In the development of a numerical model for the water cycle on Mars, adsorption of water vapour in the Martian regolith acts as a significant sink and retards the transport of mass. Adsorption on Mars cannot be studied directly, so a numerical model was created, and a diffusion sorption...
The objective of this thesis was to biomechanically examine the potential usage and limitations of a suspended aid for practicing circles on a pommel horse. The first study examined the influence of a suspended aid on the pommel reaction forces. Twenty gymnasts performed three sets of 10 circles...
Abstract: Polished (001) cleavage faces of Nain Labradorite (An almost-equal-to 56) were leached at 20-degrees-C (+/- 2-degrees) for 72 days in distilled water (pH almost-equal-to 5.6), in HCl solution (pH almost-equal-to 4.05) and in four other HCl solutions containing 1 mg/l or less of Na, K,...
Quantitative information on the uptake and distribution of Al at the cellular level is required to understand mechanisms of Al toxicity, but direct measurement of uptake across the plasma membrane has remained elusive. We measured rates of Al transport across membranes in single cells of Chara...
In this submission, pH responsive poly(N-isopropylacrylamide)–based microgels were used to fabricate optical devices (etalons). We demonstrate that the optical properties of the etalons could be manipulated upon the application of an appropriate electric potential between the etalon and a counter...
Impact of peroxydisulfate in the presence of zero valent iron on the oxidation of cyclohexanoic acid and naphthenic acids from oil sands process-affected water
An investigation was conducted on heavy oil cracking using polarized hot stage microscopy and laser dynamic backscattering. Both of these in-situ techniques were used to monitor cracking reactions through the use of backscattering. The use of hot stage microscopy resulted in a series of...
Two liquid-solid reactions, in which the morphology of the solid changes as the reactions proceeds, were examined. One is the NA conversion in oil by decarboxylation on metal oxides and carbonates, and the other is the Kraft pulping in which lignin removal by delignification reaction. In the...
