Void distributions and permeability prediction for rotationally moulded polymers
An experimental study of void distributions for rotationally moulded polyethylene is presented. The effects of key variables such as maximum process temperature and nominal wall thickness (via powder mass) are studied. ...
Flipped learning in a civil engineering module: student and instructor experiences
(Irish Learning Technology Association, 2018-08-24)
Flipped learning is a form of active learning in which the basic content is assimilated before scheduled classroom sessions, enabling more productive use of classroom time to cultivate problem-solving ability, a key ...
Infrared thermography technique as an in-situ method of assessing heat loss through thermal bridging
A key aspect in assessing the thermal standard of building envelopes is the quantification of the heat loss though thermal bridging, which can be expressed in terms of the linear thermal transmittance Psi. Values of W may ...
Diagnostic definitions and figures of male and female Tetanocera punctifrons and T. latifibula, new records of T. punctifrons in Ireland, and notes on biology (Diptera, Sciomyzidae).
(The Society for the study of flies (Diptera) affiliated to the British Entomological and Natural History Society (BENHS), 2017)
The presence of Tetanocera punctifrons Rondani, 1868 in Ireland is reconfirmed. The species is distinguished from the very similar T. latifibula Frey, 1924. The female abdomens of both species are described for the first ...

An evaluation of the general composition and critical raw material content of bauxite residue in a storage area over a twelve-year period
Bauxite residue, the by-product produced in the alumina industry, is being produced at an estimated global rate of approximately 150 million tonnes per annum. Currently, the reuse of bauxite residue is low (∼2%), due to ...
Lifecycle environmental and economic performance of nearly zero energy buildings (NZEB) in Ireland
Directives in the European Union are ensuring that buildings in this region are moving towards nearly zero energy buildings (NZEB). For countries like Ireland, which has a temperate oceanic climate, a key to achieving NZEB ...
Super-insulate or use renewable technology? Life cycle cost, energy and global warming potential analysis of nearly zero energy buildings (NZEB) in a temperate oceanic climate
There are numerous strategies available to design and construct a low energy or nearly zero energy building (NZEB). However, the design strategy for a building depends on a high number of factors including location, climate, ...
Real-time monitoring to investigate structural performance of hybrid precast concrete educational buildings
(Taylor & Francis, 2016-11-22)
The motivation and implementation of a real-time structural health monitoring strategy to determine the structural performance of a number of educational buildings recently constructed in Ireland is discussed in this paper. ...
Application of optimization methods to the design of high performance composite pipelines
This paper describes a contribution to the research carried out by a consortium under the BRITE/EURAM programme of the EC on the application of optimisation techniques to problems of engineering design using composite ...
