Stone column effectiveness in soils with creep: a numerical study
(Taylor & Francis, 2016-03-16)
While it is well established that vibro stone columns reduce primary settlement and improve bearing capacity, their effect on creep compression has largely been overlooked to date. However, with increasing pressure to ...
Micromechanical finite element modelling of thermo-mechanical fatigue for P91 steels,
In this paper, the cyclic plasticity and fatigue crack initiation behaviour of a tempered martensitic ferritic steel under thermo-mechanical fatigue conditions is examined by means of micromechanical finite element modelling. ...
Bioaccumulation of metals in ryegrass (Lolium perenne L.) following the application of lime stabilised, thermally dried and anaerobically digested sewage sludge.
(Elsevier ScienceDirect, 2016-05-09)
The uptake and accumulation of metals in plants is a potential pathway for the transfer of environmental contaminants in the food chain, and poses potential health and environmental risks. In light of increased population ...
Cyclic dominance in the spatial coevolutionary optional prisoner's dilemma game
This paper studies scenarios of cyclic dominance in a coevolutionary spatial model in which game strategies and links between agents adaptively evolve over time. The Optional Prisoner’s Dilemma (OPD) game is employed. ...

Heave-ho! A laboratory model of an underfloor environment incorporating pyritiferous fill
(NUI Galway, 2016)
Damage to domestic dwellings in the greater Dublin area of Ireland caused by the expansion of underfloor fill material containing pyrite has become a high-profile national problem in recent years. In this paper, a novel ...
Discussion: Interaction factor for large pile groups
(ICE Publishing, 2016-09-27)
The authors present an interesting paper on the use of the interaction factor method (IFM) for settlement analysis of large pile groups.
Some geotechnical characteristics of soft soil deposits along the Terryland River Valley, Galway
The ground conditions in the Terryland River Valley area present considerable site development challenges to geotechnical engineers. The soft soil formation consists of peat overlying very soft, highly compressible calcareous ...
Challenges for semantically driven collaborative spaces
Linked Data initiatives have fostered the publication of more than one thousand of datasets in the Linking Open Data (LOD) cloud from a large variety of domains, e.g., Life Sciences, Media, and Government. Albeit large ...
An evolutionary approach to formation control with mobile robots
(SciTePress Digital Library, 2016)
The field of swarm robotics studies multi-robot systems, emphasising decentralised and self-organising behaviours that deal with limited individual abilities, local sensing and local communication. A robotic system needs ...
