Dynamic insulation in multistorey buildings.
Dynamic insulation permits the movement of air and moisture through the external walls of a building to reduce heat loss and achieve high indoor air quality. The present paper details a pilot study carried out to examine ...
The use of dynamic and diffusive insulation for combined heat recovery and ventilation in buildings.
(Building Environmental Performance Analysis Club (BEPAC), 1997-02)
Environmentally sensitive printmaking: a framework for safe practice.
(Robert Gordon University, 1997-08)
This research is concerned with establishing a rationale which will link safe printmaking practices with artists' individual and sustainable creative practices, by investigating the preconception that printmaking practices ...
The management of aircraft passenger survival in fire.
(Robert Gordon University, 1993-05)
This study examines the main problems associated with passenger survival and evacuation in survivable aircraft fire situations under current regulatory safety requirements and assesses current and alternative strategies ...
The synthesis of artificial neural networks using single string evolutionary techniques.
(The Robert Gordon University, 1999)
The research presented in this thesis is concerned with optimising the structure of Artificial Neural Networks. These techniques are based on computer modelling of biological evolution or foetal development. They are ...
Stone cleaning: a value assessment.
(The Robert Gordon University, 1999-03)
Buildings are an important record of a country's history and cultural heritage, and make an important contribution to modern cultural identity. Any intervention which changes their appearance, or the manner in which they ...
Refinement complements verification and validation
Knowledge based systems are being applied in ever increasing numbers. The development of knowledge acquisition tools has eased the “Knowledge Acquisition Bottleneck”. More recently there has been a demand for mechanisms ...
Knowledge modelling for a generic refinement framework
Refinement tools assist with debugging the knowledge-based system (KBS), thus easing the well-known knowledge acquisition bottleneck, and the more recently recognised maintenance overhead. The existing refinement tools ...
Representing problem-solving for knowledge refinement.
(AAAI (distributed by MIT Press), 1999-09)
Knowledge refinement tools seek to correct faulty knowledge based systems (KBSs) by identifying and repairing potentially faulty rules. The goal of the KrustWorks project is to provide a source of refinement components ...
Refinement in response to validation.
Knowledge-based systems (KBSs) are being applied in ever increasing numbers. In parallel with the development of knowledge acquisition tools is the demand for mechanisms to assure their quality, particularly in safety ...
