    • Saltwater Modelling of Fire Gas Flow through a Horizontal Ceiling Opening 

      Le Quesne, Marcus Andrew (University of Canterbury. Civil and Natural Resources Engineering, 2010)
      When fires occur in domestic or commercial buildings it is the smoke from the fire that leads to far more injury and death than the heat produced from the flames. Understanding the movement of smoke within the fire compartment ...
    • Sampling strategies and reconstruction techniques for magnetic resonance imaging 

      Blakeley, Nicholas D. (University of Canterbury. Electrical and Computer Engineering, 2003)
      In magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), samples of the object's spectrum are measured in the spatial frequency domain (k-space). For a number of reasons there is a desire to reduce the time taken to gather measurements. The ...

      Hosking, Rosalie (University of Canterbury, 2016)
      Between the 17th and 19th centuries, mathematically orientated votive tablets appeared in Shinto shrines and Buddhist temples all over Japan. Known as sangaku, they contained problems of a largely geometrical nature. The ...
    • Scalable and adaptable security modelling and analysis. 

      Hong, Jin Bum (University of Canterbury. Computer Science and Software Engineering, 2015)
      Modern networked systems are complex in such a way that assessing the security of them is a difficult task. Security models are widely used to analyse the security of these systems, which are capable of evaluating the ...

      Kelton, William James (University of Canterbury. Chemical and Process Engineering, 2008)
      A scalable method for the synthesis of polyethylene terephthalamide microcapsules grafted with polyacrylic acid to enable pH responsiveness has been developed. Microcapsules were produced by interfacial polymerisation of ...
    • A Scalable Middleware-Based Active Network Architecture for Next Generation Communications 

      Cook, Carl; Krishnan, Paddy; Pawlikowski, Krzysztof (University of Canterbury, 2001)
      In conventional data communication networks, the basic network components such as workstations and routers are passive, in which routing decisions are made solely on the basis of the packet header information. In contrast, ...
    • Scaled-down modelling and microprocessor facilities for the simulation and assessment on HVDC convertor disturbances. 

      Hisha, Horoshi (University of Canterbury. Electrical Engineering, 1983)
      Aimed at the eventual implementation of direct digital control and protection in a.c./d.c. power systems, this thesis describes the design of a thyristor convertor model and an interrupt-driven multiple microprocessor ...
    • Scaling up the production of protein nanofibres 

      Wong, Kang Yuon (University of Canterbury. Chemical and Process Engineering, 2011)
      Protein nanofibres, commonly known as amyloid fibrils, are emerging as potential biological nanomaterials in a number of applications. Protein nanofibres are a highly ordered insoluble form of protein, which results when ...
    • Scattering and ACTH regulation. 

      Smith, Vaughan Allan (University of Canterbury. Electrical Engineering, 1992)
      The work reported in this thesis is concerned with two completely separate topics - scattering and adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) regulation. The accuracies of two approximate scattering formulations, the Born ...
    • Schottky Contact Formation to Bulk Zinc Oxide 

      Allen, Martin Ward (University of Canterbury. Electrical and Computer Engineering, 2008)
      Zinc oxide is a II-VI semiconductor with considerable potential for optoelectronic and power-electronic applications in the UV spectrum, due to its wide direct band gap (3.35 eV at 300 K), high exciton binding energy (60 ...
    • Seamless Handoff Between 802.11b and CDMA2000 Networks 

      Molloy, Kieran (University of Canterbury, 2003)
      With the deployment of 3G networks by telecommunication companies, and the gradual implementation of wireless networks, seamless handoff between the networks becomes an increasingly desirable facility. Seamless handoff ...
