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 ...
Fast decoupled A.C. and A.C./D.C. loadflows.
(University of Canterbury. Electrical Engineering, 1977)
The development of loadflows derived from the basic Newton-Raphson algorithm is reviewed in this thesis with the fast decoupled method emerging as the best in terms of reliability and computation speed. These, and storage ...
Structure of a rural atmospheric boundary layer near the ground.
(University of Canterbury. Mechanical Engineering, 1978)
This thesis describes instrumentation and software developed to make detailed measurements of wind structure in the lower part of the planetary boundary layer. The instrumentation is based on a 190 mm diameter four bladed ...
Thermodynamics of non electrolyte solutions.
(University of Canterbury. Chemical Engineering, 1973)
Parametrization procedure solution of optimal control problems over spline spaces.
(University of Canterbury. Electrical Engineering, 1978)
In this thesis we report on investigations into the numerical solution of deterministic, continuous-time optimal control problems via parametrization techniques. These methods involve the linear expansion of one or more ...
Transients in antennas
(University of Canterbury. Electrical Engineering, 1971)
Measurement and computational procedures are developed for inferring the frequency responses (both driving point and far field) of an antenna or antenna system from measurements made in the time domain (using nanosecond ...
Dynamically loaded journal bearings
(University of Canterbury. Mechanical Engineering, 1975)
The aim of the work reported in this thesis was to develop a method, suitable for general design work, to determine the stability of a simple rotor mounted in hydrodynamic bearings, The rotor model used was a simple spring ...
The nonlinear seismic response of tall shear wall structures
(University of Canterbury. Civil Engineering, 1977)
New building codes are tending to place considerable value on the use of deterministic dynamic analyses as a means of assessing the ability of engineering structures to withstand severe seismic ground motions. An investigation ...
Some effects of escarpments on the atmospheric boundary-layer.
(University of Canterbury. Mechanical Engineering, 1979)
The project described in this thesis was undertaken in order to contribute to the understanding of the wind flow behaviour over complex terrain by making field and model measurements of the flow over two-dimensional, forward ...
Digital computer analysis of power system networks.
(University of Canterbury. Electrical Engineering, 1972)
