    • Salvage Montage 

      da Silva, Catia Marisa Costa (University of Waterloo, 2009-09-09)
      This thesis proposes a reinterpretation of assumptions towards material value. It is a positive argument in favour of adaptive re-use, not only as a means to divert waste but also as encouragement to reconsider our current ...
    • Sample size effect in ultrasonic testing of geomaterials - numerical and experimental study 

      Berube, Simon (University of Waterloo, 2008-05-21)
      Nondestructive evaluation of civil structures is of increasing interest to utility owners. Several methods exist to evaluate different properties of concrete, pavement, cemented sands and others. UPVM is the most commonly ...
    • Sampling Time Jitter 

      Seifi, Seyed Mohammad Ehsan (University of Waterloo, 2013-01-23)
      Electrical systems which use voltage transitions to represent timing information suffer from a degrading phenomenon called timing jitter. Sampling time jitter is the deviation of sampling clock from its ideal position. As ...
    • Sampling-based Program Execution Monitoring 

      Ba, Yanmeng (University of Waterloo, 2010-08-30)
      For its high overall cost during product development, program debugging is an important aspect of system development. Debugging is a hard and complex activity, especially in time-sensitive systems which have limited ...

    • Satellite Dynamics in Dark Matter Halos 

      Kamiab, Farbod (University of Waterloo, 2010-09-01)
      I have used an analytic model of tidal interactions to predict the evolution of a substructure in a static dark matter halo. Given the initial conditions of the satellite and background halo, the model predicts with high ...
    • Satellite observations of lake surface state to improve weather forecasting in a lake-rich region 

      Kheyrollah Pour, Homa (University of Waterloo, 2015-04-30)
      The thermal and dynamic properties of water bodies are important factors affecting the structure of the atmospheric boundary layer which stores and transports energy and mass. The storage and heat transfer of lakes play ...
    • Saturated and vadose zone fate and transport of a continuously released tracer in a sub-arctic bog peatland 

      Balliston, Nicole (University of Waterloo, 2017-02-22)
      In Ontario’s James Bay Lowland, sub-arctic bog and fen peatlands make up 90% of the landscape. Increasing resource extraction operations in this area pose a risk of contaminant release into these systems, both intentional ...
    • Saving Electrical Energy in Commercial Buildings 

      Case, Ryan (University of Waterloo, 2012-08-27)
