Open Access: World leading research into plasma physics...

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the Department of Physics, including those researching plasma physics.

Plasma physics explores the '4th' state of matter known as 'plasma'. Profound new insights are being made by Strathclyde researchers in their attempts to better understand plasma, its behaviour and applications. Areas of focus include plasma wave propagation, non-linear wave interactions in the ionosphere, magnetospheric cyclotron instabilities, the parametric instabilities in plasmas, and much more.

Based on the REF 2014 GPA Scores, Times Higher Education ranked Strathclyde as number one in the UK for physics research.

Abstract

This report confirmed that dwellings built to the most recent Scottish Building Regulations for prescribing construction air tightness are suffering from poor indoor air quality. Trickle ventilators are not up to the task of providing sufficient air change rates even in the small percentage of dwellings where the occupier/s knows what they are and maintains them in the open position. The report concluded with a range of recommendations that have now been put out for consultation.
