This class modifies the standard report class to meet the requirements
of the Australian Defence Force Academy (a college of the University
of New South Wales) as given in the `University College Handbook'.
This class is ultimately derived from the old suthesis style.
The main changes in this class are firstly to use space and a half
interline spacing, except in footnote, figure and table environments
where normal spacing is used. Secondly the chapter and section
headings are changed to be less `shouting' than the standard LaTeX
designs. Thirdly less profligate use was made of vertical spacing.
There is more information in a short document appended to the end of
adfathesis.cls (I have not progressed to using a .dtx).
Since two sided theses are now accepted for theses, I used the
adfathesis class with the following options:
As supplied adfathesis automatically uses the Harvard package and the
supplied `adfathesis.bst' is designed to work with the Harvard
package. If you wish to use a different bst, such as `plain.bst',
this will not be appropriate. There is a class option `normalbib'
which stops the automatic use of the Harvard package, and hence allows
use of either the standard LaTeX bibliography style or an alternative
Changes: \cleardoublepage modified to ensure that blank pages use the
empty pagestyle (from the fancyhdr documentation). Changes to default
penalty values affecting widows/orphans, following suggestions in a
post by Michael Downs on comp.text.tex. The table and table*
environments are defined to automatically swap the settings for
abovecaptionskip and belowcaptionskip, so table captions have the
correct spacing when above the table.
Changes: added an option `honours' that changes the titlepage to one
more appropriate to a Honours report. For this option you should set
\degreetype in the preamble to the appropriate faculty, it defaults to
`Science'. Improved vertical spacing around chapter headings.
The files supplied are as follows:
Changes: modified to use docstrip. No other changes were made.
