This predictive study is based on the results of the first year of data collection respecting the meteorological factors that may influence the dispersion of atmospheric emissions in and through the air over the Athabasca Tar Sands region executed by MEP under contract to Shell Canada Ltd.,...
Time domain reflectometry has been used for fluid level measurement and characterization since the 1960's, however, there is little research present in the literature to improve the measurements by using alternate probe designs. Numerical analysis of a dielectric loaded circular waveguide probe...
Appropriate scale-up provides a critical link between fine-scale heterogeneity descriptions and coarse-scale models used for transport modeling, which is essential for planning and management of subsurface reservoirs. A significant challenge in subsurface flow and transport modeling is to develop...
A study was conducted to evaluate the properties and processes influencing the rate and magnitude of volume decrease and strength gain for oil sand fine tailings resulting from a change in bitumen extraction process (caustic versus non-caustic) and the effect of adding a coagulant to caustic fine...
The interaction between the turbulent wake, created by a tailings pond dike and the low level emissions at the Syncrude Tar Sands Plant has been investigated using wind tunnel model simulation. At the large Reynolds numbers experienced by model and full-scale dike the flow remains attached to the...
The plume rise, spread and supporting meterological and source data given in Slawson et al (1978) were further analyzed in order to provide a more suitable data set upon which a site-tuned plume dispersion model could be developed. This dispersion model was considered to consist of a buoyant...
Electrospinning of polystyrene (PS) as a ubiquitous polymer attracted tremendous attention. Though, different reinforcement techniques are commonly considered for the electrospun PS fibers because of their fragile structures. High mechanical properties of Cellulose nanocrystals (CNC) allow these...
The impact of mixing on diluted bitumen de-watering is studied in two stages using a fractional factorial design of experiments. The first stage evaluates the relative effects of bulk demulsifier dosage, local maximum energy dissipation, and mixing time. The second stage of experiments evaluates...
