  • An evaluation of the potential impacts of traffic management strategies on air pollution, emissions and public health in Dublin. 

    TANG, JIAYI (Trinity College Dublin. School of Engineering. Disc of Civil Structural & Environmental Eng, 2019)
    Nowadays, air pollution is a huge threat to human health. It is responsible for 6.4 million premature deaths worldwide per year, which is 72% of the 9 million deaths per year from all types of pollution. Vulnerable groups, ...
  • Examining the efficiency of autonomous vehicles in highway transport 

    REZAEI, MOHAMMADAMIN (Trinity College Dublin. School of Engineering. Disc of Civil Structural & Environmental Eng, 2020)
    This study examined the efficiency of Autonomous Vehicles (AVs) in highway transport. The study focused on the effects that AVs might have on factors associated with the adoption of AVs such as safety, traffic, cost, the ...
  • Experimental and theoretical investigations of pile and penetrometer installation in clay 

    Gill, David R. (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). Department of Civil, Structural and Environmental Engineering, 2000)
    This thesis advances our understanding of the type of ground movements and strains that take place during installation of closed-ended piles and penetrometers in clay, with particular reference to penetrometers with flat ...
  • Experimental investigation of arching in sand using a trapdoor and miniature tunnel boring machine 

    Lochaden, Andrew L. E. (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). Department of Civil, Structural and Environmental Engineering, 2012)
    Tunnel construction inevitably causes ground movements in the surrounding soil mass, which can have a negative effect on adjacent surface and sub-surface structures in the congested urban environment. Therefore in order ...
  • Experimental investigation on the stabilisation of Irish peat 

    Hebib, Samir (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). Department of Civil, Structural and Environmental Engineering, 2001)
    This thesis presents the findings of a study of the behaviour of a typical Midland Irish peat when mixed with a binder. The study shows that the strength of the peat can be considerably increased by the addition of various ...
  • Experimental investigations of driven pile group behaviour in Belfast soft clay 

    McCabe, Bryan A. M. (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). Department of Civil, Structural and Environmental Engineering, 2002)
    In 1996, a site adjacent to Kinnegar Sewage Treatment Plant, near Belfast, was made available (by the Northern Ireland Department of the Environment) to Trinity College Dublin to perform load tests on driven piles. Since ...
  • Facade integrated concrete solar collectors 

    O HEGARTY, RICHARD DIARMUID (Trinity College Dublin. School of Engineering. Disc of Civil Structural & Environmental Eng, 2018)
    Concrete solar collectors are a type of solar thermal collector that are formed by embedding pipes within a layer of concrete that acts as the solar energy absorber. Concrete is a cheap, durable and abundant material that ...
  • Field tests on single piles subjected to lateral and combined axial and lateral loads
