  • Sanders, Martha H. (University of Limerick, 2008)
    The environment of software development and maintenance is intangible, invisible and consequently difficult to manage. Specific problems have been documented, and solutions developed to meet these individual problems. ...
  • English, Michael; Buckley, Jim; Cahill, Tony (IEEE Computer Society, 2007)
    Modularity is one of the key features of the Object-Oriented (OO) paradigm. Low coupling and high cohesion help to achieve good modularity. Inheritance is one of the core concepts of the OO paradigm which facilitates ...
  • Nirmalraj, Peter; La Rosa, Andrea; Thompson, Damien; Sousa, Marilyne; Martin, Nazario; Gotsmann, Bernd; Riel, Heike (Nature Publishing Group, 2015)
    Predicting the electronic framework of an organic molecule under practical conditions is essential if the molecules are to be wired in a realistic circuit. This demands a clear description of the molecular energy levels ...
  • Egan, Brian; McCarthy, Michael A; Frizzell, R.M.; McCarthy, Conor T (Elsevier, 2015)
    Accurate models of dynamic structural failure are important for crashworthiness studies. To date, catastrophic failure of dynamically-loaded composite bolted joints has been studied using global or stacked shell element ...
  • McGloughlin, Timothy M.; Doyle, Barry J.; Callanan, Anthony; Walsh, Michael T.; Grace, Pierce A. (Bentham Science Publishers, 2009)
    Currently, abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAAs), which are a permanent dilation of the aorta, are treated surgically when the maximum transverse diameter surpasses 5.5cm. AAA rupture occurs when the locally acting wall stress ...
  • Egan, Brian (University of Limerick, 2014)
    Bolted joints feature extensively in composite aircraft structures, facilitating disassembly for maintenance while offering a cost effective joining method. However, inadequate tools for predicting failure of composite ...
  • Dobson, Simon; Bailey, Eoin; Knox, Stephen; Shannon, Ross; Quigley, Aaron; SFI (IEEE Computer Society, 2007)
    Control systems must increasingly be designed to involve collections of hardware and software components, both of which may evolve over the lifetime of the system, and which are expected to provide self-managing, adaptive, ...
  • McHugh, Fearghal; Acton, Thomas (Center for Innovations in Business & Management Practice (CIBMP), 2012)
    The fast, unstructured and turbulent nature of decision making in agile software development (ASD) teams at times necessitates software-based support tools (Dabrowski, Acton, Drury, Conboy, and Dabrowska, 2011). The demands ...
  • Buglione, Luigi; Mc Caffery, Fergal; Hauck, Jean Carlo R.; Gresse von Wangenheim, Christiane (Springer, 2012)
    One of the main challenges for ICT organizations is to initiate a well-structured process improvement program. This is particularly the case when adopting a maturity & capability model (MCM) as it brings with it costs ...
  • Fitzgerald, Brian; Slaughter, Sandra A.; Agerfalk, Par J. (INFORMS (Institute for Operations Research and Management Sciences), 2006)
    In recent years, considerable research attention has been devoted to process flexibility and globally distributed IS development. The quest for flexibility is evident in the development of various agile methods, such as ...
  • Toal, Daniel; Nolan, Sean; Riordan, James; Omerdic, Edin (Society for Underwater Technology, 2009)
    This paper describes the ROVLATIS , a multi-mode of operation flexible platform for high-resolution near-seabed survey from shallow inshore waters to depths beyond 1000m. The paper further describes the operation modes ...
  • Bergel, Alexandre (IEEE Computer Society, 2011)
    Wireless sensor networks necessitate a programming model different from those used to develop desktop applications. Typically, resources in terms of power and memory are constrained. C is the most common programming language ...
  • Desmond, Michael; Storey, Margaret-Anne (2006)
    The use of modern programming paradigms and technologies,such as object orientation, inheritance, polymorphism and aspect orientation, facilitate a number of important software engineeringbenefits. Concerns can be better ...
  • Moloney David S; Callanan, Anthony; Kavanagh, Eamon G; Walsh, Michael T.; McGloughlin, Timothy M. (BioMed Central, 2009)
    Background: Abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA) are local dilatations of the infrarenal aorta. If left untreated they may rupture and lead to death. One form of treatment is the minimally invasive insertion of a stent-graft ...
  • Xue, Gang (University of Limerick, 2014)
    Miscanthus×giganteus (M×G), a typical bioenergy crop, has been widely planted in Ireland. But the virgin miscanthus is considered as a low grade fuel. The aim of this study is to investigate a method to (a) upgrade the ...
  • Reid, M; Pomeroy, Michael J.; Vokal, V; Tanner, D.A (Maney Publishing, 2005)
    Discs of (pure nickel 15 mm diameter and 4 nun thickness) have been polished to a 1 mu m finish, aluminised using a standard pack CVD process to give a beta-NiAl coating and then the surface of this coating polished to a ...
  • Arshak, Khalil; Mihov, Miroslav; Arshak, Arousian; McDonagh, Declan; Sutton, D (IEEE Computer Society, 2004)
    Focused Ion Beam (FIB) lithography has significant advantages over the electron beam counterpart in terms of resist sensitivity, backscattering and proximity effects. Applying the Top Surface Imaging (TSI) principal to ...
  • Ó Muiris, Eoghan (University of Limerick, 2014)
    The pressures arising at interfaces between living tissue and pressure applying parts are of increasing interest in medical and veterinary science. This interest arises primarily out of the need to control these pressures ...
  • Cox, Sara; Hitchings, Graham (IEEE Computer Society, 1992)
    Through a number of "participative learning" exercises, it may be demonstrated that the human brain can be very predictable in its modus operandii. This is an excellent attribute when considered as a conditioned response ...
  • 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 ...
