Examining variations in hospital productivity in the english nhs
(Springer Nature, 2014-02-25)
Numerous papers have measured hospital efficiency, mainly using a technique known as data envelopment analysis (DEA). A shortcoming of this technique is that the number of outputs for each hospital generally outstrips the ...
Stone column settlement performance in structured anisotropic clays: the influence of creep
(Elsevier BV, 2016-10-01)
Short-term forecasting of coastal surface currents using high frequency radar data and artificial neural networks
(MDPI AG, 2018-05-31)
Accurate and timely information of surface currents is crucial for various operations such as search and rescue, marine renewable energy extraction and oil spill treatment. Conventional approaches to study coastal surface ...
Variations in adolescents’ motivational characteristics across gender and physical activity patterns: a latent class analysis approach
(Springer Nature, 2017-08-17)
Background: Neglecting to take account of the underlying context or type of physical activity (PA) that underpins overall involvement has resulted in a limited understanding of adolescents' PA participation. The purpose ...
Meeting the needs of visually impaired people living in lifetime homes
(Informa UK Limited, 2016-04-02)
This article explores perceptions on the suitability and effectiveness of Lifetime Homes standards (LTHS) for those with visual impairment in Northern Ireland. LTHS are a series of mandatory United Kingdom public-sector ...
Genetic loci controlling carotenoid biosynthesis in diverse tropical maize lines
(Genetics Society of America, 2018-01-29)
The discovery and use of genetic markers associated with carotenoid levels can help to exploit the genetic potential of maize for provitamin A accumulation more effectively. Provitamin A carotenoids are classes of carotenoids ...

Automated estimation of collagen fibre dispersion in the dermis and its contribution to the anisotropic behaviour of skin
(Springer Nature, 2012-03-17)
Collagen fibres play an important role in the mechanical behaviour of many soft tissues. Modelling of such tissues now often incorporates a collagen fibre distribution. However, the availability of accurate structural data ...
