Recent Submissions

  • Rathod, Harsh; Debeck, Scott; Chow, Brian (Case Studies in Construction Materials, 2019)
    Much of Canada’s existing infrastructure was constructed during 1950s, 1960s and 1970s. These include all transportation infrastructures such as bridges, highways, tunnels, etc. It is important to know the condition of ...
  • Fairley, I.; Smith, H. C. M.; Robertson, Bryson; Abusara, M.; Masters, I. (Renewable Energy, 2017)
    Wave energy resources are intermittent and variable over both spatial and temporal scales. This is of concern when considering the supply of power to the electricity grid. This paper investigates whether deploying arrays ...
  • Muller, Hausi A. (Computer, 2017)
    It's expected that the cyber-physical systems revolution will be more transformative than the IT revolution of the past four decades.
  • Robinson, Meghan; Valente, Karolina Papera; Willerth, Stephanie M. (Biosensors, 2019)
    We have designed and validated a set of robust and non-toxic protocols for directly evaluating the properties of engineered neural tissue. These protocols characterize the mechanical properties of engineered neural tissues ...
  • Ahsani, Vahid; Ahmed, Farid; Jun, Martin B.G.; Bradley, Colin (Sensors, 2019)
    A Mach-Zehnder interferometer (MZI) based fiberoptic refractive index (RI) sensor is constructed by uniformly tapering standard single mode fiber (SMF) for RI measurement. A custom flame-based tapering machine is used to ...
  • Parkinson, Simon; Krey, Volker; Huppmann, Daniel; Kahil, Taher; McCollum, David; Fricko, Oliver; Byers, Edward; Gidden, Matthew J.; Mayor, Beatriz; Khan, Zarrar; Raptis, Catherine; Rao, Narasimha D.; Johnson, Nils; Wada, Yoshihide; Djilali, Ned; Riahi, Keywan (Environmental Research Letters, 2019)
    Energy systems support technical solutions fulfilling the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goal for clean water and sanitation (SDG6), with implications for future energy demands and greenhouse gas emissions. The ...
  • Kahil, Taher; Parkinson, Simon; Satoh, Yusuke; Greve, Peter; Burek, Peter; Veldkamp, Ted I.E.; Burtscher, Robert; Byers, Edward; Djilali, Ned; Fischer, Guenther; Krey, Volker; Langan, Simon; Riahi, Keywan; Tramberend, Sylvia; Wada, Yoshihide (Water Resources Research, 2018)
    This study presents the development of a new bottom‐up large‐scale hydroeconomic model, Extended Continental‐scale Hydroeconomic Optimization (ECHO), that works at a subbasin scale over a continent. The strength of ECHO ...
  • Singh, R.; Sui, P.C.; Wong, K.H.; Kjeang, E.; Knights, S.; Djilali, N. (Journal of the Electrochemical Society, 2018)
    A transient, isothermal, two-dimensional model coupling cell performance and chemical membrane degradation in a polymer electrolyte membrane fuel cell (PEMFC) is developed. The model is based on the conservation of and ...
  • Quiñonez-Piñón, M. Rebeca; Valeo, Caterina (Forests, 2018)
    The translucence and color change in wood methods, which are commonly used to differentiate sapwood from heartwood in tree cores, are compared against the microscopic analysis of wood anatomy method for determining sapwood ...
  • Bourgault, Catherine; Lessard, Paul; Remington, Claire; Dorea, Caetano C. (Water, 2019)
    Dewatering and drying of fecal sludge (FS) is a key treatment objective in fecal sludge management as it reduces volume (thereby reducing emptying frequency and associated transportation costs), inactivates pathogens, and ...
  • Uddin, Sayed Mohammad Nazim; Lapegue, Jean; Gutberlet, Jutta; Adamowski, Jan Franklin; Dorea, Caetano C.; Sorezo, Federico (Water, 2019)
    The use of closed-loop sanitation systems (CLSS), or reuse-oriented sanitation systems, has increased in recent years, and such systems have been successfully implemented in many parts of the world. However, no research ...
  • Quiñonez-Piñón, M. Rebeca; Valeo, Caterina (Forests, 2017)
    This paper analyzes sapwood variability and allometry within individuals of Populus tremuloides, Pinus contorta, Pinus banksiana, Picea mariana, and Picea glauca. Outside bark diameter at breast height (DBH) and sapwood ...
  • Heikkilä, Ville T.; Paasivaara, Maria; Lasssenius, Casper; Damian, Daniela; Engblom, Christian (Empirical Software Engineering, 2017)
    In a large organization, informal communication and simple backlogs are not sufficient for the management of requirements and development work. Many large organizations are struggling to successfully adopt agile methods, ...
  • Di Michele, F.; Felaco, E.; Gasser, Ingenuin; Serbinovskiy, A.; Struchtrup, Henning (Elsevier, 2019)
    Pressure retarded osmosis (PRO) power plants generate power from mixing of saltwater and freshwater by means of membrane systems. In this paper we present a model which describes the complete power station, suitable to ...
  • Liang, Xiaolin; Zhang, Hao; Lyu, Tingting; Xiao, Han; Gulliver, T. Aaron (EURASIP Journal on Advances in Signal Processing, 2017)
    This paper presents a new time of arrival (TOA) estimation technique using an improved energy detection (ED) receiver based on the empirical mode decomposition (EMD) in an impulse radio (IR) 60 GHz millimeter wave (MMW) ...
  • Ingebritsen, Steve; Gleeson, Tom (Hydrogeology Journal, 2017)
    Permeability is the dominant parameter in most hydrogeologic studies. There is abundant evidence for dynamic variations in permeability in time as well as space, and throughout the crust. Whether this dynamic behavior ...
  • Fluck, Manuel; Crawford, Curran (Wind Energy Science, 2017)
    Emerging stochastic analysis methods are of potentially great benefit for wind turbine power output and loads analysis. Instead of requiring multiple (e.g. 10min) deterministic simulations, a stochastic approach can enable ...
  • Kuruba, Nithin; Lu, Tao (Sensors, 2019)
    We present a bi-conical optical directional coupler composed of solid and hollow core fibers. Through an evanescent wave coupling mechanism, the detection of liquid refractive index and its temperature are demonstrated. ...
  • DeWolf, Timothy; Gordon, Reuven (Optics Express, 2017)
    We present a method for computing waveguide eigenmodes based on complex coupled mode theory (CCMT). This approach generalizes Fourier transform methods by allowing an arbitrary but convenient basis set to be used for the ...
  • Harischandrappa, Nagendrappa; Bhat, Ashoka K. S. (Electronics, 2019)
    The design and performance analysis of a 10 kW three-phase DC–DC LCL-type resonant converter having a built-in boost function were carried out. This high-power converter is proposed for its application in grid-interfacing ...
