  • Technology Transfer for Product Life Cycle Extension: A Model for Successful Implementation 

    Cormican, Kathryn; O'Connor, Michael (2009)
    This paper examines the logistical and operational issues relating to technology transfer. It documents the specific problems encountered as well as the solution designed to overcome these problems. The paper presents a ...
  • A thermodynamically motivated model for stress-fiber reorganization 

    Vigliotti, A.; Ronan, William; Baaijens, F.P.T.; Deshpande, V.S. (Springer Verlag, 2015-09-04)
    We present a model for stress-fiber reorganization and the associated contractility that includes both the kinetics of stress-fiber formation and dissociation as well as the kinetics of stress-fiber remodeling. These ...
  • Truncation error in mesh-free particle methods 

    Quinlan, Nathan J.; Basa, Mihai; Lastiwka, Martin (2006-06-25)
    A truncation error analysis has been developed for the approximation of spatial derivatives in smoothed particle hydrodynamics (SPH) and related first-order consistent methods such as the first-order form of the reproducing ...
  • A unified viscoplastic model for high temperature low cycle fatigue of service-aged P91 steel 

    Barrett, R.A.; Farragher, T. P.; Hyde, C. J.; O'Dowd, N. P.; O'Donoghue, P. E.; Leen, Sean B. (American Society of Mechanical Engineers, 2014-01-07)
    The finite element (FE) implementation of a hyperbolic sine unified cyclic viscoplasticity model is presented. The hyperbolic sine flow rule facilitates the identification of strain-rate independent material parameters for ...
  • Value chain migration from production to product centred operations: an analysis of the Irish medical device industry 

    Cormican, Kathryn (2006)
    The medical device industry in Ireland is largely confined to manufacturing operations. This narrow focus limits the competitiveness of the industry in Ireland and consequently poses a threat to development and growth. ...
  • Virtual team environment for collaborative research projects 

    Precup, Lavinia; O'Sullivan, David; Cormican, Kathryn (2006)
    One of the main limiting factors that reduce the potential output the innovation projects, involving different organisations and individuals from different geographical areas, is the poor communication and knowledge sharing ...
  • Void distributions and permeability prediction for rotationally moulded polymers 

    Murray, Brendan R.; Leen, Sean B.; Ó Brádaigh, Conchúr M. (SAGE, 2014-01-22)
    An experimental study of void distributions for rotationally moulded polyethylene is presented. The effects of key variables such as maximum process temperature and nominal wall thickness (via powder mass) are studied. ...
  • Workplace Exposure to Bioaerosols in Podiatry Clinics 

    Coggins, Marie; Hogan, Victoria; Kelly, Martina; Fleming, Gerard; Roberts, Nigel (Oxford Journals, 2012-01-03)
    The aim of this study was to design and execute a pilot study to collect information on the personal exposure levels of podiatrists to microbial hazards in podiatry clinics and also to assess health and safety knowledge ...
  • An XFEM-Based Methodology for Fatigue Delamination and Permeability in Composites 

    Grogan, David M.; Leen, Sean B.; Ó Brádaigh, Conchúr M. (2014)
    Carbon fibre reinforced polymers (CFRP) are one of the prospective material families being investigated for use in the fuel tanks of future reusable space launch vehicles (RSLVs). The extreme thermo-mechanical loading that ...
