    Macleod, Christopher; McMinn, David; Reddipogu, Ann; Capanni, Niccolo Francesco; Maxwell, Grant M. (Robert Gordon University, 2001)
    MACLEOD, C., MCMINN, D., REDDIPOGU, A. B., CAPANNI, N. F. and MAXWELL, G. M., 2001. Evolution and devolved action: towards the evolution of systems. In: Appendix B of MCMINN, D. Using evolutionary artificial neural networks to design hierarchical animat nervous systems, Ph. D. thesis. Aberdeen : Robert Gordon University.
    The Artificial Neural Networks group at the Robert Gordon University has, over the last six years, built up considerable knowledge and practical experience in Evolutionary Artificial Neural Networks. This experience ...
  • Fuel encapsulation for inertial electrostatic confinement nuclear fusion reactors. 

    Macleod, Christopher; Capanni, Niccolo Francesco; Gow, Kenneth S. (British Interplanetary Society., 2011-05)
    MACLEOD, C., CAPANNI, N. F. and GOW, K. S., 2011. Fuel encapsulation for inertial electrostatic confinement nuclear fusion reactors. Journal of the British Interplanetary Society, 64 (5), pp. 139-149.
    Inertial Electrostatic Confinement (IEC) is an approach to nuclear fusion which utilises the properties of electrostatically accelerated ion-beams instead of hot plasmas. The best known device which uses the principle is ...
  • The functionality of spatial and time domain artificial neural models 

    Capanni, Niccolo Francesco (The Robert Gordon University School of Engineering, 2006-08)
    This thesis investigates the functionality of the units used in connectionist Artificial Intelligence systems. Artificial Neural Networks form the foundation of the research and their units, Artificial Neurons, are first ...
  • Overcoming fuel-air mixing issues with pulsed scramjets and pelletized fuel. 

    Macleod, Christopher; Capanni, Niccolo Francesco; Gow, Kenneth S. (British Interplanetary Society http://www.jbis.org.uk/paper.php?p=2015.68.354, 2015-11-01)
    MACLEOD, C., CAPANNI, N.F. and GOW, K.S., 2015. Overcoming fuel-air mixing issues with pulsed scramjets and pelletized fuel. Journal of the British Interplanetary Society [online], Vol 68 (11), pp. 354-362. Available from: http://www.jbis.org.uk/paper.php?p=2015.68.354
    n this paper the concept of a pulsed Scramjet using pelletized fuel is examined. The aim is to overcome the main technical problem inherent in more traditional designs - poor air-fuel mixing. In this new paradigm, airflow ...
  • Some practical aspects of electromagnetic activation. 

    Macleod, Christopher; Gow, Kenneth S.; Capanni, Niccolo Francesco (The British Interplanetary Society, 2010)
    MACLEOD, C., GOW, K. S. and CAPANNI, N. F., 2010. Some practical aspects of electromagnetic activation. The Journal of the British Interplanetary Society (JBIS), 62 (9), pp. 320-331.
    Electromagnetic Activation (EMA) is an alternative to combustion in Scramjet-like hypersonic engines. The basis of the system was outlined in previous publications. This paper builds on these results and explores some ...
