  • Slip Rate on the Wellington Fault, New Zealand, during the Late Quaternary: Evidence for Variable Slip during the Holocene 

    Ninis, Dee1, dee.ninis@vuw.ac.nz, Timothy A. 1. Little, Russ J. 2. Van Dissen, Nicola J. 2. Litchfield, et al. 2013. "Slip Rate on the Wellington Fault, New Zealand, during the Late Quaternary: Evidence for Variable Slip during the Holocene." Bulletin of the Seismological Society of America 103(1): 559-579.
    We investigate fault-offset fluvial terraces at two sites along the Hutt River, near Wellington, New Zealand, to determine horizontal slip rates for the southern part of the Wellington fault for the last ~100 ka. Using ...
  • Brittle deformation adjacent to the Awatere strike-slip fault in New Zealand: faulting patterns, scaling relationships, and displacement partitioning 

    Little, Timothy A.. 1995. "Brittle deformation adjacent to the Awatere strike-slip fault in New Zealand: faulting patterns, scaling relationships, and displacement partitioning." Geological Society of America Bulletin 107: 1255-1271.
    A description of the pattern, distribution, and sequential development of tensile fractures and faults along the northeast coast of South Island, New Zealand. The active Awatere fault in this region is less than 4 million ...
  • Efficiency based Evaluation on Inverter topologies with soft switching Techniques 

    Zhang, Mizhi, and T. A. Little. 2006. "Efficiency based Evaluation on Inverter topologies with soft switching Techniques." 2006 Canadian Conference on Electrical and Computer Engineering, Vols 1-5: 919-923.
    As demand for green power and off-grid applications increase, distributed generators are becoming more commonplace. The range of power and voltage output rating are greatly extended with careful use of semiconductor devices ...
  • Evaluation on basic resonant structures and voltage clamping techniques 

    Zhang, Mizhi, and T. A. Little. 2006. "Evaluation on basic resonant structures and voltage clamping techniques." Iecon 2006 - 32nd Annual Conference on Ieee Industrial Electronics, Vols 1-11: 1008-1013.
    As the increasing demand of soft switching techniques in order to further increase the efficiency at high frequency operation. Resonant structure is becoming more and more important in reducing the switching loss. Due to ...
  • Weaving innovation into the fabric of engineering education 

    Leach, E., and TA Little. 2005. "Weaving innovation into the fabric of engineering education." International Journal of Engineering Education 21(2): 200-204.
    Generating wealth requires new ideas that find a path to market. In order to produce new ideas it is important to equip university graduates with creative thinking tools and an innovative mindset. This article chronicles ...

  • Using contests to teach design to EE juniors 

    Gregson, PH, and TA Little. 1999. "Using contests to teach design to EE juniors." Ieee Transactions on Education 42(3): 229-232.
    Most electrical engineering programs have a capstone design course, but lack a suitable design experience in the junior year. This makes the capstone course very difficult for students and compromises its pedagogical aims. ...
  • Designing Contests for Teaching Electrical Engineering Design 

    Gregson, Peter H., and Timothy A. Little. 1998. "Designing Contests for Teaching Electrical Engineering Design." International Journal of Engineering Education 14(5): 367-374.
    This paper discusses important issues connected with mounting a junior-year design contest including safety, students' knowledge, students' judgment, creativity, incorporation of course material, design difficulty, strategic ...
