Delivering Moderate-Income Rental through Mixed-Tenure Housing in Metro Vancouver: Market and Policy Challenges and Opportunities
Ignite play is developing a social media package which will make healthier living more fun and easier. An important component of this package is social game and reward system that encourages users to make changes in their lifestyle. This project will involve the development of a game design (in terms of prototype or series of prototypes) which will help:
1. Attract and engage users,
2. promote virality (spread to other users),
3. promote stickiness (ability to sustain users),
4. provide incentives for people to engage in healthier behaviours, and
Assessing Small Mammal Community Assemblages and Population Dynamics across Multiple Geographic Scales on the Canadian Prairies
The Wind Engineering, Energy and Environment (WindEEE) Dome, the world’s first hexagonal wind tunnel, represents a technological breakthrough in the study of wind-related phenomena as it has the capability of physically simulating high intensity wind systems – including tornados, downbursts, gust fronts or low-level nocturnal currents – that cannot be created in any of the existing wind tunnels.
Geomorphic Principles used in Natural Channel Design: The State of River Restoraiton in Southern Ontario
Biomechanical Assessment of the Emergency Medical Bag for Association of Municipal Emergency Services of Ontario
The purpose of the project is to perform a biomechanical evaluation of the bags, and lifting techniques that are preformed by paramedics on a daily basis. The intern will spend 1.5 months in Eastern Ontario, with approximately 2 weeks in the area surrounding Kingston interacting with and observing lifting techniques and conditions under which paramedics lift bags while on the job. These observations will direct a moked-up-in-lab investigation into the peak compressive, shear and cumulative forces played on the body while lifting medical bags.
This project is focused on improving mining safety through newly developed yielding rock bolts. Extensive testing work and mechanistic study will be carried out to optimize the design of the new product. Predictive models will be developed to describe the performance of the product during occurrence of rock bursts. The industrial partner will benefit significantly from the project with validated and improved product design. This project addresses an important safety issue in the mining industry and therefore will bring economic benefit to Ontario.
