The Rate-limiting Step in a Glucose/Oxygen Biofuel cell
<p> In this thesis, the rate-limiting step is determined in a biofuel cell with a bio-anode, a Nation membrane and a conventional, platinum-based cathode using reference electrode method. It was discovered by surprise that...
Uncertainty Analysis of a Two-Dimensional Hydrodynamic Model
<p> The objective of this thesis was to undertake an uncertainty analysis on the outputs from a two-dimensional hydrodynamic model. The analysis utilized an application of the Resource Management Associates' RMA2 model for ...
The Performance of Tuned Liquid Dampers with Different Tank Geometries
<p> Tuned Liquid Dampers (TLDs) are increasingly being used to suppress the dynamic vibration of tall buildings. An equivalent mechanical model is essential for rapid analysis and design of a TLD. The most common TLD ...
Study of Optimal Deposition Conditions for an Inductively Coupled Plasma Chemical Vapour Deposition (ICP-CVD) System
<p> High-density plasma technology is becoming increasingly attractive for
the deposition of dielectric films such as silicon dioxide, silicon nitride and silicon
oxynitride. In particular, inductively coupled plasma chemical vapor...
MacSphere is·McMaster University’s Institutional Repository (IR). The purpose of an IR is to bring together all of a University's research under one umbrella, with an aim to preserve and provide access to that research. The research and scholarly output included in MacSphere has been selected and deposited by the individual university departments and centres on campus.
To contribute to McMaster's Institutional Repository, please sign on to MacSphere with your MAC ID. If you have any questions, please contact the Office of Scholarly Communication.
Students wishing to deposit their PhD or Masters thesis, please follow the instructions outlined by the School of Graduate Studies.
