  • Yates, Rebecca Yolande (University of Limerick, 2014)
    Many software developers struggle to understand code written by others, leading to increased maintenance costs. Research on program comprehension to date has primarily focused on individual developers attempting to ...
  • Trubetskaya, Anna; Beckmann, Gert; Wadenbäck, Johan; Holm, Jens Kai; Velaga, Sitaram P.; Weber, Roman (Elsevier, 2017)
    This study aims to provide a geometrical description of biomass particles that can be used in combustion models. The particle size of wood and herbaceous biomass was compared using light microscope, 2D dynamic imaging, ...
  • Bashar, Khalid; Healy, Donagh A.; Elsheikh, Sawsan; Browne, Leonard D.; Walsh, Michael T.; Clarke-Moloney, Mary; Burke, Paul E.; Kavanagh, Eamon G.; Walsh, Stewart R. (Public Library of Science, 2015)
    A brachiobasilic arteriovenous fistula (BB-AVF) can provide access for haemodialysis in patients who are not eligible for a more superficial fistula. However, it is unclear whether one or two-stage BB-AVF is the best option ...
  • Mulrooney, Jim; Clifford, John; Fitzpatrick, Colin (IOP Publishing, 2005)
    Existing automotive sensors do not quantify the levels of pollutants entering the atmosphere; instead they merely indicate that pollution is occurring. However to meet European legislation on emission control, it is necessary ...
  • O'Rafferty, Simon; de Eyto, Adam; Lewis, Huw J. (Design Research Society, 2016)
       This paper explores what the distinctive value of design may be in a policy context. The paper broadly supports the contention by Smith and Otto (2014) that design offers a distinct way of knowing ...
  • Indino, Ivano (University of Limerick, 2017)
    Ivano Indino Scan testing has been the preferred method used for testing large digital integrated circuits for many decades and many electronic design automation (EDA) tools vendors provide support for inserting scan ...
  • Sharif, Khaironi Yatim (University of Limerick, 2012)
    Several authors have proposed information seeking as an important perspective for the study of software maintenance and evolution, and have characterized information seeking empirically in commercial software evolution ...
  • Barlas, Panagiotis; Heavey, Cathal; Dagkakis, Georgios (D A A A M International Vienna, 2015)
    Discrete Event Simulation (DES) is one of the most effective tools for planning, designing and improving material flows in production. One of the main weaknesses of operating DES is the exertion needed and costs spent on ...
  • Buron, Javier ( Fab Lab Limerick Director, School of Architecture, University of Limerick); Sánchez, Magda (Founder of Colaborativa.eu, Design, Technology and Social Action Agency) (ITERATIONS, 2015)
    Self-build as a social tool: Communities need collective spaces to gather for group activities and social support. The lack of a collective space to meet, discuss and perform group activities, especially at the early ...
  • Meisel, Hans; Fitzgerald, Richard J. (Cambridge University Press, 2000)
    Opioid agonistic and antagonistic peptides which are inactive within the sequence of the precursor milk proteins can be released and thus activated by enzymatic proteolysis, for example during gastrointestinal digestion ...
  • Zhernovaya, Olga (University of Limerick, 2015)
    Light scattering in biological tissues and blood leads to a reduction in imaging spatial resolution, imaging depth and contrast of optical imaging techniques. Refractive index mismatch between erythrocytes and blood plasma ...
  • Chiavaroli, Stefano; Newport, David; Woulfe, Bernie (American Institute of Physics, 2010)
    A barrier in scaling laboratory processes into automated microfluidic devices has been the transfer of lab based assays: where engineering meets biological protocol. One basic requirement is to reliably and accurately ...
  • Woulfe, Peter; Sullivan, F.J.; Kam, Wern; O'Keeffe, Sinéad (Optical Society of America, 2020)
    An optical fiber sensor for monitoring low dose radiation is presented. The sensor, based on radiation sensitive scintillation material, terbium doped gadolinium oxysulphide (Gd2O2S:Tb), is embedded in a cavity of 700μm ...
  • Yan, Yongji; Zhang, Xu; Li, Haopeng; Ma, Yu; Xie, Tianci; Qin, Zhuang; Liu, Shuangqiang; Sun, Weimin; Lewis, Elfed (MDPI, 2018)
    A novel ultraviolet (UV) optical fiber sensor (UVOFS) based on the scintillating material La2O2S:Eu has been designed, tested, and its performance compared with other scintillating materials and other conventional UV ...
  • Fitzpatrick, Colin; Lewis, Elfed; Al-Shamma'a, AI; Lucas, J. (International Society for Optics and Photonics, 2001)
    Low-pressure mercury lamps are commonly used for germicidal applications such as water and wastewater sterilisation. The germicidal effect is due to the emission of light at 254nm, which leads to the destruction of most ...
  • Macchi, Edoardo Gino; Tosi, Daniele; Braschi, Giovanni; Gallati, Mario; Cigada, Alfredo; Busca, Giorgio; Lewis, Elfed (SPIE: The International Society for Optics and Photonics, 2014)
    Radiofrequency thermal ablation (RFTA) induces a high-temperature field in a biological tissue having steep spatial (up to 6 degrees C/mm) and temporal (up to 1 degrees C/s) gradients. Applied in cancer care, RFTA produces ...
  • Sporea, Dan; Sporea, Adelina; O'Keeffe, Sinéad; McCarthy, Denis; Lewis, Elfed (INTECH, 2012)
    By their very nature, optical fibers and, by extension, intrinsic and extrinsic optical fiberbased sensors are promising devices to be used in very different and complex environments considering their characteristics ...
  • Duraibabu, Dinesh Babu; Poeggel, Sven; Omerdić, Edin; Capocci, Romano; Lewis, Elfed; Newe, Thomas; Leen, Gabriel; Toal, Daniel; Dooly, Gerard (MDPI, 2017)
    A miniature sensor for accurate measurement of pressure (depth) with temperature compensation in the ocean environment is described. The sensor is based on an optical fibre Extrinsic Fabry-Perot interferometer (EFPI) ...
  • Newe, Thomas; O'Connell, Eoin; Meere, Damien; Yuan, Hongwei; Leen, Gabriel; O'Keeffe, Sinéad; Lewis, Elfed (Society of Photo-optical Instrumentation Engineers (SPIE), 2016)
