Abstract: Dissipation of excess pore pressures during piezocone testing in firm to stiff overconsolidated fine-grained soils provides data curves that cannot be interpreted using published theoretical solutions. Available solutions are based on either cavity-expansion or strain-path methods,...
The extraction of bitumen (heavy oil) from the oil sands is predominantly achieved through a water-based technology. This involves a slurrying process, typically called conditioning, which is categorized into three equally important steps: bitumen-sand liberation, bitumen coalescence, and...
Many municipalities in Canada and all over the world use chloramination for drinking water secondary disinfection to avoid DBPs formation from conventional chlorination. However, the long-lasting monochloramine (NH2Cl) disinfectant can pose a significant risk to aquatic life through its...
Resonance is at the heart of sensing and characterization tools in all fields of science. A nanoresonator has achieved the remarkable resolution of a proton mass. The coupling of a micromechanical oscillator to an optical field in a high finesse cavity has allowed sensitive probing even in the...
