  • Collins, Seán (School of Architecture, University of Limerick, 2012)
    Ground is fascinating in that it is something that every single person in the world experiences every day of their life in some form or another. For this reason it is crucial that architects have a clear understanding ...
  • Barry, Stephen (School of Architecture, University of Limerick, 2012)
    This text will look closely at the landscape, to understand the topography, ecology, climate and composition, exploring the relationship between land and water, mudfl ats, islands and the coastal boundary. It is my goal ...
  • Taylor, Adam; Galván-López, Edgar; Clarke, Siobhán; Cahill, Vinny (2012)
    A key change in the move to Smart Grids (SGs) is the use of dynamic pricing; this together with less reliable energy from renewable resources makes optimising electricity use highly complex. For smart-devices to function ...
  • Deshpande, Sadhana; Richardson, Ita (IEEE Computer Society, 2009)
    In Global Software Engineering Research, there have been many studies carried out from the perspective of the company who is outsourcing software development. However, very few studies focus on the companies to whom the ...
  • Polzer, Andreas; Merschen, Daniel; Botterweck, Goetz; Pleuss, Andreas; Thomas, Jacques; Hedenetz, Bernd; Kowalewski, Stefan (Springer, 2012)
    This paper presents a framework for modelbased product lines of embedded systems.We show how to integrate model-based product line techniques into a consistent framework that can deal with large product lines as they ...
  • Rubin, Julia; Kirshin, Andrei; Botterweck, Goetz; Chechik, Marsha (Association for Computing Machinery, 2012)
    We consider the problem of supporting effective code reuse as part of Software Product Line Engineering. Our approach is based on code forking – a practice commonly used in industry where new products are created by ...
  • Linehan, Eamonn; Clarke, Siobhán (DATE10, 2010)
    Recent advances in both the capabilities and accessibility of embedded systems have resulted in the potential to build increasingly complex systems that consequently are difficult to develop, test and deploy. Model-driven ...
  • Wiredu, Gamel O. (2007)
    In this paper, I analyse how and why reducing task interdependencies and increasing information interdependencies constitute worthy strategies for managing interdependencies in the face of global-distribution of resources. ...
  • Ali Babar, Muhammad; Chen, Lianping; Shull, Forrest (IEEE Computer Society, 2010)
    Variability management (VM) is a fundamental activity of software product line engineering (SPLE). VM explicitly represents software artifact variations for managing dependencies among SPL variants and support their ...
  • Doheny, Gavin (School of Architecture, University of Limerick, 2012)
    Manufacturing productive land is the basis for this thesis document. The document is split into five related sections each displaying an emphasis on manipulation of ground in a productive manner over time. O rganising ...
  • Ó Bolguidhir, Piaras (School of Architecture, University of Limerick, 2012)
    The reality of climate change, today, has conferred an unprecedented importance upon nature, weather and the atmosphere. Climate change is very real, perhaps not as apocalyptic as some have predicted, but nonetheless ...
  • Yilmaz, Murat; O'Connor, Rory V. (EuroSPI, 2012)
    We consider software development as an economic activity, where goods and services can be modeled as a resource constrained task allocation problem. This paper introduces a market based mechanism to overcome task ...
  • Clancy, Marie (University of Limerick, 2010)
    This thesis examines the formation of martensite in Ni-based super-alloys in both an alloy-coating system and in the bulk alloy, NiPtAl. The alloy-coating study was designed to test the hypothesis that an extra layer of ...
  • Al-Sharif, Ahmad H. (University of Limerick, 2011)
    Acrylic bone cements, based on poly(methylmethacrylate) (PMMA), have been widely used in orthopaedic surgery for the fixation and force distribution of joint prostheses in cemented arthroplasties. However, PMMA continues ...
  • Farrell, Ronan (School of Architecture, University of Limerick, 2011)
    The objective of this thesis is to explore theatrical space and the cultural relationship of materials as they are experienced by people in rural Ireland. The method involved the investigation of five handball alleys in ...
  • Yilmaz, Murat; O'Connor, Rory V. (PROFES 2010, 2010)
    In this paper, we introduce the novel approach of employing the economic mechanism design concept in the software development process, and investigate methods to create and adjust the incentives and disincentives of the ...
  • Morgado, Antonio; Liffiton, Mark; Marques-Silva, Joao (2012)
    Enumeration of Minimal Correction Sets (MCS) finds a wide range of practical applications, including the identification of Minimal Unsatisfiable Subsets (MUS) used in verifying the complex control logic of microprocessor ...
  • O'Hara, Niall; Slot, Marco; Marinescu, Dan; Čurn, Jan; Yang, Dawei; Asplund, Mikael; Bouroche, Mélanie; Clarke, Siobhán; Cahill, Vinny (IEEE Computer Society, 2012)
    Research and development in the field of intelligent transportation systems (ITS) can be costly in terms of both time and money. A significant initial and ongoing investment is often required in order to obtain a physical ...
  • Clarke, Paul; O'Connor, Rory V. (Springer, 2011)
    Software processes support the work of software development and software process improvement (SPI) is concerned with improving the operation of the software process. One of the primary reasons for conducting SPI is to ...
  • Tanner, D.A (University of Limerick, 1999)
    The finite element code ABAQUS is used to simulate the quenching of aluminium alloy 7010 in an attempt to predict the residual stress distribution that develops in simple shapes. All of the thermal and mechanical property ...
