  • O'Donnell, Katherine (University College Cork, 2000)
    The dissertation proposes that one of the more fruitful ways of interpreting Burke's work is to evaluate him as an oral performer rather than a literary practitioner and it argues that in his voice can be heard the modulations ...
  • Byrne, Edmond P. (Institution of Chemical Engineers, 2010-11)
    Edmond Byrne argues that sustainability needs to quickly become the context for 21st century chemical engineering education to enable engineers be fit for purpose to address significant challenges ahead. He provides some ...
  • Brooks, Greg; Burton, Maxine; Cole, Pam; Szczerbinski, Marcin (The National Research and Development Centre for Adult Literacy and Numeracy (NRDC)., 2007)
    This was the largest study in Britain to date of the strategies used to teach reading in adult literacy classes (some classes were integrated with ICT and financial literacy for example), and the first attempt to correlate ...
  • Guiry, Kevin P.; Coles, Simon J.; Moynihan, Humphrey A.; Lawrence, Simon E. (American Chemical Society, 2008-01)
    The synthesis and crystal structure of 1-deoxy-d-lactose is described, as is its use as an additive in the crystallization of d-lactose. This has resulted in the formation of αβ-d-lactose for the first time at room ...
  • Bradley, John L.; Woods, Trevor; Murphy, S.; Keane, L.; O'Brien, Nora M. (School of Food and Nutritional Sciences, University College Cork., 2009-09)
    Evidence has emerged suggesting dietary calcium can modulate energy metabolism. Studies have linked whole body fat oxidation during free living activities to both acute and habitual calcium intake. The aim of this study ...
  • Lynch, C. O.; Hennessy, A. A.; Stanton, Catherine; Wathes, D. C.; Sreenan, J. M.; Diskin, M. G.; Kenny, D. A.; Childs, Stuart (Cambridge University Press, 2008-05)
    The objective of this experiment was to examine the effects of dietary n-3 or n-6 fatty acid (FA) supplementation on blood FA, metabolite and hormone concentrations, follicle size and dynamics and corpus luteum (CL) size. ...
  • Lynch, Robert P.; O'Dwyer, Colm; Buckley, D. Noel; Sutton, David; Newcomb, Simon B. (Electrochemical Society, 2006-01)
    The surface morphology and sub-surface porous structure of (100) n-InP following anodization in 1 - 10 mol dm-3 aqueous KOH were studied using linear sweep voltammetry (LSV) in combination with scanning electron microscopy ...
  • Leahy, Paul G.; Kiely, Gerard (Elsevier, 2012-08)
    Temperate grasslands have the potential to sequester carbon, helping to mitigate rising atmospheric CO2 concentrations. The ability of grasslands to absorb CO2 is influenced by site elevation, soil type, management practices, ...
  • Riboulet-Bisson, Eliette; Sturme, Mark H. J.; Jeffery, Ian B.; O'Donnell, Michelle M.; Neville, B. Anne; Forde, Brian M.; Claesson, Marcus J.; Harris, Hugh; Gardiner, Gillian E.; Casey, Patrick G.; Lawlor, Peadar G.; O'Toole, Paul W.; Ross, R. Paul (PLOS, 2012-02-17)
    Lactobacilli are Gram-positive bacteria that are a subdominant element in the human gastrointestinal microbiota, and which are commonly used in the food industry. Some lactobacilli are considered probiotic, and have been ...
  • Jesudoss, Pio; Mathewson, Alan; Wright, William M. D.; O'Flynn, Brendan; Stam, Frank (IEEE, 2008)
    The objective of this paper is to investigate the effect of the pad size ratio between the chip and board end of a solder joint on the shape of that solder joint in combination with the solder volume available. The shape ...
  • Pakrashi, Vikram; O'Connor, Alan J.; Basu, Biswajit (Taylor & Francis, 2010)
    This paper considers the effects of a tuned mass damper (TMD) on damaged bridge-accelerating quarter car vehicle interaction. The damage of the bridge is considered to be an open crack. The incorporation of a TMD to control ...
  • McKenna, Jill E.; Ray, Noel J.; McKenna, Gerald; Burke, Francis M. (Hindawi Publishing Corporation, 2011-11)
    Aim: To investigate (a) variability in powder/liquid proportioning (b) effect of the extremes of any such variability on diametral tensile strength (DTS), in a commercial zinc phosphate cement. Statistical analyses (a = ...
