    Authors: Sabuj, MD Rokibujjaman;

    Selective laser melting (SLM) popularity is increasing day by day because of its ability to produce a satisfactory part quality. For getting the desired qualities of the product, the process parameters play a vital role in manufacturing. Therefore, the process parameters need to tune appropriately to get good products. Besides, researchers use quality predictive analysis with different combinations of the process parameters to improve the product quality in manufacturing. To predict product quality, the existing methods mostly focus on multiple inputs and one or two outputs-based prediction modeling, which is insufficient. Because more qualities of the products often test for qualifying a good product. That is why this thesis presents a multi-inputs and multi-outputs (MIMO) artificial neural network (ANN) model to predict the SLM product qualities. Among all process parameters used for SLM, four process parameters, that are laser power, scan speed, overlap rate, and hatch distance, have been chosen as the model inputs. And four of the important product’s quality measures, that are relative density, hardness, tensile strength, and porosity, are used as the model's outputs. In order to obtain an accurate neural network model, there are parameters such as the number of hidden layers and neurons in each hidden layer to optimize. This thesis uses the genetic algorithm (GA) to optimize the hidden layer and the number of neurons in each hidden layer from a given bound. After model optimization, sensitivity analysis is performed to evaluate the importance of the input parameters. Regarding the increased demand in SLM, it is also important to reduce its energy consumption. Therefore, an energy optimization method is developed using the neural network and genetic algorithm in this thesis. The objective of the optimization is to minimize the energy consumption of SLM manufacturing with a reduced compromisation of the quality requirements. The results presented in this thesis show a reduction in energy consumption of the selected SLM printer by 26% as compared to one existing study. The results of this study can be used in the industry to decrease their energy consumption further while maintaining the required quality.

    Authors: Ward-Able, Simon;

    This collaborative inquiry sought to answer the primary research question “How can a series of facilitated dialogues focused on mindfulness and adventure enhance student success within the Adventure Studies Department at Thompson Rivers University?”. Guiding this inquiry was the intention to work with the department and its students using an action research methodology that considered the Action Research Engagement model and an appreciative stance. Five second-year diploma students from the Adventure Studies Department participated in three dialogical methods of learning circle, participant journaling, and a focus group. Any interaction with participants adhered to the Royal Roads University Research Ethics Policy. Using both an inductive qualitative analysis and a deductive analysis the following four themes emerged: understanding mindfulness, mindfulness and adventure education, community, and emotional intelligence. Each conclusion ultimately informed recommendations that center on implementing mindfulness into the program and are worth pursuing. The recommendations are: adopt mindfulness into the Adventure Studies Department’s strategic plan, encourage staff to explore mindfulness for their own sake, and integrate mindfulness into the existing curriculum using guiding principles.

    Authors: Lees, Kevin;

    Ice is a prominent characteristic of water bodies in cold regions. For rivers regulated for hydropower operations, the production of ice particles can result in obstructions and subsequent performance issues during energy production. Rough and thickened ice covers resulting from high flow conditions can also lead to substantial hydraulic losses. While ice formations impact hydropower operations, a river’s flow hydrograph also influences ice processes from freeze-up through break-up. Research investigations into the influence of regulation on ice processes benefits not only hydropower practioners, but also those who are impacted by hydropower operations. Further, understanding these cause-and-affect relationships supports design of innovative tools to quantify the impact of ice on river hydraulics. In this study, a detailed characterization of ice processes is presented for the regulated Upper Nelson River region located at the outlet of Lake Winnipeg in Northern Manitoba, Canada. With a focus on freeze-up and mid-winter processes, this characterization informed design of a 2D numerical modelling methodology to simulate ice-affected winter hydraulics. Model development included simulation of both thermal and dynamic ice phenomenon, which relied on derivation of numerous site-specific hydraulic functions. The presence of significant skim ice runs in this region inspired development of a novel treatment to simulate freeze-up jamming of skim ice floes on very mild-sloped rivers. The modelling methodology shows strong performance in simulating both freeze-up and mid-winter hydraulics, which is a signficiant contribution considering the complexity of this lake-outlet system. A quantitative evaluation of the effects of climate change on river ice hydraulics is included, with future projection of shorter and warmer winters leading to greater cumulative discharge from Lake Winnipeg. While discharge increases may lead to increased power production in future years, concurrent projections of increased inter-annual variability may present new operational challenges. Findings from this original research can be applied not only to the Nelson River, but also other regulated regions that are impacted by river ice.

  • Authors: Deakin, Annabeth;

    Throughout Queen’s University’s 2013-2015 excavations at the Etruscan and Roman city of Caere, numerous Roman ceramic oil lamps were found in the Vigna Marini-Vitalini, the modern name for one area located within the city’s urban centre. This project aims to input these lamps into their respective typological classifications in order to relate them to the overall chronology of the site, specifically in correlation with their contexts, and with a focus on the Roman period of occupation. To investigate this, the paper provides a historical background to Caere, during the ancient period, and an overview of the excavations conducted on the site. Next, there is a brief introduction to the study of lamps, and how typologies work as a methodology. Then the paper will examine the archaeological data to understand the lamp’s archaeological contexts by analyzing their deposition, with a subsequent typological discussion. Thus, this compiled research will shed light on the material culture of Caere during the Roman period and provide broader discourse on the techniques of pottery production and distribution during the late Roman Republic to early Imperial periods.

    The dataset compiles pigment content, absorptance data, photosynthetic parameters and primary production data as proxies for summertime photoacclimation of the temperate intertidal eelgrass Zostera marina after a 25-day exposure to a natural light intensity gradient (6, 36, 74, 133, 355, 503 and 860 µmol photons/m²/s) under laboratory conditions at the Pointe-au-Père research station, East Rimouski, Quebec, Canada. The data bundle contains: 1) photosynthetic and total absorptance data at the end of the experiment, which respectively represent the fraction of incident visible light absorbed by the photosynthetic tissues corrected and not corrected for non-photosynthetic absorption; 2) pigment content at the end of the experiment, which includes chlorophyll a and b and total carotenoids contents; 3) photosynthetic parameters obtained by Rapid Light Curves (RLC) on days 5 and 25, including photosynthetic apparatus efficiency (alpha), capacity (ETRmax) and saturation (Ek); 4) whole shoot primary production at the end of the experiment, which was calculated from oxygen fluxes under light and dark conditions, and normalized by leaf surface.

    Authors: Al Hammouri, Saba;

    Purpose: To understand the level of intercultural literacy exhibited by Canadian post-secondary institutions in their efforts to communicate and recruit international students through the use of targeted publications, such as the viewbook. Design: This project uses a case study approach that examines nine viewbooks from the top five universities in Canada using a heuristic developed from existing literature surrounding intercultural communication, cultural variations, and Hofstede's cultural dimensions. Findings: This study found that most of the institutions examined failed to demonstrate an adequate level of intercultural literacy, as most of their publications favoured Canadian cultural elements rather than adapting to the international audiences they wish to recruit. The findings of the study also highlight that there is often little to no variation between the international and domestic versions of the viewbooks, further illustrating a lack of effort in adaptation. Originality and Value: This research provides a tool that can be used by organizations and industries, domestically and globally when trying to understand how to communicate effectively with individuals from various cultural backgrounds.

    Authors: Quijada-Rodriguez, Alex;

    Decapod crustaceans regularly face intrinsic and extrinsic stressors that challenge pH homeostasis, which is compensated through the process of acid-base regulation. Prior research on acid-base regulation in crustaceans has focused on stressors commonly experienced during day-to-day life like exercise or that experienced in estuarine environments such as changes in O2, CO2, and salinity. More recent work has centralized on ocean acidification. However, the effects of global change on freshwater crustaceans (chapter 2) and the effects of elevated CO2 in aquaculture (chapter 3) have been largely ignored. In addition, the effects of feeding on acid-base regulation (chapter 4) have gone unstudied and may have direct implications on responses to global change and aquaculture. This thesis addressed this gap in the literature using the Chinese mitten crab Eriocheir sinensis, Whiteleg shrimp Litopenaeus vannamei, and Green crab Carcinus maenas as models. In chapter 2, I identified that freshwater acidification leads to a greater reliance on protein catabolism and an energetic trade-off allowing for compensation of pH homeostasis but impairment of other physiological processes like calcification and locomotory behaviour. In chapter 3, I determined that chronic growth of Whiteleg shrimp in CO2 levels found in aquaculture facilities did not affect growth or survival when reared in brackish water as opposed to what is seen when reared in full-strength seawater. While growth and survival are unimpaired, extracellular acid-base status varies between shrimp grown at low and high CO2, suggesting a potential for chronic impairment of pH homeostasis. In chapter 4, I found that feeding leads to respiratory acidosis, likely driven by increased acid production from postprandial aerobic metabolism. This acid-base disturbance was not compensated through the accumulation of HCO3- as is seen with respiratory acidosis caused by increased environmental CO2. Instead, acidosis was mainly recovered through large increases in ammonia and to a lesser degree titratable acid excretion. Overall, the data in this thesis provides valuable insights into understanding how global change and aquaculture influences the physiology of decapod crustaceans and provides fundamental information on feeding physiology to stimulate future research into the combined effects of feeding during aquaculture acid-base stressors.

    "According to Statistics Canada, fewer than 1,000 people speak fluent Michif - and most of them are over the age of 70,"says Dr. Melanie Griffith Brice, the Gabriel Dumont Research Chair in Métis/Michif Education for the Faculty of Education at the University of Regina. Brice says this puts pressure on those fluent in the language, and means there is a lot of urgency to passing Michif on to younger generations. "Two fluent Michif speakers have died since the first Michif immersion language-learning camp that Saskatchewan Urban Native Teacher Education Program (SUNTEP) put on last summer. So it's a priority to work with other language activists to design projects to help to pass Michif on before it's too late and the language and all its fluent speakers are gone,"says Brice. Staff no

    The physical properties of weft knitted fabrics can be modified according to the fabric structure and the raw material used to manufacture the final fabric. This research demonstrates the influence of fiber types and fabric structure on some specific physical properties such as bursting strength, wicking behavior, pilling effect, and abrasion resistance of weft knitted fabrics. For this purpose, in this research study, one natural fiber cotton, one regenerated fiber viscose, and one synthetic fiber polyester were used. At the same time, to avoid any conflicts of the other fabric production factors, the number of feeders, machine diameter, needle gauge, stitch length was kept constant during the production of the weft-knitted fabrics. Moreover, three different structures of single jersey fabric like plain single jersey, single lacoste, and double lacoste were used to produce nine single jerseys of weft knitted fabric, while in each knit structure, three fabrics were produced using 100% cotton, 100% viscose, and 100% polyester fiber. Statistical analysis has been performed along with factorial analysis of variance (ANOVA) followed by simple main effect and simple comparison analysis. The finding illustrates that both fiber types and fabric structure regulate the physical properties of weft knitted fabrics. The polyester fiber seems to possess excellent mechanical properties such as bursting strength, abrasion, and pilling resistance without any influence of fabric structures studied in this research. However, both the fiber types and fabric structure combinedly influence the wicking of weft knitted fabrics. Additionally, it has been assumed that the influence of fiber types and fabric structure on strength, pilling, abrasion-resistant, and wicking properties of fabrics also combined with the areal density and extensibility of weft knitted fabrics.

    Authors: Sabuj, MD Rokibujjaman;

    Selective laser melting (SLM) popularity is increasing day by day because of its ability to produce a satisfactory part quality. For getting the desired qualities of the product, the process parameters play a vital role in manufacturing. Therefore, the process parameters need to tune appropriately to get good products. Besides, researchers use quality predictive analysis with different combinations of the process parameters to improve the product quality in manufacturing. To predict product quality, the existing methods mostly focus on multiple inputs and one or two outputs-based prediction modeling, which is insufficient. Because more qualities of the products often test for qualifying a good product. That is why this thesis presents a multi-inputs and multi-outputs (MIMO) artificial neural network (ANN) model to predict the SLM product qualities. Among all process parameters used for SLM, four process parameters, that are laser power, scan speed, overlap rate, and hatch distance, have been chosen as the model inputs. And four of the important product’s quality measures, that are relative density, hardness, tensile strength, and porosity, are used as the model's outputs. In order to obtain an accurate neural network model, there are parameters such as the number of hidden layers and neurons in each hidden layer to optimize. This thesis uses the genetic algorithm (GA) to optimize the hidden layer and the number of neurons in each hidden layer from a given bound. After model optimization, sensitivity analysis is performed to evaluate the importance of the input parameters. Regarding the increased demand in SLM, it is also important to reduce its energy consumption. Therefore, an energy optimization method is developed using the neural network and genetic algorithm in this thesis. The objective of the optimization is to minimize the energy consumption of SLM manufacturing with a reduced compromisation of the quality requirements. The results presented in this thesis show a reduction in energy consumption of the selected SLM printer by 26% as compared to one existing study. The results of this study can be used in the industry to decrease their energy consumption further while maintaining the required quality.

    Authors: Ward-Able, Simon;

    This collaborative inquiry sought to answer the primary research question “How can a series of facilitated dialogues focused on mindfulness and adventure enhance student success within the Adventure Studies Department at Thompson Rivers University?”. Guiding this inquiry was the intention to work with the department and its students using an action research methodology that considered the Action Research Engagement model and an appreciative stance. Five second-year diploma students from the Adventure Studies Department participated in three dialogical methods of learning circle, participant journaling, and a focus group. Any interaction with participants adhered to the Royal Roads University Research Ethics Policy. Using both an inductive qualitative analysis and a deductive analysis the following four themes emerged: understanding mindfulness, mindfulness and adventure education, community, and emotional intelligence. Each conclusion ultimately informed recommendations that center on implementing mindfulness into the program and are worth pursuing. The recommendations are: adopt mindfulness into the Adventure Studies Department’s strategic plan, encourage staff to explore mindfulness for their own sake, and integrate mindfulness into the existing curriculum using guiding principles.

    Authors: Lees, Kevin;

    Ice is a prominent characteristic of water bodies in cold regions. For rivers regulated for hydropower operations, the production of ice particles can result in obstructions and subsequent performance issues during energy production. Rough and thickened ice covers resulting from high flow conditions can also lead to substantial hydraulic losses. While ice formations impact hydropower operations, a river’s flow hydrograph also influences ice processes from freeze-up through break-up. Research investigations into the influence of regulation on ice processes benefits not only hydropower practioners, but also those who are impacted by hydropower operations. Further, understanding these cause-and-affect relationships supports design of innovative tools to quantify the impact of ice on river hydraulics. In this study, a detailed characterization of ice processes is presented for the regulated Upper Nelson River region located at the outlet of Lake Winnipeg in Northern Manitoba, Canada. With a focus on freeze-up and mid-winter processes, this characterization informed design of a 2D numerical modelling methodology to simulate ice-affected winter hydraulics. Model development included simulation of both thermal and dynamic ice phenomenon, which relied on derivation of numerous site-specific hydraulic functions. The presence of significant skim ice runs in this region inspired development of a novel treatment to simulate freeze-up jamming of skim ice floes on very mild-sloped rivers. The modelling methodology shows strong performance in simulating both freeze-up and mid-winter hydraulics, which is a signficiant contribution considering the complexity of this lake-outlet system. A quantitative evaluation of the effects of climate change on river ice hydraulics is included, with future projection of shorter and warmer winters leading to greater cumulative discharge from Lake Winnipeg. While discharge increases may lead to increased power production in future years, concurrent projections of increased inter-annual variability may present new operational challenges. Findings from this original research can be applied not only to the Nelson River, but also other regulated regions that are impacted by river ice.

  • Authors: Deakin, Annabeth;

    Throughout Queen’s University’s 2013-2015 excavations at the Etruscan and Roman city of Caere, numerous Roman ceramic oil lamps were found in the Vigna Marini-Vitalini, the modern name for one area located within the city’s urban centre. This project aims to input these lamps into their respective typological classifications in order to relate them to the overall chronology of the site, specifically in correlation with their contexts, and with a focus on the Roman period of occupation. To investigate this, the paper provides a historical background to Caere, during the ancient period, and an overview of the excavations conducted on the site. Next, there is a brief introduction to the study of lamps, and how typologies work as a methodology. Then the paper will examine the archaeological data to understand the lamp’s archaeological contexts by analyzing their deposition, with a subsequent typological discussion. Thus, this compiled research will shed light on the material culture of Caere during the Roman period and provide broader discourse on the techniques of pottery production and distribution during the late Roman Republic to early Imperial periods.

    Authors: Al Hammouri, Saba;

    Purpose: To understand the level of intercultural literacy exhibited by Canadian post-secondary institutions in their efforts to communicate and recruit international students through the use of targeted publications, such as the viewbook. Design: This project uses a case study approach that examines nine viewbooks from the top five universities in Canada using a heuristic developed from existing literature surrounding intercultural communication, cultural variations, and Hofstede's cultural dimensions. Findings: This study found that most of the institutions examined failed to demonstrate an adequate level of intercultural literacy, as most of their publications favoured Canadian cultural elements rather than adapting to the international audiences they wish to recruit. The findings of the study also highlight that there is often little to no variation between the international and domestic versions of the viewbooks, further illustrating a lack of effort in adaptation. Originality and Value: This research provides a tool that can be used by organizations and industries, domestically and globally when trying to understand how to communicate effectively with individuals from various cultural backgrounds.

    Authors: Quijada-Rodriguez, Alex;

    Decapod crustaceans regularly face intrinsic and extrinsic stressors that challenge pH homeostasis, which is compensated through the process of acid-base regulation. Prior research on acid-base regulation in crustaceans has focused on stressors commonly experienced during day-to-day life like exercise or that experienced in estuarine environments such as changes in O2, CO2, and salinity. More recent work has centralized on ocean acidification. However, the effects of global change on freshwater crustaceans (chapter 2) and the effects of elevated CO2 in aquaculture (chapter 3) have been largely ignored. In addition, the effects of feeding on acid-base regulation (chapter 4) have gone unstudied and may have direct implications on responses to global change and aquaculture. This thesis addressed this gap in the literature using the Chinese mitten crab Eriocheir sinensis, Whiteleg shrimp Litopenaeus vannamei, and Green crab Carcinus maenas as models. In chapter 2, I identified that freshwater acidification leads to a greater reliance on protein catabolism and an energetic trade-off allowing for compensation of pH homeostasis but impairment of other physiological processes like calcification and locomotory behaviour. In chapter 3, I determined that chronic growth of Whiteleg shrimp in CO2 levels found in aquaculture facilities did not affect growth or survival when reared in brackish water as opposed to what is seen when reared in full-strength seawater. While growth and survival are unimpaired, extracellular acid-base status varies between shrimp grown at low and high CO2, suggesting a potential for chronic impairment of pH homeostasis. In chapter 4, I found that feeding leads to respiratory acidosis, likely driven by increased acid production from postprandial aerobic metabolism. This acid-base disturbance was not compensated through the accumulation of HCO3- as is seen with respiratory acidosis caused by increased environmental CO2. Instead, acidosis was mainly recovered through large increases in ammonia and to a lesser degree titratable acid excretion. Overall, the data in this thesis provides valuable insights into understanding how global change and aquaculture influences the physiology of decapod crustaceans and provides fundamental information on feeding physiology to stimulate future research into the combined effects of feeding during aquaculture acid-base stressors.
