  • Aerodynamics of two-dimensional sail wings

    Bundock, Michael Stephen (The University of Waikato, 1980)
    The purpose of this work is to obtain the exact solution for the profile and characteristics of a two-dimensional sail, immersed in an inviscid incompressible fluid. An experimental investigation was also performed and ...
  • Coronal magnetic energy release by current sheet reconnection

    Heerikhuisen, J. (The University of Waikato, 2001)
    In this thesis we investigate the rapid release of energy in the solar corona, with a particular view to understanding the solar flare in which magnetic reconnection is thought to play a key role. A review of existing ...
  • Current sheet formation in uniformly twisted magnetic flux tubes

    Ali, Farhad (The University of Waikato, 2001)
    A viable mechanism for coronal heating is conversion of magnetic field energy into heat through magnetic reconnection in current sheets. Two processes capable of generating current sheets in the solar corona are studied ...
  • Electromagnetic stirring using a travelling magnetic field

    Saad, Mohd. Noor Bin (The University of Waikato, 2004)
    Electromagnetic stirring of liquid metal is widely used during continuous casting in iron and steel industries to improve the quality of the products. In this thesis we aim to develop a theory for traveling linear stirrers ...
  • Reduction of water and bed levels in the lower Waikato River

    Wo, You Gu (University of Waikato, 1994)
    The major aims of this thesis are to determine the historical qualitative and quantitative reduction in water and bed levels of the lower Waikato River, to identify probable factors influencing the reduction, and to predict ...
