  • 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 development of scaffolds for bone tissue engineering 

    Buckley, Conor Timothy (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). Department of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering, 2007)
    Many of the current tissue-engineering scaffold-based strategies have suffered from limited cell depth viability when cultured in vitro, with viable cells existing within the outer 250-500 μm from the fluid-scaffold ...
  • 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 ...
  • Pneumatic artificial muscles for human-friendly mobile service robots 

    CULLINAN, MICHAEL (Trinity College Dublin. School of Engineering. Discipline of Mechanical & Manuf. Eng, 2019)
    Developing robotic systems which can operate in complex, human centred environments is a major challenge, but one which holds the promise of dramatically improving human living standards in several areas including ...
  • 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 ...
  • Post-menopausal osteoporosis and the effect of remodelling on bone material 

    Brady, Kevin (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). Department of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering, 2007)
    This work concerns the relationship between bone and its environment and how changes in this environment affect its mechanical behaviour. More particularly, it concerns how the alteration of this environment following ...
  • Power and position-oriented process monitoring of freeform abrasive machining 

    Brazel, Emma (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). Department of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering, 2013)
    Abrasive machining is used for the generation of freeform femoral implant surfaces in the biomedical industry. The abrasive machining operation is typified by high speed material removal in multiple axes, difficult-to-machine ...
  • 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 ...
  • Predictions of Rotor Broadband Noise 

    Botha, Jason (Trinity College Dublin. School of Engineering. Discipline of Mechanical & Manuf. Eng, 2018)
    This thesis presents an enhanced method for predicting aerodynamically generated broadband noise, produced by rotating machinery. The method improves on existing work for Vertical Axis Wind Turbine (VAWT) noise prediction, ...
  • Process, precedent, and community : new learning environments for engineering design 

    Holland, Dónal (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). Department of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering, 2014)
    Project-based design courses are an increasingly conunon component of engineering education. Most engineering schools have traditionally emphasized the analytical and scientific aspects of the discipline, and an increase ...
  • Quantitative accoustic analysis of inhaler sounds for the objective assessment of inhaler adherence in patients with chronic respiratory diseases 

    Holmes, Martin S. (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). Department of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering, 2016)
    Asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) are two of the most prevalent chronic respiratory disorders. Over 800 million people suffer from these diseases and over four million people die annually. Although ...
  • Reconfigurable manufacturing process monitoring systems 

    Morgan, Jeff (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). Department of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering, 2016)
    Performance measurement is indispensable to manufacturing, due to the fact that if the efficiency of an activity cannot be measured it could not be effectively controlled. Recent trends in process monitoring systems point ...
  • Reconfigurable test execution systems machine and process development 

    MARTIN, CIAN (Trinity College Dublin. School of Engineering. Discipline of Mechanical & Manuf. Eng, 2018)
