Geohazard monitoring is becoming increasingly important alongside increased expectations for the protection of the public. Technological advances in the field of remote monitoring and instrumentation has allowed for an economically efficient means of data collection. Traditional methods of...
The Application of Front End Planning and Special Purpose Simulation Templates to Drainage Tunnel ConstructionDownload
The Construction Industry Institute (CII) has a best practice under the heading “Front End Planning” (1995) that is meant to ensure that projects are as complete, as optimized, and as certain as possible throughout the project life cycle. In order to demonstrate this, the Project Definition...
Asphalt pavement is subject to stresses induced by heavy traffic loading and thermal variations during its service life. Nowadays, increasing the permissible axle loads along with the impact of climate change have caused premature failure in the flexible pavement. Enhancing the properties of...
The subtalar joint forms part of the triple joint complex in the foot and is primarily responsible for inversion and eversion of the hind foot and ankle. Injury to the subtalar joint typically arises as a result of primary osteoarthritis or sequelae of injury. When non-invasive treatments are no...
Talar collapse results in incongruity of the ankle joint, resulting in pain, stiffness, and disability. In the past, standard treatment has been surgical fusion or total ankle arthroplasty. These treatments can result in a loss of motion and function of the foot, as well as pseudarthrosis. A...
The Development of Random Generators of Weather and Industrial Pipelines Data using Parametric and Non-Parametric ApproachesDownload
Construction projects are unique and complex in nature. They are associated with many challenges regarding the randomness, complexity, and interdependency related to the operation/process, the environment hosting the operation, and the product being constructed. These challenges are also common...
Macro-mechanical behaviour of a material in response to applied loads is governed by its microstructural characteristics. The relative volume fraction of the constituent phases, their connectivity and interface are some of the microstructural features that have significant impact on the load...
The Geochemical Evolution of Oil Sands Tailings Pond Seepage, Resulting from Diffusive Ingress Through Underlying Glacial Till SedimentsDownload
Oil sands tailings are comprised of sands, silts, clays, and process-affected water (OSPW). The latter includes high concentrations of dissolved ions, as well as organic contaminants, making the water toxic to aquatic organisms. In Northern Alberta, tailings ponds are being constructed on...
An ecological risk assessment for the Athabasca River was done. We did a review of literature pertaining to ecological risk assessment in the Athabasca River. The focus of the risk assessment was on the ecological impact of low dissolved oxygen (DO), because mainly ice-cover and pulp mill...
The Impact of Semi-continuous and Alternating Microbial Feeding Patterns on Methane Yield from UASB ReactorsDownload
The anaerobic treatment of wastewater is considered a promising technology for simultaneous organic matter removal and energy recovery. Compared to aerobic digestion, anaerobic digestion conserves energy and is cost-effective in handling high-strength wastewater and wastes. However, the high...
