  • Mahdi, Abdulhussain E.; Jafer, Essa (World Scientific and Engineering Academy and Society (WSEAS), 2004)
    A new adaptive speech enhancement system, which utilizes a second-generation wavelet transform (SGWT) decomposition and a novel adaptive subband thresholding technique, is presented. The adaptive thresholding technique ...
  • Ryan, Michael P.; Armshaw, Patricia; Pembroke, Tony J. (Formatex, 2017)
    The integrative conjugative elements, ICE s SXT and R391 are the prototypes of a group of gram negative integrative elements known as the SXT/R391 group. R391 was identified in a clinical isolate of Providencia in the ...
  • McGloughlin, Timothy M.; Doyle, Barry J. (Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 2010)
    Abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) rupture remains a significant cause of death in the developed world. Current treatment approaches rely heavily on the size of the aneurysm to decide on the most appropriate time for clinical ...
  • Kleineberg, Oliver (University of Limerick, 2014)
    Networked control systems have been widely used in Industrial Automation since the latter part of the 20st century. Such networks have evolved from small systems with proprietary and slow Fieldbus technology to a much ...
  • Leahy, Martin J.; O'Doherty, Jim; Nilsson, Gert E.; Henricson, Joakim; Anderson, Chris; Sjoberg, Folke (SPIE—The International Society for Optical Engineering, 2007)
    A low-cost, noninvasive means of imaging red blood cells shows promise in applications aimed at assessing tissue viability.
  • Mahdi, Abdulhussain E.; Picovici, Dorel (Springer, 2010)
    This article proposes a new output-based method for non-intrusive assessment of speech quality of voice communication systems and evaluates its performance. The method requires access to the processed (degraded) speech ...
  • Omerdić, Edin; Toal, Daniel; Finn, Paddy (European Association for the Development of Renewable Energies, Environment and Power Quality, 2010)
    This paper describes a set of novel aiding tools and technologies for system integration, deployment, monitoring and maintenance of ocean energy devices. The main component of the system is smart remotely operated vehicle ...

M.; Howard, Robert; Pasquier, Florence; Borjesson-Hanson, Anne; Tsolaki, Magda; Lucca, Ugo; William Molloy, D; Coen, Robert; Riepe, Matthias W.; Kálmán, János; Kenny, Rose Anne; Cregg, Fiona; O'Dwyer, Sarah; Walsh, Cathal Dominic; Adams, Jessica; Banzi, Rita; Breuilh, Laetitia; Daly, Leslie; Hendrix, Suzanne; Aisen, Paul; Gaynor, Siobhan; Sheikhi, Ali; Taekema, Diana G.; Verhey, Frans R.; Nemni, Raffaello; Nobili, Flavio; Franceschi, Massimo; Frisoni, Giovanni; Zanetti, Orazio; Konsta, Anastasia; Anastasios, Orologas; Nenopoulou, Styliani; Tsolaki-Tagaraki, Fani; Pakaski, Magdolna; Dereeper, Olivier; de la Sayette, Vincent; Sénéchal, Olivier; Lavenu, Isabelle; Devendeville, Agnés; Calais, Gauthier; Crawford, Fiona; Mullan, Michael (Public Library of Science, 2018)
    Background This study reports the findings of the first large-scale Phase III investigator-driven clinical trial to slow the rate of cognitive decline in Alzheimer disease with a dihydropyridine (DHP) calcium channel ...
  • Lyons, G.M.; Arshak, Khalil; Cavanagh, Leon M.; Gaidan, Ibrahim; Moore, Edward G.; Clifford, S.A.; Phelan, R.; Cunniffe, Colm; Harris, John A. (IEEE Computer Society, 2004)
    The response of screen-printed thick-films of NiO/TiO2 to organic solvent vapours was studied. It was found that these films displayed a significant resistance change in response to the vapours even at room temperature. ...
  • Hagan, Kerry L (2013)
    Morphons and Bions is a real-time, computer-generated work that uses white noise as the fundamental synthesis component combined with classical synthesis techniques. Random and stochastic processes control the synthesis ...
  • Murray, Derek M (University of Limerick, 2013)
    The design specifications for power converters are getting continuously tighter, keeping pace with the ever-increasing power requirements of the loads they supply. A step-down DC-DC converter used in modern computing ...
  • Mahdi, Abdulhussain E.; Faggion, Lorenzo (IOP Publishing, 2011)
    This paper describes a new low-cost, low-noise displacement current sensor developed for non-contact measurements of human biopotentials and well suited for detection of human presence applications. The sensor employs a ...
  • Timm, Ulrich (University of Limerick, 2011)
    During the perioperative period, which includes the period before surgery (preoperative), during surgery (intraoperative) and after surgery (postoperative), it is essential to measure diagnostic parameters such as: blood ...
  • Timm, Ulrich; Leen, Gabriel; Lewis, Elfed; McGrath, D.; Kraitl, J.; Ewald, H. (Elsevier, 2010)
    Hemoglobin (Hb) is an important component of red blood cells. The primary function of Hb is to transport oxygen from the lungs to the body tissues and to carry carbon dioxide back to the lungs from the body tissues. The ...
  • Chwastyk, Mateusz; Vera, Andrés M.; Galera-Prat, Albert; Gunnoo, Melissabye; Thompson, Damien; Carrión-Vázquez, Mariano; Cieplak, Marek (AIP Publishing, 2017)
    We combine experimental and theoretical methods to assess the effect of a set of point mutations on c7A, a highly mechanostable type I cohesin module from scaffoldin CipA from Clostridium thermocellum. We propose a novel ...
  • Al-tawarah, Yasin; MacKenzie, Gilbert (IWSM, 2003)
    In longitudinal studies with a set of continuous or ordinal repeated response variables it may be convenient to summarize the outcome as a threshold event. Then, the time to this event becomes of interest. In this paper ...
  • MacKenzie, Gilbert; Do Ha, II; Lee, Youngjo (IWSM, 2003)
    Correlated survival times may be modelled by introducing a random effect, or frailty, component into the hazard function. For multivariate survival data we extend a non-PH model, the generalized time-dependent logistic (GTDL) ...
  • MacKenzie, Gilbert; Al-tawarah, Yasin; Blagojevic, Milisa; Burke, Kevin (IWSM, 2018)
    Non-PH parametric survival modelling is developed within the frame- work of the multiple logistic function. The family considered comprises three basic models: (a) a PH model, (b) an accelerated life model and (c) a model ...
  • Al-tawarah, Yasin; MacKenzie, Gilbert (IWSM, 2005)
    In this paper we investigate the use of accelerated Weibull hazard model. We compare it with Logistic Accelerated Hazard model. The models are used to analyze survival data from the Northern Ireland lung cancer study ...
