  • Moriarty, Briain (School of Architecture, University of Limerick, 2012)
    This essay initially examines how the body experiences place, and whether through an analysis of this, a new way of adding value to spaces of supermodernity can occur. Spaces of supermodernity include airports, motorways, ...
  • Brosnan, Stephanie (University of Limerick, 2011)
    Total soil respiration (RTOT) has two components; heterotrophic (RH) and autotrophic (RA) respiration. We aim to partition the components of RTOT in a beech (Fagus sylvatica L.) forest using a trenching experiment. The ...
  • Wijaya, Christian (University of Limerick, 2014)
    Aortic tissue exhibits highly nonlinear elastic and anisotropic mechanical behaviour. Those characteristics are provided by its constituents such as collagen and elastin. Yet the mechanisms of deformation of this material ...
  • Sullivan, Daniel K. (University of Limerick, 2010)
    This thesis examines how software professionals, working on a real software product, are aided by their work practices, on a daily basis, in dealing with the practical and local consequences of global distribution. We ...
  • Faqeeh, Ali (University of Limerick, 2016)
    Many of the systems we observe in nature, in societies, or in infrastructures are in the form of a network of interacting units. This underlying network structure shapes the behavior of such systems and is an indispensable ...
  • Quish, Carol (University of Limerick, 2011)
    Point-to-point races are steeplechase races for novice horses, some of which may subsequently graduate to professional National Hunt (NH) races on the racecourse. There have been significant changes in the Irish racing ...
  • Riordan, James (University of Limerick, 2006)
    In this thesis a novel performance optimised approach to sidescan sonar simulation is described. Seminal approaches to sonar simulation reported in the literature are seen to produce visually realistic results that are ...
  • Murphy, Carthage (School of Architecture, University of Limerick, 2011)
    This thesis argues that the term permanence across its many definitions is particularily relevant to architecture at the beginning of the twenty-first century. It proposes that an understanding of permanence is necessary ...
  • Feehely, Daryl (University of Limerick, 2014)
    Mystification and discovery are key components in the enjoyment and human experience of wayfinding and fundamental to its success. This thesis extrapolates this theory by applying it to indoor wayfinding, using a mixed ...
  • Torres-Sallan, Gemma (University of Limerick, 2016)
    Soil plays a key role in the global carbon (C) cycle, since it holds 3.5 times more C than the atmosphere, and is the largest C pool after the oceans. Therefore, changes in soil organic carbon (SOC) can contribute to ...
  • Stapleton, Aimee (University of Limerick, 2017)
    Piezoelectricity is a particular type of electromechanical coupling in which a mechanical stress induces an electrical polarisation in materials that have a non-centrosymmetric crystal structure. A converse piezoelectric ...
  • Mooney, Barry (University of Limerick, 2018)
    This study investigates the combined effect of three Additive Manufacturing (AM) build orientations (0° , 45° , and 90° ) and an extensive array of heat-treatment plans on the plastic anisotropy of EOS maraging steel 300 ...
  • Kam, Wern (University of Limerick, 2018)
    This dissertation focuses on a plastic optical fibre (POF) sensor based on intensity modulation for health monitoring applications in a modern clinical environment. The sensor is suitable for spine bending monitoring as ...
  • McDonnell, Christopher (School of Architecture, University of Limerick, 2014)
    There is immense joy and freedom to be found in exploring a space, whether it is a newly discovered street or a rocky path up a mountainside. When people explore as a group they are engaging in a form of play activity, one ...
  • Walsh, Gerard (School of Architecture, University of Limerick, 2012)
    This thesis argues the relevance of social spaces for play and free time. Age appropriate design and the design of social infrastructure are important to architecture and urban design. At an age where they are marginalised, ...
  • Munroe, Aine (University of Limerick, 2010)
    This thesis investigated a number of solution mediated and solid state polymorphic transformations between the 5 known polymorphs Sulphathiazole. The polymorphs were isolated in their pure states and characterized. This ...
  • Madden, David (University of Limerick, 2014)
    Carbon dioxide (CO2) is seen as one of the major global contributors to global warming. CO2 is produced naturally in the environment, however, with the advent of climate change, CO2 emissions from manmade sources has ...
  • Benson, Luke Gerard (School of Architecture, University of Limerick, 2015)
    Days go by and everything changes. The weather controls our emotions, and our emotions control us. We control everything else. This is a natural occurrence, like the tide changing the water levels. By ‘everything’ I mean ...
  • Wen, Jiangchuan (University of Limerick, 2012)
    The variety of Bluetooth applications has increased greatly in recent times. The energy consumption in such applications has emerged as an important problem. The research presented in this dissertation investigates the ...
  • Nishio, Naoto (University of Limerick, 2015)
    The evaluation of the quality of a translation is still a time consuming manual operation depending on human intervention. Confidence Estimation (CE) explores the prediction of the quality of a translation from the ...
