Installation of a reduced-scale pile group in silt
(IHS BRE Press, 2008)
This paper presents measurements of total stress and pore pressure made during and after the installation of a reduced scale group of five piles in a soft estuarine silt. The instrumentation includes pore pressure and ...
Implementation of an ambient intelligence (AmI) system in a manufacturing SME
(IOS Press, 2008)
SME are facing greater challenges due to increased labour cost and reduced cycle times. To adapt to this change more effectively and efficiently they need systems in place that adapt to change easily and seamlessly. This ...

Constructed wetlands for the treatment of highway runoff.
(Nova Publishers, 2008-06-01)
Highway surface runoff contains pollutants such as total suspended solids (TSS), hydrocarbons, de-icing salts, and heavy metals. Treatment methods for highway runoff include storage/treatment facilities, such as constructed ...
Methodology for the location of a subsurface permeable reactive barrier for the remediation of point source pollution on an Irish farm
Nutrient loss from agricultural sources to water continues to be a national challenge. Diffuse pollution from agricultural sources is considered to be the primary cause of slight-to-moderate water pollution in Ireland, but ...
Statistical models of appearance for eye tracking and eye-blink detection and measurement
A statistical Active Appearance Model (AAM) is developed to track and detect eye blinking. The model has been designed to be robust to variations of head pose or gaze. In particular we analyze and determine the model ...
A Machine Learning Application for Classification of Chemical Spectra
This paper presents a software package that allows chemists to analyze spectroscopy data using innovative machine learning (ML) techniques. The package, designed for use in conjunction with lab-based spectroscopic ...
On the Classification Performance of TAN and General Bayesian Networks
Over a decade ago, Friedman et al. introduced the Tree Augmented Naïve Bayes (TAN) classifier, with experiments indicating that it significantly outperformed Naïve Bayes (NB) in terms of classification ...
Harvesting effects on biomass and nutrient retention in phragmites australis in a free-water surface constructed wetland in western Ireland
(The Royal Irish Academy, 2008-06-26)
The aim of this study was to examine the seasonal variation in biomass, total nitrogen (Tot-N) and total phosphorus (Tot-P) content of Phragmites australis in a 3-cell free-water surface (FWS) constructed wetland in western ...
