  • Tosi, Daniele; Macchi, Edoardo Gino; Braschi, Giovanni; Cigada, Alfredo; Gallati, Mario; Rossi, Sandro; Poeggel, Sven; Leen, Gabriel; Lewis, Elfed (Optical Society of America, 2014)
    We present a biocompatible, all-glass, 0.2 mm diameter, fiber-optic probe that combines an extrinsic Fabry–Perot interferometry and a proximal fiber Bragg grating sensor; the probe enables dual pressure and temperature ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • Asplund, Mikael; Manzoor, Atif; Bouroche, Mélanie; Clarke, Siobhán; Cahill, Vinny (Springer, 2012)
    Increasing demands on safety and energy e ciency will re- quire higher levels of automation in transportation systems. This in- volves dealing with safety-critical distributed coordination. In this paper we demonstrate ...
  • Janota, Mikolas; Botterweck, Goetz (2008)
    If we model a family of software applications with a feature model and an architecture model, we are describing the same subject from different perspectives. Hence, we are running the risk of inconsistencies. For instance, ...
  • Espinoza, Angelina; Botterweck, Goetz; Garbajosa, Juan (Association for Computing Machinery, 2010)
    Software Product Line (SPL) Engineering has to deal with interrelated, complex models such as feature and architecture models, hence traceability is fundamental to keep them consistent. Commonly, a traceability schema must ...
  • Vassev, Emil; Hinchey, Mike; Nixon, Paddy (IEEE Computer Society, 2010)
    Intelligent swarms draw their inspiration from biology where many simple entities act independently, but when grouped, they appear to be highly organized. NASA is currently investigating swarm-based technologies for the ...
