Recent Submissions

  • Bio-inspired Design and Information Visualization 

    Eggermont, Marjan José (Science, University of Calgary, 2018-04-19)
    Bio-inspired design in recent years has been used successfully as a methodology in disciplines such as engineering, architecture, product design, and business. While still in an infant stage in terms of adoption in ...
  • Near-infrared incoherent broadband cavity enhanced absorption spectroscopy (NIR-IBBCEAS) for detection and quantification of major natural gas components 

    Prakash, Neeraj (Schulich School of Engineering, University of Calgary, 2018-04-24)
    The efforts for reducing carbon emissions by switching from coal to natural gas have created a bigger threat to global warming through natural gas leaks. Apart from the monetary losses, leakage of natural gas releases ...
  • Empirical Analysis of Asymmetric Cost Behavior 

    Lee, Joo Hyung (Haskayne School of Business, University of Calgary, 2018-04-24)
    The dominant cost behavior model described in current management accounting textbooks is based on the classification of costs into fixed costs and variable costs. Although this cost behavior model provides insights about ...
  • Coupled Studies of Shale Reservoirs Characterization and Simulation 

    Yang, Sheng (Schulich School of Engineering, University of Calgary, 2018-04-19)
    Coupled studies of characterization and simulation of shale reservoirs are documented in this thesis. The characterization of shale reservoirs includes the description of natural fractures, rock brittleness derived from ...
  • Hypersequent Calculi for Modal Logics 

    Burns, Samara Elizabeth (Arts, University of Calgary, 2018-04-23)
    This thesis surveys and examines hypersequent approaches to the proof theory of modal logics. Traditional sequent calculi for modal logics often fail to have many of the desirable properties that we expect of a sequent ...
  • Using machine learning methods to improve chronic disease case definitions in primary care electronic medical records 

    Lethebe, Brendan Cord (Cumming School of Medicine, University of Calgary, 2018-04-23)
    Background: Chronic disease surveillance at the primary care level is becoming more feasible with the increased use of electronic medical records (EMRs). However, the quality of surveillance information is directly dependent ...
  • Alignment of Freehand 2-D Ultrasound Images for 3-D Volumetric Reconstruction 

    Onyejekwe, Nwanneka Okeoghene (Science, University of Calgary, 2018-04-23)
    Ultrasound is an imaging modality used in many medical procedures including the diagnosis of diseases in Neonates. We aim to develop a Computer simulation using 3-D ultrasound to teach clinicians how to perform Neonatal ...
  • A Serial Communication-Based FPGA Co-Emulation Test Bench 

    Cao, Dingcheng (Schulich School of Engineering, University of Calgary, 2018-04-23)
    FPGA designs are verified first with the simulation testing on a computer to check their behavior, and next verified with the emulation tested in an actual FPGA system to check its functional and timing performance. ...
  • Against Three Arguments for a Free Market in Healthcare 

    Tumasz-Jordan, Elena (Arts, University of Calgary, 2018-04-23)
    Healthcare is not like other commodities. Central features of healthcare undermine the benefits of a free market. A free market in healthcare fails to exhibit the same virtues as markets in other goods and services. ...
  • Towards an Understanding of the Influence of Student Leadership Development on Early-Career Engineers 

    Paul, Robyn Mae (Schulich School of Engineering, University of Calgary, 2018-04-23)
    New engineering graduates must be equipped with diverse skillsets beyond their technical foundations to help solve the challenges of the twenty-first century. Among these skills includes an increasing recognition of the ...
