The importance of anchor ice transport of sediment on a river is significantly understudied. This study addresses the lack of data related to anchor ice release and rafting. A large sample set of anchor ice was collected in the field over the 2015-2016 and 2016-2017 winter seasons to compute a...
This thesis concentrates on the construction of directional tensor product complex tight framelets. It uses a complex tight framelet filter bank in one dimension and the tensor product of the one-dimensional filter bank to obtain high-dimensional filter bank. It has a number of advantages over...
It is well known that most information of an image is contained in its edges. Therefore capturing edges in an image is of fundamental importance in image processing. Tensor product real-valued wavelets only capture edges along the horizontal and vertical direc- tions. Hence they are only...
In this paper, estimation of the applied force on a planar catheter is considered. An image processing approach has been chosen as the most suitable tool. For this purpose, we create a comprehensive database of catheters with different shapes and operating forces. Using image processing...
Development of a Novel Electro-thermal Anti-icing System for Fiber-reinforced Polymer Composite AirfoilsDownload
Given the trend towards expanded use of polymeric composites for wind turbine blades and aircrafts wing, icing of polymer composite airfoils is a challenge; this thesis is addressing this issue from a conceptual perspective. For the first time, the concept of embedded thermal elements as an...
A CAPTCHA is an automatically generated test designed to distinguish between humans and computer programs; specifically, they are designed to be easy for humans but difficult for computer programs to pass in order to prevent the abuse of resources by automated bots. They are commonly seen...
Density Doubling Image Equalization Macro for ImageJ
In order to adapt images of patterns templated using block copolymers, acquired using a scanning electron microscope, for publication, an algorithm was developed to process the images, enhancing the darker features in a consistent and easily reproducible manner. This was done using ImageJ, a free...
Dynamic Behavior of an Ordinary Chondrite: the Effects of Microstructure on Strength, Failure and FragmentationDownload
Knowledge of the relationships between microstructure, stress-state and failure mechanisms is important in the development and validation of numerical models simulating large-scale impact events. In this study, we investigate the effects of microstructural constituent phases and defects on the...
Municipal drainage systems have a key role in public health and are considered one of the main components of every modern city's infrastructure. However, as the drainage system ages, its pipes gradually deteriorate at rates that vary based on the different conditions of utilization. To prevent...
