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 ...
The determination of moisture profiles in Pinus radiata timber during kiln drying
(Lincoln University, 1999)
All timber extracted from the forest contains a large amount of water, most of which must be removed before the timber can give satisfactory service in use. The process of drying (seasoning) removes the surplus moisture ...
