  • Enhanced real-time face models from stereo imaging for gaming applications 

    Ionita, Mircea C.; Andorko, Istvan; Corcoran, Peter (IEEE, 2009-10-23)
    Techniques for improved 2D active appearance face models are presented. When these are applied to stereoscopic image pairs we show that sufficient information on image depth is obtained to generate an approximate 3D face ...
  • Enterprise knowledge management 

    Cormican, Kathryn; O'Sullivan, David (2000)
    The knowledge-based theory of a firm suggests that knowledge is the only remaining sustainable resource that can provide competitive advantage in dynamic environments. Knowledge is a key resource that must be actively ...
  • Enterprise modeling for the customer focused company 

    Cormican, Kathryn; Shang, Yue (2002)
    The business environment is changing at an accelerated pace. Consequently, continuous systemic changes within companies are imperative. We are witnessing a shift in the way organizations are designed, structured and ...
  • The environmental performance of a reinforced precast concrete slab with void forming system 

    Hajdukiewicz, Magdelena; Lebrene, J; Goggins, Jamie (2014)
    In some climates people spend approximately 90% of their lives indoors. Thus, it is very important to maintain healthy and comfortable conditions in buildings. The building sector is responsible for about 40% of the ...
  • Equation-based policy optimization for agent-oriented system dynamics models 

    Duggan, James (Wiley Blackwell, 2008-01-01)
    Within system dynamics, optimization has played an important role in identifying the best range of parameter values for policies in any given model. Optimal solutions focus on discovering the best combination of model ...
  • Erodibility of hill peat 

    Mulqueen, J.; Rodgers, M.; Marren, N.; Healy, Mark G. (Teagasc, 2006-06-30)
    The energy necessary to entrain soil in water depends on the soil strength. Once entrained, the settling velocity of the eroded soil in water is of fundamental importance to the processes of sediment transport and deposition. ...
  • Estimation of Maximum Biosolids and Meat and Bone Meal Application to a Low P Index Soil and a Method to Test for Nutrient and Metal Losses 

    Lucid, Joseph D.; Fenton, Owen; Healy, Mark G. (2013)
    The aim of this study was to develop (1) a method for the calculation of the maximum legal rate at which meat and bone meal (MBM) and biosolids should be applied to land, which took into account the soil phosphorus (P) ...
  • Evaluating the structural capacity of concrete elements through in-situ instrumentation 

    Byrne, David; Goggins, Jamie (2013)
    The difficulty in predicting the long term load capacity of concrete elements is well documented. Time dependent effects such as creep and shrinkage coupled with varying loading events, particularly during construction, ...
  • Evaluation of amendments to control phosphorus losses in runoff from dairy soiled water. 

    Fenton, Owen; Serrenho, Ana; Healy, Mark G. (Springer, 2011-12-01)
    Amendments with the potential to reduce phosphorus (P) losses from agricultural grassland arising from the land application of dairy-soiled water (DSW) were investigated. Optimal application rates were studied, and associated ...
  • Evaluation of chemical amendments to control phosphorus losses from dairy slurry 

    Brennan, Raymond B.; Rodgers, Michael; Healy, Mark G. (Wiley, 2011)
    Land application of dairy slurry can result in incidental losses of phosphorus (P) to runoff in addition to increased loss of P from soil as a result of a buildup in soil test P (STP). An agitator test was used to identify ...
  • Evaluation of chemical amendments to control phosphorus losses from dairy slurry. 

    Brennan, Raymond B.; Rodgers, Michael; Healy, Mark G. (Soil Use and Management, 2011-06-01)
    The aim of this paper is to identify chemicals with the potential to reduce P losses from agricultural grassland arising from the land application of dairy cattle slurry. It also aims to identify optimal application rates ...
  • Evaluation of Combined Visible/NIR Camera for Iris Authentication on smartphones 

    Thavalengal, Shejin; Bigioi, Petronel; Corcoran, Peter (IEEE, 2015)
    Iris biometrics provide a mature and robust method of authentication, but are typically applied in a controlled environment and under constrained acquisition conditions. In this paper, the adaption of iris biometrics for ...
  • Evaluation of various turbulence models to predict indoor conditions in a naturally ventilated room 

    Hajdukiewicz, Magdalena; Geron, M.; Keane, MM (2013)
