    • Measured and predicted t-z curves for a driven pile in lightly overconsolidated silt 

      McCabe, Bryan A.; Lehane, Barry M. (National University of Ireland Galway, 2008-04-03)
      Data from a static compression load test on a single driven pile in a lightly overconsolidated silt are presented in this paper. The pile was equipped with vibrating wire strain gauges along its length enabling its load ...
    • Mechanical characterisation of green Sitka spruce logs 

      Krajnc, Luka; Farrelly, Niall; Harte, Annette M. (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 ...
    • Mechanical properties estimation by non-destructive testing of Irish hardwood round timber from thinnings for construction purposes 

      Llana, Daniel F.; Short, Ian; O'Ceallaigh, Conan; Harte, Annette M. (Department of Forestry Policy and Economics, University of Sopron, Hungary, 2018-10-25)
      Thinning involves the removal of competitors of high quality trees, and trees for extraction racks, all to favour the growth of the selected trees. Many felled trees are small-diameter and in Ireland hardwood thinnings are ...
    • Mechanisms of flooding in Cork City 

      Olbert, Agnieszka Indiana; Comer, Joanne; Nash, Stephen; Hartnett, Michael (International Association of Hydrological Sciences, 2015-11-17)
      Flooding is one of the most frequent and devastating natural disasters. Many urban developments are located in estuaries where river flow and sea water merge. Cork City situated in the River Lee estuary frequently subject ...
