  • Optimisation of process parameters and tooling during friction stir welding of AA2024-T3 

    Trimble, Daniel (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). Department of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering, 2011)
    Friction stir welding (FSW) was invented and experimentally proven at The Welding Institute (TWI) in 1991. The process involves the joining of two metal pieces without melting by joining their molecules together. The tool ...
  • Bubble-induced Marangoni convection 

    O'Shaughnessy, Séamus (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). Department of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering, 2011)
    Thermal Marangoni convection about a 1mm radius air bubble situated under a heated wall of constant temperature immersed in a silicone oil layer (Pr = 220) of constant depth 5mm was experimentally investigated using a flow ...
  • On the acoustics of installed subsonic jets 

    O'Reilly, Ciarán J. (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). Department of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering, 2009)
    The reduction of community exposure to aircraft noise is an important consideration in the design of future aircraft. A review is currently under way of novel aircraft configurations, which may exploit the fuselage, wings ...
  • The relationship between blood perfusion and thermal measurements at the skin surface 

    Nicholson, Christopher P. B. (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). Department of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering, 2006)
    Blood perfusion is defined as the volumetric flow rate of blood through a given volume of tissue. Blood perfusion measurements are an important clinical indicator for many medical conditions but to date there is no cost ...
  • Aspects of the fatigue behaviour of acrylic bone cement 

    Murphy, Bruce Philip (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). Department of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering, 2002)
    Polymethylmethacrylate bone cement is used to fixate many orthopaedic implants. However, it is a brittle material, prone to damage accumulation leading to cement cracking and prosthesis loosening. The damage accumulation ...
