The research was conducted to investigate effect of hydrodynamic conditioning on the flocculation of the oil sands fine tailings. The main focus was the effect of shearing on the structure of flocculated aggregates and the extent of reflocculation occurring upon cessation of shearing. An...
Recently, Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) have been used in many monitoring applications, e.g., environment monitoring. A WSN consists of a set of nodes, each having one or more sensors to measure a phenomena. Nodes are connected to each other using wireless radio communications. Typically, there...
The mining of oil sands ore and extraction of bitumen produces aqueous slurries containing bitumen, coarse sand and fine clays. The performance of key process units is highly dependent on the rheology of “carrier fluid”, which is comprised of the fine solids and water. Although viscosity is...
