  • Ahmad, A; Anderson, T (Solar 2014 Conference & Expo; 2014)
    In this study, nonlinear autoregressive recurrent neural networks with exogenous input (NARX) were used to predict global solar radiation across New Zealand. Data for nine hourly weather variables recorded across New Zealand ...
  • Anderson, T (Solar 2014 Conference & Expo; 2014)
    Glazed flat plate solar collectors offer a simple and cost effective approach to heating water. However, on clear nights solar collectors can transfer a significant amount of heat to the atmosphere by radiation. In areas ...
  • Enayatollahi, R; Anderson, T; Nates, R (Solar 2014 Conference & Expo; 2014)
    In recent times the issue of fresh water shortages and salinity contamination of existing water sources has become a serious problem in a number of locations around the world. Hence, developing an environmentally friendly ...
  • Piratheepan, M; Anderson, T (Solar 2014 Conference & Expo; 2014)
    In this study two possible configurations for a static low concentration ratio façade integrated concentrator were examined using optical ray tracing; the first incorporating a parabolic reflector and the second using a ...
  • Smith, AE; Kalyanji, J; Fraser, G (School of Art and Design, Auckland University of Technology; 2014)
    Rapid advances in seamless knitting technology are opening up significant opportunities in the design, production and application of knitted textile preforms. Introduced in the mid 1990’s, seamless machinery enables shaped, ...
  • Cimerova, H (The Faculty of Business and Law, Auckland University of Technology; 2014)
    We study the effects of job market conditions at the start of future CEOs' careers. We find no evidence of persistent rewards for US public firms' CEOs for starting their career in more successful firms, or for the luck ...
  • Robotham, AJ (New Zealand Wind Energy Association; 2014)
    In the early years of the modern era of the wind turbine, experimental development of vertical axis wind turbines (VAWTs) was underpinned by an incremental improvement of aerodynamic performance prediction methods; the ...
  • Pears, R; Finlay, JA; Connor, AM (Knowledge Systems Institute Graduate School; 2014)
    In this research we use a data stream approach to mining data and construct decision Tree models that predict software build outcomes in terms of software metrics that are derived from source code used in the software ...
  • Britnell, S (New Zealand Nurses Organisation (NZNO); 2009)
    Rapid and effective analgesia is important particularly when intravenous (IV) access is unavailable. Children present unique challenges and achieving effective analgesia and this may often be delayed due to staff skill and ...
  • Hogan, V (New Zealand Tertiary College; 2013)
    In 1997, Glenda MacNaughton wrote the paper ‘Feminist praxis and the gaze in the early childhood curriculum’. In her final paragraph, MacNaughton challenged early childhood educators to revisit the ‘gaze’ after twenty ...
  • Connor, AM; Douglas, SS; Gilmartin, MJ (WIT Press; 1995)
    This paper presents a methodology for the synthesis of path generating mechanisms using Genetic Algorithms GAs). GAs are a novel search and optimisation technique inspired by the principles of natural evolution and survival ...
  • Connor, AM; Shea, K (Springer; 2000)
    This paper presents an investigation of two search techniques, tabu search (TS) and simulated annealing (SA), to assess their relative merits when applied to engineering design optimisation. Design optimisation problems ...
  • Connor, AM; Clarkson, PJ; Shahpar, S; Leonard, PJ (Professional Engineering Publishing; 2000)
    This paper describes an optimisation methodology that has been specifically developed for engineering design problems. The methodology is based on a Tabu search (TS) algorithm that has been shown to find high quality ...
  • Siringoringo, WS; Connor, AM; Clements, N; Alexander, N (Taylor & Francis; 2008)
    Minimum Cost Polygon Overlay (MCPO) is a unique two-dimensional optimization problem that involves the task of covering a polygon shaped area with a series of rectangular shaped panels. This has a number of applications ...
  • Connor, AM; Douglas, SS; Gilmartin, MJ (IEE/IEEE; 1995)
    This paper presents a methodology for the synthesis of multi-degree of freedom mechanisms using genetic algorithms. A Five-Bar mechanism is a 2-DOF system which requires two inputs to fully describe the output motion. In ...
  • Barr, G; Burgess, SG; Connor, AM; Clarkson, PJ (Professional Engineering Publishing; 2000)
    This paper describes a generalised model that embodies the criteria assessed during the tendering process, where if all the pertinent criteria are met, then the risk when submitting the tender is minimised. This provides ...
  • Connor, AM (Computing and Information Technology Research and Education, New Zealand (CITRENZ).; 2007)
    This paper presents a framework for the representation of uncertainty in the estimates for software design projects for use throughout the entire project lifecycle. The framework is flexible in order to accommodate uncertainty ...
  • Connor, AM (ARPN Journal of Systems and Software; 2011)
    This paper describes the extraction of source code metrics from the Jazz repository and the systematic application of data mining techniques to identify the most useful of those metrics for predicting the success or failure ...
  • Connor, AM; Finlay, J (ARPN International Journal of Information and Communication Technology Research; 2011)
    In this paper, we describe the extraction of source code metrics from the Jazz repository and the application of data mining techniques to identify the most useful of those metrics for predicting the success or failure of ...
  • Finlay, J; Pears, R; Connor, AM (Elsevier; 2014)
    Context: Software development projects involve the use of a wide range of tools to produce a software artifact. Software repositories such as source control systems have become a focus for emergent research because they ...
