Representing and sharing tagging data using the social semantic cloud of tags
(IGI Global, 2009-07)
Social tagging has become an essential element for Web 2.0 and the emerging Semantic Web applications. With the rise of Web 2.0, websites that provide content creation and sharing features have become extremely popular. ...
Oxidation behaviour of particle reinforced MoSi2 composites at temperatures up to 1700°C
The topic Oxidation behaviour of particle reinforced MoSi2 composites at temperatures up to 1700°C is discussed in a three part publication. In the first part of this paper a literature survey on the oxidation ...

An analysis of third-level multi-cultural interdisciplinary student learning outcomes using Wiki technology
(ILTA Irish Learning Technology Association, 2009-05-21)
The increasing need for effective collaboration among interdisciplinary groups suggests the necessity of developing teaching pedagogy that infuses teaching techniques with technologies. Combining Business and Engineering ...
Ground improvement using the vibro- stone column technique
(Institution of Engineers in Ireland, 2007)
The Vibro Stone Column technique is one of the most widely-used ground improvement processes in the world, although its potential for improving Irish sites has yet to be fully exploited. Historically the system has been ...
Cyclic performance of steel and composite bracing members
This paper describes an experimental study on the response of hollow and filled steel members to monotonic and cyclic axial loading. Monotonic tests were first performed on short specimens to establish their compressive ...
Installation of a reduced-scale pile group in silt
(IHS BRE Press, 2008)
This paper presents measurements of total stress and pore pressure made during and after the installation of a reduced scale group of five piles in a soft estuarine silt. The instrumentation includes pore pressure and ...
Prediction of pile settlement using artificial neural networks based on standard penetration test data
In recent years artificial neural networks (ANNs) have been applied to many geotechnical engineering problems with some degree of success. With respect to the design of pile foundations, accurate prediction of pile settlement ...
An improved experimental test set-up to study the performance of granular columns
(ASTM International, 2006-03)
This paper describes an innovative design of a newly developed large test setup for testing the performance of footings supported on soft clay reinforced with granular columns. This advanced testing method is used to examine ...
Oxidation behaviour of particle reinforced MoSi2 composites at temperatures up to 1700 °C, Part I: Literature Review
In the first part of this paper the results of a literature review are presented. An overview of the oxidation behaviour in air and in combustion environments of both pure MoSi2 and MoSi2 composites in the temperature range ...
