    • The electrostatic potential in a finite ionic crystal 

      Redlack, Austin (University of Waterloo, 1972-11-01)
      This thesis is written in two parts. In Part One, we develop a new method for evaluating three dimensional lattice summations and apply it to the evaluation of the electrostatic potential of a finite ionic crystal. We then ...

      Wright, John L.; Sullivan, Harry F. (1987-09)
      Previous work has shown that highly infrared transparent plastic films are well suited for use as inner glazings when used in conjunction with a low emissivity coating. Thermal resistance measurements of a set of glazing ...
    • Glazing System U-Value Measurement Using a Guarded Heater Plate Apparatus 

      Wright, John L.; Sullivan, Harry F. (American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers, 1988)
      Precise heat transfer measurements have been carried out during the last 20 years using a guarded heater plate apparatus. This apparatus has been adapted and used over the last several years to perform U-value measurements ...
    • Thermal resistance measurement of glazing system edge-seals and seal materials using a guarded heater plate apparatus 

      Wright, John L.; Sullivan, Harry F. (American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers, 1989)
      In cold climates the increased edge-glass heat transfer at the perimeter of a sealed glazing unit creates a special problem. This is where condensed water and frost most readily occur. One mechanism contributing to edge-glass ...
    • Natural Convection in Sealed Glazing Units: A Review 

      Wright, John L.; Sullivan, Harry F. (American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers, 1989)
      In cold climates the augmented edge-glass heat transfer at the bottom of a glazing system creates a special problem. This is where condensed water and/or frost most readily occur. Two mechanisms determining the rate of ...
    • A Study Of Pane Spacing In Glazing Systems 

      Wright, John L.; Baker, J. A.; Sullivan, Harry F. (Solar Energy Society of Canada, 1989-06)
      The selection of optimum pane spacing for glazing systems has been a topic of ongoing debate in the window manufacturing industry. Arguments are often based on speculation, intuition and results from tests not specifically ...
    • Thermal Resistance Measurement Of Glazing System Edge-seals 

      Wright, John L. (1989-11)
      The existing design of glazing system edge-seals creates increased edge-glass heat transfer at the perimeter of sealed glazing units. This thermal short-circuit caused by edge-seal conduction results in added mechanical ...
    • City Core Neighbourhoods Designed for Sustainability 

      Walker, Judith (University of Waterloo, 1993)
      Humankind's ability to ensure sustainability of the biosphere depends upon the integrated and concerted efforts of all peoples in all places. This study examines the critical need to focus on the achievement of sustainability ...
    • Logic in Pictures: An Examination of Diagrammatic Representations, Graph Theory and Logic 

      Hawley, Derik (University of Waterloo, 1994)
      This thesis explores the various forms of reasoning that are associated with diagrams. It does this by a logical analysis of diagrammatic symbols. The thesis is divided into three sections dealing with different aspects ...
    • A two-dimensional numerical model for natural convection in a vertical, rectangular window cavity 

      Wright, John L.; Sullivan, Harry F. (American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers, 1994-12-31)
      It is common for sealed glazing units to exhibit condensation problems when operated in cold climates. Condensation often forms along the perimeter of the exposed surface of the indoor glazing because of the thermal short ...
    • Occurrent Contractarianism: A Preference-Based Ethical Theory 

      Murray, Malcolm (University of Waterloo, 1995)
      There is a problem within contractarian ethics that I wish to resolve. It concerns individualpreferences. Contractarianism holds that morality, properly conceived, can satisfy individualpreferences and interests better ...
    • An Inquiry into Mental Variation 

      Kujundzic, Nebojsa (University of Waterloo, 1995)
      Although there are both common and specialised senses of the term variation, (the OED lists dozens) there seems to be no well defined use of this term in philosophy. The main task of my thesis is to demonstrate that ...
    • Calculating Window Solar Heat Gain 

      Wright, John L. (American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers, 1995-07)
      Window design has been revolutionized-largely by the introduction of low emissivity (low-e) coatings and substitute fill gases. The large number of design options necessitates the use of computer simulation for development ...
