Experimental and computational investigation of the role of stress fiber contractility in the resistance of osteoblasts to compression
The mechanical behavior of the actin cytoskeleton has previously been investigated using both experimental and computational techniques. However, these investigations have not elucidated the role the cytoskeleton plays in ...
Improving the Delivery of a Construction Management Study-Abroad Course in Ireland through Student Feedback
International study abroad offers limitless opportunities for students to learn outside of the traditional university setting. By living and learning in a foreign country, the student's exposure to a different culture can ...
Optimizing nitrate removal and evaluating pollution swapping trade-offs from laboratory denitrification bioreactors
Denitrification bioreactors, typically containing woodchips, are artificial sinks used to remediate nitrate (NO3-) losses on agricultural landscapes. Analysis of these bioreactors frequently considers their efficacy in ...
The performance of granitic, shale and limestone forest road aggregates under repeated loading
(American Society of Civil Engineers, 2014-01-20)
This study compared the performance of three aggregate layerings, commonly used in the construction of unbound forest roads in Ireland, when they were subjected to repeated loading in a new large-scale test rig. These ...
Effect of rainfall interval on runoff losses of biosolids and meat and bone meal when applied to a grassland soil
This study assessed runoff losses following laboratory rainfall simulation on a grassland soil at two time intervals (48 and 216 h) after a single application of biosolids and meat and bone meal (MBM). The treatments were: ...
Comparison of a stratified and a single-layer laboratory sand filter to treat dairy soiled water from a farm-scale woodchip filter
Washing-down parlours and standing areas, following milking on dairy farms, produces dairy soiled water (DSW) that contains variable concentrations of nutrients. Aerobic woodchip filters can remove organic matter, nutrients ...
An integrated approach to trophic assessment of coastal waters incorporating measurement, modelling and water quality classification
Various protocols have been developed for trophic assessment of coastal waters but most incorporate single value compliance criteria for water quality parameters which, in reality, exhibit significant spatial variation. ...
The impact of service-learning on voluntary and community organizations in the west of Ireland
(NUI Maynooth, 2014-04)
The aim of this study was to investigate the impact of student volunteers on community organizations and to identify deficits in training within service learning modules which, if addressed, could enable community organizations ...
Effect of modeling approach on climate change focused life cycle assessments for a contemporary smartphone device
Life cycle assessments (LCA) of consumer electronics and beyond are usually performed and reported very differently. As a result it is often difficult to assess the robustness, variability and transparency of reported LCA ...
