    • Bond Behaviour of Concrete Beams with Glass Fibre Reinforced Polymer Bars Under Fatigue Loading 

      Shihata, Ayman (University of Waterloo, 2019-01-17)
      Since the 1980s and after the aerospace industries faced several periods of economic difficulty, the companies that produced fibre-reinforced polymers (FRPs) started to introduce them as new materials for construction ...
    • Bond Behaviour of Corroded and CFRP Repaired RC Beams Subjected to Monotonic and Repeated Loading 

      Al-Hammoud, Rania (University of Waterloo, 2012-09-27)
      All reinforced concrete (RC) design theories are based on the assumption that concrete exhibits a perfect bond with the steel reinforcement. The bond between steel and concrete is essential to the transfer of the load ...
    • Bond of Corroded Reinforcement in Partial Depth Repairs in Reinforced Concrete Elements 

      Alabduljabbar, Hisham (University of Waterloo, 2017-08-29)
      The bond in a reinforcement concrete (RC) structure is represented by the force transfer between the reinforcing bar and the surrounding concrete. All the RC structures are designed to have a perfect bond between the ...
    • Bone health in adults with epilepsy 

      Fernandez, Haya (University of Waterloo, 2017-08-30)
      Epilepsy has been associated with an increased fracture risk by various studies in the literature. This is attributed to the decreased bone mineral density (BMD) linked to the anti–epileptic drugs (AEDs) that are used to ...
    • Boneh-Boyen Signatures and the Strong Diffie-Hellman Problem 

      Yoshida, Kayo (University of Waterloo, 2009-01-22)
      The Boneh-Boyen signature scheme is a short signature scheme which is provably secure in the standard model under the q-Strong Diffie-Hellman (SDH) assumption. The primary objective of this thesis is to examine the ...
    • Bootstrapping Secure Multicast using Kerberized Multimedia Internet Keying 

      Woo, Jeffrey Lok Tin (University of Waterloo, 2012-04-24)
      We address bootstrapping secure multicast in enterprise and public-safety settings. Our work is motivated by the fact that secure multicast has important applications in such settings, and that the application setting ...

      Skensved, Emmy (University of Waterloo, 2007-05-17)
      This thesis paper is the supporting document for an exhibition that was held at the University of Waterloo art Gallery. The show consisted of a series of large scale acrylic paintings on canvas. Through my paintings I ...
    • Boredom and Motivation: From Anxious Uncertainty and Low Approach Motivation to Low Self-Control 

      Britton, Emily (University of Waterloo, 2018-08-30)
      Across two studies, this research investigated trait (Study 1 and 2) and state (Study 2) level variation in anxious uncertainty and approach motivation as motivational substrates of boredom. It further tested a series of ...
    • Born Geometry 

      Svoboda, David (University of Waterloo, 2020-04-21)
      In this thesis, we summarize the work which we authored or co-authored during our PhD studies and also present additional details and ideas that are not found elsewhere. The main topic is the study of T-duality in theoretical ...
    • Boston Divided 

      Hutchinson, Kerri Anne-Marie (University of Waterloo, 2009-08-28)
      In 1974 Boston, Massachusetts was forced to confront its civil rights violations. In the case of Morgan v. Hennigan, Judge W. Arthur Garrity Jr. found the city of Boston guilty of intentionally segregating its public schools ...
    • BotChase: Graph-Based Bot Detection Using Machine Learning 

      Abou Daya, Abbas (University of Waterloo, 2019-05-21)
      Bot detection using machine learning (ML), with network flow-level features, has been extensively studied in the literature. However, existing flow-based approaches typically incur a high computational overhead and do not ...
    • Bottled Water and Packaging Waste: Policy Options and Instruments for Ontario 

      Leighton, Catherine (University of Waterloo, 2010-01-20)
      Ontarians are producing more waste per capita than previous generations and consuming more bottled water. Using the product policy quadrangle developed by Oosternhuis (1996), the research examines four components of Ontario ...
    • Bottom-Gate TFTs With Channel Layer Deposited by Pulsed PECVD 

      Grant, David James (University of Waterloo, 2004)
      Nanocrystalline silicon (nc-Si:H) is a promising material for Thin-Film Transistors (TFTs) offering potentially higher mobilities and improved stability over hydrogenated amorphous silicon (a-Si:H). The slow growth rate ...
    • Boundary Integral Equation Method in Elasticity with Microstructure 

      Shmoylova, Elena (University of Waterloo, 2006)
      Problems involving mechanical behavior of materials with microstructure are receiving an increasing amount of attention in the literature. First of all, it can be attributed to the fact that a number of recent experiments ...
    • Bounded Control of the Kuramoto-Sivashinsky equation 

      Al Jamal, Rasha (University of Waterloo, 2013-10-25)
      Feedback control is used in almost every aspect of modern life and is essential in almost all engineering systems. Since no mathematical model is perfect and disturbances occur frequently, feedback is required. The design ...
    • Bounds and Approximations for Stochastic Fluid Networks 

      Haddad, Jean-Paul (University of Waterloo, 2011-08-12)
      The success of modern networked systems has led to an increased reliance and greater demand of their services. To ensure that the next generation of networks meet these demands, it is critical that the behaviour and ...
    • Bounds on Aggregate Assets 

      Jiang, Xiao (University of Waterloo, 2014-01-23)
      Aggregating financial assets together to form a portfolio, commonly referred to as "asset pooling", is a standard practice in the banking and insurance industries. Determining a suitable probability distribution for this ...
    • Bounds on Maximum Matchings in 1-Planar Graphs 

      Wittnebel, John (University of Waterloo, 2019-01-29)
      In this thesis, we study lower bounds on maximum matchings in 1-planar graphs. We expand upon the tools used for proofs of matching bounds in other classes of graphs as well as some original ideas in order to find these ...
    • Bourassa’s War: Henri Bourassa and the First World War 

      Keelan, Geoff (University of Waterloo, 2015-01-26)
      This dissertation examines the perspective of French Canadian nationalist Henri Bourassa during the First World War from 1914-1918. Bourassa was one of the best-known voices rejecting the war’s purpose and value in Canada. ...
    • The bracketing breakdown: An exploration of risk tolerance in broad and narrow choice frames 

      Moher, Ester (University of Waterloo, 2009-09-01)
      The field of decision making has largely focused on the influence of contextual factors on risk tolerance. Much work has focused on how the problem itself is presented, in hopes of understanding the circumstances under ...
