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.

  • Interrogating liquid surfaces via reactive atom scattering 

    Serrate, Maria Tesa (Engineering and Physical Sciences Heriot-Watt University, 2016-04)
    An investigation of the structure of various liquid surfaces has been conducted using Reactive Atom Scattering coupled to laser-induced fluorescence spectroscopy (RAS-LIF). In this technique, reactive collisions of gas-phase ...
  • Investigation of the use of meshfree methods for haptic thermal management of design and simulation of MEMS 

    Munier, John-Baptiste (Engineering and Physical Sciences Heriot-Watt University, 2017-03)
    This thesis presents a novel approach of using haptic sensing technology combined with virtual environment (VE) for the thermal management of Micro-Electro-Mechanical-Systems (MEMS) design. The goal is to reduce the ...
  • “Co-crystallisation of active pharmaceutical ingredients” 

    Srirambhatla, Vijay Kumar (Engineering and Physical Sciences Heriot-Watt University, 2014-12)
    In the thesis presented here, novel co-crystals of two active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs), i.e. paracetamol and furosemide are presented. Co-crystals are molecular complexes in which two or more components are held ...
  • Modelling discrepancy in Bayesian calibration of reservoir models 

    Nobakht, Behzad Nezhad Karim (Heriot-Watt University Energy, Geoscience, Infrastructure and Society, 2018-12)
    Simulation models of physical systems such as oil field reservoirs are subject to numerous uncertainties such as observation errors and inaccurate initial and boundary conditions. However, after accounting for these ...
  • Dynamic modelling and real-time monitoring of intelligent wells 

    Nikjoo, Ehsan (Heriot-Watt University Energy, Geoscience, Infrastructure and Society, 2018-10)
    Intelligent Wells (I-Wells) are the wells equipped with in-well Flow Control Devices (FCDs) and sensors. I-Wells offer a wide range of flow control and monitoring options, with the latter often being subject to how well ...
