  • Monasor, Miguel J; Noll, John; Vizcaíno, Aurora; Piattini, Mario; Beecham, Sarah (Association for Computing Machinery, 2014)
    Context: One of the chief challenges of Global Software Development (GSD) is for globally, culturally and linguistically diverse team members to communicate effectively. Failing to meet this challenge can lead to ...
  • Hanamy, John (University of Limerick, 2013)
    This thesis looks at the election that terminated the first government of the Irish Free State, and effectively the career of the party that formed that government. An analysis of the policies of Cumann na nGaedheal in ...
  • Sanyal, Ambarish; Bala, Tanushree; Ahmed, Shafaat; Singh, Ajay; Piterina, Anna Valentinova; McGloughlin, Timothy M.; Laffir, Fathima R.; Ryan, Kevin M. (Royal Society of Chemistry, 2009)
    We demonstrate the formation of water dispersed nanorod assemblies by phase transfer of semiconductor (CdS, CdSe, CdTe) nanorods from the organic to the aqueous using pluronic triblock copolymers. On phase transfer, the ...
  • Qin, Zhuang; Hu, Yaosheng; Ma, Yu; Lin, Wei; Luo, Xianping; Zhao, Wenhui; Sun, Weimin; Zhang, Daxin; Chen, Ziyin; Wang, Boran; Lewis, Elfed (2016)
    An inorganic scintillating material plastic optical fiber (POF) dosimeter for measuring ionizing radiation during radiotherapy applications is reported. It is necessary that an ideal dosimeter exhibits many desirable ...
  • NicGhabhann, Niamh (University of Limerick, 2014)
    This essay reflects on the process of curating WATERMARK, an exhibition celebrating 20 years of the Irish World Academy at the University of Limerick. It considers the work of artists David Lilburn, Aaron Lawless and Fiona ...
  • Robinson, Marguerite; Fowler, Andrew C; Alexander, A.J; O'Brien, Stephen B.G. (American Institute of Physics, 2008)
    We describe a simple model of a bubbly two-phase flow which is able to explain why waves propagate downward when a pint of Guinness is poured, and also how the waves are generated. Our theory involves a physically based ...
  • MacPhail, Ann; Halbert, John (Taylor and Francis, 2010)
    This study arose in response to a perceived need for additional teacher support for assessment in physical education and the limited focus in physical education pedagogy literature on the impact of Assessment for Learning ...
  • Baxter, Gareth J; Dorogovtsev, Sergey N; Mendes, José F.F; Cellai, Davide (Americann Physical Society, 2014)
    Bootstrap percolation is a simple but nontrivial model. It has applications in many areas of science and has been explored on random networks for several decades. In single-layer (simplex) networks, it has been recently ...
  • Bresciani, Riccardo; Butterfield, Andrew (Association for Computing Machinery, 2009)
    The Dolev-Yao model has been widely used in protocol verificaion and has been implemented in many protocol verifiers. There are strong assumptions underlying this model, such as perfect cryptography: the aim of the ...
  • McGloughlin, Timothy M.; Kavanagh, A.G. (Institute of Mechanical Engineers, 2000)
    The formation and development of wear is now widely accepted as one of the major concerns in the long-term survivorship of contemporary knee prostheses in vivo. This review examines the role of surface topography, third-body ...
  • Athukorala, Asitha C; De Pellegrin, Denis V; Battaglia, Ben T; Kourousis, Kyriakos I (Trans Tech Publications, 2016)
    Particle analysis methodology is presented, together with the morphology of the wear debris formed during rolling contact fatigue. Wear particles are characterised by their surface topography and in terms of wear mechanism. ...
  • Gunnigle, Patrick; Lavelle, Jonathan; Monaghan, Sinéad (Emerald Publishing Group Ltd.,, 2013)
    Purpose - This paper aims to examine the impact of the global financial crisis on human resource management (HRM) in multinational companies (MNCs) in Ireland. It focuses on four key areas of BR, namely staffing, pay and ...
  • Healy, Anna (School of Architecture, University of Limerick, 2011)
    I’ve been exploring the movement between and through built forms that can free them from being a spatial limit and instead allow them to become a temporal and spatial experience. This experience includes an awareness of ...
  • Lewis, David; Curran, Stephen; Feeney, Kevin; Etzioni, Zohar; Keeney, John; Way, Andy; Schäler, Reinhard (Association for Computing Machinery, 2009)
    Developments in Natural Language Processing technologies promise a variety of benefits to the localization industry, both in its current form in performing bulk enterprise-based localization and in the future in ...
  • Groba, Christin; Clarke, Siobhán (IEEE Computer Society, 2010)
    A platform-independent communication mechanism is essential for the seamless integration of embedded devices into the Web of Things. Web services provide for such communication, though there remains an open question as ...
  • Lang, Michael; Fitzgerald, Brian (Springer, London, 2007)
    This paper reports the findings of a detailed study of Web-based systems design (WBSD) practices in Ireland based on data collected over a 3-year period (2002–2005), the objectives of which were to (1) contribute towards ...
  • Risquez, Angelica; Moore, Sarah; Morley, Michael (SAGE Publications, 2008)
    This study investigates the process of adjustment among adult learners by focusing on their own perceptions as they make the transition to higher education in an Irish setting, in order to gain a richer understanding about ...
  • Sheehan, Barry (University of Limerick, 2016)
    As 2016 ends, it is hard to imagine that the Year of Irish Design finished a year ago. We are all reflecting on the activities and the achievements of that year, one of which was the establishment of this awardwinning journal, ...
  • de Eyto, Adam (University of Limerick, 2015)
    Iterations is a forum of considered reflection, critique and presentation for design practitioners and researchers. While there is plenty of noise and self-promotion in the fast moving digital world, this is perhaps the ...
  • White, P.J (Univesity of Limerick, 2015)
    It gives me great pleasure to introduce the second edition of Iterations. We continue from the success of Dr. Adam de Eyto’s work in initiating and launching this publication in June of this year. Quite simply, it’s a ...
