Development of a method for the characterisation of the compliance and stiffness matrices of uncoupled laminates
The mechanical behaviour of composite materials is defined by three matrices of stiffness/compliance : in-plane, flexure and coupling matrix between in-plane and flexure. The present work gives a method of test to ...
Implementation of a customer relationship management system in an SME
The research conducted for this thesis has been carried out over a two year period as part of the Mobile Tools and Technology for customer care (MOTTO) project. The project was funded under the Applied Grant scheme ...
Towards a machine enabled semantic framework for the distributed engineering design
The overall aim of this thesis is to identify and propose a suitable architectural framework for supporting cooperation processes and therefore enabling semantics within the distributed engineering design environment. The ...
An experimental characterisation of ground and air source heat pump technologies in the Irish maritime climate
As energy derived from hydrocarbons now constitutes 87% of worldwide energy consumption there has been mounting concern about the potential negative environmental, economic and sustainability impacts of such over reliance ...
A sustainability and eco-innovation framework for manufacturing SMEs
Since the industrial revolution, manufacturing has been a major contributor to environmental damage, through pollution, the depletion of resources and the consumption of energy and the related burning of fossil fuels (IPCC, ...
