As conventional SiO2 gate dielectric thickness shrank to a few atomic layers, gate dielectric tunneling increased dramatically. The primary way to reduce tunneling is to increase film thickness, which decreases capacitance. High-dielectric-constant (high-κ) oxides were introduced to maintain...
The current commercial aqueous extraction processes produce large amounts of tailings and is the major obstacle to recovery of bitumen from the oil sands. Solvent-based bitumen extraction is an alternative process, due to its high bitumen recovery and dry solids/tailings (gangue). During...
An investigation into the Development of Ceramic Sorbents for High Temperature Air Separation for OxyFiringDownload
Oxyfuel combustion as one of the alternatives to post-combustion carbon capture technologies requires an economically viable oxygen supply system. Cryogenic air separation, the main currently available technology, consumes above 30% of the energy produced as it involves separation of nitrogen...
Optimization techniques, in conjunction with a finite element thermal model, are used in this thesis to optimize the temperature profile (i.e. cooling rate and coiling temperature) of a steel skelp during laminar cooling. Optimization parameters include skelp velocity, laminar cooling bank...
This thesis is concerned with subspace identification and its applications for controller performance assessment and process modeling from closed-loop data. A joint input-output closed-loop subspace identification method is developed which provides consistent estimation of the subspace matrices...
State inference and identification of discrete-time, non-linear, stochastic state-space models (SSMs) are considered here. A novel sequential Monte Carlo (SMC) based Bayesian method for simultaneous on-line state inference and identification of non-linear SSMs is proposed. Extension of the method...
The formation of bainite is the most studied and the most debated phase transformation in steels, with research spanning almost a century. With two theories of transformation, the transformation mechanism of bainite is still a disputed subject among physical metallurgists. Upper bainite and lower...
In this work the Computational Fluid Dynamics modeling of the Automotive Catalytic Converter is comprehensively performed, including the study of the Flow Field distribution and the Temperature distribution under cold, non-reacting flow for six different monolith properties. A sensitivity study...
Optimal experiment design has been considered as an effective tool to improve model reliability and accuracy in nonlinear system identification in the past few decades. This thesis is concerned with the following challenges which have not been previously addressed: poor initial guess problem of...
