      Lu, D. X.; Saleh, M. F. (University of Canterbury. Civil and Natural Resources Engineering, 2016)
      Warm mix asphalt (WMA) has gradually become more popular in the roading industry. Compared to traditional hot mix asphalt (HMA), WMA can bring numerous benefits, such as lower energy consumption, lower emissions, and higher ...
    • Laboratory studies of aided blind mobility 

      Brabyn, J. A. (University of Canterbury. Electrical Engineering, 1978)
      A review is given of theories of blind mobility, and of efforts to obtain objective data for evaluating sensory aids for the blind. Techniques are developed for making objective measurements of locomotor control performance ...
    • Lagrangian and Eulerian models for simulating turbulent dispersion and coalescence of droplets within a spray 

      Nijdam, J.J.; Guo, B.; Fletcher, D.F.; Langrish, T.A.G. (University of Canterbury. Chemical and Process Engineering., 2006)
      Lagrangian and Eulerian modelling approaches are compared for simulating turbulent dispersion and coalescence of droplets within a spray. Both models predict similar droplet dispersion rates and shifts in droplet size ...
    • Lagrangian coherent structures 

      Botur, Matthew (University of Canterbury. Mathematics and Statistics, 2009)
      Though dynamical systems are a popular area of research these days, previous methods have dealt poorly with non-autonomous systems. Invariant manifolds are not easily found if they too are advected by the flow. Lagrangian ...
    • LAGS : Low cost animated graphics system 

      Williams, C. L. (University of Canterbury. Mathematics and Statistics, 1985)
      The aim of this project is to look at the development of a “low cost animated graphics system”. An animated graphics system is a system whereby graphic objects or scenes can be transformed over time so as to appear continuous ...
    • Laguerre near-planes of order four 

      Steinke, Günter F. (University of Canterbury. Dept. of Mathematics, 1999)
      We investigate Laguerre near-planes of order 4 and classify all such planes. We further develop various descriptions of these planes and characterise those Laguerre near-planes that can be extended to the Miquelian ...
    • Laminar flow devices for the measurement of diffusional coefficients of proteins and protein complexes 

      Nock, V.; Nivaskumar, M.; Dobson, R. (University of Canterbury. Electrical and Computer EngineeringUniversity of Canterbury. Biomolecular Interaction Centre, 2015)
    • Land degradation assessment: tools and techniques for measuring sediment load 

      Castro Filho, C.; Cochrane, T.A.; Norton, L.D.; Caviglione, J.H.; Johansson, L.P. (University of Canterbury. Natural Resources Engineering., 2001)
      The assessment of land degradation through the use of tools and techniques is discussed for the measurement of sediment load in regions of great agricultural potential, such as the Paraná river basin. Land degradation for ...
    • Land Use Planning for Natural Hazards: Stewardship for the future 

      Jenkins, Bryan; Davies, Tim (Centre for Advanced Engineering, University of Canterbury, 2009)
      This Commentary brings together the lessons and understandings that have arisen from the significant body of work undertaken by the New Zealand Centre for Advanced Engineering (CAENZ) which has had as its focus the processes ...
    • Land Use Zoning Based on a World Soils and Terrain Digital Database Study to Conserve the Brazil-Nut Forests in Bolivia's Amazonia 

      Cochrane, T.T.; Cochrane, T.A.; Llanque Espinoza, O.E. (University of Canterbury. Civil and Natural Resources Engineering, 2010)
      Botanists have long recognized the western Amazon forests as the area of origin of Brazil-nut (Bertholletia excelsa) and many other tree-crop species. As increasingly large areas of these forests in Bolivia’s Amazonian ...
    • Land-Use Intensification in Grazing Systems: Plant Trait Responses and Feedbacks to Ecosystem Functioning and Resilience 

      Laliberté, Etienne (University of Canterbury. School of Forestry, 2011)
      Land-use change is the single most important global driver of changes in biodiversity. Such changes in biodiversity, in turn, are expected to influence the functioning of ecosystems and their resilience to environmental ...
