  • Piccand, Sébastien; O'Neill, Michael; Walker, Jacqueline (2008)
    Particle swarm has proven to be competitive to other evolutionary algorithms in the field of optimization, and in many cases enables a faster convergence to the ideal solution. However, like any optimization algorithm it ...
  • Zhang, Fan (University of Limerick, 2012)
    Along with the recent rapid development of Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) systems, the range of attacks against WSN routing protocols have grown. As a result, there is an increased need for secure WSN routing protocols. WSN ...
  • Lane, Michael; Agerfalk, Par J. (IEEE Computer Society, 2008)
    Global software development surfaces various challenges and benefits that are not always present in co-located teams. The purpose of this paper is to explore a set of propositions that address the suitability of four ...
  • O'Donovan, Alan (University of Limerick, 2015)
    With anthropogenic climate change being one of the dominant socio-economic topics of the last decade, renewable energy has benefited from policies and legislation limiting carbon emissions. The technologies to exploit ...
  • Mac Giolla, Eain Marc (University of Limerick, 2014)
    Two phase liquid-liquid flows offer significant heat and mass transfer enhancements over single phase flows and, as a result, have found use in numerous emerging technologies employing microfluidics. Such technologies ...
  • Xu, Liang; Bhattacharya, Shanyon; Thompson, Damien (Royal Society of Chemistry, 2019)
    The experimental finding that α-synuclein (αS) occurs physiologically as a helically folded tetramer begs the question: why are helical tetramers the most populated multimers? While the helical tetramer is known to resist ...
  • Dassios, Ioannis K.; Cuffe, Paul; Keane, Andrew (2015)
    Electrical power system calculations rely heavily on the Y_{bus} matrix, which is the Laplacian matrix of the network under study, weighted by the complex-valued admittance of each branch. It is often useful to partition ...
  • Berkery, Elaine C.; Morley, Michael; Tiernan, Siobhán; Purtill, Helen; Parry, Emma (John Wiley and Sons Ltd., 2017)
    The aim of this study was to identify bundles of flexible working arrangements (FWAs) from data provided by 1,064 organizations in seven EU countries, and to relate bundle membership to demographic variables and human ...
  • Walsh, Ed J.; Davies, Mark; McEligot, Donald M (MDPI, 2004)
    Boundary layer transition is a critical parameter in the design of fluid flow systems. This situation is due to the dramatic change in both entropy production and heat transfer that accompanies it. It is well recognized ...
  • Agius, Dylan J.; Wallbrink, Chris; Hu, Weiping; Kajtaz, Mladenko; Wang, Chun; Kourousis, Kyriakos I. (Elsevier, 2017)
    Strain-life methodologies are commonly employed for fatigue estimation in military aircraft structures. These methodologies rely on models describing the elastoplastic response of the material under cycling. Despite the ...
  • McCarthy, Conor T. (University of Limerick, 2015)
    Microfluidics has enormous potential as a tool for developing new technology and reducing cost. In this thesis, Taylor flows are utilized to develop an automated system capable of loading, transporting, processing and ...
  • Villiers, Rory (University of Limerick, 2011)
    The most common method of pricing a cashflow collateralized debt obligation (cashflow CDO) is to use Monte Carlo integration. However, Monte Carlo integration is computationally intensive and often faster methods of ...
  • Ye, Juan; Clear, Adrian K.; Coyle, Lorcan; Dobson, Simon (Springer-Verlag, 2009)
    Through advances in sensing technology, a huge amount of data is available to context-aware applications. A major challenge is extracting features of this data that correlate to high-level human activities. Time, while ...
  • Iordanov, Petar; Hayes, Martin J.; Halton, Mark (IEEE Computer Society, 2003)
    The paper introduces a new approach for the computation of a lower bound on the structured singular value (SSV), μ in the presence of purely real and mixed/complex uncertainties. The approach utilises a frequency sweeping ...
  • Yates, Rebecca Yolande (University of Limerick, 2014)
    Many software developers struggle to understand code written by others, leading to increased maintenance costs. Research on program comprehension to date has primarily focused on individual developers attempting to ...
  • Trubetskaya, Anna; Beckmann, Gert; Wadenbäck, Johan; Holm, Jens Kai; Velaga, Sitaram P.; Weber, Roman (Elsevier, 2017)
    This study aims to provide a geometrical description of biomass particles that can be used in combustion models. The particle size of wood and herbaceous biomass was compared using light microscope, 2D dynamic imaging, ...
  • Bashar, Khalid; Healy, Donagh A.; Elsheikh, Sawsan; Browne, Leonard D.; Walsh, Michael T.; Clarke-Moloney, Mary; Burke, Paul E.; Kavanagh, Eamon G.; Walsh, Stewart R. (Public Library of Science, 2015)
    A brachiobasilic arteriovenous fistula (BB-AVF) can provide access for haemodialysis in patients who are not eligible for a more superficial fistula. However, it is unclear whether one or two-stage BB-AVF is the best option ...
  • Pahl, Claus; Giesecke, Simon; Hasselbring, Wilhelm (Springer, 2007)
    The conceptual modelling of software architectures is of central importance for the quality of a software system. A rich modelling language is required to integrate the different aspects of architecture modelling, such ...
