The complexity of large industrial engineering systems such as chemical plants has continued to increase over the years. As a result, flexible control systems are required to handle variation in the operating conditions. In the classical approach, first the plant model should be linearized at the...
There are several technical challenges in large scale heavy oil processing. In the oil sand industry, for example, the existence of water-in-oil emulsion in diluted bitumen produced from froth treatment presents a great challenge to the industry. In this work, the effect of different bitumen...
Tooth-anchored vs. bone-anchored maxillary expansion: a randomized controlled trial comparing dental and skeletal effectsDownload
Aim: To investigate the differences, if any, between tooth-anchored maxillary expansion (TME) and bone-anchored maxillary expansion (BME) in terms of the produced longitudinal dentoskeletal changes -and the stability of these changes- in adolescents with maxillary constriction. Methods: Sixty...
An Item Analysis of the Instability of Parent Report Scores on the Pediatric Evaluation of Disability InventoryDownload
Purpose: To evaluate item instability of the Pediatric Evaluation of Disability Inventory – Functional Skills Scale completed by parents. Methods: Scoring instability was analyzed between baseline and after 6 months of intervention (T1-T2) on 113 children and between end of intervention and 3...
Atomistic Simulations for Investigating Structural Stability and Selecting Initial Adsorption Orientation of Lysozyme and Apo-α-Lactalbumin at Hydrophobic and Hydrophilic SurfacesDownload
Molecular dynamics (MD) simulations were performed to investigate the structural stability of lysozyme and apo-α-lactalbumin under physiological pH and solution. Upon introduction to the solution, apo-α-lactalbumin showed lower stability than lysozyme with higher backbone root mean square...
Multilateral systems involving haptic information sharing between several users have recently found interesting applications in cooperative haptic teleoperation and haptic-assisted training. It is intuitively understood that some tasks are performed more effectively with two hands or through...
An Electrochemical Impedance Spectroscopic Diagnostic Device for Characterization of Liquid-Liquid Systems and Phase Separation Detection in EmulsionsDownload
Rapid characterization of complex fluids, especially sensing emulsion stability, is crucial for many industrial applications, ranging from pharmaceutical industry to petroleum production. Electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) is a powerful tool for electrical characterization of such...
This research was aimed at developing porous ceramics as well as ceramic-metal composites that can be potentially used in Gen-IV supercritical water reactors (SCWR). The research mainly includes two parts: 1) fabricating and engineering the porous ceramics and porous ceramic-metal composite; 2)...
Developing a simple, general, and isothermal self-replicating system is one of the key requirements for a simplified detection platform for nucleic acid sequences specific to a disease causing microrganism. One of the challenges in achieving nucleic-acid templated isothermal amplification is that...
