Vibration Isolation Of A Carbon Nanotube Filled With A Mass Chain
Vibration isolation is one of the most prominent characteristics of elastic metamaterial with negative effective mass. In this work, we show that a carbon nanotube filled with a linear mass chain can behave like an elastic ...
The Breakfast Club (1986)
(Glendon College Creative Writing and Dramatic Arts Program, 2016-01-20)
Archival file for the Glendon College production ofJohn Hughes's The Breakfast Club, directed by Megan St-Pierre. The play was performed from January 20th to the 23rd
A free-standing space elevator structure: a practical alternative to the space tether
Space tethers have been investigated widely as a means to provide easy access to space. However, the design and construction of such a device presents significant unsolved technological challenges. We propose an alternative ...
Modelling Thermal Conductivity Of Porous Thermal Barrier Coatings For High-Temperature Aero Engines Using Five Phase Model
Thermal Barrier Coatings (TBC) are used to shield hot sections of gas turbine engines, helping to prevent the melting of metallic surfaces. This paper proposes a Five-phase model to calculate the effective thermal conductivity ...
Vibration Control Of Downtown Toronto High-Rise Development
In this industry-academia collaboration, a multi-platform hybrid numerical simulation was performed to assess the effectiveness of a tuned liquid damper (TLD) to be installed in a high-rise condominium located in Downtown ...
Children's Oxygen Consumption Responses to Self-Paced Active Play and Prescribed Treadmill Exercise
The intensity and intervals of physical activity (PA) are important in eliciting dose-dependent physical and physiological adaptations. The objectives of the study were to examine the VO2 responses plus accelerometer-based ...
“Feminism, Conflict and Disasters in Post-Tsunami Sri Lanka”
(Sage Publications, 2008)
Social relations, including gender, are destabilized by conflict and disaster. Approaches informed by feminist thought illustrate this by probing the ways in which different identities and locations produce inequality, ...
Natural Frequencies Of Internally-Doubly-Tapered Laminated Composite Beams
In the present study, the free vibration response of symmetric thickness-and-width-tapered (doubly-tapered) laminated composite beams is investigated. Considering the continuous-plies-interspersed ply drop-off configuration, ...
On-Line Determination Of A Go-Nogo State Using A Continous Estimation Of The System Response
The formulation, tuning and performance of a signal prediction algorithm as applied to the determination of a Go-NoGo state are discussed. Simulations were used to tune and assess the performance of the signal prediction ...
