  • Doody, Owen; Tuohy, Dympna; Deasy, Christine (Mark Allen Healthcare, 2012)
    Role transition can be both challenging and exciting. This study presents the findings of phase one of a two-part study conducted by Deasy et al (2011), which explored final-year student nurses’ (n=116) perceptions and ...
  • Sanders, Martha H. (University of Limerick, 2008)
    The environment of software development and maintenance is intangible, invisible and consequently difficult to manage. Specific problems have been documented, and solutions developed to meet these individual problems. ...
  • English, Michael; Buckley, Jim; Cahill, Tony (IEEE Computer Society, 2007)
    Modularity is one of the key features of the Object-Oriented (OO) paradigm. Low coupling and high cohesion help to achieve good modularity. Inheritance is one of the core concepts of the OO paradigm which facilitates ...
  • McGloughlin, Timothy M.; Doyle, Barry J.; Callanan, Anthony; Walsh, Michael T.; Grace, Pierce A. (Bentham Science Publishers, 2009)
    Currently, abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAAs), which are a permanent dilation of the aorta, are treated surgically when the maximum transverse diameter surpasses 5.5cm. AAA rupture occurs when the locally acting wall stress ...
  • Dobson, Simon; Bailey, Eoin; Knox, Stephen; Shannon, Ross; Quigley, Aaron; SFI (IEEE Computer Society, 2007)
    Control systems must increasingly be designed to involve collections of hardware and software components, both of which may evolve over the lifetime of the system, and which are expected to provide self-managing, adaptive, ...
  • McHugh, Fearghal; Acton, Thomas (Center for Innovations in Business & Management Practice (CIBMP), 2012)
    The fast, unstructured and turbulent nature of decision making in agile software development (ASD) teams at times necessitates software-based support tools (Dabrowski, Acton, Drury, Conboy, and Dabrowska, 2011). The demands ...
  • Buglione, Luigi; Mc Caffery, Fergal; Hauck, Jean Carlo R.; Gresse von Wangenheim, Christiane (Springer, 2012)
    One of the main challenges for ICT organizations is to initiate a well-structured process improvement program. This is particularly the case when adopting a maturity & capability model (MCM) as it brings with it costs ...
  • Fitzgerald, Brian; Slaughter, Sandra A.; Agerfalk, Par J. (INFORMS (Institute for Operations Research and Management Sciences), 2006)
    In recent years, considerable research attention has been devoted to process flexibility and globally distributed IS development. The quest for flexibility is evident in the development of various agile methods, such as ...
  • Donlan, Seán Patrick; Kennedy, Rónán (2005)
    The Interpretation Act 2005 consolidates previous legislation and contains some new provisions inspired by a Law Reform Commission report. These may bring about a subtle but significant change in the methods of statutory ...
  • Bergel, Alexandre (IEEE Computer Society, 2011)
    Wireless sensor networks necessitate a programming model different from those used to develop desktop applications. Typically, resources in terms of power and memory are constrained. C is the most common programming language ...
  • Desmond, Michael; Storey, Margaret-Anne (2006)
    The use of modern programming paradigms and technologies,such as object orientation, inheritance, polymorphism and aspect orientation, facilitate a number of important software engineeringbenefits. Concerns can be better ...
  • Moloney David S; Callanan, Anthony; Kavanagh, Eamon C; Walsh, Michael T.; McGloughlin, Timothy M. (BioMed Central, 2009)
    Background: Abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA) are local dilatations of the infrarenal aorta. If left untreated they may rupture and lead to death. One form of treatment is the minimally invasive insertion of a stent-graft ...
  • Xue, Gang (University of Limerick, 2014)
    Miscanthus×giganteus (M×G), a typical bioenergy crop, has been widely planted in Ireland. But the virgin miscanthus is considered as a low grade fuel. The aim of this study is to investigate a method to (a) upgrade the ...
  • Doody, Owen; Slevin, Eamonn; Taggart, Laurence (Mark Allen Healthcare, 2012)
    Focus groups are used by researchers in the social and behavioural sciences to explore phenomena and are accepted as a legitimate qualitative methodology. The primary goal of focus groups is to use interaction data resulting ...
  • Doody, Owen; Slevin, Eamonn; Taggart, Laurence (Mark Allen Healthcare, 2013)
    The use of focus group interviews as a means of qualitative data collection has gained popularity in health service research in recent years. Despite their popularity, analysing qualitative data—particularly focus-group ...
  • Reid, M; Pomeroy, M.J; Vokal, V; Tanner, D.A (Maney Publishing, 2005)
    Discs of (pure nickel 15 mm diameter and 4 nun thickness) have been polished to a 1 mu m finish, aluminised using a standard pack CVD process to give a beta-NiAl coating and then the surface of this coating polished to a ...
  • Arshak, Khalil; Mihov, Miroslav; Arshak, Arousian; McDonagh, Declan; Sutton, D (IEEE Computer Society, 2004)
    Focused Ion Beam (FIB) lithography has significant advantages over the electron beam counterpart in terms of resist sensitivity, backscattering and proximity effects. Applying the Top Surface Imaging (TSI) principal to ...
  • Cox, Sara; Hitchings, Graham (IEEE Computer Society, 1992)
    Through a number of "participative learning" exercises, it may be demonstrated that the human brain can be very predictable in its modus operandii. This is an excellent attribute when considered as a conditioned response ...
