  • 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. ...
  • Mathur, Avijit; Newe, Thomas; Rao, Muzaffar (MDPI, 2016)
    Wireless sensor networks (WSNs) are being used to facilitate monitoring of patients in hospital and home environments. These systems consist of a variety of different components/sensors and many processes like clustering, ...
  • Frohburg, Jan (Cambridge University Press, 2015)
    In commenting on Mies van der Rohe's courtyard house projects this letter speculates about Mies’s design process and whether it may serve as a model for current practice.
  • Ciolino, Joseph B; Hudson, Sarah P; Mobbs, Ashley N; Hoare, Todd R; Iwata, Naomi G; Fink, Gerald R; Kohane, Daniel S (Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology (ARVO), 2011)
    PURPOSE. To design a contact lens to treat and prevent fungal ocular infections.METHODS. Curved contact lenses were created by encapsulating econazole-impregnated poly(lactic-co-glycolic) acid (PLGA) films in poly(hydroxyethyl ...

    Lactobacilli are a diverse group of species that occupy diverse nutrient-rich niches associated with humans, animals, plants and food. They are used widely in biotechnology and food preservation, and are being explored as ...
  • 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, ...
  • Hudson, Sarah P; Langer, Robert; Fink, Gerald R; Kohane, Daniel S (Elsevier, 2010)
    Invasive fungal infections can be devastating, particularly in immunocompromised patients, and difficult to treat with systemic drugs. Furthermore, systemic administration of those medications can have severe side effects. ...
  • Hudson, Sarah P; Padera, Robert F; Langer, Robert; Kohane, Daniel S (Elsevier, 2008)
    Micro- and nano-mesoporous silicate particles are considered potential drug delivery systems because of their ordered pore structures, large surface areas and the ease with which they can be chemically modified. However, ...
  • Piterina, Anna Valentinova; Pembroke, Tony J (Hindawi Publishing Corporation, 2013)
    PCR and PCR-DGGE techniques have been evaluated to monitor biodiversity indexes within an ATAD (autothermal thermophilic aerobic digestion) system treating domestic sludge for land spread, by examining microbial dynamics ...
  • Ji, Zhanlin; Ganchev, Ivan; O'Droma, Máirtín; Zhang, Xin; Zhang, Xueji (Hindawi Publishing Corporation, 2014)
    Based on the user-centric paradigm for next generation networks, this paper describes a ubiquitous mobile healthcare (uHealth) system based on the ISO/IEEE 11073 personal health data (PHD) standards (X73) and cloud computing ...
  • Vangelis, Andrianos; Stoikou, Vasiliki; Tsikrika, Konstantina; Lamprou, Dimitra; Stansinos, Sotiris; Proestos, Charalampos; Zabetakis, Ioannis (Enviro Research Publishers, 2016)
    Antioxidant enzymes (catalase and peroxidase) and carotenoids (lutein and â-carotene) are often used as biomarkers of metal contamination of water and agricultural soils. In this study, the effects of heavy metals present ...
  • O'Higgins, Ronan; McCarthy, Michael A (University of Limerick, 2004)
    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, ...
  • Padhi, G.S (University of Limerick, 2004)
    In D1.2 [1] an interim report was presented on the development of a computational model for the prediction of the initiation and growth of damage in composite bolted joints based on the stiffness reduction scheme. The ...
  • O'Higgins, Ronan M; McCarthy, Michael A (2005)
    The goal of this project was to accurately predict the ultimate failure strengths of fibre reinforced polymer matrix composite open hole tension specimens using the Ladevèze continuum mechanics damage model, currently ...
