  • Psychotextiles and their interaction with the human brain 

    Chen, Meixuan (Heriot-Watt University Textiles and Design, 2016-11)
    This work crosses the boundaries between design and technology, and it focuses on pattern design, its relationship with neuroscience and how new SMART products can be developed from this interaction. What we see in our ...
  • Experimental and numerical studies of thermoregulating textiles incorporated with phase change materials 

    Iqbal, Kashif (Heriot-Watt University Textiles and Design, 2016-05)
    Phase change materials (PCMs) provide thermal management solution to textiles for the protection of wearer from extreme weather conditions. PCMs are the substances which can store or release a large amount of energy in the ...
  • Model checking web applications 

    Alzahrani, Mohammed Yahya (Heriot-Watt University Mathematical and Computer Sciences, 2015-12)
    The modelling of web-based applications can assist in capturing and understanding their behaviour. The development of such applications requires the use of sound methodologies to ensure that the intended and actual ...
  • Service-oriented agent architecture for autonomous maritime vehicles 

    Insaurralde, Carlos Ceferino (Heriot-Watt University Engineering and Physical Sciences, 2013-12)
    Advanced ocean systems are increasing their capabilities and the degree of autonomy more and more in order to perform more sophisticated maritime missions. Remotely operated vehicles are no longer cost-effective since they ...
  • An investigation into achieving visual narration using photochromic dyes on a textile substrate 

    Banks, Carol (Heriot-Watt University Textiles and Design, 2014-01)
    Photochromic dyes have the unique property of being colourless until exposed to ultraviolet (UV) light. Their application within design has thus far been basic, predominantly developing the medium as it is exposed to natural ...
