An investigation into the drying of apricots using solar energy : A thesis presented in partial fulfilment of the requirements for the degree of Master of Engineering in Agricultural Engineering at the University of Canterbury [Lincoln College], New Zealand (Lincoln College, University of Canterbury, 1989)In this thesis a drying model APRICOT_DRYING was developed using an empirical equation for drying constant k derived from a set of detailed experiments. The preliminary model verification produced some reasonable results ...
Non-discharging evapotranspiration bed systems : A thesis presented in fulfilment of the requirement for the degree of Master of Engineering in the Department of Natural Resources Engineering in Lincoln University, Canterbury, New Zealand (Lincoln University, 1992)One of the more attractive options for on-site disposal of wastewater is by evaporation. A type of evaporative disposal system was investigated in this study: the evapotranspiration bed (ET bed). Measurements were made ...

Effects of pre-slaughter stress and electrical stimulation intensity on meat tenderness : A thesis submitted in partial fulfilment of the requirements for the degree of Master of Agricultural Science - Meat Science at Lincoln University (Lincoln University, 2000)The experiments in this thesis were part of on-going research on the determinants of meat quality. The two main factors considered in this Thesis were (i) the amount of electrical stimulation applied to beef and lamb ...
Real-time control of the greenhouse environment by computer modelling : A thesis submitted in partial fulfilment of the requirements for the requirements for the degree of Master of Engineering in Lincoln University (Lincoln University, 1991)The energy balance for a greenhouse canopy is complicated, since the transfer of energy cannot be assumed to be taking place between the canopy and a homogeneous air layer. Also the presence of a heating system is an ...
