The development and application of statistical sampling regime to map out hydrocarbons in sediments. (2005)
Thesis
AHMED, A.S. 2005. The development and application of statistical sampling regime to map out hydrocarbons in sediments. Robert Gordon University, PhD thesis.

This thesis investigates and develops a stratified random sampling design for sediments in an offshore oil field environment. The sampling area was partitioned equally into sixteen zones. Stratification was based on the near-field and far-field areas... Read More about The development and application of statistical sampling regime to map out hydrocarbons in sediments..

Using orthogonal arrays to train artificial neural networks. (2005)
Thesis
VISWANATHAN, A. 2005. Using orthogonal arrays to train artificial neural networks. Robert Gordon University, MPhil thesis.

The thesis outlines the use of Orthogonal Arrays for the training of Artificial Neural Networks. Such arrays are popularly used in system optimisation and are known as Taguchi Methods. The chief advantage of the method is that the network can learn q... Read More about Using orthogonal arrays to train artificial neural networks..

Empowering women's self-care: a participatory approach to prevent HIV/AIDS for women and children in Northeast Thailand. (2005)
Thesis
DONKAEWBUA, S. 2005. Empowering women's self-care: a participatory approach to prevent HIV/AIDS for women and children in Northeast Thailand. Robert Gordon University, PhD thesis.

Across Thailand there has been a general reduction in the incidence rate of HIV infection in all but one special population group: married women and their offspring whilst the incidence rate is relatively low (1.2%) it has remained steady for a numbe...

Grounding the theory of virtue. (2005)
Thesis
CROCKETT, C. 2005. Grounding the theory of virtue. Robert Gordon University, PhD thesis.

Business plays a powerful role in contemporary society, but this increasing role has been accompanied by a growing concern regarding the social and moral impact of enterprising endeavour. One of the greatest challenges of our time is the need to chan... Read More about Grounding the theory of virtue..

Alternative strategies for security labelling/encoding of paper and plastic products. (2005)
Thesis
OFFICER, S.J. 2005. Alternative strategies for security labelling/encoding of paper and plastic products. Robert Gordon University, PhD thesis.

A literature and patent review of current optical security techniques has been carried out and identified a need in the market for an improved optical security label to rival molecular fluorescent dyes. The label proposed was a rare earth (RE) doped... Read More about Alternative strategies for security labelling/encoding of paper and plastic products..
