  • Forced Oscillation Dynamics of Surface Nanobubbles 

    Dockar, Duncan; Gibelli, Livio; Borg, Matthew
    This data set provides the molecular dynamics simulation results and template LAMMPS setup cases for the research we present in the paper accepted by the Journal of Chemical Physics under the same title as this data set.
  • Development of a Compact Water Activity Sensor System for Planetary Exploration 

    Desai, Prarthana; Schmueser, Ilka; Mackenzie Dover, Coinneach M; Underwood, Ian; Cockell, Charles S
    Water is a fundamental requirement for life. Its biological availability is partly determined by water activity and thus measuring this parameter is vital in industries such as food, agriculture and beyond. Apart from its ...
  • CANTERA Reduced Chemical Mechanism for Dimethyl Ether Combustion 

    Aparece-Scutariu, V
    The file contains a reduce chemical mechanism for Dimethyl ether-air combustion. It is a reduced mechanism containing 31 species and 82 reactions, converted from the CHEMKIN input file of Pan et al. [1]. The mechanism is ...
  • Manipulating Etch Selectivities in XeF2 Vapour Etching 

    Rondé, Markus; Terry, Jonathan; Walton, Anthony
    This workbook contains the raw data for figures 2 - 8, some datasets were used to generate multiple figures. In this case, they are summarised in one datasheet. You can switch between them using the tabs at the bottom of ...

    Face coverings and respiratory tract droplet dispersion Supplementary Information. # Background: # Respiratory droplets are the primary transmission route for SARS-CoV-2; a principle which drives social distancing guidelines. ...
  • extractStoreys 

    Valero, Enrique; Bosché, Frédéric
    This algorithm takes a point cloud of a building as a main input, divides it into storeys, extract structural elements and parametrises their geometry and relationships. Input arguments are the following: (1) path to file ...
  • calculateOpenings 

    Valero, Enrique; Bosché, Frédéric
    This program reads pairs of point clouds corresponding to both sides of every wall, identifies where holes are on the surfaces and calculate openings, by analysing the overlapping between patches extracted from the two ...
  • editMaterials 

    Ceklarz, Michal; Valero, Enrique; Bosché, Frédéric
    This program adds and edits material information of IfcWalls and IfcSlabs contained in the IFC model (schema IFC4X1). The input argument is a path to the IFC file that is to be edited. The output argument is the edited IFC ...
  • IFC Generator 

    Valero, Enrique; Bosché, Frédéric
    This program reads a pseudo-IFC file, containing semantic information about the structural entities defining a building and produces an IFC (STEP) file. The only input argument is the path to this file. The output is an ...

  • Dense gas flow simulations in ultra-tight confinement 

    Sheng, Qiang; Gibelli, Livio; Li, Jun; Borg, Matthew; Zhang, Yonghao
  • Masonry segmentation plugin for CloudCompare 

    Valero, Enrique; Bosché, Frédéric
    The current version of the plugin focuses on point clouds of rubble masonry (and this also leads to the segmentation of mortar regions) for "straight" walls (i.e. without significant curvature). A future version shall also ...
  • Synthetic building 

    Valero, Enrique
    Artificially generated point cloud (cloud_coloured.e57) of a one-storey facility with three spaces including openings in the walls. The IFC model (model.ifc) obtained from the cloud has been enriched with 2nd level space ...
