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 ...

The blue-rayed Helcion pellucidum is a herbivorous mollusc found on intertidal and sublittoral laminarian algae.
A phytochemical study of ilex and betula species
A phytochemical study of the outer bark of native common holly (Ilex aquifolium), led to the isolation and identification of nine novel fatty acid esters of the pentacyclic triterpene a-amyrin. These compounds were the ...
Development of an expert system interface for the automated analysis of the sheet drawing metal forming process using finite element analysis techniques
The objective of the work presented in this thesis was to develop an expert system for sheet metal forming. In doing so an examination, of implicit and explicit Finite Element Analysis (FE.A) codes and methodologies was ...
Crustaceans and biodiversity crisis
Talitrid amphipod crustaceans were recorded at about 240 sites around ireland using both published records and recent seashore surveys. Five species were present, the beachfleas Orchestia gammarellus and O. mediterranea, ...
Determination of selenium in selenium enriched yeast.
Selenium, although a rare mineral, is widely distributed in minute amounts in virtually all materials of the earth’s crust, its average abundance is approximately ~0.09ppm. Selenium is rarely found in its native state i.e. ...
