    • DB drafter : a bubble diagrammer for database design 

      Wilson, R. P. (University of Canterbury, 1989)
      Many of the methods and models so far developed for database schema design have proved to be complex, highly theoretical in nature, and often have NP complete aspects. The method investigated in this project [Smith 1985] ...
    • DB-suite: experiences with three intelligent, web-based database tutors 

      Mitrovic, A.; Suraweera, P.; Martin, B.; Weerasinghe, A. (University of Canterbury. Computer Science and Software Engineering., 2004)
      E-learning is becoming more and more popular with the widespread use of computers and the Internet in educational institutions. Current e-learning courses are nearly always developed using course management systems (CMS), ...
    • DC-Bus Signaling: A Distributed Control Strategy for a Hybrid Renewable Nanogrid 

      Schonberger, J.; Duke, R.; Round, S.D. (University of Canterbury. Electrical and Computer Engineering., 2006)
      A dc nanogrid is a hybrid renewable system since renewable sources supply the average load demand, while storage and nonrenewable generation maintain the power balance in the presence of the stochastic renewable sources. ...
    • DDoS detection based on traffic self-similarity 

      Brignoli, Delio (University of Canterbury. Computer Science and Software Engineering, 2008)
      Distributed denial of service attacks (or DDoS) are a common occurrence on the internet and are becoming more intense as the bot-nets, used to launch them, grow bigger. Preventing or stopping DDoS is not possible without ...
    • Deadleg losses from a simulated domestic hot water system 

      Kwan, F. S-Y (University of Canterbury. Mechanical Engineering, 1985)
      This report considers the factors determining the deadleg losses of horizontal 'supply' hot water copper pipes, in a dynamic simulation rig of a domestic hot water system in the laboratory of the Mechanical Engineering ...
    • Dealing with Ambiguity in a Foreign Language ITS 

      Nicholas, Amanda (University of Canterbury, 2006)
      Two competing forces are at work in developing Intelligent Tutoring Systems: the desire to provide comprehensive feedback, and the desire to ensure that the knowledge learned will transfer to real life situations. One ...
    • Debris flows - Entrainment, Deposition and Travel Distance 

      Fannin, J.; Bowman, E.T. (University of Canterbury. Civil and Natural Resources Engineering., 2007)
      Landslides comprising soil, rock, water and organic material are termed debris slides or debris flows, with the distinction between the two made largely to recognize the form of movement along the event path as it ...
    • Debris flows : interior velocity profiles. 

      Bird, Joshua John (University of Canterbury. Department of Civil and Natural Resources Engineering, 2014)
      Debris flows are an increasingly potential hazard in steep mountain valleys. Obtaining understanding of this phenomena is made difficult by the highly complex interaction between fluid and solid particles of a wide range ...
