  • 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 ...

  • Azarsa, Pejman; Gupta, Rishi (Micron, 2018)
    Cementitious Repair Materials (CRMs) in the construction industry have been used for many decades now and has become a very important part of activities in cement world. The performance of some of these CRMs when applied ...
  • Ghamsari-Esfahani, A.; Save, P.W.; Froese, Thomas M. (CSCE 3rd International / 9th Construction Specialty Conference, 2011)
    Construction management and sustainability have long been interlinked as it is well known that construction affects people’s lives during building and throughout the lifespan of the completed works. This paper presents ...
  • Sridharan, Ajay; Gao, Yong; Wu, Kui; Nastos, James (2010)
    Degree distribution of nodes, especially a power law degree distribution, has been regarded as one of the most significant structural characteristics of social and information networks. Node degree, however, only discloses ...
  • Froese, Thomas M. (Annual Conference of the Canadian Society for Civil Engineering, 1996)
    Product and process model data standards are required to provide the unifying language through which integrated computer systems for architecture, engineering, and construction can converse. STEP, the Standard for the ...
  • Askari, Esfandyar; Seyfoori, Amir; Amereh, Meitham; Gharaie, Sadaf Samimi; Ghazali, Hanieh Sadat; Ghazali, Zahra Sadat; Khunjush, Bardia; Akbari, Mohsen (Gels, 2020)
    Currently, surgical operations, followed by systemic drug delivery, are the prevailing treatment modality for most diseases, including cancers and trauma-based injuries. Although effective to some extent, the side effects ...
  • Froese, Thomas M.; Rankin, Jeff H. (Journal of Information Technology in Construction, 2014)
    A strategic planning initiative was undertaken to advance innovation in the Canadian construction industry. A preliminary step in this strategic planning process was to carry out an inventory of the current state of research ...
  • Hernandes, J.A.; Suleman, Afzal (Shock and Vibration, 2014)
    A new method for the synthesis of structures with prescribed target natural frequencies and mode shapes is presented. The introduction of a modal Rayleigh quotient approximation based on the target mode shapes is the means ...
  • Froese, Thomas M.; Aranda-Mena, Guillermo; Chevez, Agustin; Crawford, John (Congrès annuel 2008 de la SCGC / CSCE 2008 Annual Conference, 2008)
    Building Information Model (BIM) technology has received much attention in research, commercial software, and industrial practice. Yet its use in practice represents only early adopters, as most potential users remain ...
  • Chen, Shuwen; Jin, Shilong; Gordon, Reuven (Physical Review X, 2014-08-01)
    Radiationless electromagnetic interference (REI) has been used to achieve focusing below Abbe’s diffraction limit. Here, we demonstrate an approach to REI that uses the Fano resonance of subwavelength slits to achieve ...
  • Chen, Shuwen; Jin, Shilong; Gordon, Reuven (American Physical Society, 2014-08-01)
    Radiationless electromagnetic interference (REI) has been used to achieve focusing below Abbe’s diffraction limit. Here, we demonstrate an approach to REI that uses the Fano resonance of subwavelength slits to achieve ...
  • Li, Wei; Gulliver, T. Aaron (Hindawi Publishing Corporation, 2004-02-29)
    We introduce a new successive interference cancellation (SIC) technique for direct sequence code division multiple access (DSCDMA) systems with transmit diversity. The transmit diversity is achieved with a space-time block ...
  • Chen, Shuwen; Jin, Shilong; Gordon, Reuven (Optics Express, 2014-05-27)
    A theory is presented for the transmission of transverse magnetic waves through a finite number of subwavelength slits in metal film. While a single slit achieves the single channel limit on resonance, multiple slits show ...
  • Nongpiur, Rajeev; Shpak, D. J. (IEEE, 2014-08-01)
    A new method for the synthesis of linear and planar arrays having prescribed beamwidth and sidelobe levels and a minimum number of elements is proposed. In the method, the number of elements in an array is minimized while ...
  • Niazi, Amir; Prasher, Shiv O.; Adamowski, Jan; Gleeson, Tom (Water, 2014)
    Groundwater depletion poses a significant threat in arid and semi-arid areas where rivers are usually ephemeral and groundwater is the major source of water. The present study investigated whether an effective water resources ...
