  • Undrained Triaxial Experimental Investigations and Hyperviscoplastic Modelling of Peat Materials 

    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 ...
  • Urban development : use of a neural network mode choice model 

    Heaney, Quentin R. D. (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). Department of Civil, Structural and Environmental Engineering, 2002)
    It is a requirement of the EU that member states undertake the development of urban transport in a sustainable manner. According to the EU the key elements in a sustainable strategy are: -- reduction of the adverse impact ...
  • Urban freight in Dublin : an integrated policy framework for sustainable distribution 

    Finnegan, Clare (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). Department of Civil, Structural and Environmental Engineering, 2010)
    Urban goods movement is essential to life in a city. Every product and service we avail of must be transported from where it is sourced to where it is sold. At a wider level, urban freight transport is the engine driving ...
  • Use of high performance computing in the assessment of congestion charging in the Greater Dublin Area 

    O'Cearbhaill, Eoin Alexander (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). Department of Civil, Structural and Environmental Engineering, 2004)
    Traffic demand management is part of the package of measures currently being implemented to offset the imbalance between transport demand and supply on the transportation network of the Greater Dublin Area (GDA). An analysis ...
  • Vacuum consolidation field test on a pseudo-fibrous peat 

    Osorio-Salas, Juan Pablo (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). Department of Civil, Structural and Environmental Engineering, 2012)
    Several different ground improvement methods have been used to improve soft highly compressible organic soils such as peat. Vacuum consolidation is a ground improvement technique developed in the 1950’s, in which the ...
  • Vibration control of offshore wind turbines using tuned liquid column dampers 

    Colwell, Shane (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). Department of Civil, Structural and Environmental Engineering, 2008)
  • Vibration control of structures using active and semi-active tuned mass dampers 

    Collins, Ruth (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). Department of Civil, Structural and Environmental Engineering, 2006)
    This study addresses the vibration control of tall and flexible structures, such as wind turbine towers (WTTs). Investigations into the use of single and multiple tuned mass dampers (TMDs) with passive, active and semi-active ...
  • Vibration control of wind turbines with variable rotor sped and grid faults 

    Staino, Andrea (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). Department of Civil, Structural and Environmental Engineering, 2014)
    The aim of this thesis is to propose, design and analyze vibration mitigation systems in wind turbines. Formulations have been developed to include variations of the rotational speed of the blades. The control methodologies ...
  • Wastewater as a thermal resource: Exploitation strategies, design methodologies & prototype development 

    SPRIET, JAN LENNY (Trinity College Dublin. School of Engineering. Disc of Civil Structural & Environmental Eng, 2020)
    The disruption of the climate was identified as one of nine planetary boundaries, and is one for which we are reaching the limits of safe operation on this planet. To that effect the European Commission launched the European ...
