A NEW APPROACH TO MODEL FRICTION LOSSES IN THE WATER-ASSISTED PIPELINE TRANSPORTATION OF HEAVY OIL AND BITUMENDownload
Water lubricated pipe flow technology is an economic alternative for the long distance transportation of viscous oils like heavy oil and bitumen. The lubricated flow regime involves an oil-rich core surrounded by a turbulent water annulus. Energy consumption associated with this type of pipeline...
Despite calls over several decades for theory development, there remains no overarching knowledge-translation theory. However, a range of models and theoretical perspectives focused on narrower and related areas have been available for some time. We provide an overview of selected perspectives...
A collection of working papers that helped inform the final report and recommendations, including: • Recommended Models for Calculating Diffusion From Point Sources With Applications to the Athabasca Bituminous Sands Area Western Research & Development Ltd • Meteorological Aspects of the...
The calibrated DOSTOC, NUSTOC and UNSTOC models from 1989 were used effectively to simulate measured 1990 Athabasca River water quality. Changes in effluent loadings at the two pulp mills and an increase in river flows in the lower Athabasca Basin accounted for some noticeable improvements in...
Abstract: Introduction: Partial bladder outlet obstruction (pBOO) is a ubiquitous problem that results in renal damage. We hypothesize that change in the bladder progresses over time. Methods: Fischer rats underwent surgical pBOO for 2, 4, 8, or 13 weeks and were compared to shams. Urodynamic...
Hydraulic transport is commonly employed in the mining industry to transport crushed ore to a processing facility. Dense slurry flows inflict heavy wear on pipes, leading to significant process downtime and loss of revenue. Several factors have been identified as key contributors to pipe wear. ...
Characterization of hypertrophic scar formation in nude and knockout mice deficient in T, B and natural killer cellsDownload
Introduction: Hypertrophic scar (HSc) is a fibroproliferative disorder lacking a relevant animal model. Our objective is to characterize proliferative scars in human xenografts generated after grafting human skin onto mice deficient in T, B and natural killer cells. Methods: Nude, T-cell...
Working in parallel with the efforts to sequence the chicken (Gallus gallus) genome, the Beijing Genomics Institute led an international team of scientists from China, USA, UK, Sweden, The Netherlands and Germany to map extensive DNA sequence variation throughout the chicken genome by sampling...
This study addresses the need to provide comprehensive historical climate data and climate change projections at a scale suitable for, and readily accessible to, researchers and resource managers. This database for western North America (WNA) includes over 20 000 surfaces of monthly, seasonal,...
