  • 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 ...
  • Geodesic geometry of some static axisymmetric vacuum spacetimes

    Harder, David M. (The University of Waikato, 2003)
    Solutions of Laplace's equation in terms of bispherical and toroidal coordinates are used to derive new exact exterior (vacuum), general relativistic fields, of static axially symmetric spacetimes. For each new metric ...
  • Topics in Energy Release and Particle Acceleration in the Heliosphere

    Armstrong, Craig Keith (University of Waikato, 2014)
    This thesis investigates both the release of energy in solar flares, and the acceleration and transport of particles in various astrophysical situations. While numerical simulations are central to this thesis, these are ...
