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.

(Engineering and Physical Sciences, 2017-03)Chapter one provides a brief exposition on the history and importance of boron and carboranes and introduces 1,1ʹ-bis(o-carborane). It also provides literature examples of 1,1ʹ-bis(o-carborane) chelates, 1,1ʹ-bis(o- ...
(Engineering and Physical Sciences, 2018-05)Macrophages derive from multipotent precursor cells and play a critical role in the immune response. They can change states in response to environmental factors and much of these have been elucidated from a molecular ...
(Heriot-Watt University Energy, Geoscience, Infrastructure and Society, 2019-03)Simulation of many enhanced oil recovery (EOR) methods requires accurate modelling and determination of relative permeability (Kr) data under different saturation histories. Relative permeability is a function of several ...
(Mathematical and Computer Sciences, 2019-02)Large-scale optimization, here referring mainly to problems with many design parameters remains a serious challenge for optimization algorithms. When the problem at hand does not succumb to analytical treatment (an ...
New achievements and configurations of helical resonator filters for space applications - theory and design (Engineering and Physical Sciences, 2018-05)The satellite for communication uses frequencies from UHF band (300MHz to 3 GHz) up to Ka band (40GHz). The dimensions of the components in the satellite transponder, usually decrease with the frequency increment. For the ...
