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...
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...
Hydrostatic pressure, arching of the soil and electro-osmotic forces have each been suggested as the dominant factor to account for stability of trench excavations in cohesionless soils supported by clay slurries. The Authors suggest that the most important mechanism is the hydrostatic pressure...
Within the framework of limit equilibrium methods of stability analysis, no restriction need be placed at the outset upon the shape of the possible slip surface. In many cases, the critical surface may deviate significantly from a circle or a plane and therefore a method that facilitates the...
Study of Methylammonium Lead Triiodide Intrinsic Stability and Solid-Solution behaviour in Mixed Halide Perovskite SystemsDownload
Over the last nine years, a new class of materials named lead halide perovskite has made a paradigm shift in the field of optoelectronic solution-processable low-cost and high-efficiency devices, with outstanding accomplishments especially in the ever-growing field of renewable solar energy...
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...
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...
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)...
This work examines Rawls’s lectures on Hobbes, which are delivered at a time when Rawls is developing his political liberalism. It especially seeks to question the foundations of Rawls’s interpretation of Hobbes’s Leviathan as presenting a core “political” doctrine based around prudential egoism....
In this paper, we consider spatial predator–prey models with diffusion and prey-taxis. We investigate necessary conditions for pattern formation using a variety of non-linear functional responses, linear and non-linear predator death terms, linear and non-linear prey-taxis sensitivities, and...
