Thermal modelling and optimisation of building-integrated photo-voltaic thermal systems.
(University of Canterbury. Electrical & Computer Engineering, 2015)
This Masters project has involved detailed thermal analysis of a unique renewable energies building. A TRNSYS model of this building has been developed and validated by real measurements and has shown to be capable of ...
Linkage Synthesis and Optimisation Techniques with Skiboard Product Design Case Study
(University of Canterbury. Mechanical Engineering, 2010)
This thesis explores the design development and experimental testing of a planar linkage for the Skiboard, a novel snowsports equipment device. The Skiboard, similar to a skateboard in appearance and style of use, combines ...
Feasibility of an Electric Jetpack
(University of Canterbury. Electrical and Computer Engineering, 2010)
The Martin Aircraft Company Limited has been developing the Martin Jetpack for over 25 years. The recent worldwide launch of the Jetpack has enabled the company to step up its research and development programme. The goal ...
Improving Visualisation of Large Multi-Variate Datasets: New Hardware-Based Compression Algorithms and Rendering Techniques
(University of Canterbury. Computer Science and Software Engineering, 2012)
Spectral computed tomography (CT) is a novel medical imaging technique that involves simultaneously counting photons at several energy levels of the x-ray spectrum to obtain a single multi-variate dataset. Visualisation ...
