Glacier mass change is an important indicator of climate change, though long-term, spatially-distributed observations of glacier mass changes are relatively scarce. Historic DEMs based on topographic maps in regions such as Alaska have large errors, especially in the accumulation areas of...
Hydrogen fuelled vehicles are being deployed as a part of the deep decarbonisation strategy. Hydrogen fuelled cars are expected to provide the same level of experience and comfort as fossil fuel vehicles including driving range of at least 400-500 km, which requires 4-5 kg of hydrogen onboard of...
The inherently safer fuelling of a hydrogen storage container is a challenging problem. Independent on a container design, materials used, its volume, initial and nominal working pressure (NWP), temperature of delivering hydrogen, the regulation and standards require that the temperature inside...
Compressed gases energy storage technologies are widely used in different areas of our life. Compressed Natural Gas (CNG), Liquified Petroleum Gas (LPG), Compressed Gaseous Hydrogen (CGH2) vehicles and buses are hitting the roads, hydrogen trains and ships are at demonstration phase. The number...
The specific hazards and associated risks of hydrogen vehicles use in tunnels are largely unknown and thus prevention and mitigation strategies are not developed or validated. Previous activities were mainly focussed on the fire scenarios with fossil fuels and did not address the hydrogen...
Summary Liquified hydrogen (LH2) is the most efficient way to transport hydrogen over large distances at emerging state of hydrogen infrastructure when pipelines are not yet available to deliver hydrogen to refuelling stations and homes. This is the inherently safer way to store and distribute...
Pressure and thermal effects from large-scale deflagrations can be extremely hazardous due to the transition of initially laminar premixed combustion to the fast deflagration and finally through deflagration-to-detonation transition (DDT) to detonation. The role of various flame front...
Glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) is an incertin hormone secreted postprandially from intestinal L-cells with established actions to increase glucose-dependent insulin secretion and reduce appetite [Irwin & Flatt 2015]. Similarly, neurotensin (NT), is a 13 amino acid neuropeptide secreted by...
Overview In REF 2014 the Irish and Celtic Studies Research Institute was assessed as having: 100% outstanding or very considerable impact in research 66% of overall research world-leading or internationally excellent 90% of research environment internationally excellent or world-leading The...
Overview Linguistics at Ulster University has a strong research focus and a lively research atmosphere. PhD Researchers are valued members of the research community and rapidly become part of an active research group. They take part in regular staff-student seminars where current research is...
