Emerging trends in electricity consumption for consumer ICT
Since 2009, several emerging technologies have initiated broad and disruptive impact across the ICT sector: cloud computing promises efficiency of scale both in terms of capital and operational costs; high-speed wireless ...
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 ...

Electricity in a Climate Constrained World [Book Review]
This latest study by the International Energy Agency (IEA) on world electricity consumption, its current status, and the most likely developments we are going to see during the next few years. If you are familiar with ...
Achieving nearly zero-energy buildings - A lifecycle assessment approach to retrofitting buildings
(NUI Galway, 2015-04-23)
It is now widely recognised in the academic and business worlds that energy efficiency in buildings provides significant environmental and economic opportunities, but also challenges. The building sector offers considerable ...
High-resolution measurement of the unsteady velocity field to evaluate blood damage induced by a mechanical heart valve
We investigate the potential of prosthetic heart valves to generate abnormal flow and stress patterns, which can contribute to platelet activation and lysis according to blood damage accumulation mechanisms. High-resolution ...
The Innovations and Inventions of Steve Jobs [IP Corner]
Much of the world of patents is shrouded in layers of legal mysticism, semantic nuances, and subtle complexities. Those of you who are regular readers of "IP Corner" will know that I often try to explain the principles ...
Scale-up of an unsteady flow field for enhanced spatial and temporal resolution of PIV measurements: application to leaflet wake flow in a mechanical heart valve
A scale-up approach is developed to enhance effective spatial and temporal resolution of PIV measurements. An analysis shows that complete similarity can be maintained for certain unsteady flows and that all types of error ...
Repairability Smackdown II: iPhone versus iPhone
Following our award-winning article last January , I thought it might be time to have another repair "smackdown," courtesy of Kyle Wiens and the iFixit repair gurus. But what could we do that would equal our previous ...
