  • 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 ...
  • Carroll, P; Murphy, N; Donnelly, R; Barry, D; Barrett, E; Jakeman, P.M; Loughnane, M (National Institute of Health Sciences, 2003)
    Skeletal tissue is in a constant state of flux, remodelling itself to changing physical demands via the bone multicellular unit (BMU). At any one time there are approximately 2m BMUs active on the mature skeleton that ...
  • Furlong, Laura-Anne M; Harrison, Andrew J. (Taylor & Francis, 2009)
    Whole-body vibration (WBV) has been shown to improve performance in stretch-shortening cycle (SSC) activities; this is dependent on musculotendinous stiffness prior to the concentric phase of movement (Anderson, 1996, ...
  • Furlong, Laura-Anne M; Harrison, Andrew J. (International Society of Biomechanics, 2009)
    Whole-body vibration (WBV) has been shown to increase jump height, power and strength but the mechanisms behind these changes are not fully understood. The aim of this study was to investigate the influence of WBV on elastic ...
  • Watts, M; Powys, L; O'Hora, C; Kinsella, Stephen; Saunders, Jean; Reid, Louise; Finucane, Paul (Irish Medical Organization, 2011)
    Acute Medical Assessment Units (AMAUs) are being proposed as an alternative to congested Emergency Departments (EDs) for the assessment of patients with a range of acute medical problems. We retrospectively reviewed the ...
  • Vidgen, Richard; Wang, Xiaofeng (2004)
    Information system development (ISD) is being conducted in an increasingly turbulent and complex environment. New forms of ISD are emerging, such as open source software and agile methods but theory is needed to explain ...
  • Arshak, Khalil; Adepoju, Francis (IEEE Computer Society, 2007)
    In this paper, we discuss system and method of determining the real-time location of an omni-directional diagnostic radio frequency (RF) system while the object (transmitter) is moving freely inside an inaccessible organ. ...
  • Dobson, Simon; Neely, Steve; Nixon, Paddy (Springer, 2006)
    The increasingly dynamic nature of resource discovery and binding in modern large-scale distributed and mobile systems poses significant challenges for existing middleware platforms. Future platforms must provide strong ...
  • Salehie, Mazeiar; Pasquale, Liliana; Omoronyia, Inah; Nuseibeh, Bashar (2012)
    Despite the benefits offered by smart grids, energy producers, distributors and consumers are increasingly concerned about possible security and privacy threats. These threats typically manifest themselves at runtime ...
