  • Tightly-Coupled GNSS/Vision Using a Sky-Pointing Camera for Vehicle Navigation in Urban Areas 

    Gakne, Paul Verlaine; O'Keefe, Kyle P.G. (MDPI, Schulich School of Engineering, Geomatics Engineering, University of Calgary, http://www.mdpi.com/journal/sensors/apc, Publisher's version, 2018-04-17)
    This paper presents a method of fusing the ego-motion of a robot or a land vehicle estimated from an upward-facing camera with Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) signals for navigation purposes in urban environments. ...
  • Surface Estimation for Microwave Imaging 

    Kurrant, Douglas; Bourqui, Jeremie; Fear, Elise (MDPI, Schulich School of Engineering, Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of Calgary, http://www.mdpi.com/about/openaccess, Publisher's version, 2017-07-19)
    Biomedical imaging and sensing applications in many scenarios demand accurate surface estimation from a sparse set of noisy measurements. These measurements may arise from a variety of sensing modalities, including laser ...
  • Application of Extended Vortex Theory for Blade Element Analysis of Horizontal-axis Wind Turbines 

    Wood, D.H. (Renewable Energy, Schulich School of Engineering, University of Calgary, https://www.elsevier.com/about/our-business/policies/sharing, Post-print, 2018)
    Vortex theory is used in blade element analysis (BEA) of wind turbines to account for the finite number of blades, N, usually in terms of Prandtl's “tip loss function”, F. Wood et al. [1] calculated alternative “trailing ...
  • Environmental Modelling 

    Hassan, Quazi K. (Schulich School of Engineering, Geomatics Engineering, 2018)
    This is a lecture note series for the course ENGO 583/ENEN 635 Environmental Modelling. These cover the following topics: nature and purpose of environmental modelling; the top-down and the bottom-up approaches; typology ...
  • Assessment of Different Sensor Configurations for Collaborative Driving in Urban Environments 

    Petovello, Mark G; O'Keefe, Kyle; Wei, P; Basnayake, Chaminda (Hindawi, Schulich School of Engineering, Geomatics Engineering, University of Calgary, https://www.hindawi.com/journals/apm/guidelines/, Publisher's version, 2013-01-07)
    Vehicle-to-vehicle relative navigation of a network of vehicles travelling in an urban canyon is assessed using least-squares and Kalman filtering covariance simulation techniques. Between-vehicle differential GPS is ...
  • An integrated geology and reservoir engineering approach for modeling of a giant fractured basement reservoir 

    Chen, Zhangxing (John); Dang, Cuong; Nguyen, Ngoc; Phung, T. (International Journal of Oil, Gas and Coal Technology, Schulich School of Engineering, Chemical & Petroleum Engineering, University of Calgary, 2015)
    A great portion of the world's oil reserves is contained in naturally fractured reservoirs (NFRs). As the conventional oil and gas reservoirs have become significantly depleted whereas energy demand sharply increases, the ...
  • Framework of multiuser satisfaction for assessing interaction models within collaborative virtual environments 

    Erfanian, Aida; Hu, Yaoping; Zeng, Tao (IEEE Press, http://www.ieeesmc.org/publications/transactions-on-human-machine-systems, Schulich School of Engineering, Dept. of Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of Calgary, 2017)
    Collaborative virtual environments (VEs) require interaction models for resolving conflicts and promoting multi-user collaboration. Common models, such as the first-come-first-serve (FCFS) model, which grants interaction ...
  • Dynamics of viscous liquid bridges inside microchannels subject to external oscillatory flows 

    Chen, Zhangxing (John); Ahmadlouydarab, M.; Azaiez, J. (Physical Review E, Schulich School of Engineering, Chemical & Petroleum Engineering, University of Calgary, 2015-02)
    We report on two-dimensional simulations of liquid bridges' dynamics inside microchannels of uniform wettability and subject to an external oscillatory flow rate. The oscillatory flow results in a zero net flow rate and ...
  • On the comparison of properties of Rayleigh waves in elastic and viscoelastic media 

    Chen, Zhangxing (John); He, Y.; Gao, J. (International Journal of Numerical Analysis and Modeling, Schulich School of Engineering, Chemical & Petroleum Engineering, University of Calgary, 2011)
    Dispersion properties of Rayleigh‐type surface waves can be used for imaging and characterizing the shallow subsurface. This paper uses the time‐domain finite difference method on the Rotated staggered grid to simulates ...
  • Capillary forces between two parallel plates connected by a liquid bridge 

    Chen, Zhangxing (John); Dejam, M.; Hassanzadeh, H. (Journal of Porous Media, Schulich School of Engineering, Chemical & Petroleum Engineering, University of Calgary, 2015)
    Liquid flow between porous and nonporous materials plays an important role in many science and engineering applications such as oil recovery from fractured porous media. The capillary continuity between porous matrix blocks ...
