The effects of spatially distributed rainfall on catchment response
(Lincoln College, University of Canterbury, 1973)
It is commonly assumed in the application of many models of catchment behaviour that catchment rainfall is uniformly distributed over a catchment. This study examines the effects of non-uniform spatially distributed rainfall ...
The permeability of riverbed sediment samples
(Lincoln College. Department of Agricultural Engineering., 1974-11)
The Canterbury Plain stretches roughly 120 km along the Pacific coast and from the eastern foothills of the Southern Alps, at some 300m elevation, it stretches roughly 60km to the coast. A depth of sediment of several ...
Time and motion studies and economic evaluation of conventional bale handling technique in New Zealand
(Lincoln College, University of Canterbury, 1974)
Hay is the most important field crop in terms of land acreage in almost all the dairy farming countries of the world. In the United States, hay is the crop ranked second after wheat, both in monetary value and in acreage ...
An aeromechanically governed wind turbine: a design study
(Lincoln College, University of Canterbury, 1979)
The theoretical model is developed for predicting the aerodynamic performance characteristics of a variable-pitch multi-blade wind turbine. The aerodynamic characteristics are utilized in the design of a self-regulating ...
