  • Kiely, Maeve; Kiely, Patrick A (MDPI, 2015)
    Protein Phosphatase 2A (PP2A) is a major serine/threonine phosphatase in cells. It consists of a catalytic subunit (C), a structural subunit (A), and a regulatory/variable B-type subunit. PP2A has a critical role to play ...
  • Vynnycky, Michael; Masuda, Y (American Institute of Physics, 2013)
    The problem of fast viscous steady Rayleigh-Bénard convection in a rectangular enclosure is revisited using asymptotic and numerical methods. There are two generic cases: in the first, there is zero shear stress at all ...
  • Kyrke-Smith, T.M; Katz, R.F; Fowler, Andrew (Interntional Glaciological Society, 2013)
    One challenge in improving our understanding of ice-stream dynamics is to develop models of the spatial and temporal transition from ice-sheet to ice-stream flow. We address this with a new, vertically integrated, higher-order ...
  • Egan, Brian; McCarthy, Michael A; Frizzell, R.M.; McCarthy, C.T. (Elsevier, 2015)
    Accurate models of dynamic structural failure are important for crashworthiness studies. To date, catastrophic failure of dynamically-loaded composite bolted joints has been studied using global or stacked shell element ...
  • Lynch, Deirdre; Low, Fiona; Henihan, Anne Marie; Garcia, Alberto; Kwapinski, Witold; Zhang, Lian; Leahy, James J (American Chemical Society, 2014)
    In this study, we have examined the behavior of heavy metals during fluidized bed combustion of poultry litter. Heavy metals examined include As, Cd, Co, Cr, Cu, Hg, Mn, Mo, Ni, Pb, V, and Zn. Solid and gaseous streams ...
  • Gleeson, James P. (American Physical Society, 2008)
    The mean size of unordered binary avalanches on infinite directed random networks may be determined using the damage propagation function introduced by [B. Samuelsson and J. E. S. Socolar, Phys. Rev. E 74, 036113 (2006)]. ...
  • Walsh, Ed J; Davies, Mark R.D; McEligot, Donald M (MDPI, 2004)
    Boundary layer transition is a critical parameter in the design of fluid flow systems. This situation is due to the dramatic change in both entropy production and heat transfer that accompanies it. It is well recognized ...
  • Bashar, Khalid; Healy, Donagh A; Elsheikh, Sawsan; Browne, Leonard D; Walsh, Michael T; Clarke-Moloney, Mary; Burke, Paul E; Kavanagh, Eamon G; Walsh, Stewart R (Public Library of Science, 2015)
    A brachiobasilic arteriovenous fistula (BB-AVF) can provide access for haemodialysis in patients who are not eligible for a more superficial fistula. However, it is unclear whether one or two-stage BB-AVF is the best option ...
  • Pastorino, Laura; Dellacasa, Elena; Noor, Mohamed R; Souliman, Tewfik; Bianchini, Paolo; D’Autilia, Francesca; Antipov, Alexei; Diaspro, Alberto; Tofail, Syed A.M.; Ruggiero, Carmelina (Public Library of Science, 2014)
    Cell-sized polyelectrolyte capsules functionalized with a redox-driven proton pump protein were assembled for the first time. The interaction of polyelectrolyte microcapsules, fabricated by electrostatic layer-by-layer ...
  • Serrano-Sanguinetti, Nancy (University of Limerick, 2000)
    Poly( d,l lactide-co-glycolide) copolymers are used extensively in biomedical implants due to their outstanding biocompatibility, bioresorbability and the fact that wide ranges of physical, thermal, mechanical and ...
  • O'Shea, Sean D; Smith, Imelda M; McCabe, Olive M; Cronin, Michelle M; Walsh, Dominic M; O'Connor, William T. (MDPI, 2008)
    Extensive evidence supports an important role for soluble oligomers of the amyloid. beta-protein (A beta) in Alzheimer's Disease pathogenesis. In the present study we combined intracerebroventricular (icv) injections with ...
  • Zeglinski, Zacek; Svärd, Michael; Karpinska, Jolanta; Kuhs, Manuel; Rasmuson, Åke C (Elsevier, 2014)
    In this paper we have explored the relationship between surface structure and crystal growth and morphology of fenoxycarb (FC). Experimental vs. predicted morphologies/face indices of fenoxycarb crystals are presented. ...
  • Kuhs, Manuel; Zeglinski, Jacek; Rasmuson, Åke C (American Chemical Society, 2014)
    Nearly 1800 induction time experiments have been performed on crystal nucleation of fenoxycarb in isopropanol to investigate the influence of solution pretreatment. For each preheating temperature and preheating time, ...
  • Kuhs, Manuel; Svärd, Michael; Rasmuson, Åke C (Elsevier, 2013)
    The solubility of fenoxycarb has been determined between 278 and 318 K in several organic solvents. The solid phase at equilibrium and some indication of polymorphism has been properly examined by powder XRD, DSC, Raman ...
  • Hackett, Adam W.; Melnik, Sergey; Gleeson, James P. (American Physical Society, 2011)
    We present an analytical approach to determining the expected cascade size in a broad range of dynamical models on the class of random networks with arbitrary degree distribution and nonzero clustering introduced previously ...
  • Hackett, Adam W.; Gleeson, James P. (American Physical Society, 2013)
    We present an analytical approach to determining the expected cascade size in a broad range of dynamical models on the class of highly clustered random graphs introduced by Gleeson [J. P. Gleeson, Phys. Rev. E 80, 036107 ...
  • Melnik, Sergey; Ward, Jonathan A; Gleeson, James P.; Porter, Mason A (American Institute of Physics, 2013)
    The spread of ideas across a social network can be studied using complex contagion models, in which agents are activated by contact with multiple activated neighbors. The investigation of complex contagions can provide ...
  • Melnik, Sergey; Porter, Mason A; Mucha, Peter J; Gleeson, James P. (American Institute of Physics, 2014)
    We develop a new ensemble of modular random graphs in which degree-degree correlations can be different in each module, and the inter-module connections are defined by the joint degree-degree distribution of nodes for each ...
  • Melnik, Sergey; Hackett, Adam W.; Porter, Mason A; Mucha, Peter J; Gleeson, James P. (American Physical Society, 2011)
    We demonstrate that a tree-based theory for various dynamical processes operating on static, undirected networks yields extremely accurate results for several networks with high levels of clustering. We find that such a ...
  • Cellai, Davide; López, Eduardo; Zhou, Jie; Gleeson, James P.; Bianconi, Ginestra (American Physical Society, 2013)
    From transportation networks to complex infrastructures, and to social and communication networks, a large variety of systems can be described in terms of multiplexes formed by a set of nodes interacting through different ...
