disease of the middle cerebral artery 

      Teng, Zhongzhao; Peng, Wenjia; Zhan, Qian; Zhang, Xuefeng; Jiu, Qi; Chen, Shiyue; Tian, Xia et al. (Springer, 2015-09-15)
      Objective: Although certain morphological features depicted by high resolution, multicontrast magnetic resonance imaging (hrMRI) have been shown to be different between culprit and non-culprit middle cerebral artery (MCA) ...

    • Asset Management with Price Impact and Fair Treatment of Clients 

      Jezek, M.; Satchell, S. (Faculty of Economics, 2010-05-29)
      In light of recent regulatory initiatives focusing on fair treatment of customers in financial markets, this paper examines the agency problem created by an asset manager with market impact, segregated accounts and ...
    • Asset Management with Price Impact and Fair Treatment of Clients 

      Jezek, M.; Satchell, Stephen E. (Faculty of Economics, 2010-05)
    • Asset price manipulation with several traders 

      Walther, Ansgar (Faculty of Economics, 2012-10-08)
      In financial markets with asymmetric information, traders may have an incentive to forgo profitable deals today in order to preserve their informational advantage for future deals. This sort of manipulative behaviour has ...

    • Assigning and visualizing germline genes in antibody repertoires 

      Frost, Simon David; Murrell, Ben; Hossain, AS Md Mukarram; Silverman, Gregg J; Pond, Sergei L Kosakovsky (2015-07-20)
    • Assimilation, and the Definite Nominal Particle in Balti Tibetan 

      Sprigg, R. K. (Namgyal Institute of Tibetology, Gangtok, Sikkim, 1972-07-14)
    • Assisted extraction of the energy level spacings and lever arms in direct current bias measurements of one-dimensional quantum wires, using an image recognition routine 

      Lesage, AAJ; Smith, Luke William; Al-Taie, H; See, P; Griffiths, JP; Farrer, Ian; Jones, GAC et al. (AIP Publishing, 2015-01-06)
      A multiplexer technique is used to individually measure an array of 256 split gates on a single GaAs/AlGaAs heterostructure. This results in the generation of large volumes of data, which requires the development of automated ...
    • Association analyses based on false discovery rate implicate new loci for coronary artery disease 

      Nelson, CP; Goel, A; Butterworth, Adam Stuart; Kanoni, S; Webb, TR; Marouli, E; Zeng, L et al.
      Genome-wide association studies (GWAS) in coronary artery disease (CAD) had identified 66 loci at 'genome-wide significance' (P < 5 × 10(-8)) at the time of this analysis, but a much larger number of putative loci at a ...
    • Association analysis identifies 65 new breast cancer risk loci 

      Michailidou, K; Lindström, S; Dennis, J; Beesley, J; Hui, S; Kar, S; Lemaçon, A et al. (Nature Publishing Group, 2017-10-23)
      Breast cancer risk is influenced by rare coding variants in susceptibility genes, such as BRCA1, and many common, mostly non-coding variants. However, much of the genetic contribution to breast cancer risk remains unknown. ...
