  • Hudson, Sarah P; Tanner, D.A; Redington, W; Magner, Edmond; Hodnett, Benjamin K; Nakahara, S (Royal Society of Chemistry, 2006)
    TEM analysis of mesoporous materials is generally undertaken to give qualitative results. Accurate quantitative analysis is demonstrated in this study. A systematic image analysis of a powder form of a hexagonal mesoporous ...
  • Dolan, G.P; Flynn, Robert, Joseph; Tanner, D.A; Robinson, J.S (Maney Publishing, 2005)
    Determination of the time-temperature property C curve for aluminium alloys usually involves a large number of quenches and isothermal holds to calibrate a set of constants that describes the shape of the C curve for a ...
  • Robinson, J.S; Cudd, Richard L; Tanner, D.A; Dolan, G.P (Elsevier, 2001)
    7xxx (Al-Zn-Mg-Cu) alloys develop their strength, through the controlled decomposition (ageing) of a supersaturated solid solution to produce a precipitation hardened microstructure. The supersaturated solid solution is ...
  • Ron, Donit; Adams, David R; Baillie, George S; Long, Aideen; O'Connor, Rosemary; Kiely, Patrick A (BioMed Central, 2013)
    This perspective summarises the first and long overdue RACK1 meeting held at the University of Limerick, Ireland, May 2013, in which RACK1's role in the immune system, the heart and the brain were discussed and its ...
  • Adams, David R; Ron, Dorit; Kiely, Patrick A (BioMed Central, 2011)
    The Receptor for Activated C Kinase 1 (RACK1) is a member of the tryptophan-aspartate repeat (WD-repeat) family of proteins and shares significant homology to the β subunit of G-proteins (Gβ). RACK1 adopts a seven-bladed ...
  • Cummins, Niamh M; Day, J.C.C.; Wren, A.W.; Carroll, P; Murphy, N; Jakeman, P.M; Towler, M.R (Hindawi Publishing Corporation, 2010)
    Raman data from human fingernails has been analysed to determine if a relationship exists between spectral features and bone quality. Previous work demonstrated a relationship between the manually determined intensity of ...
  • Ryan, Liam (University of Limerick, 2013)
    Autotransporters are a family of outer membrane proteins in Gram-negative bacteria. This family of proteins has a conserved architecture consisting of the membrane domain and the extracellular domain which contains the ...
  • Tanner, D.A; Robinson, J.S (Elsevier, 2008)
    Closed die forgings manufactured from 2014 aluminium alloys have been subject to both standard and non-standard heat treatments in order to reduce the as-quenched residual stress magnitudes. Warm water (60 degrees C) and ...
  • McCarthy, Michael A; Padhi, G.S (University of Limerick, 2005)
    The goal of the project is to develop computational models for prediction of the initiation and growth of damage in composite bolted joints. Two approaches are being investigated. The first is based on a stiffness reduction ...
  • Robinson, J.S; Tanner, D.A (Maney Publishing, 2003)
    Residual stresses develop in the aluminium alloy 7010 when the material is quenched from the solution heat treatment temperature. Residual stress measurements have been made using the X-ray diffraction technique and a ...
  • Tanner, D.A; Robinson, J.S (Maney Publishing, 2006)
    The surface and through thickness residual stress magnitudes present in heat treated high strength aluminium alloy components are frequently reported to exceed the uniaxial yield stress of small specimens of the same alloy ...
  • Tanner, D.A; Robinson, J.S (Springer, 2000)
    Precipitation-hardened aluminum alloys gain their high strength through heat treatment involving a severe quenching operation, which can have the adverse effect of introducing residual stresses. The finite element code ...
  • Crilly, Suzanne; Magner, Edmond (Royal Society of Chemistry, 2010)
    Changes in the secondary structure of cytochrome c on immersion in methanol were monitored using circular dichroism. These changes occurred immediately in methanol, upon re-immersion in aqueous buffer, the secondary structure ...
  • Crilly, Suzanne; Magner, Edmond (Royal Society of Chemistry, 2009)
    The E degrees' of cytochrome c on a self-assembled monolayer (SAM) modified gold electrode increased by 300 mV immediately on immersion in methanol; on re-immersion of the electrode in aqueous buffer, the original faradaic ...
  • McCarthy, Michael A; Padhi, G.S; McCarthy, Conor T (University of Limerick, 2003)
    The project “A Study of Damage Initiation and Growth in Composite Bolted Joints” is funded under the Basic Research Grants Scheme 2002, jointly administered by Enterprise Ireland and the Irish Research Council for Science, ...
  • Li, D.F.; O'Dowd, Noel P.; Davies, Catrin M; Nikbin, K.M (Elsevier, 2010)
    In this review article, we examine the influence of prior deformation (prestrain) on the subsequent high temperature mechanical behaviour of engineering alloys. We review the observed effects at a macroscopic level in ...
  • Roberts, Adam P; Chandler, Michael; Courvalin, Patrice; Guédon, Gérard; Mullany, Peter; Pembroke, Tony J; Rood, Julian I; Smith, Jeffrey C; Summers, Anne O; Tsuda, Masataka; Berg, Douglas E (Elsevier, 2008)
    Transposable DNA elements occur naturally in the genomes of nearly all species of prokaryotes. A proposal for a uniform transposable element nomenclature was published prominently in the 1970s but is not, at present, ...
  • Geaney, Hugh; Dickinson, Calum; Weng, Weihao; Kiely, Christopher J.; Barrett, Christopher A.; Gunning, Robert D.; Ryan, Kevin M. (American Chemical Society, 2011)
    Here we show the impact of preferred growth directions and defects in the formation of complex Ge nanowire (NW) structures grown by a simple organic medium based synthesis. Various types of NWs 15 are examined including: ...
  • Bashar, Khalid; Healy, Donagh A; Browne, Leonard D; Kheirelseid, Elrasheid A. H.; Walsh, Michael T.; Clarke-Moloney, Mary; Burke, Paul E.; Kavanagh, Eamon G; Walsh, Stewart R (Public Library of Science, 2014)
    Introduction: A well-functioning arteriovenous fistula (AVF) is the best modality for vascular access in patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD) requiring haemodialysis (HD). However, AVFs' main disadvantage is the ...
  • Browne, Leonard D; Bashar, Khalid; Griffin, Philip; Kavanagh, Eamon G; Walsh, Stewart R; Walsh, Michael T. (Public Library of Science, 2015)
    Non-maturation and post-maturation venous stenosis are the primary causes of failure within arteriovenous fistulae (AVFs). Although the exact mechanisms triggering failure remain unclear, abnormal hemodynamic profiles ...
