A Laboratory Study of the Stability and Flow of Nanoparticle Suspensions through Porous Media using Magnetic TechniquesDownload
A magnetic susceptibility technique is applied to find the effects of a wide range of parameters on the stability and transport of the nanoparticle suspensions. First section of the study is related to stability of nanoparticle suspensions with particular emphasis on determining an optimum...
A METHODOLOGY FOR CODE-COMPLIANT DESIGN BASED ON LIFECYCLE ANALYSIS FOR HOUSING IN COLD CLIMATESDownload
Well-designed walls and windows play a major role in reducing heating energy usage in the home in cold climates. There are also different design options to improve home energy efficiency which have different cost impacts. This study presents a methodology to determine code-compliant...
A Machine Learning Approach to Predict Production Time in Industrialized Building ConstructionDownload
Industrialized building construction is an effective approach for improving the performance and management of construction projects by offering higher quality products, minimized environmental impacts, and improved schedule predictability. The industrialized building construction approach...
The municipal drainage system is a key component of every modern city’s infrastructure. However, as the drainage system ages, its pipes gradually deteriorate at rates that vary based on the conditions of utilization (i.e., intrinsic conditions) and other extrinsic factors such as the presence of...
One of the main sources of uncertainty in vein type deposits is found in the calculation of the tonnage. The boundary limits often applied to a vein type deposit are calculated from sparse data using deterministic methods that offer no measure of uncertainty. The most common method used to...
Although much academic research has been performed in the study of construction process simulation, this research has not seen mainstream application in the construction industry. Many factors play a deterrent role in the adoption of simulation by construction end users, mainly the time, cost and...
This research involves the development of a forecasting model that will aid project managers in estimating the owner’s project management staff requirements for a construction project utilizing historical data. This will support project managers in the decisions of hiring new resources or working...
A Multi-Objective Optimization Workflow for Steam-Alternating-Solvent Heavy Oil Recovery Process DesignDownload
Coimbra Paniagua, Luis Eduardo
The steam alternating solvent (SAS) process involves multiple cycles of steam and solvent (e.g. propane) being injected into a horizontal well pair to produce the heavy oil. Companies are interested in these solvent-based methods, as they entail a smaller environmental footprint with reduced...
There is a fundamental need to improve grit removal techniques for municipal wastewater treatment plants (WWTP) to meet newer effluent standards and to deal with the rapid growth of urbanization and industrialization. In response to this need, secondary and tertiary treatment processes are being...
A New Material Characterization Approach for Evaluating the Deformational Capacity of Onshore PipelinesDownload
The buckling instability phenomenon in shell structures is inherently influenced by a variety of parameters which may exhibit direct nonlinear relationships with the resultant stress and consequent deformation in the structure, as well as complex interrelationships, under various loading...
