      Lei, Calvin (University of Waterloo, 2021-01-14)
      Mountain valley bottom peatlands are poorly studied systems, particularly in Alberta, Canada, where the provincial inventory has neither mapped nor characterized them. Nonetheless, these ecosystems provide valuable ecosystem ...
    • Vegetation Response to Climate Change in North American National Parks: Policy & Management Implications 

      Wood, Lyle Daniel (University of Waterloo, 2008-01-28)
      Climate change is no longer debated in the context of whether or not it is occurring, but rather in the context of how rapid and extensive that change will be. This is the global situation to which the biomes of national ...
    • Vehicle Battery Pack Design and Considerations for Repurposing 

      Gaffney, Benjamin (University of Waterloo, 2015-09-28)
      The market for hybrid and electric vehicles is expanding with the rise of gas prices and desires to curb climate change. With the creation of these complex systems comes the development of advanced battery systems which ...
    • Vehicle Dynamic and Control of Constrained Multi-Actuation Systems at the Limits of Handling 

      Mashrouteh, Shamim (University of Waterloo, 2021-03-17)
      With recent advances in electric vehicles, having electric motors directly driving the wheels is gaining attraction. When a vehicle is equipped with four independent electric hub motors or independently controlled brakes ...
    • Vehicle Dynamic Modelling and Parameter Identification for an Autonomous Vehicle 

      Van Gennip, Matthew (University of Waterloo, 2018-12-19)
      For autonomous vehicles to be feasible, a fast and accurate model of the vehicle dynamics is required due to the complexity of the task. There are many different aspects to a driverless vehicle, including path planning, ...
    • Vehicle Lateral and Longitudinal Velocity Estimation Using Machine Learning Algorithms 

      Fathazam, Amir (University of Waterloo, 2022-01-17)
      Prediction and estimation of states are of great importance for vehicle control and safety. The conventional observers are designed and used vastly in the automotive industry to fulfill this objective. However, the vehicle ...
    • Vehicle Stability Control Considering the Driver-in-the-Loop 

      Khosravani, Saeid (University of Waterloo, 2016-08-04)
      A driver‐in‐the‐loop modeling framework is essential for a full analysis of vehicle stability systems. In theory, knowing the vehicle’s desired path (driver’s intention), the problem is reduced to a standard control ...
    • Vehicle Tracking in Occlusion and Clutter 

      McBride, Kurtis (University of Waterloo, 2008-01-08)
      Vehicle tracking in environments containing occlusion and clutter is an active research area. The problem of tracking vehicles through such environments presents a variety of challenges. These challenges include vehicle ...
    • Vehicle Tracking in Outdoor Environments using 3D Models 

      Nathalie, El Nabbout (University of Waterloo, 2008-07-23)
      There has been a growth in demand for advancing algorithms in surveillance applications concerning moving vehicles where analysis of traffic has a potential application to security, traffic management (congestion and ...
    • Velocity scaling of high-speed turbulent boundary layer flows with wall heat transfer 

      Younes, Khaled (University of Waterloo, 2021-07-19)
      The law of the wall has been a staple in collapsing the mean velocity profiles of seemingly very different turbulent channel and boundary layer flows into one single, semi-analytical function. Accordingly, it has equipped ...
    • VEmap: A Visualization Tool for Evaluating Emotional Responses in Virtual Environments 

      Zhu, Hong (University of Waterloo, 2009-06-19)
      VEMap (virtual emotion map) can be seen as an advanced application of virtual environment (VE) technology to aid with design activities in architecture and urban planning, which can assist designers to understand users’ ...
    • VENICE OF LAGOS - Reviving the fishing culture in Makoko through Aquaponics 

      Afun-Ogidan, Folusho Ashish (University of Waterloo, 2019-09-23)
      Lagos, Nigeria is a rapidly growing mega-city that faces issues such as overpopulation, pollution, waste management, sanitation, poverty among a host of others. The coastal nature of Lagos causes the city to experience ...
    • Venture Capital Investment under Private Information 

      Narayanan, Meyyappan (University of Waterloo, 2011-06-21)
      Many venture capitalists (VCs) use the “VC method” of valuation where they use judgment to estimate a probability of successful exit while determining the ownership share to demand in exchange for investing in a venture. ...
    • Verbal Repetition in the Reappraisal of Contamination-Related Thoughts 

      Watson, Chris (University of Waterloo, 2008-01-25)
      Acceptance and Commitment Therapy is a therapeutic approach that emphasizes the alteration of the relationship one has towards one’s thoughts, rather than attempting to change the content of thoughts. It seeks to promote ...
    • Verification of Pipelined Ciphers 

      Lam, Chiu Hong (University of Waterloo, 2009-01-29)
      The purpose of this thesis is to explore the formal verification technique of completion functions and equivalence checking by verifying two pipelined cryptographic circuits, KASUMI and WG ciphers. Most of current methods ...
    • Verification of temporal properties involving multiple interacting objects 

      Naeem, Nomair A. (University of Waterloo, 2013-10-24)
      Defects that arise due to violating a prescribed order for executing statements or executing a disallowed sequence of statements can be hard to detect since the sequence is often spread over multiple functions and source ...
    • Verifying Mutable Systems 

      Scott, Joseph (University of Waterloo, 2017-10-23)
      Model checking has had much success in the verification of single-process and multi-process programs. However, model checkers assume an immutable topology which limits the verification in several areas. Consider the security ...
