  • Increasing the temperature stability of environmentally friendly drilling and completion fluids based on organic brine. 

    Kaminski, Lauren (Robert Gordon University Faculty of Design and Technology, School of Engineering, 2013-10-30)
    KAMINSKI, L. 2013. Increasing the temperature stability of environmentally friendly drilling and completion fluids based on organic brine. Robert Gordon University, MRes thesis.
    Formates provide an already superior system, designed to complement synthetic polymers and extend their temperature capabilities as drilling fluids. However, as HPHT drilling continues to move into more harsh environments ...
  • On pruning and feature engineering in random forests. 

    Fawagreh, Khaled (Robert Gordon University Faculty of Design and Technology, School of Computing Science and Digital Media, 2016-10-01)
    FAWAGREH, K. 2016. On pruning and feature engineering in random forests. Robert Gordon University, PhD thesis.
    Random Forest (RF) is an ensemble classification technique that was developed by Leo Breiman over a decade ago. Compared with other ensemble techniques, it has proved its accuracy and superiority. Many researchers, ...
  • Evidence for functional drift of bacterial isolates in response to cyanobacterial microcystin-lr and multiple peptide degradation in paucibacter toxinivorans. 

    Kreitz, Johanna (Robert Gordon University Faculty of Health and Social care, School of Pharmacy and Life Sciences, 2016-07-01)
    KREITZ, J. 2016. Evidence for functional drift of bacterial isolates in response to cyanobacterial microcystin-lr and multiple peptide degradation in paucibacter toxinivorans. Robert Gordon University, MPhil thesis.
    Bacterial bioremediation has been proposed as an efficient, low cost and ecologically safe method to clean vital water reservoirs from cyanobacterial peptide toxins microcystins (MCs). In previous work carried out in 2008 ...
  • Preparation, characterization and testing of inorganic ceramic membranes. 

    Ogbuke, Ikechukwu (Robert Gordon University Faculty of Design and Technology, School of Engineering, 2013-10-01)
    OGBUKE, I. 2013. Preparation, characterization and testing of inorganic ceramic membranes. Robert Gordon University, PhD thesis.
    A novel approach to enhance the concentration of Carbon dioxide to economic scale using low efficient Inorganic Ceramic membranes has been proposed. This was achieved by the addition of second and third stage permeation ...
