    • Resilience, Vulnerability, and Adaptive Capacity: Implications for System Performance 

      Dalziell, E.P.; McManus, S.T. (University of Canterbury. Civil and Natural Resources Engineering, 2004)
      As our infrastructure and organisations become ever more networked and interdependent there is a growing need to focus on managing overall system risk. In particular, there is a need to focus not only on the vulnerability ...
    • Resilience: Great Concept but What Does it Mean? 

      Seville, E. (University of Canterbury. Civil and Natural Resources Engineering, 2008)
      In 2003, when our New Zealand based Resilient Organisations team first embarked on resilience research, few organizations were talking ‘resilience’. The term had been used in a variety of academic disciplines ranging from ...
    • Resilient Infrastructure 

      CAE (Centre for Advanced Engineering, University of Canterbury, 2005)

    • Resin and resin canals in families and clones of Pinus radiata (D. Don) 

      Govina, James Kudjo (University of Canterbury, 2017)
      Resin and resin canals are seen as defects in softwoods. The occurrence of these defects in appearance-grade radiata pine timbers causes devaluation. Living trees use resins and the resin canal networks as a defensive ...
    • Resin spotting in medium density fibreboard. 

      Cooper, Michael David (University of Canterbury, 1992)
      This project investigated the problem of resin spotting in Medium Density Fibreboard, (MDF). It tried to determine the cause and also ways to eliminate the problem preferably from the source. The object was to identify ...
    • Resonances in compound processes 

      Mullowney, Paul; James, Alex (University of Canterbury, 2006)
      The first-exit time of a compound process with strictly positive jumps reaching a horizontal barrier is considered. The first-exit time distribution for the specific case of Poisson arrivals and gamma distributed jump ...
    • Resonant and Non-Resonant Sound Transmission Loss of a Finite Panel 

      Trevathan, J.W.; Pearse, J.R. (University of Canterbury. Mechanical Engineering., 2006)
      The contributions of resonant and non-resonant components to the overall sound transmission through a finite panel have been studied numerically. It was seen that the fundamental mode makes a significant contribution to ...
    • A resonant DC link inverter for an electric vehicle 

      Hong, Z.; Duke, R.; Round, S. (University of Canterbury. Electrical and Computer Engineering., 2000)
      This paper presents the development of a resonant DC link inverter for an electric vehicle application. The resonant link frequency is approximately 70kHz and the inverter drives a low voltage 2.2kW AC induction motor. The ...
    • A resonant DC link inverter for an electric vehicle. 

      Hong, Zhenyue (University of Canterbury. Electrical and Electronic Engineering, 2000)
      Voltage source PWM inverters have been the mam choice in electric vehicles, because of circuit simplicity and rugged control schemes. The inverters, however, suffer from high switching losses, high switching stresses, ...
    • A resonant transformer for high voltage testing of generator stators 

      Bodger, P.S.; Enright, W. (University of Canterbury. Electrical and Computer Engineering., 2003)
      A partial core transformer has been designed such that its magnetising reactance has been matched to a generator stator insulation capacitance. The reactive current drawn by the stator insulation is provided by the transformer ...

      A partial core transformer has been designed such that its magnetising reactance has been matched to a generator stator insulation capacitance. The reactive current drawn by the stator insulation is provided by the transformer ...
    • Resource selection by the brushtail possum (Trichosurus vulpecula Kerr) in a mixed red - silver beech (Nothofagus fusca - N. menziesii) forest, north Westland, New Zealand : a multi-scale, GIS-based approach 

      van Eyndoven, Erik (University of Canterbury. Forestry, 2003)
      Resource selection by the brushtail possum (Trichosurus vulpecula) was studied in a beech (Nothofagus) forest in order to elucidate possum ecology in an extensive forest type lacking extensive possum research. The study ...
    • Resource Stewardship and Waste Minimisation 

      Stone, Lesley (Centre for Advanced Engineering, University of Canterbury, 2003)
      This book examines the life cycle of products and the development of waste minimisation programmes that will make progress towards the goal of achieving optimal 'resource stewardship'. The goal is to advance environmental ...
    • Resource Structures as a Model of Concurrency 

      Hopkins, Jane Bridget (University of Canterbury. Mathematics and Statistics, 1996)
      In this report, we introduce a model of concurrency based on event structures which we call resource structures. We show how these structures can model concepts relating to resource management such as resource contention, ...
    • Resourcing for a resilient post-disaster reconstruction environment 

      Chang, Y.; Wilkinson, S.; Seville, E.; Potangaroa, R. (University of Canterbury. Civil and Natural Resources Engineering, 2010)
