    • An s-domain model of an HVdc converter 

      Todd, S.; Wood, A.R.; Bodger, P.S. (University of Canterbury. Electrical and Computer Engineering, 1997)
      This paper describes a technique to model an HVdc converter installation in the s-domain. A system equivalent is developed, utilising a frequency domain model, allowing the closed loop frequency response to be expressed. ...
    • Safe, effective, and patient-specific glycaemic control in neonatal intensive care. 

      Dickson, Jennifer Launa (University of Canterbury. Mechanical Engineering, 2015)
      Very premature infants often experience high blood sugar levels as a result of incomplete metabolic development, illness, and stress. High blood sugar levels have been associated with a range of worsened outcomes and ...

      Background: The changes in metabolic pathways and metabolites due to critical illness result in a highly complex and dynamic metabolic state, making safe, effective management of hyperglycemia and hypoglycemia difficult. ...
    • Saltwater Modelling of Fire Gas Flow through a Horizontal Ceiling Opening 

      Le Quesne, Marcus Andrew (University of Canterbury. Civil and Natural Resources Engineering, 2010)
      When fires occur in domestic or commercial buildings it is the smoke from the fire that leads to far more injury and death than the heat produced from the flames. Understanding the movement of smoke within the fire compartment ...
    • Sampling strategies and reconstruction techniques for magnetic resonance imaging 

      Blakeley, Nicholas D. (University of Canterbury. Electrical and Computer Engineering, 2003)
      In magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), samples of the object's spectrum are measured in the spatial frequency domain (k-space). For a number of reasons there is a desire to reduce the time taken to gather measurements. The ...
    • Sampling tree breeding trials 

      Apiolaza, L.A.; Moltchanova, E. (University of Canterbury. School of Forestry, 2016)
    • Sangaku: A Mathematical, Artistic, Religious, and Diagrammatic Examination 

      Hosking, Rosalie (University of Canterbury, 2016)
      Between the 17th and 19th centuries, mathematically orientated votive tablets appeared in Shinto shrines and Buddhist temples all over Japan. Known as sangaku, they contained problems of a largely geometrical nature. The ...
    • The Sato-Tate Distribution in Thin Parametric Families of Elliptic Curves 

      Bretèche RDL; Sha M; Shparlinski IE; Voloch JF (2015)
      We obtain new results concerning the Sato-Tate conjecture on the distribution of Frobenius traces over single and double parametric families of elliptic curves. We consider these curves for values of parameters having ...
    • Saving irrigation water by accounting for windbreaks 

      de Vries, T.T.; Cochrane, T.A.; Galtier, A. (University of Canterbury. Civil and Natural Resources Engineering, 2010)
      Water for irrigation in the Canterbury region of New Zealand is becoming an increasingly precious commodity as it is in many other areas of the world. Adequate use of this resource will define the economical and environmental ...
    • Scaffolding and Fading Problem Selection in SQL-Tutor 

      Mitrovic, A.; Martin, B. (University of Canterbury. Computer Science and Software Engineering., 2003)
      Scaffolding is widely accepted as an effective strategy to use in learning environments. It is also agreed that for successful learning, scaffolding must fade to allow the learner to be in control of his/her own learning ...
    • Scaffolding answer explanation in a data normalization tutor 

      Mitrovic, A. (University of Canterbury. Computer Science and Software Engineering., 2005)
      Self-explanation is one of the most effective learning strategies, resulting in deep knowledge. In this paper, we discuss how NORMIT supports self-explanation. NORMIT is a constraint-based tutor that teaches data normalization. ...
    • Scalable and adaptable security modelling and analysis. 

      Hong, Jin Bum (University of Canterbury. Computer Science and Software Engineering, 2015)
      Modern networked systems are complex in such a way that assessing the security of them is a difficult task. Security models are widely used to analyse the security of these systems, which are capable of evaluating the ...
