Non-destructive Thermographic Stress Analysis of a New Composite Plate for Femur Fracture Fixation

Program: Accelerate

University: Ryerson University

Discipline: Engineering, mechanical

Partner: Martin Orthopaedic Biomechanics Lab

Sector: Life sciences

Intern:

Faculty Supervisor: 
Dr. Habiba Bougherara

The present aim of this study is to use an infrared thermography technique to non-destructively measure the three-dimensional surface stress field in a synthetic femur fracture model repaired with a new composite plate vs a clinically-used metal plate. To this end, there are three main phases of this study. First, the infrared thermography system will be calibrated, which is needed because the composite plate is made of several layers of woven material which have differing material properties resulting in differing thermographic properties.

Sediment Removal Frequency Optimization for Wet-Detention Stormwater Management Ponds

Program: Accelerate

Discipline: Engineering, civil

Sector: Environmental industry

Sediment build-up in stormwater management ponds decreases their overall capacity to hold water and reduces their efficiency, in terms of controlling pollution. For this reason, and in order to comply with government regulations, municipalities must remove the sediment periodically. Determining when maintenance is required is difficult because it depends on a number of factors, and the actual cost of sediment removal from a wet pond is difficult to predict.

Measuring Sustainability in the Supply Chain at TD Bank Group

Analyzing Gaps in Diversity Practices at The Scarborough Hospital using the Diversity Institute’s Diversity Audit Tool

Program: Accelerate

University: Ryerson University

Discipline: Business

Partner: Scarborough Hospital

Sector: Life sciences

Intern: 
Kyle Willmott
Faculty Supervisor: 
Drs. Wendy Cukier & James Tiessen

This project is a systemic review and assessment of diversity strategies currently in place at The Scarborough Hospital using the Diversity Institute’s Diversity Audit Tool (DAT). The DAT was developed based on research into leading practices and offers a lens through which diversity strategies can be analyzed; this will be the first time that it is applied to an organization within the healthcare sector.

Diversity Snapshot of Hospitals in the Greater Toronto Area
