Representing and sharing tagging data using the social semantic cloud of tags
(IGI Global, 2009-07)
Social tagging has become an essential element for Web 2.0 and the emerging Semantic Web applications. With the rise of Web 2.0, websites that provide content creation and sharing features have become extremely popular. ...
An analysis of third-level multi-cultural interdisciplinary student learning outcomes using Wiki technology
(ILTA Irish Learning Technology Association, 2009-05-21)
The increasing need for effective collaboration among interdisciplinary groups suggests the necessity of developing teaching pedagogy that infuses teaching techniques with technologies. Combining Business and Engineering ...
Prediction of pile settlement using artificial neural networks based on standard penetration test data
In recent years artificial neural networks (ANNs) have been applied to many geotechnical engineering problems with some degree of success. With respect to the design of pile foundations, accurate prediction of pile settlement ...
An adaptive mesh solute transport model
An adaptive mesh solute transport model is presented. The adaptive mesh scheme is implemented in a one-way multiply nested version of the hydrobiological model DIVAST (Depth Integrated Velocity and Solute Transport). The ...

Influence of seasonal circulation on flushing of the Irish Sea
(Elsevier ScienceDirect, 2009-12-16)
We applied a three-dimensional general ocean and coastal circulation model to the Irish Sea in order to determine water renewal time scales in the region. The model was forced with meteorological data for 1995, a year with ...
Effect of hydroxyapatite on biodegradable scaffolds fabricated by SLS
(Trans Tech Publications Ltd., 2009)
Selective laser sintering (SLS) has the potential to fabricate bioresorbable polymer / ceramic composite scaffolds with pre-designed external and internal architecture that can be used for bone tissue engineering applications. ...
A combined experimental-numerical approach for generating statistically equivalent fibre distributions for high strength laminated composite materials
A technique is presented where actual experimental distributions, measured from a high strength carbon fibre composite, are considered in the development of a novel method to generate statistically equivalent fibre ...
Finite element modelling of damage in superplastic forming of a titanium alloy
(Springer Verlag, 2009-12-15)
This paper describes the application of a continuum damage mechanics methodology to the prediction of failure during superplastic forming of Ti-6Al-4V. A power law constitutive relationship is employed within a geometrically ...
Cyclic loading tests on sandstone and limestone shale aggregates used in unbound forest roads.
(Construction and Building Materials, 2009-06-01)
This study examined the performance of two aggregates subjected to cyclic loading in a large-scale test rig. The two aggregates examined were: (i) a sandstone from Co. Cork, Ireland and (ii) a limestone shale from Co. ...
