  • Brace response and assessment: computation, experiments and design (BRACED) 

    Goggins, Jamie (Seismic engineering research infrastructures for European synergies (SERIES) , Project No.: 227887, 2013)
    The BRACED project investigated the ultimate behaviour of concentrically braced frames(CBFs). The research programme was designed to validate empirical models for theductility capacity of hollow section bracing members and ...
  • Numerical modelling of pile foundation angular distortion 

    Sheil, Brian B.; McCabe, Bryan A. (Elsevier, 2015-05-16)
    In this paper, the PLAXIS 3-D Foundation finite element (FE) software package, in conjunction with the nonlinear Hardening Soil (HS) constitutive model, is employed in an extensive parametric study of the angular distortion ...
  • Repeated load testing of two schist and limestone aggregate materials used in unbound forest roads 

    Rodgers, M., Keaney, J., Healy, M.G. (2009)
    This study examined the behaviour of two completion aggregates that were placed on a silty sandy formation material and subjected to repeated loading in a large-scale testing rig. The completion aggregates were (i) a good ...
  • Shaft resistance of driven cast-in-situ piles in sand 

    Flynn, Kevin N.; McCabe, Bryan A. (NRC Research Press, 2015-06-25)
    Driven cast-in-situ (DCIS) piles are classified as a large displacement pile, despite sharing certain aspects of their construction with replacement pile types. However, there are relatively few case histories of load tests ...
  • Use of carbon calculation tools for sustainable cycle network design 

    Manton, Richard; Duggan, Alan R.; Goggins, Jamie; McCabe, Bryan A.; Clifford, Eoghan (NUI Galway, 2012)
    In recent years European cycling has undergone a renaissance with various initiatives including the establishment of EuroVelo and the proposed European trans-border cycling infrastructure. Significant advances on this ...
