    MARTINEZ-PASTOR, BEATRIZ (Trinity College Dublin. School of Engineering. Disc of Civil Structural & Environmental Eng, 2018)
    The increment of extreme weather events is creating larger, and more frequent problems among infrastructure systems worldwide. In this thesis, the focus is on traffic networks by the analysis of a recent concept, the ...
  • The Response and Optimisation of Hybrid Wind Turbine Towers 

    KENNA, ALAN PATRICK (Trinity College Dublin. School of Engineering. Disc of Civil Structural & Environmental Eng, 2019)
    This thesis investigates the response and optimisation of wind turbine tower structures with a particular emphasis on hybrid steel-concrete towers. The wind turbine blades with tower interaction are represented through ...
  • A review of structural failures in Ireland 

    DUCKENFIELD, IAN JAMES (Trinity College Dublin. School of Engineering. Disc of Civil Structural & Environmental Eng, 2018)
    Many technical papers have been written and presented to the structural engineering community in Ireland giving details of major projects successfully completed. These projects are on time and under budget. Far more ...
  • A review of the engineering constraints and project management challenges involved in utilising Scot’s Church as a heritage asset through responsible adaptive reuse and conservation strategies 

    Smith, Oisín
    In the field of structural building, there has been a rising popularity in adaptive reuse of older structures, which stems from a variety of stimuli. Apart from preserving built heritage, providing old buildings with new ...
  • Seismic analysis of braced plan irregular structures using hybrid testing and numerical modelling 

    McCrum, Daniel P. (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). Department of Civil, Structural and Environmental Engineering, 2012)
    The seismic behaviour of concentrically braced plan irregular structures has been investigated experimentally and numerically. An experimental programme consisting of twenty-four substructured soft-RT hybrid tests of a ...
  • Seismic reliability assessment of ageing integral bridges 

    Ní Choine, Mairéad (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). Department of Civil, Structural and Environmental Engineering, 2014)
    This thesis carries out a tune dependent seismic risk assessment of ageing integral bridges as well as providing a comparison between the seismic performance of integral and jointed bridges.
  • Semi-active vibration control of wind turbine blades using a time-frequency approach 

    Arrigan, John (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). Department of Civil, Structural and Environmental Engineering, 2010)
    This thesis proposes the use of structural control devices to mitigate the response of wind turbines, particularly the blades. Theoretical and experimental investigations have been carried out to ascertain the effectiveness ...
  • Short-term traffic condition variables forecasting using Artificial Neural Networks 

    Dunne, Stephen (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). Department of Civil, Structural and Environmental Engineering, 2013)
    Short-term traffic forecasting (STTF) is a critical element of Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS). The use of ITS is vital in order to ensure the sustainability and increase the efficiency of the transportation network. ...
