A Matter of Timing: Consumer Electronics & Network Time
Network time protocol (NTP) has become widely used across the Internet to synchronize clocks on computers and, more recently, on a wide variety of handheld devices. You are using NTP on a daily basis without even knowing ...
Workplace Exposure to Bioaerosols in Podiatry Clinics
(Oxford Journals, 2012-01-03)
The aim of this study was to design and execute a pilot study to collect information on the personal exposure levels of podiatrists to microbial hazards in podiatry clinics and also to assess health and safety knowledge ...

Development of the meshless finite volume particle method with exact and efficient calculation of interparticle area
The Finite Volume Particle Method (FVPM) is a meshless method based on a definition of interparticle area which is closely analogous to cell face area in the classical finite volume method. In previous work, the interparticle ...
The use of digital resources in civil engineering education: Enhancing student learning and achieving accreditation criteria.
The use of digital resources in higher education has risen significantly over the last ten years and will continue to do so for the foreseeable future. The challenge for educational instructors is in determining how to ...
Adaptive Mesh Multi-Scale Modelling of Tidal Hydraulics and Material Transport
Multi-scale modelling for structured meshes is achieved by nesting high resolution grids within lower resolution grids. By specifying high resolutions in areas of interest only, computational cost can be reduced. Adaptive ...
The effects of array configuration on the hydro-environmental impacts of tidal turbines.
Tidal stream turbines provide a technically viable means of generating electricity from a sustainable resource; however, economic viability will require the deployment of multiple devices in array formations in a manner ...
A Performance Assessment Protocol for Structured Mesh Multi-Scale Models
Nesting techniques are used to develop multi-scale models giving higher resolution and thus greater accuracy in nested domains. The assessment of model accuracy is therefore important for the successful implementation of ...
Galway Bay bathymetry comparison from Admiralty Chart and LiDAR datasets.
The primary objective of this paper was to test the sensitivity of numerical models to bathymetry datasets. Bathymetric datasets used were from; 1) Admiralty Charts and 2) LiDAR & Multi- Beam Echo Sounder surveys. The ...
Facial enhancement and beautification for HD video cameras
Influenced by the widespread adoption of HDTV consumer imaging devices have begun to feature full HD (high density) video capture. With this high-resolution capability, small imperfections in human faces are captured with ...
