Reproduction of anatomical structures by rapid prototyping has proven to be a valid adjunct for craniofacial surgery, providing alternative methods to produce prostheses and development of surgical guides. The aim of this study was to introduce a methodology to fabricate asymmetric human...
In the oil sands extraction process, bitumen (crude oil) is separated from the sands in the Primary Separation Vessel (PSV) through a water-based gravity separation process. The interface between froth (crude oil) and middlings (water and sand) is the most important control variable in the PSV...
Measurements of frazil ice characteristics in both laboratory and field environments have each been hindered by different challenges to date. In the laboratory, the resolution of the digital imaging systems used to photograph suspended particles has limited the size of the smallest frazil ice...
Viscosity reduction is critically important for heavy oil extraction and experimental studies have shown this can be achieved by injection of a light solvent into a reservoir and dilution of heavy oil in place. Solvent-based methods have challenges like slow diffusion process and oil production...
Real-time Process Monitoring for Froth Flotation Processes using Image Processing and Dynamic Fundamental ModelsDownload
Froth flotation is a crucial and complex process, which has been used in various industries for the purpose of separation and beneficiation. Various classes of factors including chemistry, operational, or equipment influence the process outputs. Its complex nature makes it difficult to control...
Scalable Solutions to Image Abnormality Detection and Restoration using Limited Contextual InformationDownload
Detecting and interpreting image abnormalities and restoring images are essential to many processing pipelines in diverse fields. Challenges involved include randomness and unstructured nature of image artefacts (from signal processing perspective) and performance constraints imposed by...
The Effects of Axial Loading on the Disc and Motion Segment Relative to Disc Degeneration and Pain Using Novel MRI BiomarkersDownload
The underlying pathology of low back pain (LBP) is poorly understood. Although MRI is often used as a sensitive modality for depicting pathoanatomical abnormalities, it is often clinically inconclusive due to a lack of specificity. While most patients experience symptoms when the spine is loaded,...
