Computer aids for the design of large scale integrated circuits. (1983)
Thesis
SWAN, G. B. 1983. Computer aids for the design of large scale integrated circuits. Council for National Academic Awards, PhD thesis.

The work described in this thesis is concerned with the development of CADIC (Computer Aided Design of Integrated Circuits), a suite of computer programs which allows the user to design integrated circuit layouts at the geometric level. Initially, a... Read More

Adaptive control of communication networks using learning automata. (1982)
Thesis
CHRYSTALL, M.S. 1982. Adaptive control of communication networks using learning automata. Council for National Academic Rewards (CNAA), PhD thesis.

This research investigates communications network routing procedures, based on distributed learning automata concepts for circuit and packet switched networks. For this application, the learning automaton is shown to be an ideal adaptive control mech... Read More

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... Read More

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... Read More

Changes in body composition after thermal injury in the rat. (1979)
Journal Article
AL SHAMMA, G.A., GOLL. C.C., BAIRD, T.B., BROOM, J., NICHOLAS, G.A. and RICHARDS, J.R. 1979. Changes in body composition after thermal injury in the rat. British journal of nutrition [online], 42(3), pages 367-375. Available at: https://doi.org/10.1079/BJN19790126

1. The effects on body composition, measured by direct techniques, of a controlled 25% body-surfacearea thermal injury have been studied in two groups of forty male Wistar rats. 2. The extent of weight loss in the animals was directly related to thei... Read More

Biochemical adaptations in early starvation: observations on sex difference. (1978)
Journal Article
BROOM, J., FLECK, A., DAVIDSON, D.F., ROSENBURG, C. and DURNIN, J.V.G.A. 1978. Biochemical adaptations in early starvation: observations on sex difference. Proceedings of the Nutrition Society [online], 37(3), page 92A. Available from: https://doi.org/10.1079/PNS19780048

Twenty-two students, eleven male and eleven female, volunteered to fast for 3 d. Twenty-four hour urine collections were obtained over the period of study, and total nitrogen, urea, and 3-hydroxybutyrate (3-OH-butyrate) were determined in each.

Protein synthesis in the rat liver after fracture of the femur. (1974)
Journal Article
KHAN, S.N., TILSTONE, W.J., FLECK, A. and BROOM, I. 1974. Protein synthesis in the rat liver after fracture of the femur. Proceedings of the Nutrition Society [online], 33(3), pages 93A-94A. Available from: https://doi.org/10.1079/PNS19740058

Moderate to severe trauma is accompanied by two characteristic responses in plasma protein concentration, namely an increase in levels of acute phase reactants and a fall in albumin (Cuthbertson & Tompsett, 1935; Oweb, 1967).

Properties of a high-current discharge in alkali-metal-seeded rare gases. (1969)
Thesis
ELLINGTON, H.I. 1969. Properties of a high-current discharge in alkali-metal-seeded rare gases. Robert Gordon's Institute of Technology, PhD thesis.

This thesis is an account of a detailed investigation of the properties of a recently-discovered gas discharge - a discharge that operates at a few volts or tens of volts, and which carries a current of the order of amps through a mixture consisting... Read More

Generating easy and hard problems using the proximate optimality principle.
Dataset
MCCALL, J.A.W., CHRISTIE, L.A. and BROWNLEE, A.E.I. 2015. Generating easy and hard problems using the proximate optimality principle. [Dataset]

These data were gathered to investigate the hypothesis that coherent functions will be easy and anti-coherent functions will be hard for a hillclimber. We generated 10 coherent functions for each length on bit-strings of length 6-100 and the same num... Read More
