Heterogeneous materials are omnipresent in several critical engineering applications such as polymer electrolyte fuel cells (PEFCs), coal bio-conversion process, geological storage of CO2 and membrane water filtration. These applications rely on physical processes such as transport (e.g., mass,...
Quantitative analysis of single particle tracking experiments: applying ecological methods in cellular biologyDownload
Single-particle tracking (SPT) is a method used to study the diffusion of various molecules within the cell. SPT involves tagging proteins with optical labels and observing their individual two-dimensional trajectories with a microscope. The analysis of this data provides important information...
Structural brain changes occur in a complex manner throughout life, and understanding healthy brain development is crucial for the study of brain abnormalities in various conditions. Diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) is an advanced magnetic resonance imaging technique that provides information about...
To understand the water cycle on Mars, details of mass and energy transfer between the surface and the atmosphere are of importance. A complete model, involving transient variations of the water in gaseous and solid phases in the atmosphere and the regolith, is developed and solved numerically...
Athabasca Bitumen and other heavy hydrocarbon resources are high-mean-molar-mass and structured organic materials with complex phase behaviors at the nano- and micro- meter length scales. Diffusion of light hydrocarbons, and non-hydrocarbons in these resources is of significant interest as new...
Improvement of thermal heavy-oil recovery in sandstone and carbonate reservoirs using hydrocarbon solventsDownload
This thesis introduces a new approach for heavy-oil recovery from fractured reservoirs: Steam-Over-Solvent Injection in Fractured Reservoirs (SOS-FR). The SOS-FR technique is a new technology proposed as an alternative method to the sole injection of steam or solvent and consists of three...
Resonant drift echoes in electron phase space density produced by dayside Pc5 waves following a geomagnetic stormDownload
The interaction between relativistic, equatorially mirroring electrons and Pc5 Ultra Low Frequency (ULF) waves in the magnetosphere is investigated using a numerical MagnetoHydroDynamic (MHD) model for waves and a test-kinetic model for electron phase space density (PSD). The temporal and spatial...
The demand for accurate bitumen-pentane mass transfer data was the main motivation behind this research. Difficulties such as complex phase behavior, high viscosity and opacity of the hydrocarbon invariably lead to failure of conventional techniques to measure mass transfer coefficients...
Most of the fundamental elements of ecology, ranging from individual behavior to species abundance, diversity, and population dynamics, exhibit spatial variation. Partial differential equation models provide a means of melding organism movement with population processes and have been used...
