  • Benilov, Eugene; Barros, Ricardo; O'Brien, Stephen B.G. (American Physical Society, 2016)
    We investigate the stability of thin liquid curtains with respect to two-dimensional perturbations. The dynamics of perturbations with wavelengths exceeding (or comparable to) the curtain's thickness are examined using the ...
  • Oboroceanu, Daniela; Quill, Nathan; Lenihan, Catherine; Ní Eidhin, Deirdre; Albu, Sergiu P.; Lynch, Robert P.; Buckley, Noel (Electrochemical Society, 2016)
    The stability of typical vanadium flowbattery (VFB) catholytes with respect to precipitation of V2O5 was investigated at temperatures in the range 30–60◦C. In all cases a precipitate formed after an induction time, which ...
  • Baskys, Algirdas; Hopkins, Simon C.; Bader, Jakob; Glowacki, Bartek A. (Elsevier, 2016)
    As superconducting materials find their way into applications, there is increasing need to verify their performance at operating conditions. Testing of critical current with respect to temperature and magnetic field is of ...
  • Murray, Kieran A.; Collins, Maurice N.; O'Sullivan, Regina P.; Ren, Guang; Devine, Declan M.; Murphy, Alan; Sadło, Jaroslaw; O'Sullivan, Carol; McEvoy, Brian; Vrain, Oliver; O'Neill, Catriona; Insley, Gerard (Elsevier, 2018)
    Premixed calcium phosphate cements (CPC's) are becoming the material of choice for injectable cements as a result of their effective delivery to the target implantation site. For orthopaedic use, it is of vital importance ...
  • Bajpai, Alankriti; O'Nolan, Daniel; Madden, David G.; Chen, Kai-Jie; Pham, Tony; Kumar, Amrit; Lusi, Matteo; Perry, John J.; Space, Brian; Zaworotko, Michael J. (Royal Society of Chemistry, 2017)
    Fine-tuning of hybrid ultramicroporous materials (HUMs) can significantly impact their gas sorption performance. This study reveals that offset interpenetration can be antagonistic with respect to C2H2 separation from ...
  • Zhang, Haiyang; Ganchev, Ivan; Nikolov, Nikola S.; Ji, Zhanlin; O'Droma, Máirtín (Hindawi Publishing Corporation: Wiley Hindawi Partnership, 2017)
    With the development of ubiquitous computing, recommendation systems have become essential tools in assisting users in discovering services they would find interesting. This process is highly dynamic with an increasing ...
  • Mullane, Nessa S.; Smyth, Timothy (University of Limerick, 2012)
    A select set of y-lactones, y-lactams and related bicyclic y-lactams - pyrrolothiazole[2,1b]thiazoles - were designed, synthesised and evaluated enzymatically as inhibitors of the serine proteases, elastase, and (to ...
  • Kelly, Emma (University of Limerick, 2012)
    This thesis presents the thermal characterisation of a gas powered, portable device used for the vaporisation of herbal materials for biomedical inhalation. The main aims of this research are to characterise the thermal ...
  • Cronin, Patrick (University of Limerick, 2012)
    The incorporation of nanoparticles (NPs) into the surfaces of materials has received significant attention, especially in the area of textiles for self-cleaning. The sphericity and fast oxidation of metallic NPs when exposed ...

    An inorganic scintillating material plastic optical fiber (POF) dosimeter for measuring ionizing radiation during radiotherapy applications is reported. It is necessary that an ideal dosimeter exhibits many desirable ...
  • Trifonov, Hristo Georgiev (2017)
    Traffic-Aware Adaptive Polling Mechanism for High Performance Packet Processing Hristo Trifonov The work described in thesis concerns the topical subject area of SDN (software defined networking), in particular the Data ...
  • Díaz Valenzuela, Carlos; Carriedo, Gabino A.; Valenzuela, María L.; Zúniga, Luis; O’Dwyer, Colm (Nature Publishing Group, 2013)
    Growing complex metallic crystals, supported high index facet nanocrystal composites and tunable porosity metals, and exploiting factors that influence shape and morphology is crucial in many exciting developments in ...
  • Young, Trevor M (Wiley and Sons Ltd, 2017)
    Performance of the Jet Transport Airplane: Analysis Methods, Flight Operations, and Regulations presents a detailed and comprehensive treatment of performance analysis techniques for jet transport airplanes. Uniquely, ...
  • Oboroceanu, Daniela; Quill, Nathan; Lenihan, Catherine; Ní Eidhin, Deirdre; Albu, Sergiu P.; Lynch, Robert P.; Buckley, Noel (Electrochemical Society, 2017)
    The stability of typical vanadium flow battery (VFB) catholytes was investigated at temperatures in the range 30–60°C for VV concentrations of 1.4–2.2 mol dm−3 and sulfate concentrations of 3.6–5.4 mol dm−3. In all cases, ...
  • Székács, András; Wilkinson, Martin G; Appel, Bernd (Elsevier, 2017)
    Spices and herbs, which are consumed in small quantities, but used in a wide range of foods and food products, represent a unique segment within the food sector. Moreover, being distributed as mostly in their dried, low ...
  • Scanlon, Micheál D; Peljo, Pekka; Rivier, Lucie; Vrubel, Heron; Girault, Hubert H (Royal Society of Chemistry, 2017)
    The concept of efficient electrolysis by linking photoelectrochemical biphasic H2 evolution and water oxidation processes in the cathodic and anodic compartments of an H-cell, respectively, is introduced. Overpotentials ...
  • Kroll, Josiane; Richardson, Ita; Prikladnicki, Rafael; Audy, Jorge L.N. (Elsevier, 2017)
    Context: Follow the Sun (FTS) development is a special case of Global Software Development. It is ap- plied in the context of global projects to reduce the software development life-cycle duration. A number of studies have ...
