The development of a vibrating wire viscometer and a microwave cavity resonator for the measurement of viscosity, dew points, density, and liquid volume fraction at high temperature and pressure. Kandil, Mohamed E. (University of Canterbury. Chemical and Process Engineering, 2005)This thesis describes the development and testing of two apparatuses; a vibrating wire viscometer to measure the viscosity of fluids over a wide range of temperature and pressure; and a microwave cavity resonator to measure ...
Improved pressure contour analysis for estimating cardiac stroke volume using pulse wave velocity measurement Kamoi S; Pretty C; Balmer J; Davidson S; Pironet A; Desaive T; Shaw, Geoff; Chase, Geoff (2017)Background: Pressure contour analysis is commonly used to estimate cardiac performance for patients suffering from cardiovascular dysfunction in the intensive care unit. However, the existing techniques for continuous ...
11-interval PFG pulse sequence for improved measurement of fast velocities of fluids with high diffusivity in systems with short T2* Boyce, C.M.; Rice, N.P.; Sederman, A.J.; Dennis, J.S.; Holland, D.J. (University of Canterbury. Chemical and Process Engineering, 2016)Magnetic resonance (MR) was used to measure SF6 gas velocities in beds filled with particles of 1.1 mm and 0.5 mm in diameter. Four pulse sequences were tested: a traditional spin echo pulse sequence, the 9-interval and ...
