  • Connectivity solutions to link a bluetooth camera to the internet 

    Ionas, Adrian; Corcoran, Peter M. (IEEE, 2001)
    Digital photography is gaining day by day more and more credibility over conventional photography due to a number of factors easy to guess. Bluetooth connectivity in the digital camera provides cordless communication with ...
  • Consequences of varied soil hydraulic and meteorological complexity on unsaturated zone time lag estimates. 

    Vero, S.E.; Healy, Mark G. (Elsevier, 2014-10-13)

    Keating, E.; Healy, Mark G.; Rodgers, Michael (Nova Publishers, 2008-06-01)
    Highway surface runoff contains pollutants such as total suspended solids (TSS), hydrocarbons, de-icing salts, and heavy metals. Treatment methods for highway runoff include storage/treatment facilities, such as constructed ...
  • 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 ...

  • The creation of a living laboratory for structural engineering at the National University of Ireland, Galway 

    Goggins, Jamie; Byrne, D; Cannon, E (2012)
    The recently completed New Engineering Building (NEB) at the National University of Ireland, Galway (NUIG) is a new state of the art academic facility on the university's north campus. The building unites all five ...
  • Creativity toolkit for R&D managers 

    Cormican, Kathryn (2004)
    In this, the twenty first century, innovation has become one of the most important and effective ways of obtaining and sustaining competitive dominance in the market place over the past number of years. Many firms are ...
  • Creep improvement factors for vibro-replacement design 

    Sexton, Brian G.; Sivakumar, Vinayagamoothy; McCabe, Bryan A. (ICE Publishing, 2017-02)
    Although the vibro-replacement stone column technique is being deployed increasingly in soft cohesive soil deposits in which creep settlements may be significant/dominant, the majority of existing stone column settlement ...
  • A critical analysis of plastic flow behaviour in axisymmetric isothermal and Gleeble compression testing 

    Bennett, CJ,Leen, SB,Williams, EJ,Shipway, PH,Hyde, TH; Leen, Sean B. (Elsevier ScienceDirect, 2010-08-16)
    Coupled thermo-mechanical finite element modelling of both isothermal axisymmetric compression and compression testing using the Gleeble thermo-mechanical simulator has been carried out in order to compare the levels of ...
  • A customer centric process innovation toolkit for SMEs 

    Cormican, Kathryn; Mulligan, David (2006)
    The business environment is changing at an accelerated pace. Consequently, continuous systemic changes within companies are imperative. In light of this, we are witnessing a shift in the way organizations are designed, ...
  • 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. ...
