  • Numerical investigation of woven wire mesh screens for landing gear aerodynamic flow and noise control 

    OKOLO, PATRICK NWOSA (Trinity College Dublin. School of Engineering. Discipline of Mechanical & Manuf. Eng, 2018)
    Recently, acoustic engineers, researchers, and relevant institutions seek to reduce noise levels associated with the aerodynamic complexities of an aircraft, particularly within close proximity to airport communities. The ...
  • Numerical modelling of directional solidification in metal alloys 

    BATTAGLIOLI, SARA (Trinity College Dublin. School of Engineering. Discipline of Mechanical & Manuf. Eng, 2018)
    Manufacturing routes for metal alloy components often involve solidification processes. In order to obtain a product that meets given requirements in terms of mechanical properties, the ability to predict the grain structure ...
  • Numerical modelling of parametric resonance of a heaving point absorber wave energy converter 

    Tarrant, Kevin R (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). Department of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering, 2015)
  • 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 ...
  • On the use of indentation technique to assess fracture properties of ceramics at the microscale 

    Payraudeau, Nathalie (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). Department of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering, 2011)
    Classic methods to determine fracture properties of ceramics (like Single-Edge Notched Beam or Compact Tension) are accurate at the macroscale but inappropriate to estimate local fracture properties which are decisive at ...
  • 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 ...
  • Passive mechanical properties of skeletal muscle in compression 

    Van Loocke, Mélanie (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). Department of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering, 2007)
    The compressive properties of skeletal muscle are of prime interest in applications where muscle tissue is submitted to compressive loads; e.g., to improve the design of protective equipment for vehicular occupants, to ...
  • Polymer / clay nanocomposites 

    Istrate, Oana-Mihaela (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). Department of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering, 2012)
    Polymer/clay nanocomposites are a new class of materials with unique properties that are not shared by the pristine polymers or the conventional composites. These materials may present enhanced mechanical, themial, barrier ...
