  • Denitrification in subsoils and groundwater in Ireland 

    Jahangir, Mohammad Mofizur Rahman (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). Department of Civil, Structural and Environmental Engineering, 2012)
    Excessive reactive nitrogen (N) in groundwater is of huge concern to surface water quality and atmospheric nitrous oxide (N2O) emissions via denitrification. Understanding denitrification rates and factors controlling ...
  • Design & performance of deep foundations in Ireland 

    Galbraith, Andrew P. (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). Department of Civil, Structural and Environmental Engineering, 2011)
    During the course of this study, a database of static load tests carried out on piles installed in varying ground conditions in Ireland, including fine and coarse grained soil and rock, was compiled. Site investigation ...
  • Design and analysis of concentrically braced steel frames under seismic loading 

    Hunt, Alan D. (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). Department of Civil, Structural and Environmental Engineering, 2013)
    The lateral resistance of many steel framed structures is provided by diagonal brace members and their connections to the frame. Although concentrically braced frames (CBFs) are common throughout international design ...
  • Detection and assessment of damage in underwater marine structures using image processing based techniques 

    O'Byrne, Michael (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). Department of Civil, Structural and Environmental Engineering, 2015)
    The monitoring of underwater structures is often beset by limited access, exorbitant costs and inherent safety issues. This thesis focuses on developing and implementing automated image processing based Non-Destructive ...
  • The Detection of Infarcted Stroke Tissue via Localised Sodium Concentration Measurements: A Non-Invasive Approach 

    WETTERLING, FRIEDRICH (Trinity College Dublin, Trinity College Dublin, 2009)
    Quantitative 23Na Magnetic Resonance Imaging (qNa-MRI) is a non-invasive technique which has considerable potential for measuring Tissue Sodium Concentration (TSC) changes in pathological brain tissue states such as ...
  • Determination of a reduced dataset to guide forecasting of energy use in commercial buildings 

    Shiel, Patrick Andrew (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). Department of Civil, Structural and Environmental Engineering, 2014)
    The importance of reducing energy usage in buildings is difficult to overstate. Approximately 10% of all energy consumed in the EU and the US is used on the provision of occupant thermal comfort in commercial buildings. ...
