  • Prediciton of fatigue failure in engineering components using the finite element method 

    Wang, Ge (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). Department of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering, 2000)
    Prediction of fatigue failure in engineering artefects is becoming increasingly important as we enter the third millennium; more catastrophic fatigue failures will occur as engineers push the limits of design even further ...
  • Investigating the applicability of single-channel electroencephalography in cochlear implant patients 

    Valdes, Alejandro Lopez (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). Department of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering, 2017)
    Hearing impairment affects over 5% of the population worldwide. Namely, about a quarter of a million adults in Ireland are estimated to have permanent hearing impairment due mainly to ageing and/or noise exposure. Cochlear ...
  • Two-phase flow and heat transfer in reflux thermosyphons 

    Smith, Kate (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). Department of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering, 2016)
    Improved cooling technologies are becoming necessary in electronic applications, specifically Radio Frequency Power Amplifiers (RFPA) installed in tower-top Remote Radioheads (RRH). Current methods of cooling are becoming ...
  • Investigations into the mechanical properties of insect cuticle 

    Parle, Eoin E. (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). Department of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering, 2016)
    Insect cuticle is a composite material comprised of chitin fibres embedded in a protein matrix. It performs a wide variety of functions across class Insecta, and as such displays a wide bandwidth of material properties. ...
  • A biomechanical analysis of the trunk and spine during paediatric cerebral palsy gait 

    Kiernan, Damien (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). Department of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering, 2017)
    Movement pathologies in the lower limbs of children with cerebral palsy are well established in the literature. However, movement pathologies of the upper body, in particular the trunk, are less well defined. Mechanical ...
