Welcome to ROS
The ROS Theses Repository contains full-text copies of all Heriot-Watt University PhD theses awarded from 2009 onwards.
It is mandatory for any student who completes a doctoral thesis to submit a digital copy for inclusion in ROS. In addition, the metadata-only records of older theses (previously held in the University Library catalogue) are included in ROS, with full text digital copies being sought on a voluntary basis. If you have a digital copy of your thesis and you wish to store it in ROS, please contact us.

(Heriot-Watt University Engineering and Physical Sciences, 2010-05)This study focuses on the synthesis of various Schiff-base calixarenes that may be used as supramolecular building blocks. Two different routes to Schiff-base calixarenes have been examined. One explores the reaction ...
Pore network modelling of gas flow processes in porous media with special application to CO2 sequestration (Heriot-Watt University Petroleum Engineering, 2015-02)This thesis describes the development of a pore network model and its application to the analysis of the underlying physical mechanisms governing gas flow behaviour in porous media. The main focus of the study is CO2 and ...
(Heriot-Watt University Mathematical and Computer Sciences, 2016-05)Conventional parallel programming is complex and error prone. To improve programmer productivity, we need to raise the level of abstraction with a higher-level programming model that hides many parallel coordination ...
