Unsaturated behaviour of a stabilized marine sediment: A comparison of cement and GGBS binders
In order to ascertain the contaminant-encapsulation potential of stabilized soil, an understanding of its unsaturated hydraulic behaviour, specifically the Soil Water Retention Curve (SWRC), is paramount. In this paper, ...

Application of infrared thermography technique to the thermal assessment of multiple thermal bridges and windows
A major contribution to the global trend in reducing energy consumption can be made by improving the thermal performance of buildings. Minimization of heat loss via the building envelope is key to maximizing building energy ...
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 ...
Mechanical characterisation of green Sitka spruce logs
(NUI Galway, 2016-08-29)
ABSTRACT: Timber is by its nature a very heterogeneous material. Many different factors impact its mechanical properties, from tree species to environment (climate, competition, soil…). While a number of studies in the ...
