    • Bus Bunching and Variability of Travel Speed and Dwell TimeA Bus Service Study of ‘The Orbiter’ 

      Ryan, Grace Elizabeth (University of Canterbury. Civil and Natural Resources Engineering, 2012)
      The context of this study is the increasing need for public transport as issues over high private vehicle usage are becoming increasingly obvious. Public transport services need to compete with private transport to improve ...
    • Energy reliance, urban form and the associated risk to urban activities 

      Saunders, M.; Krumdieck, S.; Dantas, A. (University of Canterbury. University Hall.University of Canterbury. Mechanical Engineering.University of Canterbury. Civil Engineering., 2006)
      Current transport energy supply is finite; it will peak and decline. Replacement renewable energy resources will not match current consumption levels. Transport systems will be subject to supply shortages and increasing ...
    • Hydrodynamics and chemistry of silica scale formation in hydrogeothermal systems. 

      Kokhanenko, Pavlo (University of Canterbury. Mechanical Egineering, 2015)
      The extraction of geothermal heat can cause precipitation of the minerals dissolved in geothermal fluid. Their deposition on the walls of wells and above-ground plant and in pores near reinjection wells, also known as ...
    • Influences on Transport Policy Makers and Their Attitudes Towards Peak Oil 

      Wardell, Rebecca (University of Canterbury. Civil and Natural Resources Engineering, 2010)
      Transport plays a vital role in society, and energy for transport relies on fossil fuels. However, the future of the transport system is uncertain due to a concept relating to the diminishing supply of fossil fuels, termed ...
    • Probabilistic Risk Analysis in Transport Project Economic Evaluation 

      Lieswyn, John (University of Canterbury. Civil and Natural Resources Engineering, 2012)
      Transport infrastructure investment decision making is typically based on a range of inputs such as social, environmental and economic factors. The benefit cost ratio (BCR), a measure of economic efficiency (“value for ...
