  • Clancy, Michael A. (University of Limerick, 2018)
    Inventories of forest soil carbon (C) stocks are necessary to determine spatial and temporal C stock changes and support climate change mitigation policy development. Afforested podzols and peaty podzols were sampled to ...
  • Asplund, Mikael; Manzoor, Atif; Bouroche, Mélanie; Clarke, Siobhán; Cahill, Vinny (Springer, 2012)
    Increasing demands on safety and energy e ciency will re- quire higher levels of automation in transportation systems. This in- volves dealing with safety-critical distributed coordination. In this paper we demonstrate ...
  • Janota, Mikolas; Botterweck, Goetz (2008)
    If we model a family of software applications with a feature model and an architecture model, we are describing the same subject from different perspectives. Hence, we are running the risk of inconsistencies. For instance, ...
  • Espinoza, Angelina; Botterweck, Goetz; Garbajosa, Juan (Association for Computing Machinery, 2010)
    Software Product Line (SPL) Engineering has to deal with interrelated, complex models such as feature and architecture models, hence traceability is fundamental to keep them consistent. Commonly, a traceability schema must ...
  • Vassev, Emil; Hinchey, Mike; Nixon, Paddy (IEEE Computer Society, 2010)
    Intelligent swarms draw their inspiration from biology where many simple entities act independently, but when grouped, they appear to be highly organized. NASA is currently investigating swarm-based technologies for the ...
  • Bresciani, Riccardo; Butterfield, Andrew (IEEE Computer Society, 2009)
    When some agents want to communicate through a media stream (for example voice or video), the Real Time Protocol (RTP) is used. This protocol does not provide encryption, so it is necessary to use Secure RTP (SRTP) to ...
  • Black, Sue; Boca, Paul P.; Bowen, Jonathan P.; Gorman, Jason; Hinchey, Mike (IEEE Computer Society, 2009)
    The potential for combining agile and formal methods holds promise. Although it might not always be an easy partnership, it will succeed if it can foster a fruitful interchange of expertise between the two communities.
  • Fitzgerald, Brian (Blackwell Publishing, 1996)
    Systems development issues occupy a position of central importance in the information systems field and, indeed, much has been prescribed in the quest for successful systems development. However, given the well-documented ...
  • Popescu, Razvan; Staikopoulos, Athanasios; Brogi, Antonio; Liu, Peng; Clarke, Siobhán (Association for Computing Machinery, 2012)
    Advances in pervasive technology have made it possible to consider large-scale application types that potentially span heterogeneous organisations, technologies and device types. This class of application will have a ...
  • Kiniry, Joseph R. (IEEE Computer Society, 2007)
    In this extended abstract we summarize our consulting work, scientific research, and activism in the topic of electronic (computer-based) voting. The Dutch and Irish government’s activities are our particular focus, as ...
  • Pita, Isabel A. (University of Limerick, 2017)
    This thesis focuses on the formation of heterogeneous structures, and their optimization to form improved components for nanocircuits; including light source, antenna incorporation for enhanced wave guiding, and probe ...
  • Quill, Nathan (University of Limerick, 2012)
    This thesis focuses on electrochemical pore formation in n-InP in KOH. A model for pore growth along the <111>A crystallographic directions was previously developed in our group. It is shown how an understanding of this ...
  • Zhao, Bin; Hardiman, Mark; Ryan, Kevin M.; O'Reilly, Emmet J.; McCarthy, Conor T. (Royal Society of Chemistry, 2016)
    Epoxy resin (ER) thermosetting adhesives provide highly cross-linked 3-dimensional structures leading to highly stable and strong mechanical/physical performance in a wide range of bonding applications. However, such ...
  • 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. ...
  • Jia, Lijun; Bulushev, Dmitri A.; Ross, Julian R.H. (Elsevier, 2016)
    The introduction of potassium carbonate into Pd/Al2O3, Pd/SiO2 and Pd/C catalysts promoted both the catalytic activities and the hydrogen selectivities for the vapor-phase formic acid decomposition, giving values of the ...
  • Armstrong, Gordon; Thornton, Roibeard F.; Ryan, Michael P.; Laffir, Fathima R.; Russell, Ronald J; Bala, Tanushree; Keely, Christopher; Babu, Rameesh (Springer-Verlag, 2012)
    Current interest in antimicrobial coatings is driven by an urgent need for more effective strategies to control microbial infection. In this study, antimicrobial nanoclays were prepared by ion-exchange of sodium montmorillonite ...
  • Rao, Muzaffar; Coleman, Joseph; Newe, Thomas (IEEE Computer Society, 2016)
    This work implements an FPGA (Field Programmable Gate Array) based reconfigurable IPSec ESP core. The IPSec protocol, developed by the IETF (Internet Engineering Task Force) in 1998, is a popular solution to facilitate ...
  • Arshak, Khalil; Jafer, Essa; Ibala, Christian Serge (IEEE Computer Society, 2007)
    The aim of this study is to design and develop a wireless sensor system integrating 24 bits analog to digital converter (ADC) and long range RF transceiver unit. The system is reading from two types of sensors, pressure ...
  • Venkatesh, Karra (University of Limerick, 2017)
    Data converters are used in mixed-signal designs and are important electronic devices with applications in many areas like consumer electronics, communications, computing, control and instrumentation. Design of these data ...
  • Scharrer, Martin Josef; Halton, Mark; Scanlan, Martin (IEEE Computer Society, 2009)
    This paper proposes a new FPGA based architecture for digital pulse width modulators which takes advantage of dedicated digital clock manager (DCM) blocks present in modern FPGAs and applies manual placement techniques ...
