  • Characterisation of porcelain enamel coatings

    Henderson, Matthew Neil (The University of Waikato, 2002)
    This thesis focuses on the structural and compositional characterisation and corrosion performance of porcelain enamel coatings commonly used on metal substrates for protective and decorative purposes. These characteristics ...
  • Computational and empirical thermal modelling of a proposed SOFC stack housing design

    Fenton, Basil (The University of Waikato, 2004)
    Solid oxide fuel cells (SOFC) generate electricity cleanly, efficiently and quietly. There has been much effort in commercialising planar and large tubular SOFCs in the past two decades. Some research has involved modelling ...
  • Fabrication and characterization of micro-tubular solid oxide fuel cells

    Du, Yanhai (The University of Waikato, 2004)
    Solid oxide fuel cells (SOFC) are an energy efficient, low pollution technology for generating power and have the potential to revolutionize energy generation. Tubular and planar concepts are the most common SOFC systems. ...
  • Preparation and characterisation of double doped-CeO₂ systems

    Torrens, Rob (The University of Waikato, 2002)
    Potential Solid Oxide Fuel Cell (SOFC) electrolyte materials of the composition Ce₀.₈Gd₀.₂₋ₓMₓO₂₋δ (M = Pr or Sm, x = 0.005 - 0.05) were prepared by two wet-chemical methods: oxalic acid co-precipitation and a variant of ...
  • Synthesis and properties of some doped lithium transition-metal phosphates

    Butt, Garrett Phillip (The University of Waikato, 2000)
    Four structurally related materials; LiNiPO₄, LiCoPO₄, Li₃Fe₂(PO₄)₃ and Li₃V₂(PO₄)₃, were synthesised, characterised and evaluated as potential cathode materials for lithium secondary batteries. The materials were ...
