  • Xinxin, Xiao; Pengchao, Si; Edmond, Magner (Elsevier, 2015)
    Nanoporous gold (NPG) obtained via dealloying of Au alloys has potential applications in a range of fields, and in particular in bioelectrochemistry. NPG possesses a three dimensional bicontinuous network of interconnected ...
  • Xinxin, Xiao; Edmond, Magner (Royal Society of Chemistry, 2015)
    We report the first example of a biofuel cell operating in organic solvents. The cell utilises glucose oxidase and bilirubin oxidase immobilised on nanoporous gold. The power output of the cell decreases with increasing ...
  • Murnane, J.G; Brennan, R.B; Healy, M.G; Fenton, O (American Society of Agronomy, Crop Science Society of America, and Soil Science Society of America, 2015)
    Diffuse pollutant losses containing phosphorus (P), nitrogen (N), and suspended solids (SS) can occur when agricultural wastes are applied to soil. This study aimed to mitigate P, N, and SS losses in runoff from grassed ...
  • Dojen, Reiner; Coffey, Tom (World Scientific and Engineering Academy and Society (WSEAS), 2004)
    Linear cryptanalysis has been proven to be a powerful attack that can be applied to a number of symmetric block ciphers. However, conventional linear cryptanalysis is ineffective in attacking ciphers that use key-dependent ...
  • Poeggel, Sven; Tosi, Daniele; Duraibabu, DineshBabu; Leen, Gabriel; McGrath, Deirdre; Lewis, Elfed (MDPI, 2015)
    This article is focused on reviewing the current state-of-the-art of optical fibre pressure sensors for medical applications. Optical fibres have inherent advantages due to their small size, immunity to electromagnetic ...
  • Poeggel, Sven; Duraibabu, DineshBabu; Kalli, Kyriacos; Leen, Gabriel; Dooly, Gerard; Lewis, Elfed; Kelly, Jimmy; Munroe, Maria (MDPI, 2015)
    This investigation describes a detailed analysis of the fabrication and testing of optical fibre pressure and temperature sensors (OFPTS). The optical sensor of this research is based on an extrinsic Fabry–Perot ...
  • Tosi, Daniele; Saccomandi, Paola; Schena, Emiliano; Duraibabu, DineshBabu; Poeggel, Sven; Leen, Gabriel; Lewis, Elfed (MDPI, 2016)
    We report the first-ever intra-tissue pressure measurement performed during 1064 nm laser ablation (LA) of an ex vivo porcine liver. Pressure detection has been performed with a biocompatible, all-glass, temperature-insensitive ...
  • O'Higgins, Ronan M; McCarthy, Michael A (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, ...
  • 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, ...
  • McCarthy, Michael A (University of Limerick, 2003)
    The objective of BOJCAS was to develop advanced design methods for bolted joints in composite aircraft structures. This is a critical technology supporting the introduction of composites into the primary structure of ...

  • Jia, Lijun (University of Limerick, 2013)
    As one of main products of acid hydrolysis procedure from biomass, formic acid is a promising hydrogen carrier that has recently been earning more and more attention. CO-free hydrogen production and mild reaction conditions ...
  • Vaughan, Ted Joseph (University of Limerick, 2011)
    Fibre reinforced composites exhibit a gradual damage accumulation to failure, with a multitude of hierarchical dissipative mechanisms responsible for the deterioration of mechanical properties. In order to predict failure ...
  • Fowler, Andrew C; Kopteva, Natalia; Oakley, Charles (Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics, 2006)
    We consider a deterministic model of landscape evolution through the mechanism of overland flow over an erodible substrate, using the St. Venant equations of hydraulics together with the Exner equation for hillslope erosion. ...
  • Robinson, Marguerite; Fowler, Andrew C; Alexander, A.J; O'Brien, S.B.G (American Institute of Physics, 2008)
    We describe a simple model of a bubbly two-phase flow which is able to explain why waves propagate downward when a pint of Guinness is poured, and also how the waves are generated. Our theory involves a physically based ...
  • Zammett, R.J; Fowler, Andrew C (Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics, 2010)
    Spiral-shaped canyons on the polar ice caps of Mars are striking morphological features whose explanation is still mysterious. We pose a model for the kinetics at the ice-atmosphere interface based on the positive feedback ...
  • Kyrke-Smith, T.M; Katz, R.F; Fowler, Andrew C (American Geophysical Union, 2015)
    Observations have long associated ice streams with the presence of meltwater at the bed. More recently, theoretical models have been able to reproduce ice stream behavior as a consequence of the coupled dynamics of ice and ...
  • Khaleque, Tania S; Fowler, Andrew C; Howell, P D; Vynnycky, M (American Institute of Physics, 2015)
    Motivated by convection of planetary mantles, we consider a mathematical model for Rayleigh-Benard convection in a basally heated layer of a fluid whose viscosity depends strongly on temperature and pressure, defined in ...
  • Lee, William T.; Fowler, Andrew C; Power, O; Healy, S; Browne, J (American Institute of Physics, 2010)
    Polycrystalline silicon fuses are one time programmable memory elements which allow the calibration of integrated circuits at wafer and package level. We present a zero-dimensional lumped parameter model of the programming ...
  • McCarthy, Michael A; McCarthy, Conor T (2003)
    In sub-task 2.2 of the European Union research Programme “CRAHVI”, the University of Limerick (ULIM) is to perform simulations of birdstrike against structures representative of the leading edge of a commuter aircraft. ...
