The Fire Performance of Timber Floors in Multi-Storey Buildings
(University of Canterbury. Civil and Natural Resources Engineering, 2013)
This research investigated the fire performance of unprotected timber floors, focussing on composite joist floors, composite box floors and timber-concrete composite floors. The study of these floors was conducted using ...
Seismic design of bridge piers
(University of Canterbury. Civil Engineering, 1983)
This thesis is concerned with the seismic design of bridge piers. Particular attention is given to lifeline bridges with reinforced concrete hollow columns. Development of an analytical model to predict the stress-strain ...
Design Recommendations and Methods for Reinforced Concrete Floor Diaphragms Subjected to Seismic Forces
(University of Canterbury. Department of Civil and Natural Resources Engineering, 2011)
The magnitudes of seismic forces which develop in floor diaphragms were investigated in this report to enable the development of a desktop floor diaphragm force design method for use in a structural design office. The ...
Analysis and Development of a Decanter Centrifuge: Power consumption analysis, development of a composite bowl, and feed accelerator analysis
(University of Canterbury. Mechanical Engineering, 2013)
This project was concerned with the analysis and development of a decanter centrifuge. The aim of the project was to increase the understanding of the operation of the machine, and identify and implement methods of improving ...
