Combination of horizontal drilling and hydraulic fracturing has led to improved oil recovery from unconventional resources over the past decade. In spite of the huge amount of oil in-place, the primary oil recovery factor is very low (3-10 % of initial oil in-place) in unconventional resources....
Understanding and Improving Input for Quantitative Risk Analysis in the Construction IndustryDownload
Risk analysis in the construction industry involves identifying risk events that could potentially affect a project and its delivery, quantifying those risks, and developing mitigation strategies to enhance project success. This thesis aims to improve the process of risk analysis through the...
Vehicle painting booths are among the major sources of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) emissions in the auto manufacturing sector. A challenge with controlling VOCs by adsorption onto activated carbon (AC) is the occurrence of strongly, or even permanently, adsorbed species. Irreversible...
Understanding absenteeism in construction: a pilot study on industrial construction in AlbertaDownload
Absenteeism is a factor that adversely influences construction productivity. Construction employers in Alberta have been trying to address high levels of absenteeism on their projects but they have not been successful so far. This study aims at a better understanding of absenteeism on...
Airport leakage is a phenomenon that occurs when air passengers choose to travel longer surface distances to take advantage of better air services at an airport further away (i.e., the substitute airport), instead of, as expected, using their local airport. The overall objective of this research...

Analysis of uncertainty in ore reserves impacts investment decisions, mine planning and sampling. Uncertainty is evaluated by geostatistical simulation and is affected by the amount of data and the modeling parameters. Incomplete uncertainty is given because the parameter uncertainty is ignored....
Masonry, as a conventional construction material, is widely used due to its durability, strength, hygrothermal performance, and aesthetics. However, the behaviour of masonry structures is not fully comprehended, especially in the face of uncertainty. This lack of understating on the behaviour...
This thesis explores the development and preliminary operation of a new test method for roller and roller path arrangements on ultra-class mining shovels. The lack of existing lab-scale test methods discourage significant change, and restrict the development of the roller and roller path to minor...
CO2 flooding is a widely used enhanced oil recovery (EOR) method (Jarrell et al., 2002). Dimethyl ether (DME) is potentially a good solvent and has good compatibility with both CO2 and hydrocarbons (Catchpole et al., 2009; Ratnakar et al., 2016a). Due to the good solubility of DME in both CO2 and...
