A NEW APPROACH TO MODEL FRICTION LOSSES IN THE WATER-ASSISTED PIPELINE TRANSPORTATION OF HEAVY OIL AND BITUMENDownload
Water lubricated pipe flow technology is an economic alternative for the long distance transportation of viscous oils like heavy oil and bitumen. The lubricated flow regime involves an oil-rich core surrounded by a turbulent water annulus. Energy consumption associated with this type of pipeline...
Abstract: Introduction: Partial bladder outlet obstruction (pBOO) is a ubiquitous problem that results in renal damage. We hypothesize that change in the bladder progresses over time. Methods: Fischer rats underwent surgical pBOO for 2, 4, 8, or 13 weeks and were compared to shams. Urodynamic...
Hydraulic transport is commonly employed in the mining industry to transport crushed ore to a processing facility. Dense slurry flows inflict heavy wear on pipes, leading to significant process downtime and loss of revenue. Several factors have been identified as key contributors to pipe wear. ...
Characterization of hypertrophic scar formation in nude and knockout mice deficient in T, B and natural killer cellsDownload
Introduction: Hypertrophic scar (HSc) is a fibroproliferative disorder lacking a relevant animal model. Our objective is to characterize proliferative scars in human xenografts generated after grafting human skin onto mice deficient in T, B and natural killer cells. Methods: Nude, T-cell...
Spotting in the context of wildland fire refers to the creation of new fires, downwind from an existing fire front, where the new fires result due to the launch, and subsequent fuel bed ignition upon landing, of burning plant ma- terial released from the main front. We will present a new...
Near neutral pH Stress Corrosion Cracking (NNpHSCC) on underground oil and gas pipelines is an issue facing industry today. Determining where NNpHSCC is likely to occur and grow is an important aspect to developing an Integrity Management Program. This work focused on developing a predictive...
Development and Applications of an Emissions Micro-Simulation Tool for Transportation Infrastructure DesignDownload
Transportation emissions constitute a significant portion of overall emissions inventories, and contribute to air quality health concerns. Reductions in transportation emissions can be achieved through efficient design of infrastructure, effective policy and regulation, and informed planning...
This thesis documents the research undertaken to develop and assess modeling and monitoring tools to improve the water quality management in the Athabasca River, Alberta. The Upper Athabasca River (UAR) has experienced dissolved oxygen (DO) sags, which may affect the aquatic ecosystem. A water...
Pile-to-pile mechanical connections are used when the depth of the soil layers with sufficient bearing strength exceeds the standard pile length and extensions are needed to reach the deep stable soil. Mechanical connectors permit a safe transmission of forces while meeting strength and...
