The accumulation of huge amount of oil sands process water (OSPW) in tailing ponds has shown a serious threat to the local public health for their potential to contaminate surface and groundwater. Naphthenic acids (NAs) are considered to be one of the most important toxic compounds present in...
Elastic modeling is essential for mechanical behavior of biopolymer spherical shells [such as ultrasound contrast agents (UCAs), spherical viruses and enzymes] characterized by high structural heterogeneity and geometric imperfection. The effects of structural heterogeneity and geometric...
The Interaction of Path Integration Cues and Landmarks in Positioning Estimations During Human Spatial Navigation in Small- and Large-scale EnvironmentDownload
People use landmarks and the path integration cues to return to the origin of the route (i.e., home). This homing behavior is believed to be better when people can access both cues than when they can only access either cue, because two separate homing estimations are combined to reduce homing...
Drilling-induced fractures in borehole cores have distinct morphologies (e.g., petal, petal-centreline, saddle, and disk) and are produced under pure tensional stress, although most in-situ stresses are compressive. 3D numerical models show that tensile stress concentrations occur near the bottom...
