An investigation of eddy diffusivities of momentum and heat in circular pipes. (1981)
Thesis
CHEONG-KI, C. 1981. An investigation of eddy diffusivities of momentum and heat in circular pipes. Council for National Academic Awards, PhD thesis.

The theoretical analysis of the present work was based on a thermodynamic approach, using the method of inference. An analysis was made to find the macroscopic turbulence transport properties from the description of microscopic behaviour of entities...

A computer-aided architectural design system for the analysis, synthesis and appraisal of domestic activity spaces and house plans. (1981)
Thesis
LANGSKOG, K. 1981. A computer-aided architectural design system for the analysis, synthesis and appraisal of domestic activity spaces and house plans. Robert Gordon's Institute of Technology, PhD thesis. Hosted on OpenAIR [online]. Available from: https://doi.org/10.48526/rgu-wt-1694942

Investigations on functional aspects of domestic activity spaces and of other related design theories have led to the formulation of novel design models for the analysis, synthesis and evaluation processes of house design. A theoretical model of the... Read More about A computer-aided architectural design system for the analysis, synthesis and appraisal of domestic activity spaces and house plans..

Influence of environmental conditions and architectural form on the design and thermal performance of the flat-plate solar collector system. (1981)
Thesis
ROBERTSON, P. 1981. Influence of environmental conditions and architectural form on the design and thermal performance of the flat-plate solar collector system. Robert Gordon's Institute of Technology, PhD thesis.

Solar heating systems, by the nature of their design and inherent thermal mass, are sensitive to the changes in the prevailing climatic conditions. A computer program has been developed to predict and display the dynamic performance of solar water he...
