  • MacNally, Catriona (University of Limerick, 2015)
    Many studies have investigated whether non-verbal skills such as gesture are reliable early markers of later language delay, for example, Rowe and Goldin-Meadow (2009); Chiat and Roy (2008). Researchers such as Reilly et ...
  • 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 ...
  • Doody, Owen; Slevin, Eamonn; Taggart, Laurence (Mark Allen Healthcare, 2012)
    Focus groups are used by researchers in the social and behavioural sciences to explore phenomena and are accepted as a legitimate qualitative methodology. The primary goal of focus groups is to use interaction data resulting ...
  • Doody, Owen; Slevin, Eamonn; Taggart, Laurence (Mark Allen Healthcare, 2013)
    The use of focus group interviews as a means of qualitative data collection has gained popularity in health service research in recent years. Despite their popularity, analysing qualitative data—particularly focus-group ...
  • Roche, Adam; Coote, Susan (HSE, 2006)
    Reflective practice is a learning strategy that involves thinking critically about one’s actions and is a recognised cornerstone of continuing professional development or CPD.1 With the present climate of accountability, ...
  • Reid, M; Pomeroy, Michael 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 ...
  • Murphy, Fiona A; Lipp, Allyson; Powles, Diane L (John Wiley and Sons Ltd, 2010)
    This is the protocol for a review and there is no abstract. The objectives are as follows: Primary: To identify whether follow up by healthcare professionals or lay organisations at any time affects the psychological ...
  • Murphy, Fiona A; Lipp, Allysum; Powles, Diane L (John Wiley and Sons Ltd, 2012)
    Background Miscarriage is the premature expulsion of an embryo or fetus from the uterus up to 23 weeks of pregnancy and weighing up to 500 grams. International studies using diagnostic tools have identified that some ...
  • Scully, Paul; Reid, Orlaith; Macken, Alan P; Healy, Mark; Saunders, Jean; Leddin, Des; Cullen, Walter; Dunne, Colum; O'Gorman, Clodagh S (Cambridge University Press, 2016)
    Objective: The link between childhood obesity and both television viewing and television advertising have previously been examined. We sought to investigate the frequency and type of food and beverage placements in ...
  • Ó Muiris, Eoghan (University of Limerick, 2014)
    The pressures arising at interfaces between living tissue and pressure applying parts are of increasing interest in medical and veterinary science. This interest arises primarily out of the need to control these pressures ...
  • Svärd, Michael; Rasmuson, Åke C (American Chemical Society, 2009)
    Molecular simulation is increasingly used by chemical engineers and industrial chemists in process and product development. In particular, the possibility to predict the structure and stability of potential polymorphs of ...
  • 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 ...
  • Hong, Hui (University of Limerick, 2014)
    This thesis is concerned with the predictability of equity market performance in China while accounting for the possibility of model instability. The study of return predictability, particularly that on time-varying ...

  • 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 ...
  • Bresciani, Riccardo; Butterfield, Andrew (IEEE Computer Society, 2009)
    When some agents want to communicate through a media stream (for example voice or video), the Real Time Protocol (RTP) is used. This protocol does not provide encryption, so it is necessary to use Secure RTP (SRTP) to ...
