Timber and Harbours: Insights into Sustainability in Design & Construction

The built environment evolves across time. In that time, the materials used in construction are worn down both by the environment and through persistent use, leading to the replacement of materials and the evolution or demolition of buildings. The energy used and carbon emitted during the manufacture of materials used in buildings is understood as ‘embodied’ energy and carbon, which is a measure of the impact that these materials have had on our environment.

Mechanical Engineering Lecturer is Keynote Speaker at UCD Annual Teaching and Learning Conference

Barry Brophy, school of Mechanical and Materials Engineering, was one of two keynote speakers at the UCD annual Teaching and Learning conference on May 8th. His talk looked at the power of presentations within lectures – live, interactive, visual, personal, emotional, three-dimensional, multi-layered communications – and how unconscious biases lead people away from playing to these strengths in formal lectures.

Optimising the Last Mile of 5G Wireless Networks

Fifth-generation wireless networks, commonly known as 5G, seek to send data rapidly and reliably. To achieve this, a critical issue that needs to be resolved is
the ‘last hop’ between users’ devices and the serving base stations. Specifically the connections in the last hop of a wireless network can suffer from severe
interference, and it is expensive and inefficient to overcome that by allocating dedicated time slots or frequency bands to each device.
