• Hamiltonian Systems of Hydrodynamic Type 

      Reynolds, A. Patrick (2010-12-23)
      We study the Hamiltonian structure of an important class of nonlinear partial differential equations: the so-called systems of hydrodynamic type, which are first-order in tempo-spatial variables, and quasi-linear. Chapters ...
    • On the Hydrodynamics of Anomalocaris Tail Fins 

      Sheppard, Kaley
      This thesis examines the hydrodynamic performance of a tail-fin abstraction of Anomalocaris canadensis, a large arthropod from the Cambrian period believed to have been an apex predator. Through direct force measurements ...
    • Simulations of Nottawasaga River Plume 

      Elbagoury, Dina
      Water quality degradation, in the form of undesirable algae, occurs near the Nottawasaga River mouth and along Wasaga Beach, located in southeastern Georgian Bay, Ontario. Runoff from fertilized agricultural areas, in the ...
    • The Treatment of Benzene, Toluene, Ethylbenzene and o-Xylene Using Two-Phase Partitioning Bioscrubbers 

      Littlejohns, Jennifer (2009-08-20)
      This thesis examined the biological treatment of gas streams containing benzene, toluene, ethylbenzene and o-xylene (BTEX) using solid-liquid two-phase partitioning bioscrubbers (SL-TPPBs). SL-TPPBs consist of a cell ...
