Where technology & law meet: Open Access research on data security & its regulation ...

Strathprints makes available Open Access scholarly outputs exploring both the technical aspects of computer security, but also the regulation of existing or emerging technologies. A research specialism of the Department of Computer & Information Sciences (CIS) is computer security. Researchers explore issues surrounding web intrusion detection techniques, malware characteristics, textual steganography and trusted systems. Digital forensics and cyber crime are also a focus.

Meanwhile, the School of Law and its Centre for Internet Law & Policy undertake studies on Internet governance. An important component of this work is consideration of privacy and data protection questions and the increasing focus on cybercrime and 'cyberterrorism'.

Abstract

This paper describes a methodology for assessing the applicability of the flow forming process for the manufacture of specific components. The process starts by filtering potential candidates for flow forming from a component collection and then carries out a detailed assessment of quantitative, technological and economic feasibility before determining a viable process plan. The process described uses analytical relationships and criteria drawn from the literature. For example, qualitative feasibility is evaluated using analytical relationships for ultimate strength prediction. Similarly technological validation is done estimating forming process forces and defects rate which are evaluated against threshold values. A process time model is used to develop a hybrid cost model in order to evaluate economic feasibility. Using these calculated values production feasibilities are established by comparison with reported reduction ratios and process parameters. The paper concluded with a brief summary of the results of applying the process to an industrial case study.
