    ZHANG, LIN (Trinity College Dublin. School of Engineering. Disc of Civil Structural & Environmental Eng, 2017)
    This PhD research includes two parts, viz. experimental investigation on the undrained mechanical properties of undisturbed fibrous peat and a finite strain constitutive model within a thermodynamically consistent framework ...
  • Thermal energy modelling, benchmarking and mapping for university campus buildings 

    McCormack, Sarah; Ministry of Science, Research, and Technology, Iran (Trinity College Dublin. School of Engineering. Disc of Civil Structural & Environmental Eng, 2017)
    According to the Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineering, CIBSE TM46:2008 University Campus benchmark, a college building needs 240 kWh/m2 of thermal energy and proportionally produces 45.6kg CO2 per annum. ...
  • Soil plasticity determination using manafi method and apparatus 

    MANAFIGHORABAEI, SEYEDMASOUD (Trinity College Dublin. School of Engineering. Discipline of Civil Structural & Environmental Eng, 2017)
    Determination of soil plasticity is of great importance in geotechnical engineering projects. Consistency of soil can be expressed in terms of Atterberg limits of soils. Liquid limit and plastic limit tests are among the ...
  • Infrared imaging analysis of hand skin temperature for thermal comfort assessment 

    Walsh, Simeon (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). Department of Civil, Structural and Environmental Engineering, 2015)
    Thermal comfort is a subjective sensation of the mind and body which expresses a level of satisfaction with the thermal environment. For years thermal comfort has been studied and external variables such as air temperature ...
  • Biogrout : pore scale bonding phenomena in saturated and unsaturated soils 

    Viganotti, Matteo (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). Department of Civil, Structural and Environmental Engineering, 2014)
    In the field of biogeocivil engineering one of the most promising in-situ ground improvement technologies is represented by Microbially Induced Carbonate Precipitation (MICP). Often referred to as biogrouting, MICP ground ...
