Analyzing Network Connectivity by Cyclist Comfort: An Empirical Reappraisal of the Four Types of Cyclists Typology and Level of Traffic Stress FrameworkDownload
North America is seeing a resurgence of interest in cycling both for recreation and as a transportation mode. Cycling is touted as a means to reduce traffic congestion and its GHG emissions and pollution, increase livability, and provide a remedy to inactivity and its related health problems....
Smart windows, having electrically-controlled transmission and zero-energy consumption when maintaining a colored or colorless state, increase the energy efficiency of buildings because they offer the potential to greatly reduce the energy cost of lighting, heating and cooling. Currently, the...
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...
Three-dimensional slope stability effects in the failure at the Mount Polley Tailings Storage FacilityDownload
On 4 August 2014, a breach occurred in the perimeter embankment at the Mount Polley Tailings Storage Facility in British Columbia, Canada, causing a spill of mining waste into the environment. The Government of British Columbia retained an Independent Review Panel (2015) to determine the cause of...
This research aims at tackling a specific production engineering problem in sand retention testing (SRT). One common practice of operational oil companies is to prevent sanding by deploying standalone screens (SAS). SAS consists of slotted liners (SL), wire wrap screens (WWS), and punched screens...
This study was part of the development of an ice jam flood forecasting system for Hay River, NWT. 2-D numerical models were used to simulate ice processes in an effort to predict ice jam formation. A summer survey was conducted to finalize the bathymetry of the Hay River Delta. Observations were...
This study is part of a three year project aimed to assess the effects of industrial water withdrawals on the ice regime of the Athabasca River. A 2-D numerical model was used to provide quantitative data for this effort. Freeze-up monitoring was carried out over two years along 80-km of the...
2-D pore and core scale visualization and modeling of immiscible and miscible CO2 injection in fractured systemsDownload
Pore scale interaction between matrix and fracture during miscible and immiscible CO2 injection was studied experimentally using visual models. Initially, visualization experiments were conducted on 2-D glass bead packed models by injecting n-heptane (solvent) displacing different kinds of...
A technique to visualize miscible displacement in porous media using laser and the analysis of the results for different processes are presented in this thesis. After saturating the model made of different sized glass beads with oil, solvent was introduced either under dynamic (injection and...
A 3D Continuum Finite Element Muscle Model for the Investigation of Cervical Spine Load-Sharing Mechanisms and Injury Assessment during Impact Loading ScenariosDownload
The mechanical behavior of the individual cervical tissues as well as the head-neck complex kinematics plays a very important role in proper functioning of the cervical spine and is a key factor in more appropriate understanding of injury mechanism, prevention, detection, control and treatment....
