  • Bracken, Fintan (2014)
    Introduction: In recent years, the growth of published health-related research articles has increased substantially. As a result there is a huge challenge for authors to get themselves and their research papers noticed by ...
  • Moloney, Eleanor (School of Architecture, University of Limerick, 2011)
    As architecture is a culprit in physically detaching people from their surrounding environment I hope to create an architecture of layers each enclosing a particular climate or atmosphere expressed through a specific use ...
  • Shiels, Paul G; McGlynn, Liane M; MacIntyre, Alan; Johnson, Paul C. D.; Batty, David G; Burns, Harry; Cavanagh, Jonathan; Deans, Kevin A; Ford, Ian; McConnachie, Alex; McGinty, Agnes; McLean, Jennifer S; Miller, Keith; Sattar, Naveed; Tannahill, Carol; Nathan, Yoga; Packard, Chris J (Public Library of Science, 2011)
    Background: It has previously been hypothesized that lower socio-economic status can accelerate biological ageing, and predispose to early onset of disease. This study investigated the association of socio-economic and ...
  • Edwards, Claire; Harold, Gillian; Kilcommins, Shane (National Disability AuthorityNational Disability Authority, 2012)

  • Han, Yi; Fitzpatrick, John; Murphy, Liam; Dunne, Jonathan (IEEE Computer Society, 2013)
    Voice over IP (VoIP) now has tremendous influence on the telecommunication market with its flexibility and price advantage. Users of VoIP expect call quality to be as good as, if not better than the traditional Public ...
  • Gleeson, James P.; Melnik, Sergey; Ward, Jonathan A; Porter, Mason A; Murcha, Peter J (American Physical Society, 2012)
    Mean-field analysis is an important tool for understanding dynamics on complex networks. However, surprisingly little attention has been paid to the question of whether mean-field predictions are accurate, and this is ...
  • LeGear, Andrew; Buckley, Jim; Cleary, Brendan; Collins, J.J. (IEEE Computer Society, 2005)
    Identifying elements of existing software that are reused within a system may provide maintainers with valuable insights during system evolution. This paper evaluates an extension of software reconnaissance that can be ...
  • Lenihan, Helena (2010)
    With high profile Multinational Enterprise (MNE) job losses being a regular news feature in Ireland of late, beginning largely with the first big announcement of the transfer of the production facility of Dell in Limerick ...
  • Dobson, Simon (IEEE Computer Society, 2007)
    Autonomic systems present unique design challenges, in that their individual adaptive components may interact in complex ways which defeat traditional approaches to design, analysis and implementation. We argue for a ...
  • Ward, Jonathan A; Fowler, Andrew C (SpringerOpen, 2016)
    Purpose: The polishing of cut lead glass crystal is effected through the dowsing of the glass in a mixture of two separate acids, which between them etch the surface and as a result cause it to be become smooth. In order ...
  • Lynch, Raymond; Hennessy, Jennifer; Gleeson, Jim (Taylor & Francis, 2013)
    This paper presents an argument for the development of an Irish Chartered Teacher initiative which would acknowledge and accredit the professionalism of experienced and accomplished teachers. It begins by examining the ...
  • Tierney, Áine P.; Dumont, Douglas; Callanan, Anthony; McGloughlin, Timothy M. (IEEE Computer Society, 2009)
    A method for reliable, noninvasive estimation of Abdominal Aortic Aneurysms (AAA) wall mechanics may be a useful clinical tool for rupture prediction. An in vitro AAA model was developed from an excised porcine aorta, ...
  • Ryan, Sharon; O'Connor, Rory V. (Elsevier, 2013)
    Context: Sharing expert knowledge is a key process in developing software products. Since expert knowledge is mostly tacit, the acquisition and sharing of tacit knowledge along with the development of a transactive memory ...
  • O'Sullivan, Kieran (Irish Society of Chartered Physiotherapists, 2007)
    Dislocation is the most common injury affecting the acromioclavicu lar (AC) joint. Six grades of AC joint dislocation are currently described, based on the degree and direction, of displacement. Complete rupture of ...
  • McCreesh, Karen; Crotty, James M; Lewis, Jeremy S (BMJ Publishing, 2015)
    Background: Narrowing of the subacromial space has been noted as a common feature of rotator cuff (RC) tendinopathy, and has been implicated in the development of symptoms, and forms the basis for some surgical and ...
  • Neasta, Jeremie; Fiorenza, Anna; He, Dao-Yao; Phamluong, Khanhky; Kiely, Patrick A (Public Library of Science, 2016)
    RACK1 is a scaffolding protein that contributes to the specificity and propagation of several signaling cascades including the cAMP pathway. As such, RACK1 participates in numerous cellular functions ranging from cell ...
  • Grimes, Ronan; Walsh, Ed J; Walsh, Pat (Elsevier, 2010)
    Power dissipation levels in mobile phones continue to increase due to gaming, higher power applications, and increased functionality associated with the internet. The current cooling methodologies of natural convection and ...
  • Halpin, Brendan; Hill, John (Combat Poverty Agency, 2008)
    Active Labour Market Policies (ALMPs), which provide training and subsidised employment to the unemployed, are an important part of Ireland’s welfare state. While a good deal of existing research is concerned with the ...
  • McKeever, Susan; Ye, Juan; Coyle, Lorcan; Bleakley, Chris M; Dobson, Simon (2010)
    The ability to identify the behavior of people in a home is at the core of Smart Home functionality. Such environments are equipped with sensors that unobtrusively capture information about the occupants. Reasoning mechanisms ...
