A New Method for Educational Assessment, Inspired by Big Data

Are higher marks in mathematics or science indicative of higher marks in other subjects, such as reading and spelling? And conversely, are higher marks in reading or spelling indicative of higher marks in, say, mathematics?

A Framework for Travelling Fires in Structural Design

Conceptual structural design for the safety of buildings in Canada is inherently prescriptive and an unsuitable quantifier for accurate estimation of life safety. Design for fire in Canada is currently done using a standardized method that assumes that a fire will be contained within the room it started. Recent studies have developed a new methodology, travelling fire, which better approximates the behavior of fire within large areas.

High-frequency ultrasound and optical coherent tomography – application for imaging, diagnosis, and measurements on samples of soft and hard tissues

The goal of the study is to research, test and compare imaging, diagnostic, and quantitative assessment capabilities of the high-frequency ultrasound (HFU) technology and the optical coherent tomography (OCT) for dental applications. A set of samples (possibly hard and soft tissues) will be specifically prepared by the research team from the host university and then imaged, and analyzed in order to determine anatomical features and possible diseases conditions. A newly developed scanning acoustic microscope as well as a prototype of a dental ultrasonic system will be used in this study.
