    • Ultra-wideband (UWB) communication using carrierless amplitude phase modulation. 

      Malik, Tahir (University of Canterbury, 2016)
      Ultra-Wideband (UWB) technology can be used for high data rate, very low power communication. Pulse Position Modulated (PPM) based time domain schemes for UWB communication have been investigated in this thesis. When ...
    • Ultrasonic determination of the internal structure of solids 

      Maginness, M. G. (University of Canterbury. Electrical Engineering, 1970)
      This project commenced from the concept that some of the wide variety of signal processing techniques developed in radar and sonar systems should be capable of useful application in the field of materials inspection. The ...
    • Uncertainty Analysis of Zone Fire Models 

      Walker, A M (University of Canterbury. Civil Engineering, 1997)
      Zone fire models are used by practising engineers every day in New Zealand, yet the models have limitations, and the uncertainty of these models has not been well documented. Comparisons with experimental data are simply ...
    • Uncertainty in flow and sediment projections due to future climate scenarios for the 3S Rivers in the Mekong Basin 

      Shrestha, B.; Cochrane, T.A.; Caruso, B.S.; Arias, M.E.; Piman, T. (University of Canterbury. Civil and Natural Resources Engineering, 2016)
      Reliable projections of discharge and sediment are essential for future water and sediment management plans under climate change, but these are subject to numerous uncertainties. This study assessed the uncertainty in ...
    • Uncertainty in the economic evaluation of transportation projects 

      Tai, Tuck Leong (University of Canterbury. Civil Engineering, 1987)
      This thesis describes the methods and results of an investigation into the nature and impacts of uncertainty on the current economic evaluation practices in New Zealand. The thesis consists of four parts. Part I introduces ...
    • Under-Ventilated Compartment Fires - A Precursor to Smoke Explosions 

      Parkes, Anthony Richard (University of Canterbury. Civil Engineering, 1996)
      Fourteen experiments were conducted at the University of Canterbury using a 1.0m x 1.0m x 1.5m compartment with liquid pool fires. They were conducted to experimentally study, in reduced scale, the conditions that exist ...
    • Undergraduate difficulties: algebraic skills and mathematical comprehension. 

      Boustead, Therese Mary (University of Canterbury. Mathematics and Statistics, 1999)
      Many first year university students struggle with mathematics. Observations in senior mathematics classes in four New Zealand secondary schools highlighted potential undergraduate problems, especially with algebraic and ...
    • Undergraduate enrolments in power engineering 

      Duke, R.; Round, S. (University of Canterbury. Electrical and Computer Engineering., 2001)
      The Bachelor of Engineering degree structure at the University of Canterbury was changed significantly in 1990 to give students a much wider choice of specialisations in years 3 and 4. Students tend to select the subjects ...
