  • Handschuh, Harald; O'Dwyer, Jean; Adley, Catherine C (MDPI, 2015)
    The travelling population is increasing globally year on year. International tourist arrival figures reached 1087 million in 2013 and 1133 million in 2014; of which 53% and 54% respectively accounted for air transport. ...
  • Schmalenberger, Achim; O'Sullivan, Orla; Gahan, Jacinta; Cotter, Paul D; Courtney, Ronan (American Chemical Society, 2013)
    Bauxite residue is the alkaline byproduct generated when alumina is extracted from bauxite ores and is commonly deposited in impoundments. These sites represent hostile environments with increased salinity and alkalinity ...
  • Schmalenberger, Achim; Noll, Matthias (Elsevier, 2014)
    Sulphonates are often the major form of sulphur in soils where sulphate usually represents less than 5% of the total sulphur. The use of sulphonates as a S source is limited to a functional bacterial guild. However, fungi ...
  • Mc Hugh, Martin; Mc Caffery, Fergal; Fitzgerald, Brian; Stol, Klaas-Jan; Casey, Valentine; Coady, Garret (Springer, 2013)
    Agile development techniques are becoming increasingly popular in the generic software development industry as they appear to offer solutions to the problems associated with following a plan-driven Software Development ...
  • Kane, M; Korn, B; Saukkonen, J; McDonald, C; Walsh, Cathal Dominic; Waters, R; McLaughlin, A.M; Keane, J (Irish Medical Organisation, 2013)
    Treatment of Latent Tuberculosis Infection (LTBI) is an important component of any TB control strategy. Acceptance and completion of treatment is poor. We undertook this study to identify barriers to acceptance & completion ...
  • Mc Hugh, Martin; Mc Caffery, Fergal; Casey, Valentine (Springer Verlag, 2012)
    Agile methodologies such as XP and Scrum are founded upon the four values and twelve principles of agile software development. A software development project is only considered to be truly agile if these values and principles ...
  • Regan, Gilbert; Mc Caffery, Fergal; Mc Daid, Kevin; Flood, Derek (2012)
    Traceability of software artifacts, from requirements to design and through implementation and quality assurance, has long been promoted by the research and expert practitioner communities. However, evidence indicates ...
  • Mc Hugh, Martin; Mc Caffery, Fergal; Casey, Valentine (Euro SPI, 2012)
    Non-safety critical software developers have been reaping the benefits of adopting agile practices for a number of years. However, developers of safety critical software often have concerns about adopting Agile practices. ...
  • Domijan, Katarina; Wilson, Simon P (Springer-Verlag, 2011)
    A Bayesian multi-category kernel classi cation method is proposed. The algorithm performs the classi cation of the projections of the data to the principal axes of the feature space. The advantage of this approach is ...
  • Lynch, Deirdre; Low, Fiona; Henihan, Anne Marie; Garcia, Alberto; Kwapinski, Witold; Zhang, Lian; Leahy, J.J. (American Chemical Society, 2014)
    In this study, we have examined the behavior of heavy metals during fluidized bed combustion of poultry litter. Heavy metals examined include As, Cd, Co, Cr, Cu, Hg, Mn, Mo, Ni, Pb, V, and Zn. Solid and gaseous streams ...
  • Lei, Yiming (University of Limerick, 2010)
    The major weakness of frequently used Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) signals is their high sensitivity to nonlinear amplification process when they are driven through RF power amplifiers (PAs). In research ...
  • Morgan, Lorraine; Finnegan, Patrick (Springer, 2007)
    Much of the assessment of OSS benefits and drawbacks has been based on anecdotal evidence appearing in practitioner publications, white papers, web articles etc. To a greater extent this research has tended to concentrate ...
  • Hogan, Jennifer (School of Architecture, University of Limerick, 2015)
    The aim of this thesis was to thoroughly immerse myself into the liminal space that lingers between our initial thoughts and realised visions. The shadow, as it were, was the elusive subject I have chased since my ...
  • McMahon, Muireann; Kiernan, Louise (Common Ground Publishing, 2011)
    The Design Studio is seen as an integral part of all design practice, both professional and educational. It is the creative environment where ideas are conceived, developed and shared amongst the collective. In the design ...
  • Gleeson, James P. (American Physical Society, 2013)
    A wide class of binary-state dynamics on networks-including, for example, the voter model, the Bass diffusion model, and threshold models-can be described in terms of transition rates (spin-flip probabilities) that depend ...
  • Chadwick, E.G; Clarkin, O.M; Raghavendra, R; Tanner, D.A (IOS Press, 2014)
    The properties of porous silicon make it a promising material for a host of applications including drug delivery, molecular and cell-based biosensing, and tissue engineering. Porous Silicon has previously shown its ...
  • Wren, A.W.; Cummins, Niamh M; Laffir, Fathima R.; Hudson, Sarah P; Towler, M.R (Springer-Verlag, 2011)
    The ion release profiles and bioactivity of a series of Ti containing glass polyalkenoate cements (GPCs). Characterization revealed each material to be amorphous with a Tg in the region of 650-660ºC. The network connectivity ...
  • Kwapinski, Witold; Byrne, Corinna M.P.; Kryachko, Ekaterina; Wolfram, Przemyslaw; Adley, Catherine C; Leahy, J.J.; Novotny, Etelvino H.; Hayes, Michael H. (Springer Netherlands, 2010)
    There is an increasing realisation that biomass and organic wastes are valuable feedstocks for second generation biorefining processes that give rise to platform chemicals to substitute for dwindling petrochemical resources, ...
  • 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, ...
  • Xinxin, Xiao; Edmond, Magner (Royal Society of Chemistry, 2015)
    We report the first example of a biofuel cell operating in organic solvents. The cell utilises glucose oxidase and bilirubin oxidase immobilised on nanoporous gold. The power output of the cell decreases with increasing ...
