Design considerations for fixed node assisted multi-hop mobile sensor networks
Node mobility in Wireless Sensor Network poses a challenge to the routing protocol; it causes link breakages and disconnections between the nodes. This instability in the network leads to a drop in the successful transmission ...

Nonlinear vibration and frequency response analysis of piezoelectric-based nanotube resonators
To study the vibration behaviour of nanotube-based structures, different models of nanotubes under the effects of piezoelectric layer, intermediate mass, fluid flow and structure curvature are developed. The frequency ...
Electrochemical analysis of CuCl/HCl electrolyser
This thesis presents an electrochemical study on a CuCl/HCl electrolyser which is the hydrogen generation step of the CuCl thermochemical hydrogen production cycle. The anode electrolyte is solution of 2 mol.l−1 CuCl(aq) ...
Optimal farm design with parabolic shape photovoltaic panels using multi-objective optimization
To acquire the maximum efficiency for solar electricity conversion, a solar panel has to absorb nearly every single photon of light emitted from the sun. The shape of the solar panel itself plays an important role in ...
User-centric analytics for expert crowds
Pervasiveness and permissiveness of social media made content verification an integral part of any analysis involving online generated data. The most natural and convenient way to assess content trustworthiness and validity ...
Spectrum sharing for two-way relay networks
We consider a communication network consisting of two transceiver nodes, one relay node, and one receiving node. The relay enables a two-way communication between the two transceivers and meanwhile sends its own information ...
Development of an autonomous omnidirectional hazardous material handling robot
This thesis describes the prototyping and testing of an autonomous omnidirectional robot, called the OmniMaxbot. The OmniMaxbot is designed to carry cans of uranium ash at Cameco Corporation's Port Hope Conversion Facility ...
Development of novel energy systems for LNG locomotives
The use of diesel in the railway sector brings challenges to the engineers to meet the current emissions standards set by governments. This thesis addresses potential solutions to overcome the emissions problems in the ...
A framework for integrating wireless sensors and cloud computing
Wireless sensors generate a large volume of data that require a highly scalable framework that enables storage, processing, and analysis. Cloud computing technology can provide unlimited storage in addition to a flexible ...
