  • High temperature, low cycle fatigue characterisation of P91 weld and heat affected zone material 

    Farragher, Tadhg P.; Leen, Sean B. (American Society of Mechanical Engineers, 2014-01-08)
    The high temperature low cycle fatigue behavior of P91 weld metal (WM) and weld joints (cross-weld) is presented. Strain-controlled tests have been carried out at 400 °C and 500 °C. The cyclic behavior of the weld material ...
  • High-resolution measurement of the unsteady velocity field to evaluate blood damage induced by a mechanical heart valve 

    Bellofiore, Alessandro; Quinlan, Nathan J. (Springer, 2011-09)
    We investigate the potential of prosthetic heart valves to generate abnormal flow and stress patterns, which can contribute to platelet activation and lysis according to blood damage accumulation mechanisms. High-resolution ...
  • ICT as an Opportunity for Regional Development: the Extremadura Case 

    Cormican, Kathryn (2007)
    The present paper describes the case of Extremadura Region as well as the lessons that can be learned from the processes of re-focussing its regional growth strategy. A brief introduction will show the way many regions or ...
