The Hybrid tank pilot plant was designed in Process Control Laboratory (PCL) of the University of Alberta at 2009. In this report, we try to construct a model for this process. Using the physical behavior of the plant, it is possible to have the nonlinear first principle dynamic model of that...
Objective: Osteochondral allografting is an effective method to treat large osteochondral defects but difficulties in tissue preservation have significantly limited the application of this technique. Successful cryopreservation of articular cartilage (AC) could improve the clinical availability...
Investigating cryoinjury using simulations and experiments: 1. TF-1 cells during two-step freezing (rapid cooling interrupted with a hold time)Download
There is significant interest in designing a cryopreservation protocol for hematopoietic stem cells (HSC) which does not rely on dimethyl sulfoxide (Me2SO) as a cryoprotectant. Computer simulations that describe cellular osmotic responses during cooling and warming can be used to optimize the...
Poor control of hot strip mill loopers degrades strip width and gauge, and may even lead to mill breakdowns due to instability. In this study, dynamics of the looper-strip system and the control challenges it poses are discussed, and covariance control theory is applied to variance control design...
Background Vitrification is a method of cryopreservation by which cells and tissues can be preserved at low temperatures using cryoprotective agents (CPAs) at high concentrations (typically ⩾6.0 M) to limit the harmful effects of ice crystals that can form during cooling processes. However, at...
Articular cartilage injuries do not heal and large defects result in osteoarthritis with major personal and socioeconomic costs. Osteochondral transplantation is an effective treatment for large joint defects but its use is limited by the inability to store cartilage for long periods of time....
Evaluation of Cold-Wire Addition Effect on Heat Input and Productivity of Tandem Submerged Arc Welding for Low-Carbon Microalloyed SteelsDownload
The addition of a cold wire in conventional tandem submerged arc welding (TSAW), i.e., the CWTSAW process, is proposed to improve the productivity of pipeline manufacturing by increasing welding travel speed and deposition rate, while retaining adequate joint geometry without increasing the...
Hypereutectic Al-18wt.%Si alloy is widely used in automotive industry as a wear resistant alloy for engine components. However, in the last few years, this traditional composition is being considered for processing by different rapid solidification methods. Positive points include its low thermal...
