    Kenshel, Omran Mohamed (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). Department of Civil, Structural and Environmental Engineering, 2009)
    The number of deteriorating bridges due to chloride-induced corrosion increases annually as does the cost of inspection, maintenance, repair and where necessary replacement. Meanwhile, budgets made available to bridge ...
  • 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 ...
  • Interface shear behaviour of precast prestressed concrete beams with slebers webs in beam and slab construction 

    SLEVIN, MICHAEL (Trinity College Dublin. School of Engineering. Disc of Civil Structural & Environmental Eng, 2019)
    All over the world precast prestressed concrete bridge beams are commonly used in small to medium sized highway and railway bridges, i.e. 20-50m spans. The majority of these bridges are built using I and U shaped precast ...
  • An investigation into the causes, impacts and measures to deal with diatom bloom in Vartry Reservoir 

    SHI, YUNHONG (Trinity College Dublin. School of Engineering. Disc of Civil Structural & Environmental Eng, 2019)
    In Ireland, there are more than 12,000 lakes and lakes and reservoirs are the main source of drinking water for two million people. Consisting of upper lake and lower lake, Vartry Reservoir is a key drinking water source ...
  • An investigation of domestic wastewater treatment systems impacts on surface waters and applicability of wastewater fingerprinting compounds 

    BROPHY, LAURA (Trinity College Dublin. School of Engineering. Disc of Civil Structural & Environmental Eng, 2018)
    This research estimated the P and N loading to surface water arising from domestic wastewater treatment systems (DWWTS) and compared a range of wastewater fingerprinting techniques for identifying sources of surface water ...
  • Investigation of Phosphorescent Materials for Photovoltaic Device Applications 

    OLIVEIRA, MOACIR GOMES DE (Trinity College Dublin. School of Engineering. Disc of Civil Structural & Environmental Eng, 2019)
