  • Fire Size and Fire Spread in Tunnels with Longitudinal Ventilation Systems. 

    Carvel, Ricky O; Beard, Alan; Jowitt, P W; Drysdale, Dougal (SAGE Publications, 2005)
    The results and findings of three previous research projects are combined with new research to estimate the overall influence of longitudinal ventilation on fire size and spread in tunnels. Each of the three previous ...
  • FireGrid: An e-infrastructure for next-generation emergency response support 

    Han, Liangxiu; Potter, Stephen; Beckett, George; Pringle, Gavin; Welch, Stephen; Koo, Sung-Han; Wickler, Gerhard; Usmani, Asif; Torero, Jose L; Tate, Austin (Elsevier Journal of Parallel and Distributed Computing, 2010)
    The FireGrid project aims to harness the potential of advanced forms of computation to support the response to large-scale emergencies (with an initial focus on the response to fires in the built environment). Computational ...
  • FIRESTRUC - Integrating advanced three-dimensional modelling methodologies for predicting thermo-mechanical behaviour of steel and composite structures subjected to natural fires 

    Welch, Stephen; Miles, Steward; Kumar, Suresh; Lemaire, Tony; Chan, Alan (The International Assocation of Fire Safety Science (IAFSS), 2008-09)
    A hierarchy of coupling strategies for integrating advanced three-dimensional modelling methodologies for prediction of the thermo-mechanical response of structures in fire has been developed and systematically assessed. ...
  • Fission yeast mod5p regulates polarized growth through anchoring of tea1p at cell tips 

    Snaith, Hilary A; Sawin, Ken (Nature Publishing Group, 2003-06-05)
    Microtubules have a central role in eukaryotic cell polarity1, in part through interactions between microtubule end-binding proteins and the cell cortex2,3. In the fission yeast Schizosaccharomyces pombe, microtubules ...
  • Fitting Standard Software Packages to Non-Standard Organisations: The 'Biography' of an Enterprise-Wide System 

    Pollock, N.; Williams, R.; Proctor, R. (external) (Routledge, 2003-09-01)
    This paper investigates the development and implementation of a generic off-the-shelf computer package and the competing pressures for standardisation and differentiation as this package is made to fit new organisational ...
  • Flammability of Christmas Trees 

    Van Wagner, C. E. (1963)
    The flammability of conifers used as Christmas trees depends mainly on the foliar moisture content and also on the crown density. Trees allowed to dry can be ignited with matches when the moisture content falls to about ...
  • Flies put the buzz back into long-term-potentiation 

    Paulsen, Ole; Morris, Richard G M (Nature Publishing Group, 2002-04)
    Two new papers show that an atypical protein kinase C may mediate the maintenance of long-term potentiation in the mouse hippocampus and of associative memory in Drosophila.
  • Fluxes of trichloroacetic acid through a conifer forest canopy 

    Stidson, R T; Heal, Kate V; Dickey, Catherine A; Cape, Neil; Heal, Mathew R (Elsevier, 2004)
    Controlled-dosing experiments with conifer seedlings have demonstrated an aboveground route of uptake for trichloroacetic acid (TCA) from aqueous solution into the canopy, in addition to uptake from the soil. The aim of ...
  • fMRI changes over time and reproducibility in unmedicated subjects at high genetic risk of schizophrenia 

    Whalley, H. C.; Gountouna, V-E.; Hall, J.; McIntosh, A. M.; Simonotto, E.; Job, D. E.; Owens, D. G. C.; Johnstone, E. C.; Lawrie, S. M. (Cambridge University Press, 2009-07)
    Background. Functional brain abnormalities have been repeatedly demonstrated in schizophrenia but there is little data concerning their progression. For such studies to have credibility it is first important to establish ...
  • Formation and destruction of the Eratosthenes Seamount, Eastern Mediterranean Sea, and implications for collisional processes. 

    Robertson, Alastair H F (Ocean Drilling Program, 1998)
    The first of two tectonic-oriented objectives during Leg 160 in the Eastern Mediterranean Sea (April–May, 1995) was concerned with study of processes of genesis and incipient collision of the Eratosthenes Seamount, a ...
  • A formulaic approach to translation at the post office: Reading the signs 

    Wray, Alison; Cox, Stephen; Lincoln, Michael; Tryggvason, Judy (Elsevier, 2004)
    TESSA is an interactive translation system designed to support transactions between a post office clerk and a deaf customer. The system translates the clerk’s speech into British Sign Language (BSL), displayed on a screen, ...
  • Fouling autopsy of hollow-fibre MF membranes in wastewater reclamation 

    Nghiem, Long D.; Schäfer, Andrea (Elsevier, 2006)
    Fouling in membrane filtration processes is problematic but inevitable as it occurs with the retention of contaminants that accumulate on the membrane surface. The causes of fouling are often specific, depending upon feed ...
  • Fouling effects on rejection in the membrane filtration of natural waters 

    Schäfer, Andrea; Fane, Anthony G.; Waite, T D (Elsevier, 2000)
    Membrane processes in drinking water applications are micro- (MF), ultra- (UF) and nanofiltration (NF). These processes remove turbidity and bacteria (MF), viruses and macromolecules (UF) and small molecules and hardness ...
  • Fouling in greywater recycling by direct ultrafiltration 

    Nghiem, Long D.; Oschmann, Nadine; Schäfer, Andrea (Elsevier, 2006)
    Greywater is no doubt a valuable resource that can be used to alleviate water shortage and increase water conservation in individual households. It is particularly important for arid and semiarid regions like Australia. ...
  • Fouling mechanisms of submerged ultrafiltration membranes in greywater recycling 

    Oschmann, Nadine; Nghiem, L. D.; Schäfer, Andrea (Elsevier, 2005)

  • Free Belief 

    Toribio, Josefa (Kluwer, 2003)
    The main goal of this paper is to show that Pettit and Smith’s (1996) argument concerning the nature of free belief is importantly incomplete. I accept Pettit and Smith’s emphasis upon normative constraints governing ...
