An Improved Approach to Production Planning in Oil Sands Mining Through Detailed Analysis and Simulation of Cycle TimesDownload
The objective of this thesis is to develop, implement and verify a theoretical framework based on detailed analyses and simulation of truck and shovel cycle times in open pit mining, placing an emphasis on the hauling component of the cycle. The goal is to improve the generation of accurate and...
The recent success of design-driven companies has generated much inquiry into the question of what is design thinking because many companies have begun to realize how design thinking affects their competitiveness. However, these companies do not understand the so-called design-driven process, and...
Examining Historical Climate with Respect to Future Permafrost and Engineering Design: An Analysis of Common Assumptions and CalculationsDownload
This paper examines changes in climate with respect to permafrost and engineering design in Arctic regions. Current understanding of climate changes, predictive modeling, and climate data were studied. Inconsistencies and differences were noted, discussed, and evaluated using comparisons of the...
Professional identity, commitment and gender in engineering: exploring the (mis)match between dispositions and culturesDownload
This dissertation examines the gendered experience of professional engineers in Alberta, Canada. The study is based on qualitative interview data collected from men and women trained in engineering (n=36) and textual analysis of materials produced by engineering organizations (Association of...
Sit-to-stand (STS) transfer is a prerequisite for many daily tasks. Literature often assumes symmetrical behavior across the body (bilateral symmetry) during healthy STS. However; little research has been conducted to validate this assumption. Motion analysis was utilized to evaluate STS in 10...
