  • Kok, Mariana (University of Limerick, 2014)
    Contamination caused by insects on aircraft leading edge surfaces can result in premature transition of the boundary layer, leading to an increase in skin friction drag and fuel consumption. Consequently, the use of novel ...
  • Finnegan, Elizabeth M (University of Limerick, 2014)
    The objective of this thesis was to contribute to improving the quality of fresh-cut fruits by identifying how raw material use, processing, packaging and storage might be optimised. Effects of intrinsic and extrinsic ...
  • Rojas, karla Dussan (University of Limerick, 2014)
    The production of energy and chemicals from renewable resources has gained significant attention as a means to support the transition from fossil fuels towards clean and sustainable technologies. Due to its availability ...
  • Callinan, Nigel (University of Limerick, 2014)
    This thesis aims to provide a new perspective on the development of South Korea’s Information and Communications Technologies (ICT) Business Environment by taking a cross-disciplinary look at the area. Most studies on this ...
  • Ó hIfearnáin, Tadhg; Ó Murchadha, Noel (Novus, 2011)
    This contribution describes the current state and status of Official Standard Irish, Caighdeán Oifigiúil na Gaeilge, the standard language variety of the first of the two official languages of Ireland. The other official ...
  • Kourousis, K.I; Saridis, G.J; Dafalias, Y.F (Transworld Research Network, 2007)
    The challenge of developing a generalized mathematical pattern to describe the plastic behaviour of metals, lead researchers to propose various constitutive models, especially in the field of cyclic plasticity, where ...
  • Ji, Zhanlin; Ganchev, Ivan; O'Droma, Maírtín; Zhao, Li; Zhang, Xuegi (MDPI, 2014)
    This paper presents the generic concept of using cloud-based intelligent car parking services in smart cities as an important application of the Internet of Things (IoT) paradigm. This type of services will become an ...
  • Walsh, Conor; Moles, Richard; O'Regan, Bernadette (MDPI, 2010)
    The need for global comparability has led to the recent standardization of ecological footprint methods. The use of global averages and necessary methodological assumptions has questioned the ability of the ecological ...
  • Gill, Edric; Arshak, Arousian; Arshak, Khalil; Korostynska, Olga (MDPI, 2007)
    This paper reports on the results from the investigation into the pH sensitivity of novel PANI/PVB/PS3 composite films. The conductimetric sensing mode was chosen as it is one of the most promising alternatives to the ...
  • Korostynska, Olga; Arshak, Khalil; Gill, Edric; Arshak, Arousian (MDPI, 2007)
    This paper reviews current state-of-the-art methods of measuring pH levels that are based on polymer materials. These include polymer-coated fibre optic sensors, devices with electrodes modified with pH-sensitive polymers, ...
  • Zawawi, Mohd Anwar; O'Keeffe, Sinéad; Lewis, Elfed (MDPI, 2013)
    This paper presents the implementation of power fluctuation compensation for an intensity-based optical fibre bending sensor aimed at monitoring human spine bending in a clinical environment. To compensate for the light ...
  • Sporea, Dan; Mihai, Laura; Vâţă, Ion; McCarthy, Denis; O'Keeffe, Sinéad; Lewis, Elfed (MDPI, 2014)
    The paper presents a set of tests carried out in order to evaluate the design characteristics and the operating performance of a set of six X-ray extrinsic optical fiber sensors. The extrinsic sensor we developed is intended ...
  • Davis, Laura M. (University of Limerick, 2014)
    With cardiovascular pathologies continuing to prevail, effective arterial replacements for the minimally invasive treatment of abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAAs) through endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) are still an ...
  • Dowling, Catríona M; Herranz Ors, Carmen; Kiely, Patrick A (Portland Press, 2014)
    Increasing our knowledge of the mechanisms regulating cell proliferation, migration and invasion are central to understanding tumour progression and metastasis. The local tumour microenvironment contributes to the ...
