    • Duration of Early Vocalisations 

      Gregory, A.M.; Tabain, M.; Robb, M.P. (University of Canterbury. Communication Disorders, 2013)
      The duration of three infants’ vocalisations were examined during a six-month longitudinal study. In contrast to most other infant research, this study included in its analysis all vocalisations including those deemed ...
    • Duration of earthquake ground motion anticipated at sites in New Zealand 

      Bradley BA; Chandramohan R; Horspool N (2018)
      Source-specific conditional distributions of the duration of ground motion anticipated at a set of representative sites in New Zealand are computed using a procedure based on the generalised conditional intensity measure ...
    • Duration of earthquake ground motion: Influence on structural collapse risk and integration in design and assessment practice 

      Chandramohan R (2016)
      Amplitude, frequency content, and duration are widely recognized as the key characteristics of earthquake ground motions that influence structural response. Yet, in current structural design and assessment practice, ...
    • Durational correlates of post-vocalic voicing in English spoken by English and Spanish speakers 

      Cunningham-Andersson, U. (University of Canterbury. School of Teacher Education, 1987)
    • Durative achievements and individual-level predicates on events 

      Kearns, K. (University of Canterbury. School of Classics and Linguistics., 2003)
      Ryle (1949, Chapter V) discusses a range of predicates which in different ways exemplify a property I shall call quasi-duality – they appear to report two actions or events in one predicate. Although Ryle's concerns were ...
    • Dust and gas in local galaxies in the equatorial H-ATLAS fields 

      De Vis, Pieter (University of Canterbury, 2016)
      One of the main challenges for extragalactic astronomy is to understand how the baryonic components of galaxies evolve from simple clouds of unenriched atomic gas into complex systems consisting of stars, dust, heavy ...
    • The dust budget crisis in high-redshift submillimetre galaxies 

      Rowlands, K.; Gomez, H.L.; Dunne, L.; Aragon-Salamanca, A.; Dye, S.; Maddox, S.; da Cunha, E.; van der Werf, P. (University of Canterbury. Physics and Astronomy, 2014)
      We apply a chemical evolution model to investigate the sources and evolution of dust in a sample of 26 high-redshift (z > 1) submillimetre galaxies (SMGs) from the literature, with complete photometry from ultraviolet ...
    • Dust Shaken out of a Book into an Empty Skull? Higher education culture in Britain and Canada 

      Stiles, David R. (University of Canterbury. Management, Marketing, and Entrepreneurship, 1992)
      The result of two years' Doctoral research into linkages between internal organisational processes and strategy implementation, this paper presents an unique methodology developed, piloted and successfully applied in ...
    • Dwelling Among the Waves: Modernist Architecture, Walter Benjamin, and the Mythology of Modernity. 

      van Drunen, Martha Elke (University of Canterbury. Social and Political Sciences, 2011)
      For Walter Benjamin, architecture is the clearest expression of the ‘latent mythology’ that underlies any historical epoch; by engaging with works of modernist architecture in continental Europe during the first half of ...
    • Dynamic analysis of an optical MEMS device. 

      Carey, Mark William (University of Canterbury. Mechanical Engineering, 2003)
      This thesis formulates, implements and validates an integrated framework for analysing Micro-Electro-Mechanical-Systems (MEMS) devices including non-linear electrostatic loading, large deflections, structural contact and ...
    • Dynamic Artificial Neural Networks for Centroid Prediction in Astronomy 

      Weddell, S.J.; Webb, R.Y. (University of Canterbury. Electrical and Computer Engineering, 2006)
      Motivation for this research is the real-time restoration of faint astronomical images through turbulence over a large field-of-view. A simulation platform was developed to predict the centroid of a science object, convolved ...
    • A dynamic assessment of single word learning in two year old late talkers. 

      Singer, Victoria Lena Ruth (University of Canterbury. Department of Communication Disorders, 2014)
      Purpose: Between 13% and 20% of two year olds are late to talk; of those, up to 25% are at risk of persistent language impairment. This highly exploratory study examined whether a dynamic assessment (DA) of single word ...
    • Dynamic behaviour of brain and surrogate materials under ballistic impact 

      Soltanipour Lazarjan, Milad (University of Canterbury. Mechanical Engineering, 2015)
      In the last several decades the number of the fatalities related to criminally inflicted cranial gunshot wounds has increased (Aarabi et al.; Jena et al., 2014; Mota et al., 2003). Back-spattered bloodstain patterns are ...
    • Dynamic Behaviour of LVL-Concrete Composite Flooring Systems 

      Abd Ghafar, Nor Hayati (University of Canterbury, 2015)
      An LVL-concrete composite floor (LCC) is a hybrid flooring system, which was adapted from a timber-concrete composite (TCC) floor system. By replacing the timber or glulam joists with LVL joists, the strength of the floor ...
    • The dynamic behaviour of packed distillation columns 

      Jordan, P. J. (University of Canterbury. Chemical Engineering, 1977)
      The dynamic behaviour of packed distillation columns separating binary mixtures has been studied, both by means of a computer simulation, and by experimental testing of a column. The numerical solution of the partial ...
    • Dynamic behaviour of reinforced concrete bridges in freezing conditions 

      Plotnikova, Anastasiia; Wotherspoon, Liam; Beskhyroun, Sherif (2019)
      The strong influence of ambient temperature variation, and especially freezing of near-surface soils, on the transverse modal response of the bridges in cold earthquake-prone regions has been shown in previous research. ...
    • The dynamic behaviour of reinforced-concrete bridge piers subjected to New Zealand seismicity. 

      Dodd, Larry (University of Canterbury. Department of Civil Engineering, 1992)
