  • Modelling the anaestheto-dynamic phase transition of the cerebral cortex

    Steyn-Ross, D. Alistair (The University of Waikato, 2002)
    This thesis examines a stochastic model for the electrical behaviour of the cerebral cortex under the influence of a general anaesthetic agent. The modelling element is the macrocolumn, an organized assembly of ∼10⁵ ...
  • Three-dimensional biomechanical analysis of fast bowling in cricket

    Ferdinands, R. E. D. (The University of Waikato, 2003)
    A three-dimensional (3-D) dynamics model of the human body has been developed to provide a mechanical basis for evaluating fast bowling technique. Thirty-four fast bowlers were selected for study and divided into four ...
  • Acoustic Vector Network Analyser

    Pennington, Kyle (The University of Waikato, 2017)
    This research aims at increasing the accuracy and precision of characterising acoustic materials by adapting well-known techniques developed for the radio-frequency domain to the acoustic domain. Two novel methods are ...
  • Supecapacitor-assisted Temperature Modification Apparatus (SCATMA) and Fast Supercapacitor Charger

    Gurusinghe, Nicoloy (University of Waikato, 2016)
    This thesis presents the design and development of the supercapacitor-assisted "instant" water heating system as well as a new power converter topology to fast charge a supercapacitor bank. Delayed delivery of hot water ...
  • Analysis on Supercapacitor Assisted Low Dropout (SCALDO) Regulators

    Gunawardane, Kalpani Kosala (University of Waikato, 2014)
    State-of-the-art electronic systems employ three fundamental techniques for DC-DC converters: (a) switch-mode power supplies (SMPS); (b) linear power supplies; (c) switched capacitor (charge pump) converters. In practical ...
