    • The Bauschinger effect 

      Woolley, Robert Lewis (University of St Andrews, 1953) - Thesis
      If a work-hardenable metal is deformed plastically by a tensile stress +σ₀ and unloaded, its mechanical properties become anisotropic; in particular, though its tensile yield stress is now +σ₀, it will deform plastically ...
    • Carbonated mantle domains at the base of the Earth's transition zone 

      Sun, Wei-dong; Hawkesworth, Chris J.; Yao, Chao; Zhang, Chan-chan; Huang, Rui-fang; Liu, Xi; Sun, Xin-lei; Ireland, Trevor; Song, Mao-shuang; Ling, Ming-xing; Ding, Xing; Zhang, Zhao-feng; Fan, Wei-ming; Wu, Zhong-qing (2018-02-05) - Journal article
      The oxygen fugacity of the upper mantle is 3–4 orders of magnitude higher than that of the lower mantle and this has been attributed to Fe2+ disproportionating into Fe3+ plus Fe0 at pressures > 24 GPa. The upper mantle ...
    • Low-energy electron scattering with the purine bases of DNA/RNA using the R-matrix method 

      Dora, Amar; Bryjko, Lilianna; van Mourik, Tanja; Tennyson, Jonathan (2012-01) - Journal article
      R-matrix calculations on electron collisions with the purine bases found in DNA and RNA (i.e., adenine and guanine) are presented. Resonant anion states of these systems are identified by employing different approximation ...
    • Supporting system deployment decisions in public clouds 

      Khajeh-Hosseini, Ali (University of St Andrews, 2013-06-26) - Thesis
      Decisions to deploy IT systems on public Infrastructure-as-a-Service clouds can be complicated as evaluating the benefits, risks and costs of using such clouds is not straightforward. The aim of this project was to investigate ...
