A review of the effects of sedimentation on aquatic biota is presented. The detrimental effects of increased suspended and settled sediments on fish, bottom invertebrates, and primary productivity are documented. It is shown that the upper tolerance level for suspended sediment is between 80-100...

Background The recently constructed river buffalo whole-genome radiation hybrid panel (BBURH5000) has already been used to generate preliminary radiation hybrid (RH) maps for several chromosomes, and buffalo-bovine comparative chromosome maps have been constructed. Here, we present the...
Generation of a restriction minus enteropathogenic Escherichia coli E2348/69 strain that is efficiently transformed with large, low copy plasmidsDownload
Background Many microbes possess restriction-modification systems that protect them from parasitic DNA molecules. Unfortunately, the presence of a restriction-modification system in a given microbe also hampers genetic analysis. Although plasmids can be successfully conjugated into the...
The allocation of resources over time, referred to as resource scheduling, in large-scale construction environments is a challenging problem. Although traditional network scheduling techniques are the most popular scheduling techniques in the construction industry, they are ineffective in...
A fuzzy consensus building framework for early alignment of construction project teams on the extent of their roles and responsibilitiesDownload
This thesis presents a Fuzzy Consensus Building Framework (FCBF), which enables construction project parties to align their teams on their roles and responsibilities early on in their projects. The framework introduces a model that (1) incorporates consensus of construction project teams in...
The fruits of nimble finger: garment construction and the working lives of eighteenth-century English needlewomenDownload
The research objective of this thesis is to re-examine women‟s labour in the eighteenth-century English sewing trades. Several aspects women‟s working lives in the sewing trades are explored in three sections. The first section examines diversity within the sewing trades, employment...
Enhancing space modeling and mobile resources planning in construction operations through a simulation driven visualization frameworkDownload
Simulation modeling is a strong tool that has not been utilized to its expected potential in day to day construction industry activities. One of the reasons contributing to that is the inability of simulation models to depict changes in site space in an intuitive way. This research tries to...
Construction contributes significantly to gas emissions. Diverse efforts have been undertaken to mitigate the effects of these emissions; however, there currently is no effective tool to estimate small-scale (e.g., project-based) emissions in construction. Discrete-event simulation (DES), a new...
Incorporating the effects of complex dynamic interactions in the construction decision making processDownload
Construction projects involve complex interactions among operational components such as labour, materials and equipment and context or organizational components such as worker morale and organizational policies. Interactions among different components of construction projects form byzantine...
A Semantic-Driven Framework for Facilitating Reusability and Interoperability of Construction Simulation ModelingDownload
This research describes a semantic-driven framework to facilitate reusability and interoperability of simulation and modeling of construction processes. An immense amount of knowledge of construction processes and simulation modeling is needed to develop construction simulation models. Knowledge...
