Design and performance evaluation of vertical shafts: rational shaft design method and verification of design methodDownload
Ground deformations around axisymmetric shafts cannot be determined with the design approaches currently available, which are mostly based on plasticity methods. The convergence–confinement method (usually applied to tunnels), with consideration of gravitational effects and the three-dimensional...
Data from carcasses of 210 cattle (119 bulls and 91 steers) from 4 breed types, serially slaughtered from = 200-008kg kg liveweight were used to test the hypothesis of similar gender dimorphism among breeds in relation to carcass bone growth and distribution. Relative to total bone weight, breed...
An examination of parent-child dyadic interaction and the impact of a parent-training program designed to support the language development of toddlers diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder (ASD)Download
Parents can effectively facilitate positive child behaviour change (Kaiser & Hancock, 2003). Their inclusion as interventionists is an essential component of autism intervention (NRC, 2001) and represents a natural step toward consistent early intervention. However, what constitutes effective...
Heterogeneity of surfaces is often included in mathematical treatments of colloid transport and deposition as an afterthought, if at all. Most previous models of colloid transport and deposition have employed idealizations and simplifications such as assuming smooth collector surfaces with...
In this thesis, measurement and analysis of colloidal forces between an atomic force microscope (AFM) probe and a topographically patterned substrate are reported. The energy between the patterned substrate and a smooth flat plate was characterized mathematically using Surface Element Integration...
Interactions between Amyloid Precursor Protein and Prion Protein Impact Cell Adhesion and Apoptosis in the Developing ZebrafishDownload
We report here that knockdown of either amyloid precursor protein (APP) or prion protein (PrP) in the zebrafish produces an overt dose-dependent phenotype characterized by systemic morphological defects and CNS cell death. We report findings that the zebrafish PrP-1 gene genetically interacts...
Proteins, which participate in virtually every process within cells, implement many of their functions through interactions with various ligands. Although a substantial effort in characterization and prediction of protein-ligand interactions was observed in the past two decades, these subjects...
Interactions Between Host Trees, Bacteria, and Fungi: Impacts on Mountain Pine Beetle (Dendroctonus ponderosae) ReproductionDownload
Warming winter trends due to climate change have allowed for a range expansion of the mountain pine beetle, and the beetle now threatens Canada’s economically and ecologically important jack pine forests. The beetle’s success in jack pine trees will depend upon successful colonization of the...
Background Vitrification is a method of cryopreservation by which cells and tissues can be preserved at low temperatures using cryoprotective agents (CPAs) at high concentrations (typically ⩾6.0 M) to limit the harmful effects of ice crystals that can form during cooling processes. However, at...
