  • O'Callaghan, Clare (School of Architecture, University of Limerick, 2013)
    The aim of this thesis is cohesively question how we build. As a constructed thought it pauses at the moment before the raw matter of the Earth is transformed into sociological object and attempts to extrapolate a broader ...
  • Collins, Seán (School of Architecture, University of Limerick, 2012)
    Ground is fascinating in that it is something that every single person in the world experiences every day of their life in some form or another. For this reason it is crucial that architects have a clear understanding ...
  • Barry, Stephen (School of Architecture, University of Limerick, 2012)
    This text will look closely at the landscape, to understand the topography, ecology, climate and composition, exploring the relationship between land and water, mudfl ats, islands and the coastal boundary. It is my goal ...
  • Ryan, Veronica (University of Limerick, 2018)
    This research study investigated student performance in mathematics during the transition from primary to post-primary school. Academic achievement in mathematics was measured using a standardised test at the end of sixth ...
  • Doheny, Gavin (School of Architecture, University of Limerick, 2012)
    Manufacturing productive land is the basis for this thesis document. The document is split into five related sections each displaying an emphasis on manipulation of ground in a productive manner over time. O rganising ...
  • Ó Bolguidhir, Piaras (School of Architecture, University of Limerick, 2012)
    The reality of climate change, today, has conferred an unprecedented importance upon nature, weather and the atmosphere. Climate change is very real, perhaps not as apocalyptic as some have predicted, but nonetheless ...
  • Clancy, Marie (University of Limerick, 2010)
    This thesis examines the formation of martensite in Ni-based super-alloys in both an alloy-coating system and in the bulk alloy, NiPtAl. The alloy-coating study was designed to test the hypothesis that an extra layer of ...
  • Al-Sharif, Ahmad H. (University of Limerick, 2011)
    Acrylic bone cements, based on poly(methylmethacrylate) (PMMA), have been widely used in orthopaedic surgery for the fixation and force distribution of joint prostheses in cemented arthroplasties. However, PMMA continues ...
  • Farrell, Ronan (School of Architecture, University of Limerick, 2011)
    The objective of this thesis is to explore theatrical space and the cultural relationship of materials as they are experienced by people in rural Ireland. The method involved the investigation of five handball alleys in ...
  • McInerney, Niall (University of Limerick, 2019)
    In the first part of this thesis, mathematical models describing solvent and drug diffusion in glassy polymers are investigated using both numerical and approximate methods. These models are analysed using formal ...
  • O'Keeffe, Gary J. (University of Limerick, 2018)
    Solar-thermal collectors capture solar energy and convert it into heat energy. Several types of solar-thermal collectors have been used to harness solar radiation in both residential, electricity generation, and industrial ...
  • Campbell, Tríona (University of Limerick, 2015)
    Femoral artery bypass grafts have a predilection for failure at the distal anastomosis due to restenosis, within a short period of time, the cause of which has been attributed to altered haemodynamics. This study proposes ...
  • Twohig, Eoghan (University of Limerick, 2012)
    The traditional process of metallic wire and rod production pulls a wire/rod through a die to reduce its diameter in successive steps. The considerable die wear at the tool-die interface coupled with the additional lubrication ...
  • Obande, Winifred O. (University of Limerick, 2016)
    The use of traditional two-dimensional (2D) fibre preforms can be associated with poor out-of-plane and interlaminar mechanical performance, particularly in response to impact loads. Such preforms comprise multiple plies ...
  • Hilliard, Alan (School of Architecture, University of Limerick, 2012)
    My thesis investigations are based on ideas of threshold and mediation in architecture. Movement or mediation between distinct places implies thresholds; skin, walls, doors, bridges etc. This mediating geography describes ...
  • Mallen, Sarah (University of Limerick, 2017)
    Currently, the treatment of certain antimicrobial infections is hindered by the increase in resistance acquired by pathogenic species of bacteria, fungi and viruses. Thus, there is a growing need for novel antimicrobial ...
  • Reimann, Wiebke (University of Limerick, 2012)
    Carbon dioxide concentrations in the atmosphere have risen since the onset of the Industrial Revolution. It is a potent green house gas contributing to climate change. One of the biggest carbon dioxide emitters are large ...
  • Foley, Sarah (Univesity of Limerick, 2018)
    This thesis describes the development of a range of metal oxide, metal chalcogenide and metal alloy composites, using metal-organic materials (MOMs) as sacrificial precursors and their application as electrode materials ...
  • Fleury, Sean (School of Architecture, University of Limerick, 2015)
    ''Disorientated, intimidated, mesmerized......neon signs, icons, logos, pictures, flashing, glowing, sparkling, my journey along this street was an experience I've not had before. The sheer overload of information, each ...
  • Reidy, Clare (School of Architecture, University of Limerick, 2011)
    The aim of this thesis is to re-imagine how to treat the river’s edge and introduce new realistic and thoughtful ideas based on different ways of working with water that can help diminish the damage done by the power of ...
