  • Optimal design and operation of small-scale wastewater treatment plants: The Irish case: EPA Research Report 255 

    Fitzsimons, Lorna; McNamara, Greg; Doherty, Edelle; Clifford, Eoghan (Environmental Protection Agency, 2018-08)
    There are many variables which must be considered when designing and operating a wastewater treatment system. The key objectives of this research were to develop software tools to assist in the selection and management of ...
  • The effect of wastewater treatment processes, in particular ultraviolet light treatment, on pathogenic virus removal: EPA Research Report 171 

    Fitzhenry, Kelly; Barrett, Maria; O’Flaherty, Vincent; Dore, William; Cormican, Martin; Rowan, Neil; Clifford, Eoghan (Environmental Protection Agency, 2016-05)
    Format: pdf Download now Municipal wastewater treatment plant discharges are a recognised source of human pathogenic viruses. Of concern within this group is norovirus the leading cause of viral gastroenteritis ...
  • Increasing resource efficiency in wastewater treatment plants: EPA Research Report 168 

    Fitzsimons, Lorna; Clifford, Eoghan; McNamara, Greg; Doherty, Edelle; Phelan, Thomas; Horrigan, Matthew; Delauré, Yann; Corcoran, Brian (Environmental Protection Agency, 2016-03)
    The focus of this project was the resource efficiency of Irish wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs). The perspective of the report is both operational (economic) and environmental. Wastewater treatment is a resource-intensive ...
  • Ground improvement using the vibro- stone column technique 

    McCabe, Bryan A.; McNeill, James A.; Black, Jonathan A. (Institution of Engineers in Ireland, 2007)
    The Vibro Stone Column technique is one of the most widely-used ground improvement processes in the world, although its potential for improving Irish sites has yet to be fully exploited. Historically the system has been ...
  • National Centre for Water and Wastewater Research and Demonstration 

    Clifford, Eoghan; O'Reilly, Edmond; Rodgers, Michael; O'Donoghue, Padraic (EPA: STRIVE Report 78, 2010)
    Decentralised wastewater treatment systems for small towns (200 2,000 PE) often have different design requirements to those of systems for larger conurbations even though the treatment process technologies may be similar. ...
  • Brace response and assessment: computation, experiments and design (BRACED) 

    Goggins, Jamie (Seismic engineering research infrastructures for European synergies (SERIES) , Project No.: 227887, 2013)
    The BRACED project investigated the ultimate behaviour of concentrically braced frames(CBFs). The research programme was designed to validate empirical models for theductility capacity of hollow section bracing members and ...
