  • Oliveira, F.; Gil de Morais, P.; Suleman, A. (Procedia Engineering, 2015)
    A numerical and experimental analysis of semi-active (SA) control strategies for controlling seismic-excited structures is presented. A physical model consisting of a two degree-of-freedom (2DOF) mechanical system with a ...
  • Song, Aiguo; Song, Guangming; Constantinescu, Daniela; Wang, Lei; Song, Quanjun (Journal of Sensors, 2015)
  • Malgrange, Juliette; Gleeson, Tom (Journal of Geophysical Research: Solid Earth, 2014-01)
    The permeability of fault zones impacts diverse geological processes such as hydrocarbon migration, hydrothermal fluid circulation, and regional groundwater flow, yet how fault zones affect groundwater flow at a regional ...
  • Moradia, Vahid; Caws, Emmanuelle A.; Wilda, Peter M.; Buckley, Heather L. (Sensors and Actuators A: Physical, 2019)
    Naturally occurring elevated levels of fluoride in drinking water pose a health hazard throughout the developing world, with over 200 million people potentially impacted. In some cases, treatment methods or safer alternative ...
  • Bernardes, Carolina; Bernardes, Ricardo; Zimmer, Camille; Dorea, Caetano C. (Water, 2020)
    There is a need for accessible and low-cost microbiological water quality testing in contexts where diarrheal illness is a major public health concern. In most cases, the quantification of Escherichia coli and other microbial ...
  • Gharaie, Sadaf Samimi; Mohammad Hossein Dabiri, Seyed; Akbari, Mohsen (Polymers, 2018)
    In this study, we fabricated and characterized a smart shear-thinning hydrogel composed of gelatin and laponite for localized drug delivery. We added chitosan (Chi) and poly N-isopropylacrylamide-co-Acrylic acid (PNIPAM) ...
  • Shoolestani, Amir; Shoolestani, Behzad; Froese, Thomas M.; Vanier, Dana J. (CSCE International Construction Specialty Conference, 2015)
    Building and facility asset management is a strategic approach to the optimal capital and operational spending on assets to ensure control of cost and risk, asset life, performance, and stakeholder satisfaction. The decisions ...
  • Chua, Lai Heng; Paulson, Boyd C.; Froese, Thomas M. (The International Association for Automation and Robotics in Construction, 1990-06)
    The knowledge needs of an agent may be met by exploiting the knowledge environment. In particular, knowledge can be obtained from other agents or a variety of knowledge repositories such as databases. Humans readily satisfy ...
  • Iancu, Daniel; Glossner, John; Sima, Mihai; Farkas, Peter; McGuire, Michael (International Journal of Digital Multimedia Broadcasting, 2009-10)
  • Blaney, Sean; Gupta, Rishi (Cement and Concrete Composites, 2018)
    Standard sounding procedures such as hammer percussion and chain drag can be used to locate subsurface concrete defects, but are often subject to the individual judgement and ear of trained inspectors. However, defect depth ...
  • Murdoch, J; St. Pierre, A; Coady, Y; Carruthers, S; Gibbs, C; Lonergan, S; Srivastava, Gautam; Stege, U; Yazir, O (IEEE, 2008)
    Although IT industry is flourishing, student enrolment in Computer Science and related Engineering post-secondary degree programs is low. The causes and issues surrounding this trend are diverse, inter-related, and vastly ...
  • Fairley, I.; Smith, H.C.M.; Robertson, B.; 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 ...
  • Fairley, I.; Smith, H. C. M.; Robertson, Bryson; Abusara, M.; Masters, I. (Renewable Energy, 2017)
