Simulating the stress-strain properties of woollen yarns
(Lincoln University, 1997)
This thesis describes a new model of the behaviour of staple fibre yarns under longitudinal extension. Within this new model, several of the most important yarn structural features are described by arbitrary distribution ...
Assessment of growing seasons characteristics in the Dry zone of Sri Lanka based on stochastic simulation of rainfall and soil water status
(Lincoln University, 1998)
Rainfall and crop water demand are two major agro-climatic variables that determine the crop production in the Dry zone of Sri Lanka. The lack of long series of historical data of these variables often hinders the proper ...
Development of an integrated framework for environmental decision making
(Lincoln University, 2001)
This thesis describes a new framework developed to assist decision makers in making multi related and multi-dimensional environmental decision making. This involves a set of feasible alternative management systems (landuses) ...
Techniques for optimization of a dairy farm simulation model
(Lincoln University, 2003)
Dairy farms are complicated biological and managerial systems with many control variables. New Zealand's dairy farm research organization, Dexcel Ltd, has developed a computer simulation model, the Dexcel WFM (Whole Farm ...
