The term industrialized construction was adopted by the offsite construction industry where the building components are prefabricated in factories and then transported to the construction site for on-site assembly. With this shift towards industrialized construction, new challenges were...
Analysis of genotype-environment interactions from a genome-wide survey of quantitative trait loci in a barley populationDownload
The presence of genotype-environment interactions (GE) leads to the imperfect genetic correlation between the measurements of the same trait in different environments, thereby limiting the ability of plant breeders to identify superior breeding lines or best cultivars across the environments. We...
Analysis of linear and nonlinear genotype × environment interaction
The usual analysis of genotype × environment interaction (G × E) is based on the linear regression of genotypic performance on environmental changes (e.g., classic stability analysis). This linear model may often lead to lumping together of the non-linear responses to the whole range of...
Parabolic partial differential equations (PDEs) are used as models of transport-reaction phenomena in a variety of different industrial chemical and materials engineering processes, and can yield precise descriptions of process variables with complex temporal and spatially dependent system...
Many geological deposits contain nonlinear anisotropic features such as veins, channels, folds or local changes in orientation; numerical property modeling must account for these features to be reliable and predictive. This work incorporates locally varying anisotropy into inverse distance...
Implementation and Evaluation of Spatiotemporal Prediction Algorithms and Prediction of Spatially Distributed Greenhouse Gas InventoriesDownload
Growing environmental concerns require monitoring and modelling of greenhouse gases. These modelling efforts require processing of massive datasets in a timely fashion. This, in turn, can lead to feasibility problems when estimating values of missing data points. This thesis examines and compares...
SSHRC Awarded IG 2018: Consumption (purchases) is considered one of the best metrics of individual and household well-being. Economists typically assume households elect to smooth their consumption, so as to insure against shocks such as disability or unemployment. The current state-of-the-art...
Experimentally-validated nonlinear flight control of a helicopter UAV has two necessary conditions: an estimate of the vehicle’s states from noisy multirate output measurements, and a nonlinear dynamics model with minimum complexity, physically controllable inputs and experimentally identified...
Column flotation, as a selective separation process based on differences in surface properties, is used for a broad range of applications in the mineral processing industry, including metallic, non-metallic, and coal ores, as well as wastewater treatment over the last fifty years. Flotation is a...
This thesis focuses on the power allocation during the channel training process for three cooperative relay networks: a one-way single-relay network, a one-way multi-relay network and a two-way single-relay network. For these three networks, under the amplify-and-forward (AF) scheme, we...
