Digital Image Elasto-Tomography: Combinatorial and Hybrid Optimization Algorithms for Shape-Based Elastic Property Reconstruction
(University of Canterbury. Mechanical Engineering., 2008)
Results from the application of three nonlinear stiffness reconstruction algorithms to two simple cylindrical geometries are presented in this paper. Finite-element simulated harmonic motion data with added noise were ...
Design with uncertain qualitative variables under imperfect knowledge
(University of Canterbury. Mechanical Engineering, 2004)
To support early design and design under risk, it is necessary to have methodologies to process the various forms of uncertainties. Three independent dimensions of uncertainty are identified in the paper as certainty of ...
Urban form and long-term fuel supply decline: A method to investigate the peak oil risks to essential activities
(University of Canterbury. Civil and Natural Resources EngineeringUniversity of Canterbury. Mechanical Engineering, 2010)
The issue of a peak in world oil supply has become a mainstream concern over the past several years. The petroleum geology models of post-peak oil production indicate supply declines from 1.5% to 6% per year. Travel ...
