    • Assessing aerodynamic performance in cycling using computational fluid dynamics 

      Mannion, Paul; Clifford, Eoghan; Blocken, Bert; Hajdukiewicz, Magdalena (NUI Galway, 2016-08-29)
      Aerodynamic resistance is one of the leading challenges to overcome in elite cycling. To optimize cycling aerodynamics, estimates must first be made by means of wind tunnel testing, computational fluid dynamics or track ...
    • Carbonation in stabilised peat: an accelerated pilot study 

      Duggan, Alan R.; McCabe, Bryan A.; Clifford, Eoghan; Goggins, Jamie (ICE Institution of Civil Engineers, 2015)
      Due to stringent environmental regulations, embodied carbon estimates are being used increasingly to assess the environmental impact of major building and infrastructure projects, including their geotechnical components. ...
    • Factors affecting Embodied Carbon/Embodied Energy associated with ground improvements techniques for construction on peat 

      Duggan, Alan R.; McCabe, Bryan A.; Goggins, Jamie; Clifford, Eoghan (NUI Galway, 2012)
      In addition to the traditional drivers of cost and timely programme delivery, embodied energy (EE) and embodied carbon (EC) have emerged as major considerations in all aspects (including geotechnical) of large construction ...
    • Interactive Water Services: The Waternomics Approach 

      Curry, Edward; Degeler, Viktoriya; Clifford, Eoghan; Coakley, Daniel (Elsevier, 2014)
      WATERNOMICS focuses on the development of ICT as an enabling technology to manage water as a resource, increase end - user conservation awareness and affect behavioral changes. Unique aspects of WATERNOMICS include ...
    • Linked Water Data for Water Information Management 

      Curry, Edward; Degeler, Viktoriya; Clifford, Eoghan; Coakley, Daniel (2014)
      [no abstract available]
    • Multiphase numerical modelling of hydraulic structures with rapidly rotating flows: Stormwater vortex hydrodynamic separator 

      Mullligan, Sean; McDermott, Dermot; Clifford, Eoghan (Conferences and Events at DigitalCommons@USU, 2018-05-15)
      Hydraulic structures exhibiting strongly rotating flows are widely applied in the field of urban and wastewater hydraulics. Given demographic, urban development and climate change challenge, such infrastructure will require ...
    • Numerical simulation and assessment of the effects of inlet configuration on the flushing time of a potable water service reservoir 

      O'Neill, Colin J.; Nash, Stephen; Clifford, Eoghan; Mullligan, Sean (Conferences and Events at DigitalCommons@USU, 2018-05-15)
      Service reservoirs provide the dual function of balancing supply with demand and providing adequate pressure in the water supply network by maintaining sufficient pressure head. In a potable water service reservoir, the ...
    • Real-time control of occupants thermal comfort in buildings 

      Hajdukiewicz, Magdalena; O'Connor, Padraig; O'Neill, Colin; Coakley, Daniel; Keane, Marcus M.; Clifford, Eoghan (International Building Performance Simulation Association, 2015-12-07)
      Providing satisfactory indoor environmental conditions, air quality and thermal comfort through adequate ventilation is crucial in maintaining safe, healthy and comfortable buildings. Since, heating, ventilation and air ...
    • Use of carbon calculation tools for sustainable cycle network design 

      Manton, Richard; Duggan, Alan R.; Goggins, Jamie; McCabe, Bryan A.; Clifford, Eoghan (NUI Galway, 2012)
      In recent years European cycling has undergone a renaissance with various initiatives including the establishment of EuroVelo and the proposed European trans-border cycling infrastructure. Significant advances on this ...
    • Vortex drop shaft structures: state-of-the-art and future trends 

      Mulligan, Sean; Plant, Joss; Nash, Stephen; Clifford, Eoghan (International Association for Hydro-Environment Engineering and Research (IAHR), 2019-09-01)
      Vortex drop shaft structures have played a critical role in hydraulic engineering; from one of their first applications in hydroelectric energy dissipation in the 1940s, to numerous contemporary installations throughout modern ...
