Broadband dielectric properties of adrenal gland for accurate anatomical modelling in medical applications
Dielectric properties of biological tissue are important in safety assessment and evaluation of novel medical imaging and therapeutic devices. This paper reports frequency dependent dielectric properties of adrenal tissue, ...
Viscoelastic creep in reinforced glulam
(TU Verlag Wien, 2016-08-22)
The mechanical and physical properties of softwood timber can vary considerably as a result of the age and rate of growth of the tree and other environmental factors which affect the wood cell density and strength . ...
Evaluation of the structural behavior of beam-beam connection systems using compressed wood dowels and plates
(NUI Galway, 2018-08-20)
To support the transition to a bio-based society, it is preferable to substitute metallic fasteners and adhesives in timber construction with an eco-friendly alternative. Recent studies have identified compressed wood ...
Residual load development in cast in place piles - a review and a new case history
The development of residual (or locked-in)loads in driven pre-formed piles has been investigated extensively over the past 40 years or so. In contrast, cast-in-situ piles are often erroneously assumed to be free of residual ...
A numerical study of factors affecting the performance of stone columns supporting rigid footings on soft clay
(Taylor and Francis, 2010)
The Vibro Replacement technique is now frequently used as a means of improving the bearing capacity and settlement performance of soft cohesive soils. In this paper, a parametric study using the finite element method is ...
Analysis of microtunnel jacking forces in alluvium and glacial till in Mullingar, Ireland
The number of successful microtunnelling drives completed in Ireland is growing rapidly. However, current jacking force predictions rely on experience from the UK and beyond, often gained through work in soils with a small ...
Formal calibration methodology for CFD model development to support the operation of energy efficient buildings
(Texas A&M University, 2010)
Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) is a robust tool for modelling interactions within and between fluids and solids. CFD can help understand and predict phenomena that are difficult to test experimentally leading ...
Validated CFD study of indoor environmental conditions in a highly-glazed, cross-ventilated meeting room
This paper investigates the environmental conditions inside a highly-glazed cross-ventilated meeting room. A 3D computational fluid dynamics (CFD) model of an indoor environment is developed with the support of the field ...
Evaluation of various turbulence models to predict indoor conditions in a naturally ventilated room
In recent years, Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) has become a popular tool in building simulation. However, developing reliable CFD models requires a high level of expertise in fluid dynamics and numerical techniques. ...
