      What is superficially referred to as ‘packing quality’, a myriad of geometrical parameters governing the interrelations between pores, has only been measured post-hoc in the form of separation efficiency. While several ...
    • 3D printing of porous polymeric materials for stationary phases of chromatography columns 

      Rezanavaz, Roya (University of Canterbury, 2018)
      The work described in this thesis focused on the creation of 3D printed chromatography columns using high internal phase emulsion polymer (polyHIPE) materials. The first step was to prepare and optimize a porous, polymeric ...

      his poster presents the ongoing development of a 3D Canterbury seismic velocity model which will be used in physics-based hybrid broadband ground motion simulation of the 2010-2011 Canterbury earthquakes. Velocity models ...
    • A 3D seismic velocity model for Canterbury, New Zealand for broadband ground motion simulation 

      Lee, R.L.; Bradley, B.A.; Ghisetti, F.; Pettinga, J.R.; Hughes, M.W.; Thomson, E.M. (University of Canterbury. Civil and Natural Resources Engineering, 2014)
      This poster presents the on-going development of a new 3D seismic velocity model of Canterbury, New Zealand. The intention of the model is to provide the 3D crustal structure in the region at multiple length scales for ...
    • 3D time-lapse imaging of polygonal patterned ground in the McMurdo dry valleys of Antarctica 

      Godfrey, M.J.; Bannister, M.T.; Nobes, D.; Sletten, R.S. (University of Canterbury. Geological Sciences., 2008)
      We surveyed four sets of polygons at 0.5 m line spacing using 100 and 200 MHz antennas for 3D GPR imaging at two field locations in the McMurdo Dry Valleys of Antarctica, one in Victoria Valley and the other in Beacon Valley. ...
