#### An experimental study of squat shear walls

(University of Canterbury. Engineering, 1971)

Shear walls with an aspect (H/D) ratio of 1 or less are considered to exhibit non-ductile behaviour due to the possibility of a premature shear failure. As well as this, little is known about the behaviour of web reinforcement ...

#### On variant means and applications to ergodic theory and harmonic analysis

(University of Canterbury. Mathematics, 1971)

This thesis is concerned with the existence and properties of invariant means on certain Banach spaces and their applications to ergodic theory and harmonic analysis. The principal results obtained are as follows.
Let G ...

#### A computer system for a cadastral mapping application

(University of Canterbury. Computer Science, 1979)

In 1973, the New Zealand Government instituted a metric measurement system and the New Zealand Department of Lands and Survey (NZLS) implemented a new mapping grid and projection system that permits the accurate representation ...

#### Filamentary oxide formation on iron

(University of Canterbury. Mechanical Engineering, 1975)

The oxidation of iron in air or oxygen at temperatures between 300°C and 800°C is accompanied by the growth of filamentary crystals from the outer oxide surface. Below 470°C the predominant crystal habit is pointed platelets ...

#### YACAS : a batch computer animation system

(University of Canterbury. Computer Science, 1978)

This thesis describes the design and implementation of a computer animation system called YACAS. YACAS is a batch animation system consisting of two parts. One part is a set of subroutines written in Burroughs Extended ...

#### NATEP : an interactive computer aid to teaching numerical analysis

(University of Canterbury. Computer Science, 1978)

NATEP is an interactive computer system with a graphical display. It uses a simple dialogue written in 'STAF' Author Language for the user-system communication. A wide selection of numerical algorithms have been implemented ...

#### The analysis of travelling waves on power system transmission lines.

(University of Canterbury. Electrical Engineering, 1974)

This thesis is concerned with the mathematical representation of, and the analysis of travelling waves on, power system transmission lines.
The transmission lines are described mathematically by the Telegrapher's equations. ...

#### Multi algebras & related structures

(University of Canterbury. Mathematics, 1979)

This thesis investigates the properties of two algebraic structures - multialgebras and partially ordered universal algebras. Multialgebras generalize the concept of a universal algebra to multivalued operations. Unlike ...

#### Ultrasonic determination of the internal structure of solids

(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 ...

#### Thermal stresses in concrete structures.

(University of Canterbury, 1978)

This thesis considers the thermal response of mass concrete
structures under heat-of-hydration effects, and of cracked reinforced
and partially prestressed concrete bri.dges under diurnal insolation
and ambient thermal ...
