The growing interest in the industrialization of construction process; promotes opportunities for automation. Automation brings improvement in quality and productivity, while reducing worker’s exposure to hazardous work environments. The integration of robotics in interior finishing works, such...
Active bottlenecks limit traffic flow on freeway corridors. To relieve bottleneck severity, ramp metering (RM), variable speed limit (VSL) and their integration are often implemented to control the on-ramp and mainline input flow. Currently, freeway operation has become proactive based on...
Current bitumen extraction technologies used in surface mined oil sands in Alberta, Canada require large volumes of fresh water, which in turn generate large volumes of fluid fine tailings (FFT). Managing these tailings is a major challenge for oil sands operators. Non-aqueous extraction (NAE) is...
Experiments investigating momentum transfer, turbulence and air-water gas transfer in a wind wave tankDownload
A series of laboratory experiments were conducted at three fetches of 4.8, 8.8 and 12.4 m, and at six wind speeds ranging from 4.1 to 9.6 m/s at each fetch in a wind-wave-current research facility. In addition, five surfactant-influenced experiments were conducted at concentrations ranging from...
PILOT-SCALE INTEGRATED FIXED FILM ACTIVATED SLUDGE SYSTEMS FOR WASTEWATER BIOLOGICAL NUTRIENT REMOVALDownload
ABSTRACT PILOT-SCALE INTEGRATED FIXED FILM ACTIVATED SLUDGE SYSTEMS FOR WASTEWATER BIOLOGICAL NUTRIENT REMOVAL by Kingsley Nze The University of Alberta, Winter 2018 Under the supervision of Dr. Yang Liu In this study, the performance of two identical pilot-scale biological nutrient removal...
Geostatistics aims at applying statistics to quantitatively describe geological deposits and assess the uncertainty due to incomplete sampling. Strong assumptions are required regarding the location-independence of statistical parameters to construct numerical models with geostatistical tools....
Many geological deposits contain nonlinear anisotropic features such as veins, channels, folds or local changes in orientation; numerical property modeling must account for these features to be reliable and predictive. This work incorporates locally varying anisotropy into inverse distance...
Analytical and Experimental Study of Gas Flow Regime in the Matrix and Fractures of Shale Gas ReservoirsDownload
One of the most significant differences between conventional and unconventional gas resources is the ultra-low matrix permeability of unconventional gas reservoirs such as shale, coal and tight gas. Matrix permeability of shales is an elusive but important parameter in characterizing shale gas...
This thesis aims mainly at investigating the potential oxidizing abilities and possible applications of the UV/Chlorine process as an Advanced Oxidation Process (AOP). Several organic compounds were used and added into the samples as challenging radical scavengers to investigate the possibilities...
