      Interrupted tensile tests, performed between room temperature (RT) and 250°C, were used to simulate warm forming of an AA3003/AA4045 brazing sheet. Brazing performance was predicted from sagging distance measurements after ...
    • The Saliva Exposome for Monitoring of Individuals’ Health Trajectories 

      Bessonneau, Vincent; Pawliszyn, Janusz; Rappaport, Stephen M. (Environmental Health Perspectives - United States Federal Government, 2017-07-20)
      Background: There is increasing evidence that environmental, rather than genetic, factors are the major causes of most chronic diseases. By measuring entire classes of chemicals in archived biospecimens, exposome-wide ...

      Cook, Richard J.; Zhong, Yujie (Wiley, 2015-03-15)

      Medeiros, Rafael Sachett; Wong, Alexander; Scharcanski, Jacob (Elsevier, 2018-06-01)
      Dealing with large images is an on-going challenge in image segmentation, where many of the current methods run into computational and/or memory complexity issues. This work presents a novel decoupled sub-graph compression ...

      Merritt, Olivia; Purdon, Christine (British Psychological Society, 2020-05-04)
      Objectives. Fear of receiving compassion from others, expressing compassion to others, and being compassionate towards oneself have been identified as potentially important factors in the persistence of depression, stress ...
    • School start time changes in the COMPASS study: associations with youth sleep duration, physical activity, and screen time 

      Patte, Karen A.; Qian, Wei; Cole, Adam G.; Faulkner, Guy; Chaput, Jean-Philippe; Carson, Valerie; Leatherdale, Scott T. (Elsevier, 2018-10-12)
      Background To date, no longitudinal population-based studies of school start times have been conducted within Canada. School schedule changes provided an opportunity to examine start times in association with youth sleep, ...

      Sample slides to accompany the book chapter: Weaver, K. D., Mercer, K., & Lamont, G. (2021). “The RADAR framework for evaluating sources of information.” In S. Rowland & L. Kuchel (Eds.) Science + SciComm + Work: A guide ...
    • A Scoping Review of Frailty and Acute Care in Middle-Aged and Older Individuals with Recommendations for Future Research 

      Hogan, David B.; Maxwell, Colleen J.; Afilalo, Jonathan; Arora, Rakesh C.; Bagshaw, Sean; Basran, Jenny; Bergman, Howard; Bronskill, Susan; Carter, Caitlin A.; Dixon, Elijah; Hemmelgarn, Brenda; Madden, Kenneth; MITNITSKI, ARNOLD; Rolfson, Darryl; Stelfox, Henry; Tam-Tham, Helen; Wunsch, Hannah (Canadian Geriatrics Society, 2017-03-31)
      There is general agreement that frailty is a state of heightened vulnerability to stressors arising from impairments in multiple systems leading to declines in homeostatic reserve and resiliency, but unresolved issues ...
    • Score tests based on a finite mixture model of Markov processes under intermittent observation 

      Jiang, Shu; Cook, Richard J. (Wiley, 2019-07-20)
      A mixture model is described, which accommodates different Markov processes governing disease progression in a finite set of latent classes. We give special attention to the setting in which individuals are examined ...
    • Score Tests for Association Under Response-dependent Sampling Designs for Expensive Covariates 

      Lawless, Jerald F. (Oxford Journals, 2015-11-27)
      Response-dependent sampling is widely used in settings where certain variables are expensive to obtain. Estimation has been thoroughly investigated but recent applications have emphasized tests of association for expensive ...
    • Scrappy: Using Scrap Material as Infill to Make Fabrication More Sustainable 

      Wall, Ludwig Wilhelm; Jacobson, Alec; Vogel, Daniel; Schneider, Oliver (ACM Press, 2021-05-06)
      We present a software system for fused deposition modelling 3D printing that replaces infill material with scrap to reduce material and energy consumption. Example scrap objects include unused 3D prints from prototyping ...
    • Searching for a DNAzyme version of the leadzyme 

      Saran, Runjhun; Chen, Qingyun; Liu, Juewen (Springer, 2015-10-12)
      The leadzyme refers to a small ribozyme that cleaves a RNA substrate in the presence of Pb2+. In an optimized form, the enzyme strand contains only two unpaired nucleotides. Most RNA-cleaving DNAzymes are much longer. Two ...
    • Searching for a perceived gaze direction using eye tracking 

      Itier, Roxane J.; Palancia, Adam (Association for Research in Visison and Ophthalmology, 2011-02-01)
      The purpose of the current study was to use eye tracking to better understand the “stare-in-the-crowd effect”—the notion that direct gaze is more easily detected than averted gaze in a crowd of opposite-gaze distractors. ...
    • Secure Comics: An Interactive Comic Series for Improving Cyber Security and Privacy 

      Zhang-Kennedy, Leah; Biddle, Robert; Chiasson, Sonia (Scienceopen, 2017-07)

    • Seeing Double at Memorial University: Two WorldCat Local Usability Studies 

      Fahey, Sue; Gordon, Shannon; Rose, Crystal (The Editorial Board of Partnership: The Canadian Journal of Library and Information Practice and Research, 2011)
      Obtaining user feedback is valuable yet often overlooked, so when Memorial University Libraries launched OCLC’s WorldCat Local discovery tool for Fall 2010, usability testing was a logical next step. Two branches, each ...
    • Segregation of chain ends to the surface of a polymer melt: effect of surface profile versus chain discreteness 

      Mahmoudi, Pendar; Matsen, Mark (Springer, 2016)
      Silberberg has argued that the surface of a polymer melt behaves like a reflecting boundary on the random-walk statistics of the polymers. Although this is approximately true, independent studies have shown that violations ...
