    The Hollow Cylinder Apparatus (HCA) is the only soil test device that can facilitate independent control of both the magnitudes and directions of the principal stresses. The stress history and loading conditions at a point ...
  • Development and application of an integrated air quality modelling system for traffic related pollution in urban areas 

    Reynolds, Anthony W. (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). Department of Civil, Structural and Environmental Engineering, 2001)
    An Air Quality Modelling System (AQMS) has been developed for metropolitan areas in Europe and applied in Dublin. The primary objective of this AQMS is to incorporate die latest knowledge on traffic and air quality at a ...
  • On-line monitoring of ambient hydrocarbon concentrations 

    Marnane, Ian Sean (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). Department of Civil, Structural and Environmental Engineering, 2001)
    The result of a comprehensive set of hydrocarbon measurements undertaken at an urban roadside, rural and industrial site in Ireland are presented. Very little reported data on ambient hydrocarbon measurements were previously ...
  • 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 ...
  • The future of Irish access transport : investigation, modelling and appraisal 

    Whitney, Warren James (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). Department of Civil, Structural and Environmental Engineering, 2002)
    This thesis aims to examine in detail a variety of possible strategies for the development of the Irish access transport system. The Irish access transport system is considered as being the system (passenger and freight) ...
  • 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 ...
  • Modelling of site-specific traffic loading on short to medium span bridges 

    Grave, Samuel (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). Department of Civil, Structural and Environmental Engineering, 2002)
  • Field tests on single piles subjected to lateral and combined axial and lateral loads 

    Phillips, Declan T. P. (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). Department of Civil, Structural and Environmental Engineering, 2003)
    This thesis describes the results of full-scale instrumented field studies on laterally loaded piles embedded in a layered soil. The research centred around tests on (i) 350mm square reinforced concrete piles driven through ...
  • Justification for the Implementation of Citywide GPS System 

    Jadoon, Adil Khan (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). Department of Civil, Structural and Environmental Engineering, 2003)
    Over the past few years, there has been an increase in the use of telematics in Demand Responsive Transport like taxis, so as to maximize the ever-increasing demand. To provide better customer service in the competitive ...
  • 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 ...
  • Air quality monitoring and modelling at motorway and roundabout sites in Ireland 

    Budd, Una (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). Department of Civil, Structural and Environmental Engineering, 2005)
