Design of Connections for Post Tensioned Rocking Timber Frames
(University of Canterbury. Civil Engineering, 2015)
Pres-Lam technology aims to allow timber to stand alongside concrete and steel as a material of choice for multi-storey frame structures. It combines Laminated Veneer Lumber (LVL) structural members post-tensioning and ...
Wearable Tools for Affective Remote Collaboration
(University of Canterbury. Human Interface Technology Lab, NZ, 2015)
Affective computing is the study and development of systems that can recognize human emotions and feelings. Emotions are always an interesting topic of research and these days researchers are trying to develop systems ...
Modelling a novel orbital IC engine to aid further design.
(University of Canterbury. Mechanical Engineering Department, 2015)
Stochastic forest growth simulation: incorporating growth prediction uncertainty with wind and fire damage into carbon sequestration estimates and discounted cash flow analysis.
(University of Canterbury. School of Forestry, 2015)
Uncertainty in forest productivity prediction and the variable reduction from wind and fire damage makes predictions of forest Net Present Values (NPVs) and carbon sequestration uncertain, creating a distribution of possible ...
A comparative study of using Augmented Reality interfaces for vehicle navigation
(University of Canterbury. Human Interface Technology Lab, 2015)
Augmented Reality (AR) is technology that provides a view of real world environment with which has augmented or virtual components. In this thesis I explore how AR can be used for in-vehicle applications. AR systems can ...
An experimental study of squat shear walls
(University of Canterbury. Engineering, 1971)
Shear walls with an aspect (H/D) ratio of 1 or less are considered to exhibit non-ductile behaviour due to the possibility of a premature shear failure. As well as this, little is known about the behaviour of web reinforcement ...
A dynamic random channel reservation for MAC protocols in multimedia wireless networks.
(University of Canterbury. Computer Science and Software Engineering, 2001)
Medium Access Control (MAC) plays a vital role in wireless networks. With the increasing popularity of multimedia services, MAC protocols of wireless networks are required to satisfy a variety of Quality of Service (QoS) ...
A computer system for a cadastral mapping application
(University of Canterbury. Computer Science, 1979)
In 1973, the New Zealand Government instituted a metric measurement system and the New Zealand Department of Lands and Survey (NZLS) implemented a new mapping grid and projection system that permits the accurate representation ...
The Software Metrician's Workbench : a system for supporting software metrics research
(University of Canterbury. Computer Science, 1991)
The desire to produce software of better quality has lead to the requirement for better management of the software development process. Software development has been likened to an engineering discipline, in that it uses ...
Fire Spread on Exterior Walls
(University of Canterbury. Civil Engineering, 2000)
This report describes methods of predicting heat flux exposure to external walls due to the impingement of flame issuing through a window opening. A heat transfer model was set up for the purpose of predicting the geometry ...
