  • Cooperative contractility: the role of stress fibres in the regulation of cell-cell junctions 

    Ronan, William; McMeeking, Robert M.; Chen, Christopher S.; Deshpande, Vikram S. (Elsevier, 2014-11-27)
    We present simulations of cell-cell adhesion as reported in a recent study [Liu et al., 2010, PNAS, 107(22), 9944-9] for two cells seeded on an array of micro-posts. The micro-post array allows for the measurement of forces ...
  • A crash course on patents for engineers 

    Corcoran, Peter (IEEE, 2013-01-12)
    Most engineers are aware of the existence of patents. Indeed the preparation of patent disclosures is an important aspect of most research engineering job functions. Yet for many engineers the world of patents remains ...

  • Cyclic loading tests on sandstone and limestone shale aggregates used in unbound forest roads 

    Rodgers, Michael; Hayes, G; Healy, Mark G. (Elsevier, 2009)
    This study examined the performance of two aggregates subjected to cyclic loading in a large-scale test rig. The two aggregates examined were: (i) a sandstone from Co. Cork, Ireland and (ii) a limestone shale from Co. ...
  • Cyclic loading tests on sandstone and limestone shale aggregates used in unbound forest roads. 

    Rodgers, Michael; Hayes, Gregory; Healy, Mark G. (Construction and Building Materials, 2009-06-01)
    This study examined the performance of two aggregates subjected to cyclic loading in a large-scale test rig. The two aggregates examined were: (i) a sandstone from Co. Cork, Ireland and (ii) a limestone shale from Co. ...
  • Cyclic performance of steel and composite bracing members 

    Broderick, Brian Michael; Goggins, Jamie (2005)
    This paper describes an experimental study on the response of hollow and filled steel members to monotonic and cyclic axial loading. Monotonic tests were first performed on short specimens to establish their compressive ...
  • Cyclic thermo-mechanical material modelling and testing of 316 stainless steel 

    Leen, Sean B. (Elsevier ScienceDirect, 2010-04-20)
    A programme of cyclic mechanical testing of a 316 stainless steel, at temperatures of up to 600 C under isothermal conditions, for the identification of material constitutive constants, has been carried out using a ...
