Experimental Assessment of Charge Flow in Electrospinning
(University of Canterbury. Mechanical Engineering, 2013)
Electrospinning is a method of using high voltage electric fields to transform polymer solutions into nano-scale fibres. The field has seen significant work on processing different polymers and their resulting fibres but ...
Simulation of Vehicle-Pedestrian Interaction
(University of Canterbury. Mechanical Engineering, 2006)
The literature on vehicle crash reconstruction provides a number of empirical or classical theoretical models for the distance pedestrians are thrown in impacts with various types of vehicles and impact speeds. The aim of ...
Modelling, Simulation and Control of Gas Turbines Using Artificial Neural Networks
(University of Canterbury. Mechanical Engineering, 2014)
This thesis investigates novel methodologies for modelling, simulation and control of gas turbines using ANNs. In the field of modelling and simulation, two different types of gas turbines are modelled and simulated using ...
Modelling the glucose-insulin regulatory system for glycaemic control in neonatal intensive care.
(University of Canterbury. Mechanical Engineering, 2009)
Hyperglycaemia is a common condition in the very low birth weight infant and is linked to mortality and increased risks of morbidities such as sepsis and retinopathy of prematurity. The preterm neonate is in a state of ...
Underwater Acoustic Modelling for Synthetic Aperture Sonar
(University of Canterbury. Electrical and Computer Engineering, 2006)
Underwater acoustic modelling is an important aspect of Synthetic Aperture Sonar (SAS) system design and algorithm development. Sea-trials are an expensive and time-consuming exercise and simulations provide an efficient ...
