    • A Taxonomy of Network and Computer Attack Methodologies 

      Hansman, Simon (University of Canterbury, 2003)
      Since the invention of computers and networks, people have found various ways to attack them. Attacks over the years have ranged from using a sledge hammer on a computer, to advanced distributed denial of service attacks. ...
    • TCP Behavior in Quality of Service Networks 

      Athuraliya, Sanjeewa Aruna (University of Canterbury. Electrical and Computer Engineering, 2007)
      Best effort networks fail to deliver the level of service emerging Internet applications demand. As a result many networks are being transformed to Quality of Service (QoS) networks, of which most are Differentiated Services ...
    • TCP performance enhancement over wireless networks 

      Jayananthan, Aiyathurai (University of Canterbury. Electrical and Computer Engineering, 2007)
      Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) is the dominant transport protocol in the Internet and supports many of the most popular Internet applications, such as the World Wide Web (WWW), file transfer and e-mail. TCP congestion ...
    • Teaching strength of materials at distance : Instructional design for a computer-based solution 

      Padmaperuma, Gamini A. K. (University of Canterbury. Mechanical Engineering, 2005)
      The concern of the academic staff at the Open University of Sri Lanka (OUSL) regarding the continued poor student performance in a core course in engineering (Strength of Materials) has prompted the researcher to undertake ...
    • Techniques for automatic assembly 

      Wohlert-Jensen, C. H. H. (University of Canterbury. Mechanical Engineering, 1978)
      The objective of the research work carried out was the development of techniques useful in automated assembly. In particular, methods were sought which would allow the extension of simple robot capabilities from the "pick ...
    • Techniques, hardware and software for robotic assembly 

      Pham, Duc Truong (University of Canterbury. Mechanical Engineering, 1979)
      This thesis presents the analysis, design and development of aids for robotic assembly. The purpose of these aids is to extend the scope of low-cost industrial robots to the terminal aligning and insertion phases in the ...
    • Technological applications of deterministic chaos. 

      Murch, Alan Rodney (University of Canterbury. Electrical and Electronic Engineering, 1989)
      Engineering and technological applications and consequences of deterministic chaos are considered. Four technological areas are investigated: electrical noise, electrical signal sources, data encryption and packet switching. ...
    • Tectonic Geomorphology and Seismic Hazard of the Mt Fyffe Section of the Hope Fault 

      Coulter, Roseanne Frances (University of Canterbury. Geological Sciences, 2007)
      The northeast-trending transpressive Hope fault is a major tectonic element of the active Pacific-Australian plate boundary zone through New Zealand. This study presents geomorphic and paleoseismic field data from the Mt ...
    • Teleoperation for Steep Country Forestry Harvesting in New Zealand 

      Milne, Bartholomew James Estall (University of Canterbury, 2015)
      New Zealand’s forests are commonly planted on steep slopes and include large trees. The research in this thesis contributes to the long term objective of developing a teleoperated mechanised harvester capable of working ...
    • The Temporal Organisation of Documents and Versions: A User-Centred Investigation 

      JasonSmith, Michael Patrick (University of Canterbury. Computer Science and Software Engineering, 2006)
      In this thesis a study of computing systems that use time as the primary method of organising electronic documents, and versions of electronic documents, is presented. Such systems should be useful and usable because they ...
