      Brown, C.; Milke, M.; Seville, E. (University of Canterbury. Civil and Natural Resources Engineering, 2010)
      Purpose Lifelines (also referred to as Critical Infrastructure) are referred to here as the essential infrastructure and services that support the life of our community. In a disaster response and recovery situation, ...
    • Waste wood to heat: beyond technology to quality of life in Christchurch, New Zealand 

      Krumdieck, S. (University of Canterbury. Mechanical Engineering., 2004)
      Christchurch has a forty-year history of choking wintertime smog from wood and coal burning for domestic heating. A new methodology for Strategic Analysis of Complex Energy and Environment Systems (SACEES) was employed ...
    • Water Activity and Prediction of Colligative Properties: Forgotten Theory 

      Morison, K.R. (University of Canterbury. Chemical and Process Engineering, 2009)
    • Water Mist Suppression in Conjunction with Displacement Ventilation 

      Hume, Benjamin Piers (University of Canterbury, 2003)
      This study proposes and investigates a new type of water mist system where by air and water mist are blown into a fire compartment at low level using a displacement ventilation system. The air/water mist mixture enters ...
    • Water quality treatment and hydraulic efficacy of laboratory and field rain gardens. 

      Good, Joseph Francis (University of Canterbury. Department of Civil and Natural Resources Engineering, 2011)
      Urbanisation leads to increases in stormwater runoff, resulting in elevated contaminant (e.g. metal, sediment, and nutrient pollutant) loads, decreased local infiltration and greater peak flow intensities. Heavy metal ...
    • Waterfront planning: a window of opportunities for post-disaster reconstruction 

      Giovinazzi, O.; Giovinazzi, S. (University of Canterbury. Civil and Natural Resources Engineering, 2008)
      Waterfronts, where the land meets the ocean, see, lake, river or canal, are unique, finite resources representing, often, the best opportunity for community enhancement and enrichment. The waterfront development has ...
    • Wave envelope elements for acoustics 

      Macaulay, Gavin John (University of Canterbury. Mechanical Engineering, 1994)
      This thesis develops and extends a method for modelling acoustical propagation in unbounded domains. This wave envelope method is ideally suited for inclusion into existing acoustic finite element formulations. Results are ...
    • Wave Interaction With Tessellated Metamaterials 

      Eccleston, K.W. (University of Canterbury. Electrical and Computer Engineering., 2007)
      This paper considers the interaction of waves with a region comprised of square tiles that display either left-handed or right-handed propagation behaviour arranged in a checker-board tessellation. This structure exhibits ...
    • Wave-front sensing for adaptive optics in astronomy 

      van Dam, Marcos Alejandro (University of Canterbury. Electrical and Computer Engineering, 2002)
      Optical images of astronomical objects viewed through ground-based telescopes are blurred by the atmosphere. The atmosphere is turbulent and as a consequence the density of air is not evenly distributed. This results ...
    • Wave-particle duality: A proposed resolution 

      Pons, D.J.; Pons, A.D.; Pons, A.M.; Pons, A.J. (University of Canterbury. Mechanical Engineering, 2012)
      There are several integration problems of fundamental physics that still lack coherent solutions, the case in point being wave-particle duality. While empiricism and mathematical modelling have served physics well, they ...
    • Wavefront estimation in astronomical imaging. 

      Irwan, Roy (University of Canterbury, 1999)
      The challenge in building astronomical telescopes is to obtain the clearest possible image of a distant star, which should appear as a single point. Extended objects, such as galaxies and planets can be regarded as ...
    • Wavefront sensing and phase retrieval for astronomical imaging 

      Clare, Richard M. (University of Canterbury. Electrical and Computer Engineering, 2004)
      Images of astronomical objects captured by ground-based telescopes are distorted by the earth's atmosphere. The atmosphere consists of random time-varying layers of air of differing density and hence refractive index. These ...
    • Wavefront sensors in Adaptive Optics 

      Chew, Theam Yong (University of Canterbury. Electrical and Computer Engineering, 2008)
      Atmospheric turbulence limits the resolving power of astronomical telescopes by distorting the paths of light between distant objects of interest and the imaging camera at the telescope. After many light-years of travel, ...
    • Wavelength and time division multiplexing with lightpath trespassing for all-optical star local area networks 

      Macfarlane, Justin Ray (University of Canterbury. Computer Science, 1998)
      Many medium access control protocols have been proposed for optical wavelength division multiplexing local area networks with a star topology. These protocols range from those based on the concept of fixed-assignment of ...
    • Wavelets, ICA and statistical parametric mapping : with application to agitation-sedation modelling, detecting change points & to neuroinformatics 

      Kang, In (University of Canterbury, 2011)
      The wavelet methods developed, advocated and used in this thesis are primarily based on the discrete wavelet transform (DWT), wavelet thresholding and density estimation via wavelet smoothing. First a suite of wavelet ...
    • Waves generated by rock falls into reservoirs 

      Cornwall, M. W. M. (University of Canterbury. Engineering, 1971)
      Since the Vaiont Dam disaster in 1963, there has been an awareness among design engineers of the rockfall problem, where a large landslide into shallow water can generate water waves of appreciable size. The prediction of ...
    • WDM network design and destination conflicts 

      Yau, Victor (University of Canterbury. Computer Science, 1996)
